In the state I used to live, the law on dogs chasing deer read as such.............


"A citizen may shoot any dog he observes chasing deer. A game warden must shoot any dog he observes chasing deer"


So, if your dog is chasing deer there is a good chance it will get shot !

It looks like you are holding your phone vertically length-wise when you take your picture. Experiment. Turn your phone sideways to the left and/or the right before taking a picture and try posting those to see how they come out.

He said his dog chases deer out of his yard. I don't think there's any law that says a dog can't chase deer out of its own yard as long as the dog remains in its yard. Any citizen who shoots somebody else's dog that's on the dog's own property would be committing a crime.

But if the dog is running loose off its own property and is chasing deer (or someone's livestock) that dog is fair game to be killed by other citizen or game warden.

Perhaps you could try running a motion detector activated sprinkler system. It shoots water at intruders that come onto the property. I'm not actually recommending the particular Hav-a-heart and Orbit ones below, just posting these as a couple of examples of what's available and how it works.

I seriously doubt if a dog takes off chasing a deer he will stop right at the property line, turn around and come back.


Not unless he is wearing a strong shock collar.

There's deer all around here, but I've never seen one in my yard.

Good by problem.
Oh that is lovely. Evil smile.
Hunters kind of keep our deer under control, but my neighbor told me they have a "deer food" plot on the other side of the woods. It seems they don't want to completely eradicate the deer or decimate their population. They want to keep them around so they have something to hunt.

Get a Red Ryder BB Gun. An official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle.

Shoot the deer in the bum. Just don't shoot your eye out.

Unfortunately, our deer can't read the tags.
