Hey, Matty, wanna bet that in most states a dog caught chasing a deer (esp. in winter which can kill a deer even they are not caught) will have a high probability of being shot if someone sees them.NO they cant , in VT ONLY Vermont law enforcement officers are authorized to shoot a dog chasing a deer in deep snow. youve taken that law completely out of context. not trying to start a beef but look into it im 100% sure the circumstances have to be met before a law enforcement official can shoot a dog. ive actually asked many game wardens about this
Not a good thing for a dog to do!
I don't know of anyone who is in the woods with a gun and sees a dog chasing a deer who wouldn't at the very least be tempted to take a shot!
