Dog shoots master

It's happened again: A hunting dog has shot its master.
This time, a man in Florida was hit in the thigh by a round from his Remington .308 on Saturday, .
The culprit was a bulldog named Eli. Authorities told that Billy E. Brown, 78, was driving to go deer hunting with a friend on a bumpy road in Pasco County near Tampa when Eli "got excited in the truck" and bumped the rifle. The gun discharged, the bullet hit Brown in the right thigh, and he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, said Officer George Wells, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Brown's condition was not released.
Wells said Brown and the friend were about one-and-a-half miles into the woods when the accident -- if you're buying that the dog didn't mean to do that -- occurred.
The name of Brown's friend was not released. The two have been hunting together for more than 25 years,
This incident follows one Dec. 1 in which a hunter in Utah was hit in the buttocks by birdshot after his dog stepped on a shotgun laid across the bow of a boat. The Salt Lake City Tribune said the wounded hunter had 27 pellets removed from ... well, you know.

The lesson was learned the hard way.........

Violate the laws of gun safety, and there WILL be a penalty to pay.

Let me guess

Dick Chaney trained the dog

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

Dogs and deer?

I had that problem, with dogs chasing our deer and game warden said that deer weren't livestock we couldn't shoot them for going after our deer. Is this a state by state law?

Yep, state by state

There are some odd hunting laws on the books around this country.

I'm currently in Texas. But our game warden is .........."moody" to say the least.

Yeah, dogs here aint the same as dogs in say, Alabama or Kentucky.
Hell, they hunt everything with dogs. We kinda stick to coons and birds.
Game wardens. Yeah, we had a good one. He retired and damned if we didn't get a guy who grew up around here. He was one of the worst poachers around as a kid, now he knows where to look.
Irony strikes again.

Dogs chasing deer an annual problem
(Released February 25, 2011)

Reports of dogs pursuing deer this time of year is an annual problem, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

?It?s cold out, and deer are expending every bit of energy to stay alive, while the dog is likely frisky, full of food, and ready to run,? said Col. Jim Konrad, Minnesota DNR enforcement director.

The penalty for dogs caught chasing deer can be death. And the owner of a dog that kills or pursues a big game animal is guilty of a petty misdemeanor and is subject to a civil penalty of up to $500 for each violation. State law says any conservation officer or peace officer has the option of killing a dog that is caught wounding, killing or pursuing a big game animal.

Also, between Jan. 1 and July 14, a person other than a peace officer or conservation officer may kill the dog. The officer or person is not liable for damages for killing the dog.

The last thing a conservation officer wants to do is talk to people about controlling their dog, Konrad said.

?If people make a little extra effort, we won?t have these problems,? Konrad said. ?The DNR doesn?t perceive this as a dog problem. We perceive it as a people problem.?
