Default Pets At Hunting Camp

I am a Club President and have some folks extremely against this. Bringing your pet to camp is not an issue with me! Comments please....

As long as the pet behaves itself, wouldn't bother me. With that said, nothing worse than being on a dove field or in a blind listening to someone yell at their dog all day.

Several in our camp bring their dogs and its never been an issue. Id bet good money that anyone annoyed by the thought of pets in camp will also be a pain in the rear on other issues as well. Id dump the anti-pet members and move on.

I love animals and dogs in particular. However, I don't want to be inconvenienced by the irresponsibility of other dog owners in Camp. I've had to listen to whining barking, barking dogs tied up at night, and in the woods while I'm hunting. The same dogs get untied after the owner gets back in Camp and go from camper to camper looking for handouts, marking everything that is laying around, and taking a dump who knows where. I would consider a $200 pair of hunting boots useless forever once I step in dog poo. I once slung a fist-sized rock towards a lab that was just hiking his leg to pee on my climber/pack that was leaning up against a tree. Not trying to hit him, but trying to keep him away from my equipment. One second later would have been too late. The owner did not like it, but I would rather have him mad at me than have a dog pee on my deer hunting equipment. We had another member who thought nothing of taking his dogs for a run behind his four wheeler to go 'check on his stands'.
I got out of that deal and I'm in charge of my own lease now. Dogs are not an issue now because there are no dogs in Camp.

So, you don't like folks who don't like dogs, but also don't like folks who do like and own dogs too??

Back when I ran our club I had a Rottweiler that I took to camp 2 or 3 times, he was a calm dog, rather laid back and didn't bark without good reason, another member had a Australian shepherd mix that was also a calm laid back dog, we never had any issues . I generally kept mine cabled to my camper unless I was in camp, and both myself and the other dog owner cleaned up whatever presents the dogs left.

That being said I wouldn't want a yappy constantly barking dog in camp, or one that wasn't obedient to his owner.

Why allow one person to disrespect all other members by bringing their stinking pet to camp?

stepping in dog poop makes a boot useless? its not battery acid. you need to come help us work cows a few days.

So true.

My avatar is at hunting camp with part of our thundering herd of wiener dogs. They don't bother anything, and they come in extremely handy when you have a tough blood trail. Turn the wiener dogs on it, and you'll find your deer in a hurry.

Wiener dog rabbit hunts are a hoot, too. They'll run rabbits like a beagle.

Half my Lease is Cattle Country. Moon pies all over the woods.
Whole place smells like a 9000 acre Food Plot.

Man, I wouldnt be able to keep steady knowing a wiener dog was running a rabbit my way. I would be giggling the entire time.

Don't mind dogs in camp at all. As long as they are friendly and stay in camp. If your dog is loose passing by my stand we have problems.

My 12 year old thinks he's a Plott. He'll run anything regardless of size. These days, short bursts of about, 50 yards is all he's got in him.
