I have read several replies to the topic of trespassers and dogs and such. But this weekend I faced it for the first time. My family deer hunts every year and we have for generations. We also hunt with dogs. At this time we have 3 dogs. We hunt national forest land and the moutain area north of our place. But every so often the dogs get passed us running a deer and head south to the river. Well Sat. morning they did just that and as hard as we tried we could not get ahead of them until they got to the highway. My kids and I parked on the side of the highway and grabbed dogs as soon as they came out onto the side. This woman came stomping down the road. Her first question was about why we were on the land on the other side of the highway which is not even hers it belongs to the pastor of the church we go to. I tried being nice and explain what happened and that we had not even been on her land and WE HAD NOT!!! Our dogs ran across the corner of her place they could not have been on her place more than a couple minutes because they were running a deer and we could hear them. Well she threatened federal marshalls, shooting the dogs, on and on. My question is why is anyone so hostile just because some animals came across land did not stop did not bother anything. I own land and there is no way that i would be that way. Now if our dogs were just prowling and bothering things then yes you have the right to do what you need to do.
