Here in VA "hunting" seems to consist of parking your big stoopid truck on side of the road and sitting in it while your dogs walk up and down the middle of the road. The dogs walk right out in front of you and seem to give you a dirty look that you're in their way.
Are they looking for road kill deer? Why the middle of the road? Shouldn't they be off in the woods? What is the purpose of the "hunters" sitting in the trucks? Are they waiting for a deer to come up and ask for a beer?
I have no idea what they're doing and why they have dogs.
No flame from this end. Back when/where I used to hunt (PA) - WE - did the running and dogs were pets. No dogs, no tree stands, no hunt lands that were 'cessed out months in advance. Simply get your a$$ in the woods with your 30-30 and find your prey. Much more exciting and certainly less technical. Today, hunting is more like an arcade game.
