exactly. my suggestion was not based on a moral reason at all. if being close enough to a major road or highway with lots of traffic is endangering the safety of the dogs, then maybe using an alternative method in those areas would be safer for the dogs.
i have coon hunted with dogs many, many times an we hunted on very large tracts of land that were not near any major roads or highways. as using dogs in Texas is illegal, most people either still hunt or stalk. if it were legal to use dogs in Texas for deer hunting, that IMO would be a personal prefernce, not a moral question. i gave up running coon dogs not because any moral reasons, but a matter of not having the time to devote to the sport. when i gave it up, i was newly married and had other obligations that became my priorities. a lot of my hunting and fishing activities took a back seat to things i had going on.
i just love it when someone wants to pin the liberal label on me!
