took a youth who had never been hunting to cull a doe or spike for me. Poor guy shot and missed a doe.

Was going to bring him again the next day, but decided to set the trap and run snares as an added bonus to try and ensure he got something.

The next day we head out there about 12:30.

As I pull up to the trapp, looking through the trees I see a black thing with 4 legs in the trap. I holler back we got one boys.
I drove around the the front for the clear view.

This dog is getting on my nerves. Lease neighbors dog, he likes hanging out at the hog pipe. He just seems to be smelling around.

As a dog lover I have mixed feelings on what I would like to do to this nuisance dog.

Haha, nice probably wouldn't eat very well. Or at least I wouldn't want to know anyway.

Was the dog looking for food? Tagged or collared?

Hah, you already trapped him. If the dog's owner doesn't want to keep it restrained you're halfway to taking it to the shelter.



If it looks good, eat it.

Rocks are cool, also kittens.

Pretty sure I would be having a very firm and informative discussion with the lease neighbor

One day I saw him from my blind, I looked up and saw what I believed to be a hog. I put gun up and when he raised his head I knew it was a dog.

I see this dog run across the pipeline where the electric poles go and he heads towards the only house within 2 miles of our lease. Have seen this dog 4 times since the friday before christmas.

He always hangs where the hogs have been and all he does is seem to smell around.

The hog pipe has hog wild and corn in it. The trap was baited with pineapples peelings and soured corn. We always see him at these two places. he does not seemed malnuorished or anything so I believe he is just curious.

There is a hope no kill rescue center 5 miles from where we hunt. He might end up there if I catch him again.

To top it off, had a hog on a snare that got off. May have been a small one, but snare was knocked off fenceline and was pulled tight and extended the full 3 ft outward.

Running hogs all weekend this weekend, will see if this dog is around again. Hopefully getting trapped scared the piss out of him and he stays away.

I need to drive down there and confirm its his dog. Nice guy, our places are the only places in the area. We(me, the hunters on lease with me and the neighbor)have all agreed to never shoot any buck unless its 10 points or more or a cull buck.

To my knowledge he has abided by this rules and as we have.

If it is his I'm sure he will take the steps to keep him away.

Not sure what I'm going to do if it isnt his.

Might be feral as far as I know, BUT while he was angry and scared and nipping at us through trap when poked with a stick, he didn't seem real aggressive or feral either.

He also looks like he could pass as a lab or lab-mix. If you are concerned about kill shelters you might could search for lab rescues that have openings.

A guy down the road from me caught one that looked exactly like that. Then a week later it showed up at my house. I drove all the county roads around me and couldn't find the owner, posted ads on facebook and craigslist to see if anyone lost their dog so I took it to the pound. Then 3 days after I took that dog to the pound another one showed up that looked exactly like the one before.
here is a pic of the one that was caught.

Definitely looks lab mixed for sure. Ya I'll only hit a no kill shelter. Dogs deserve a chance even if their owners are dumbasses. I have 2 labs so momma ain't letting a 3rd dog in the house unless I sleep outside and that ain't happening lol!!

Woo Roo, yours looks slightly smaller but twins otherwise!!!

Ya JMC82 I have seriously thought about it. If it was a cat he would be dead already. Really like dogs though, especially labs.

I'll talk to lease neighbor 1st then make a decision.

I might agree if it was the owners that you were talking about. Most of the time it is a people problem and not a dog problem.

If it were me, I'd make a call or go visit the neighbor. If its his, ask him to go remove it from your trap. That should be very point blank, and in my opinion not rude.

have you tried shooting to scare him, when he was int the trap i would have released him and shot and yelled a few times. we had three dogs running around our property, im sure they were just strays, didnt really want to shoot them so i tried the scaring method. scared them so bad two of them ran off peeing on themselves havent seen them again its been about two months.



Keep em huntin and they wont have time to get in trouble!! And remember RESPECT goes a long way!!

As someone that is on a lease and next door to a large 4000 + acre lease. As the neighbor I would really appreciate you coming and telling me that my dog is in your trap please come get it. Keep a honest role with each other and they will be just as honest I would bet. Also remember they are there 24/7 and know when you are there and not. Not that I would do anything to the lease my self but some people may not be so nice if you up and shoot their dog.

A hard decision to make. Have a dog problem here and dread trapping and SSS.
