We saw less than 25% of the deer we normally see, at what used to be my best spot. People that bought the place next door now have two dogs that run loose. They got a heeler and some kind of mixed breed in early Summer. I get pics of them every single day, on both cams in the little woods that borders them. It's a natural funnel/bottle neck. My top 3 bucks have only been on camera in that woods this year, and since mid September, not a single daylight pic of any of them. For that matter, I've only had one daylight pic of any deer in the last 3 weeks. They come in an hour or so after dark, and leave well before daylight. Damn dogs. What is the best way to approach them about their dogs? They deer hunt on their 65 acres, so I can't imagine they've not experienced reduced sightings as well. I'm a dog lover, so no way I'm going to hurt their dogs. But I'm also not going to put up with them messing up my deer hunting again next year.
