12. They are normally used to find lost dogs.

Not give hunters an edge.

My family still hunts out of blinds for deer but uses dogs for hogs. GPS collars have made finding dogs so much easier. It never a problem finding the dogs when they have a hog bayed up, as their barking tells their location. But a lost dog pre-gps was a big worry.

And even those who use dogs for deer the goal is not to have the dogs actually catch and kill the deer. They donít even want the deer running all that much, just moving. Which is why it is almost always beagles and Walker Hounds(small breeds) that can never actually catch or harm the animal. We stopped dog hunting 40 years ago as the area became more densely populated. Dog hunters are now, in my area, seen as inconsiderate hunters. And we rarely see any.

These are people who just donít like hunting and are making a mountain out of a molehill.
