I have a question to everyone who responded to the hunting deer with dogs thread. If it is inhumane and non sporting to hunt deer with dogs, what about bird dogs? Letting dogs point birds for us? What kind of sport is that? What, let a dog retrieve my duck or tree a coon? Where to we draw the line? Before you answer think wisely and don't be a hypocrite. If these questions start your blood boiling, don't answer until you have calmed down. I would like rational replies.
