It is a dying sport. I love to hear a good dog race. Shrinking hunting properties and the ever present quest to grow trophy deer has spelled the death of dog hunters. A lot of non-dog hunters have no idea of the dedication and knowledge of the area that is required to successfully kill deer using dogs. Most are not killed ahead of the dog - but sneaking away or sneaking back in as soon as the dogs pass. Enjoy your bit of history while it lasts.
