Dogs chasing deer regs.

4 posts in this topic

What's the law on destroying dogs chasing deer,I had heard there was some changes made to not allow action during the hunting season.I would assume this would be to protect bird dogs that became seperated from owners but would apply to all dogs.Curious because some red coat idiots shot our neighbors' dog and are claiming it was chasing deer.I heard the shot and saw the dog still thrashing on the ground only about 10 yards from the guys in a plowed feild and they are claiming it was chasing a deer,there was no deer involved.

Found this on the DNR web site. Page 29 of the hunting regulations.

Dogs Pursuing Big Game

No person may allow their dog to chase or kill big game. Between January 1 and July 14 a dog that is observed wounding, killing, or pursuing in a way that endangers big game may be killed by any person. A peace officer or conservation officer may kill a dog that endangers big game any time of the year. The office or person is not liable for damages for killing the dog.

Important: Other hunting seasons are open before, during, and after the deer season. Many hunters use dogs to hunt upland game, waterfowl, rabbits, raccoons, foxes, and coyotes. Dogs may NOT be shot during fall hunting seasons, even if it is seen pursuing big game, except by a conservation pr peace officer.

If they shot and killed a dog they can be prosecuted. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Thanks that's what I thought.Hopefully my neighbor will pursue this even if it was only a "farm dog".One of our Brittany's went missing about a month ago and with people like this around I'm doubting the theft possability more so now.Wonder how many dogs go down each year during deer season uneccesarily.

Please urge your neighbor to follow up on this. And write down everything you can remember about the incident. It sounds to me, according to your description of the event, like the dog was killed by a couple jerks! Just what today's sportsmen need, more guys like that in the field. Jeez, there are enough of them now!!

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
