Well there are two main options....you could see if you could get some animal control officers out there....or you could treat them like you would a coyote that is doing the same thing....

Dogs like that can hurt the deer BAD....they can literally run deer so long that they die from over exhaustion.

Since I am scared of dogs.. I would feel like my life was in danger and pull the trigger..

Or the right way would be like Tnrebel said you can call animal control and have alot of folks trekking through your woods not worrying about scent control.

I would treat them just like coyotes....possibly set traps or if you see them shoot them...
Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

Feral Dogs are no differant than coyotes, and I have no problem dispatching them. These are not pets, and you must remember they are taking down game. Here in Montana the law allows the taking out of dogs running game.

Like I said, feral dogs are not pets.
