    Default How does German Shepard Taste?

    I was in my stand last night with about 20 solid minutes of shooting light left. I had a spike buck standing about 15 yards from me and I could tell there were more deer coming, I could hear them and he kept looking up on the hill. here comes the neighbors dog, he almost got the buck and scared the rest of them up the hill. the dog almost got it.......lol Just goes to show you, anything that can go wrong when bowhunting, will go wrong. just one of those days i guess.

    They taste like chicken. Dog is not too bad as long as you don't know that it is fido that is on the table.

    he was too fast! he got within 10 yards of the spike buck before the deer took off. The ironic thing is he has a shock collar and the whole shabang, nothing works for him. I recomended a new dog for that nice collar. if he does it again, he may get it.

    I'll be nice and put it this way.I Don't get up at 4am and go through all the things i have to do to get to my stand...just to have someone's dog run my deer off.I keep my hunting dog on a cable and on my property and i expect the people around me to do the same....that's all i'm going to say ...I love most pets "(I hate cats and nothing burns my a more than seeing some cat waiting under my bird feeders) but feel that if you own them you need to keep them on your own property.

    I have a few trophy cats. Well any way I think that in PA it is quite legal to shoot a dog that is chasing a deer. With your line of work I am sure you have a little pop gun to solve this problem. I would tell the owner that I thought it was coyote, if he found out.

    Haven't you ever had your huntin dog get away from you??? Do you ever hunt with a dog??? Haven't you ever went coon hunting and lost a dog??only to find him the next day???

    think before you shoot not every dog in the woods is evil.

    I second that...Most every state has laws that clearly state you must keep your pets contained on your own property ....During hunting season...i strongly support that law.

    He crossed the road and was approaching me while i was gettin geared up, then the owner called him back, 2 hours later is when he came in past my stand. He isn't a hunting dog, he is just out of control.

    Have you thought about talking to the owner. Maybe if you let them know when you are hunting, they will tie it up. Especially if they know it might not come home next time.

    I live in the country and yes I hunt with a dog for pheasents and quail and no I havent had a dog run off and i dont let them out to just run without watching them anytime I fork over $300-$400 for a dog im not going to let it run free its an investment I trane my dogs with a jerk line and shock collar
    I have seen first hand the damage your so called good dog can do to livestock more then once running horse threw barbed wire fence ripping the ears off calfs and chasing them until the calf die

    I would suggest if your dog is running off on you when hunting let it out of the car mile or so before u get to your hunting spot and have it run along side the car or trane it better
