Here is the deal, trappers have the right to trap....we have the right to run our hounds. I have no problem with trappers, i even trap myself once in awhile. Whenever I run into a trapper, i stop to talk to them, I'm always nice and they usually always tell me what areas they are trapping. I have had my dogs caught in traps before, IT HAPPENS!! I have had my dogs killed by wolves before...IT HAPPENS! I have had my dogs killed by bear before.....IT HAPPENS. I have had my dogs hit on the highway before IT HAPPENS!

So you want to ban trapping, why not ban highways or other people driving on mountain roads or mean bear, lol

The bottom line is People need to mind their own (beep) business and leave everybody else alone. We don't own the woods and we sure as hell don't have any more right to critters then the trappers do. If a trapper is trapping in an area where i hunt....great, i have no problem with that. If they don't harass me i don't harass them.. VERY SIMPLE I don't understand why some of you hound hunters think you own the woods.

Whether you agree with trapping or not i thinks it in a houndsman's best interest to stay in the trappers good graces. There are a heck of a lot of more people who agree with trapping then agree with hound hunting, just saying. The second you try and pull there right to public lands your gonna make an enemy for life and the very next time running bears is under the gun the trappers are gonna say what the hell do I care about hounds. And there gonna stay home when it comes time to vote. In stead of saying "you know that Tex Adams is a good dude, I don't get the hound thing but I know he likes it and I don't wanna see his dogs taken from him". Or at least I think that's how a democracy works.

Anyhow, it's not hard at all to trap break dogs. 100 percent of the spots I hunted from December 1 to February 28 we're absolutely riddled with other peoples snares, foot holds, and conibears. I never once had a problem. I took my dogs every time I would check my own traps and never had a problem.

I guess worst case you can get the city dog walkers on your side when it comes time to vote. They know nothing about hounds or trapping and they out number both groups, and also get to vote. Hahaha gotta love that democracy

for those who believe that you can "train" a hunting dog to avoid traps and snares....ARE YOU ON CRACK? You're either ignorant, stupid or both. Are you trappers really that stupid?

Trappers are the laziest "slobs" in the sporting game business. These no good bums indiscriminately set out traps/snares that will maim and kill ANYTHING that steps into it...hunting dogs included.

Cal Taylor, I thought you were smarter than that. Anyway, any of you no good POS's that catch and harm/kill my hunting dog...I'll be waiting for you to be running your trapline and oh my what "catch" are you going to find! I don't care if you're a weekend trapper, govt. trapper or whatever, don't be catching my dog. hmm, how will a conibear or snare fit on you?!?!?

Hunting dogs shouldn't be on public lands? Screw you, Big Sky. How about trappers shouldn't be on public lands. There is nothing responsible about setting a trap. Catch my dog, Big Sky and I'll show you who is the king of public lands

Hunters & Trappers need to be all on the same team, and manage our conflicts internally. In Western NC we have Aug.15- the end of March to run dogs on public land, during that time period all other hunting/trapping seasons take place a well. There are a couple weeks of deer rifle season where we (houndsmen) are permitted to train dogs, but most choose not to in order to minimize unnecessary conflicts with deer hunters. Sometimes we(hunters & trappers) need to work things out amongst ourselves so we all can continue to enjoy our way of life.

Hahaha, you can't seam to figure out how to trap break your dogs and I'm the ignorant / stupid one.

By the way, Ignorant and stupid kind of mean the same thing. That's like saying "man, my tire went flat and it also ran out of air." I think I'm starting to see why you can't figure out how to train you dogs. Im not sure if thinking is one of your strong points. Lol
