I need a link to the speakers.  :drool: I just got some moose calls for my phone to. The types of calls are endless!
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Be wary and use discretion if your going to pull the trigger on domestic breeds on private property no matter what they are doing, unless you fear for your life or the life of other humans.

The west side of the state would probably arrest you for doing so, so I wouldn't post to much more info about it.  They arrested a guy a few years back for hitting a opossum.  Just take care of your business and go on with it.  Those that post it on a public forum chance getting in trouble.   :twocents:

Still stumped on how you hit that 500 yard shot and didn't get all those close yotes.   :dunno:   ;)

I just wish we could kick the owners of dogs like that in the Nutz! Not the dogs fault but they pay the price... Doesn't mean it what you did is wrong, IMO  >:(

I caught a wild/feral dog in a leg trap years ago. shoulda shot it, but I tried to let it go. Got bit on the knee in the process and had to go through the rabies treatment (NOT FUN).
So if you encounter them and do happen to get bitten. Go to the Doctor. :twocents:

Had a similar story.  Feral dog was injured and I fed it for a week or two, was trying to topically treat the infection and it tried to bite me.  Didn't break the skin but it pissed me off enough that ..... well, he didn't ever do it again.

An orchard owner told me that dogs were damaging his equipment, chewing up the drip lines and hoses on his machinery. He shot one with his shotgun. The dog ran off his property. The cop came and was going to charge him. The neighbor that said that it was his dog ticked the cop off so bad that the orchard owner was not charged with shooting the dog. The neighbor was not going to have "his dog" treated for the gun shot wound, even when the orchard owner offered to pay the vet bill. Yes a lot of dogs are abandoned by the orchard workers when they leave. You have to be careful when shooting wild dogs. The dog that he shot was an abandoned dog.
May you have a target rich environment!

I know I am going to hear cr*p for this but here it goes.

I am a dog owner and he's my best friend but dogs/cats off the owner's property without tag/collar are fair game and I'm not talking about a lost dog in a neighborhood. If you let your animals roam around the woods on public lands or other peopleís property without it being licensed your asking for something bad to happen, weather itís legal or not.

Maybe itís me being pissed about all the stray cats and idiot cat owners who think they donít need to pay licensing fees or need to keep their animals on leash and on their property.

With that said I got my rescue beagle from the eastside and thatís where most rescue dogs come from east to west.

With that I would feel horrible to say the least if my dog got shot due to my own incompetence or inability to control him but I would only be able to blame myself.

i dont think people are really talking about a stray dog or cat on his or her property, its about dogs that have been forgotten about by there owners and have reverted back to the wild and are chasing deer and elk and bothering farm animals or in this guys case coming into his game calls with bad intentions on their minds, like i said before most people with good common sense and just descent values wont have to worry about there dog gettn shot, i will tell you this though if my neihbors pitbulls get out and get on my property, which is a private small 5 acres, then YEE HAW IT OPEN SEASON, and it is sick but i will take pleasure in it, they are terrible dogs and i think the *censored* raises them to fight, they seem like they want to kill a fella anytime you walk by :bash:

My son had a room mate that was from the Philippines. When asked what some of the things that were hard to get used to here in the states, he said.      " Stray dogs...." Only the rich people had dogs and they stayed on the roof tops... Hey Ma... Whats for dinner.........

my bowhunting spot is a family plot with father/mother homesteaded on 160 acres.  their daughter's family live on the property and so does their son.  so, 3 houses on 160 acres.  2 years deer hunting there, the son's dog has been a thorn in my side multiple times.  last year late season i was walking to my stand and the dog was chasing deer in the same area.  daughter's husband wants me to shoot the dog, but i'm seeing no good from that!  but  MAN it gets tiring having deer chased away by a dog!

 :tup:   :tup:

I trapped a stray cat IN MY SHOP, and all of a sudden there is a big uproar (against my better judgement, I did not shoot it, though if it had been after my chickens I would have)!  Another person's cat has not been seen for a couple of weeks, it runs loose and she even leaves the island for a week at a time, I've been blamed for shooting it even though I have never seen it even in my yard.  Never mind the huge number of racoons we have around here.  Another neighbor leaves for two weeks and just leaves her dog loose for my daughter to feed once a day.  Trapped that one in my racoon trap near the chicken coop one night, returned it to her.

People that do not take care of their animals have no room to complain if something bad happens to their animals.  Wish they would enforce the cat licensing laws, there wouldn't be a problem with funding then!

I'm of the mind, if you own an animal-and "love" it, keep track of it.

If it doesn't have a collar, its a coyote. It it DOES have a collar, but is on MY property, its a coyote.
This same theory works for cats too.....

Yea, here on the dry side, some folks believe they should just let their animals run loose. I say if you see them step one foot off of their property, shoot 'em.

Tired of hearing how so many folks love their dogs, and think they should be allowed to run free...yet they never think that all that "free" land belongs to somebody, who may have animals on it "they" love.
