    No problem with written permission and I am totally behind situations as described by Toddy. Casting hounds on private property can be dealt with through MNR and yes they will charge.
    Minimum acerage not a good idea
    Don’t use a shotgun....,,use a rifle and go after the bad apple
    PS....,. Gilroy, all hound ‘hunters’ do not speak like that....that was an unacceptable comment on your part.

    Hound hunting is a tough way to hunt, especially as it pertains to bear and coyote.

    If you think you can grab up any old dogs from the pound and turn them loose to track some animals, you have no idea what’s truly involved in that type of hunting. The hounds men will put many weeks of training into these dogs before they’re truly proficient at finding and baying animals. The hounds men will usually put many miles on their own feet during that process.

    If it’s not your cup of tea, I can understand that. But I don’t understand how some can call that kind of hunt unethical, but then thinks that hunting deer over a farm field or bear over a bait pile is somehow “more ethical.” I encourage some here to go on some training runs with houndsmen, and see for themselves that this truly is a fair-chase hunt.

    And the animals are no more stressed out than when they encounter other predators in the wilderness. There is a reason black bears are able to climb trees; it’s a defense mechanism against other predators (including other, bigger black bears).
