Working to Resolve Hound and Deer Hunting Conflicts With Chris Powell

August 16, 2023 By: NDA Staff

We are often contacted by deer hunters who own and manage land in states that allow hunting deer with the use of hounds about conflicts when hounds enter their private property. NDA does not have a policy opposing hunting deer with the use of hounds but instead relies on state wildlife management agencies to handle decisions related to method of pursuit or take.

NDA strongly supports the rights of private landowners and fully understands the frustration of stationary deer hunters who have had their hunts interrupted by dogs. In this episode, Nick and The Doctor are joined by Chris Powell of the HoundsmanXP Podcast to discuss this issue.

One of Chris’s focus areas is working to reduce hound and deer hunting conflicts and he shares what he hopes to accomplish. He believes both sides of the issue can work together to improve everyone’s enjoyment of their chosen hunting passions without infringing on each others’ rights.
