Until this weekend I'd only managed to get off work once to go hunting. Finally get to the place late friday night, get set up in the stand and about 30 minutes after daylight have a doe run across in front of me like her hairs on fire. 40 yards behind her came to hog dogs running right behind her. Now I've heard a million times that they "cain't control where the dogs run", but these looked like they had either shock or gps collars on and were running deer on private property.

there is a solution to that problem...........Some may not like it but it will put a end to it....There was a huge debate about this years ago....Me personally
catch one of them....turn the collar off
call the warden
let him come out and turn it back on and let them come on the property to find it....
Trespassing to start off with ....

I'm never interested in more regulation of anything but stories like this make me wonder if hunting hogs with dogs will remain legal.

Ha ha ha I had a similar experience years ago the only year I ever hunted in the pine timber. That was when I found out a lot of them East Texas boyz had a lease that started at the Sabine and ended at the Rio Grande. Nope don't want any part of it.

I had hog doggers once. It is one of the most maddening things that can happen while you are hunting.
They trespass on purpose, and they know they are doing it, then make every excuse in the world.

They raise 'em up that way. We're in the middle of negotiating an offer made by the neighbor to buy our share of the surface of a small tract that's been in our family since 1899. Once that's done, I'll be shed of that country for good, 'cept for the small amount of "mailbox money" from royalties off some horizontal lines underneath it. Good riddance. To quote a line from the movie Bernie, "Them people got more tattoos than teeth."

I'm generally not if favor of more laws, but we have got have better reinforcement of the ones on the books already. Trespassing needs to be aggressively prosecuted, and that includes trespass by dogs. DAs need to be willing required to prosecute based upon picture or video evidence. Virtually every county in Texas has a leash law.

I would also support a clarification to the existing law on dogs harassing livestock to include wild game on private property.

Born and raised in east TX - do all my WT hunting on my place there now.

Yep, there’s problem children there. And, yep, you’ve got to be aggressive in combatting them. That means cooperation among neighbors by getting to know them (instead of viewing them all as scum), aggressive monitoring of your place, and prosecuting the bad guys. Same as with any other place anywhere else in the state. East TX seems worse to some because there’s more people there and generally more and smaller tracts of land than in other places.

There’s scum everywhere-and good folks everywhere too. A lot of the generalizations are just folks wanting to lift themselves up by putting other regional groups down.

Not without some real risks.

Why shoot dogs just doing what they are bred/trained to do? These aren’t feral packs. The people are the problem-not the dogs.

If the dogs are chasing whitetail on your property you are within your rights to shoot them, and that is exactly what I would have done.
