Deer Hunting with Dogs (Caswell County, NC)

The following is excerpted from Phillip Wade's "Frogsboro News" column in the 5 January 2011 edition of The Caswell Messenger:

About a month ago, I wrote about bear hunting in Pender County. After reading an article in a Virginia newspaper I realized I hadn't written anything about deer hunting this season. The deer that are killed are registered online or by cell phone. There are not many stores that register deer that have been killed anymore. Plus, due to hunting with no dogs, truck traffic is not what it was years ago. This is according to Jason Maness, the Caswell County officer. There is still a hunt club in this area, but due to hunting without dogs, membership has fallen way off. Deer season ended this past Saturday, which was Jan. 1.
