About midway through season I found I have a new small pack that runs our property daily. I actually had a couple of the dogs come up on my porch and act as friendly as all get out. I let the pass unharmed but many times this season they ruined my hunt and right now they seem to be on max deer chase mode. It’s easy for them...they come to the plot or feeder and run everything out of the country that is near...it’s gotta stop...
The dogs saved your target buck's life. A big chunk of roadkill and a half dozen conibear traps could about take care of the problem overnight.
I heard back through the grapevine turns out it was my neighbor that shot his own dog for killing his daughter's cat.
