    dogs chasing deer.

    So I was hunting in the Kaimai's a few weeks back. When a hind came running into sight and up a bank straight toward us. My brother took the shoot and dropped it. A minute later we were joined by 4 burnt out dogs with gps collars.
    Another few minutes and their owner approached saw we had killed the hind.
    He said sweet as and went on his way.

    Is this common? I always thought it was a big no no to let your dogs chase anything but pigs?

    Common yes mode of hunting for individual from Katikati ethical? For my part no I don't think the venison would be at it's best from the stress of being chased by dogs.

    Defiantly a no no in pig hunting circles...with track & train collars nowadays this bad habit should be much easier to break

    I guess the question is were they targeting deer with the dogs or were they pig dogs that got side tracked?
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Aongatete area.
    Definitely piggies in there.
    We bumped into him again on the north south track as we were carring out. He mentioned that they(deer) always run that way.
    So I figured he must let them chase deer often.

    I'm not complaining, each to there own if its legit.
    Just curious.

    With gps collars these days, guys just let their dogs roam for miles. What happens when the get hold of a sow or piglet when your 1km away? The dogs usually just chew it to bits

    At the end of the day, dogging deer is probably the oldest form of hunting them that there is.

    Dogging sambar with a team of dogs requires a bit more thought as more often than not they are aiming to position themselves so the deer is chased towards them.

    When I was living in the north island I went hunting of couple of times with some friends of my cousin and they doged deer. Doged venison tastes like shit and chewy compared to a stalked upspooked shot deer.
