You should be in Church - not out hunting.

A land owner can hunt on his own land anytime.

Hunting deer with dogs is legal in most of Virginia. The Sunday law is partly to make it so that non-hunters can actually use public lands without risk one day of the weekend.

Personally its the one day on my place I don't feel like I'm taking my life in my hands being out on my farm. A deer was shot 75 yards from my shop as it crossed the road. That's right, it was shot on the road and had you been an on coming car you would have been @ risk. This is normal and customary and scary.

No matter the reason, it still seems foolish.

1. If you cant see the backdrop behind your shot, don't take it.

2. If you are shooting something without 100% ID, don't take it

3. Don't shoot from or within 100 feet of an improved road.

4. In suburban/urban environments, only allow short range weapons.

5. Churches hold services on Wednesday and Saturday nights nowadays to accommodate the working family.

6. Violate any of the above (minus 5. of course), and you get a fine and your gun confiscated at minimum since you cant follow directions.

That's Idaho; I understand we have a lot more public land and lot less people, but the principles should still be the same.

no arguments from me.

reality here is deer hunters drinking beer in their trucks and following the transponder tagged dogs with electronics in their pickup trucks and most all shots are taken from the roadway by guys that often shouldn't even be behind the wheel.

Ask the 2 ass hat red necks that tried to cross my property in a pos Chevy truck how I feel about their hunting practices.
Sucks to be them....
Would have loved to be a fly on the wall as they explained to the OCSO how a guy took their truck and weapons.

Seems like there is a lot of unethical and irresponsible hunters out there: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...unter/3950523/

For sure. Morons are drawn to guns and shooting. I really care less about enforcement honestly; community enforcement through word of mouth and public shaming is more effective. You act a fool in my area, and I'll let everyone know so they keep you away from theirs. If that doesn't fix it, let the law get involved. We're going broke just trying to enforce what we got.

interesting Doug. Shooting from a vehicle, or within or across a right of way/road is absolutley illegal in VA.

Take a leaf outta Rick's book - go armed with a shotgun - makes one think twice (always)

Well aware what the law is Craig. These guys are my neighbors and one has to pick ones battles carefully.

In North Carolins only bow hunting and falcondry are allowed on Sundays. When I asked the cop who lives next to me why, he said "You ought to be in Church on Sunday, not running the woods." When I asked him why you could bow hunt on Sunday he replied "that's so's the preacher man don't hear you."

With a deer drive using dogs the shots are usually taken from the road as the hunters line up waiting for the deer to run from the woods. They use shotguns with buckshot and as the deer is running it may need more than one shot to kill it resulting in a lot of spoiled meat and possibly injured deer as they cover a lot of ground and have no time to track a wounded deer.
The claim to be selective when shooting is dubious as when the deer break from cover they are running very quickly making it hard to assess the deer.
We "still" hunt from stands using bow, black powder and finally rifle.
After two bucks for the freezer I passed on several bucks and does.
We grow food plots for dove, deer and turkey and try to manage the wildlife.

I don't miss a pack of hunting dogs running through my yard at 5 a.m.

But I do miss Virginia!

There are not enough DFW officers out there to stem the tide of morons with guns. I take my Beagle out on hikes in WVa all of the time. State parks there are posted zones but some are so remote, and blend into National Parks that I am always aware. If it is a season of any type, we are wearing blaze, that includes my dog. A collar is not enough for a lot of 'shoot first, aim later' "hunters" out there.

This, obviously, is not my Beagle but she wears something similar. They are available in all sorts of sizes. Some even by breed.

I am curious about this... Can you explain further? Did you keep the weapons or turn them over to the police?

The hunters in Colorado are pretty good and we have a bunch of rules that the majority of people abide by.

Sounds like VA is the Wild West redneck haven

Random side note, Vermont has been setting up decoy deer on the side of the road and watching them from a blind. They've caught plenty of people both driving off the road to hit the deer, as well as shooting the deer from their vehicle...

...hilarious

In Mississippi, you can shoot from a vehicle as long as it is not in motion (parked).
