I believe the less regulations the better off we all are, however; there is one restriction I wouldn't mind hitting the books - Hound hunting deer & bear. As a property owner I find it hard to hunt my own small farm b/c the hound hunters run everything off the land. If it happened occassionally I wouldn't be so bothered, but it happens almost every day of the season. If you put out enough hunters and keep the hounds running for 3 months, it makes it very difficult for quality game managment. Additionally my land is no longer private property as hounds and the hunters trespass despite being posted and warden visits. I've had my chickens killed, my trash cans invaded, and many shot up deer slowly die. This hunting technique is too invasive and requires some degree of consideration and safety that is not commonly seen. I've about had I can tolerate of this situation. Despite our season ending almost 3 months ago hounds still run game at all hours of the day. After sleepless nights, the livestock attacks, trash all over the yard, ruined hunts, wasted game and having witnessed a fawn get eaten last spring, I'm taking action. I'm taking up trapping. I've given all the hound owners notification traps will set on my property. If this doesn't fix the problem, I will join with others who will seek the banning of hound hunting. Sorry to the few houndsmen who are not slob hunters. I'd rather not seek regulatory action, you guys have any ideas.
