What Do You Do When

your neighbors dogs are harassing your deer?

Old photo, but real topic. One reason we have standing orders to shoot every stray we see in SC that crosses property lines....

    i wouldn't think those dogs could run him down like that.    But with the mouth open they may have worn him down over a period of time.   I'd be pissed to see that but at the same time if a buck can't get past domestic dogs i would think Coyotes would have killed him by now.

    I would burn someone's house down that shot one of my dogs. 
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Stray dogs are feral dogs as far as I’m concerned, and a feral dog is a feral hog is a feral rat is a feral cat. All threats to the ecosystem that need to be removed.

    Why would you say something like that? You’d have no idea who or what would be in the house you’d burn down. You could be murdering infants in their cribs because of a situation that’s ultimately your fault if you’re being the kind of irresponsible dog owner that is being discussed. I’m presuming that you wouldn’t be the kind of person that would let your dogs free range 24-7 over your neighbor’s property. The same sorts of dogs we’re talking about here are livestock killers. These aren’t well kept hunting dogs that have accidentally strayed over the property line.

    Then you probably don't let your dogs roam.

    Pets are pets, those dogs in the photo are something else. 

    These kinds of posts are pot stirrers for sure.

    Best to stay mum, that way you don't know if it got bit by a snake, et by a bear, hit by a car, or ate something bad.

    I would shoot the buck and worry about dogs later. Definitely not worth committing arson! Book em Dano.

    Probably a little bit of both.

     Hey, I'm on your side Art. Look back, I've always defended responsible dog hunting, I think it's a fantastic way to hunt, but there's a pretty big difference between a ranging old hunt dog that wandered where he isn't supposed to be and a flea bitten mongrel that slipped over the tracks from the hood. I have to ask, do the dogs in the pic above look like hunting hounds from a responsible owner? (I didn't think so either.)

    .Just so you  know, the area we hunt in SC is nowhere near a dog hunt area and nowhere near another large enough parcel to support any other hunting, so the decision is a bit easier than it might be somewhere else.

    In the scenario from the photo above, I too would drop the deer first and then start popping dogs as they scattered. I never knew seasoned hunting dogs to scatter at a shot either, BTW.

    You're not the irresponsible dog owner, Art. We both know that. Your dogs also reflect it. Easy enough for me to see here, or in the field.

    None of those 3 are hunting dogs. More than likely something was wrong with the buck before the dogs got ahold of it. That buck could do circles around all 3 of em easily until they got tired. Regardless of what was wrong with deer at first is bigger problem my opinion. Those dogs look like they haven't missed any meals so someone owns them. They are ones should be held accountable but we all know how that works. That's just _ullshit in my opinion 3 shots would have been fired and I'd let buck go do his thing if he still had it in him unless you were planning on tagging the deer for yourself if I had my choice I wouldnt want the meat. That deers been rode hard and fixing to be put away wet. 3 worthless muts

    people shooting dogs just for trespassing boils my blood..

    dogs get out of pocket all the time even when fenced, they chew thru chain link for petes sakes.

    I don't have a problem if a dog is attacking livestock or a human or another pet..

    deer aren't your livestock or pet.

    shooting a dog because it walked on your property is a **** move.

    When I first hunted PA the regulations ask you to shoot any dog harassing deer.  Always found it odd that a State agency would put that in their publications.  Hunting rabbits and birds with dogs was fine but not deer.  That request is no longer there but an indication of OK as of a few years back.
    The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. Hopefully the next man is not dropping his stones on the mountain you are trying to move.

    If the dog comes when called, acts friendly, then it's treated with all the love I show my own pets.  But, if it acts afraid or threatening, I will end it as efficiently as possible.  And feel no regrets about it.
    We TNR stray cats.  They become quite friendly after, and become almost like pets.  The local population of strays has dwindled from a dozen or so down to 3.  Dogs get taken to the pound, so their owners can retrieve them.
    If a dog doesn't act friendly, then it's only a matter of time before it DOES go after a pet or person.
    my bird dogs will not come to a stranger, so you'd shoot them?

    The victim wouldn’t testify because you told him you’d burn his house down?

    I seen both sides of the story. 

    Been in ga when the neighbors been warned many times to stop having their dogs chasing deer on others private property . 
    After many warning. Sss and rest of the dogs never came on to the property. 

    I also been on small public fla partials. Surrounded by family homes where dogs came running by me with collars and knew they were just exploring and just moved them on. 

    Everyone has a different experience with the issues
