Frequently Asked Questions


I have an adjacent landowner who hunts with dogs to pursue furbearers, feral hogs, and bobcats. Can I legally shoot the hunter's dog(s) if they come onto my property?

No! A person does not have the right to kill a dog that is pursuing wildlife; however, a landowner may attempt to prosecute the owner of the dog(s) for hunting a wildlife resource without landowner consent. The local game warden, when called upon, will assist the landowner with investigating this type of illegal activity.
