Ironic that no one complains about hounds and horses running all over the countryside. Put on 1 deer chase and every one has a complaint. Thats right in those Counties the Fox is unlawful to kill.I guess that is why the rabbit population is way down.

My daughter used to do the dog pony act years ago. It really hasn't anything to do with chasing some fox, its all about "being there", if you know what I mean.

The deer population needs to be thinned down, but the problem is all the hunters that give the legitimate ones a bad name. I have seen hunters sitting on the side of the road smoking cigarettes waiting for their dogs to bring the deer to them. That isn't real hunting. I guess they are afraid of going into the woods by themselves. Also, a real hunter will use the meat they get and not just cut the antlers off and leave the rest to rot in the sun. I used to work for a rock quarry and the guys would hunt but they had stands out in the woods and they also used all the meat they got. They were real hunters. Target Rocks, if you want people to stop complaining about hunters then do something about the bad hunters who by their actions hurt the legitimate ones.

I thought we were addressing the local fox hounders.
