well decided to take a day off from hutning with dogs and just still hunt. was in the woods 45 minutes when a 9 point walked up on me. took him at 40 yards with my 870 and 00 buckshot. there are some pictures on my cardomain site if someone wants to post them for me.

hunting with dogs is a whole new ball game. and its actually very sporting. isn't it just the same as hunting upland game or rabbits with dogs? its a different kind of hunting that is challenging in its own ways.

Totally different. for upland game and rabbits a dog is used so you can actually see or shoot one. Without the dog your chances are slim. You are also talking different herd or flock numbers. there is also a size difference too. You wouldnt take a 80-100 yard shot at a rabbit that your dogs chased out. With a deer you could take a shot, it would lead to a lot more wounded deer.
I just think that there isnt the same amount of pride shooting a deer that was chased to you b dogs as it would be if you actually hunted it.

i guess for people that have never deer hunted with dogs it is hard to understand, but i enjoy hearing a good chase and working my own dogs in the woods. where i hunt and most counties around me it is shotgun only, and due to the terrian a 30-40 yard shot is almost always the max when your standing on the ground. its just 2 completely different sytles of hunting and everyone has their opinions about it.

Love dog hunting, however I still find time to appreciate still hunting and stalking during muzzle loading and bow seasons.

Whats that old saying " dont knock it till you try it". I have way more fun hunting with dogs and the guys in my hunt club than I could possibly have sitting up a tree. We have thick cover and buckshot and dogs is about the only way to move them in alot of areas. Its a whole lot of fun especially with a good bunch of guys around you.......
