I'm gonna start some crap with this one, but I've gotta ask.

The thread on baiting for squirrel hunting got me thinking about a problem I've got. There's a large dog that shows up once a week or even less, and harrasses and even kills some of the smaller animals in the area. "Dog shooting" has been a flame-filled topic here more than once, but this time, I have no problem with it. We've lost one cat, and neighbors have lost a cat and even a puppy; all apparently to this dog.

Question: how to "bait" a dog, short of using a kitten for bait? I'm not home a lot during daylight hours; only seen him twice myself. Once in the morning (he'd ran off by the time I grabbed my rifle and went outside), and once as I drove up in the driveway at night (he ran off before I got the truck stopped).

Being able to draw him where I want him to be would obviously be more efficient than just waiting and hoping for a coincidental meeting. (I keep calling it a "him"; that's just an assumption.)

bait, but not poison.

i have 'heard' that a colored dish sponge[brand new,never wet] cut into 1"x1"sq.[or BIGGER] with bacon grease dripped on it, once ingested, will break it ,from hassling your property.[big time]

I never liked it when i heard it[and probably should not have shared!]

the old 20 minute, rule of thumb,of one in lungs, holds true for dogs also!

with a h.v.air rifle,.22short. the .22 colibi sans poudre, won't cut it[i bounce them off coytes in my front yard,when there hunting the g.f.'s pet rabbits/quail]

the problem with a lung/lingering shot is, shot target could run around in YOUR FRONT YARD for 20 minutes,creating an unwanted atmosphere for wife and kids.

aw, HELL , john, just shoot it in the head with your new suppressed ruger

[you know you want to!,ha,ha,]
