The alcoholic trespassing trash illegally hunting here will be dealt with. I will have some new guns for my collection.....I think hunting is great, it's the low class trash that hunts illegally that I object to. Also the guys that raise dogs and then after hunting the last hunt, they leave them running in the woods to starve to death. I see it every year.
Well I hope your not going to be like USLESS and chase em of with rifle on horseback!. just dig pungie pits.

If you've ever hunted quail in tall grass country, or thick brush, you're going to be glad you have a dog(s) on hand because otherwise you're going to be losing a lot of birds. Quail can be short of impossible to find if you drop them out there a ways in front of you. I've hunted quail both ways and have spent a lot of time searching for dead birds when a dog would have had them found immediately and you would have moved on with your hunt. There's nothing prettier than seeing a dog on point either. A good dog is a joy to hunt with. That being said, I can't stand guys that hunt coyotes with dogs. It's cruel and a lot of those guys think they can just go anywhere without respect to private land when their dogs get on the scent. We've had to run them off our land more than once. They'll run their dogs through cattle or anything else that suits them. That's not hunting.

I miss quail hunting, we would love to watch the dogs lock up on point, we have had many good ones, pointers, english setters, brittney spaneis. I go more for the dogs than the hunt but I do love a good mess of fried quail!

There's nothing better my friend. We used to always hunt Thanksgiving morning, bring in some quail and they'd end up being part of the feast. Rarely happens anymore though....

That's interesting, I've never heard of anyone hunting deer with dogs. Least ways not around here (northern Oklahoma).

I hunt because it gets me away from the stresses of my daily life, the woods are a great place for a nap, it can be a challenge at times, an arrow or a bullet is cheaper that the prices in the grocery store, it reminds me of when I was younger and my dad and I used it as a chance to bond, and for the most part, because it is the one time and place where I can do something that takes my mind off of being crippled. As a bonus, my wife and I get time together away from ringing phones and other family members. Just what came to mind off the top of my head.

When I was a boy learning to hunt with my dad in NC we used to go into the woods and wait for other hunter's dogs to push the deer to us. They would wiat in the feilds or by the road, and the dogs would push the deer into the swamp. The other hunters we were with never did figure out how dad and I used to tag out by the end of the second week of the season. If you have never tried it you should. It's a blast! Sometimes I still miss it.
