Hunter finds every pile of deer droppings and eats it..Is there any i can do besides tell him no? He isn't on a leash when we are in the woods, and by the time i get there its all gone..yuckie

I have a yellow who was not supposed to make it past five because of her hips. She eats any kind of crap, but alot of deer crap and other dog crap. Shes eleven now and doesnt walk to good but she has all heart. So I dont know, it has not hurt her.

Mine likes to roll in it....I don't know if I'd prefer him to eat it, but at least you don't have anything to clean up.

I guess I would say that you should use a check cord or some long piece of rope. I understand that its nice to let them run uninhibited sometimes, I do it too, but if they are not under your control and they are doing undesireable things then you need to decide if you want them to stop. If you do then you need to keep him on some form of a leash to correct him when he does it. I used a 30ft cod and then a 50ft'r, and now if it ever does happen I have the e-collar.

yes.. but to many trees ..long stems and down trees and branches the rope gets so tangled in.. Theres no way to do with in the woods with a rope for me anyways..I wont use a e- collar.... I am not against them, don't get me wrong, i just wont use them on my dogs.. Thats why i was asking besides telling him to, taking him away from the crap, was there another secret out here i didn't know yet lol..

Hes a male dog after all, all a part of being a dog, just wanted to make sure he wont get super sick or anything.. In case i am not super women that day and miss it..

My GWP loved the stuff as a puppy. We went on a walk every AM were deer poop was everywhere and he would chow. An old timer told me that it was bad business because he was likely to turn into a deer chaser. I broke him of it with vocal commands when he was little and reinforced it with the collar when he got older.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.
    • FishinCT
      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
