"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a brave and scarce man, hated and scorned. When the cause succeeds, however, the timid join him... for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -Mark Twain
He makes a very interesting case and point. I would shake the hand of the the guy that said he retrived his dog from my place without disturbing me or livestock/game after midnight. It also seems odd that there is laws to cutting dogs loose and not being able to retrive/chace them, baddly written?
It just don't seem right to do harm to another man's hounds , unless they were chaseing or bothering stock . Or doing damage . But for doing what they are breed for is just wrong ! Just my two cents worth . Regards Bullet
We are all travelers in the wilderness of the world , and the best that we can hope to find in our travels is true friendship ! Like that found in the Brotherhood of Hunters !
Considering the tight bond between a hound and hunter, a land owner is likely to get himself into more trouble than he bargained for by taking such extreme measures.

Houndhunting...America's ORIGINAL pasttime.
I do not like having hounds cross onto my property. Whenever I see a hound hunter near my property, I ask them nicely to keep his dogs off my clearly marked property if possible. And if they do go onto my property, they must try to get the dogs gathered and off as soon as possible. I explain the reason to them, is that I spend a lot of time in the woods deer hunting, and don't want the deer all spooked out by dogs and people walking all over.
Every hunter I';ve had this conversation with, seemed to understand my position, and with the exception of an occasional trail camera picture of a hound, I haven't had any problems with coon or bear runners.
(Now if I could only figure out how to keep the deer poaching SOB's off the land.)
A day spent in the woods is Never a waste of time!
