Some hunters view deer hunting with hounds as a cherished and long standing hunting tradition. At the same time, other hunters look upon that way of hunting deer as an unethical and almost barbaric practice. Austin Tomlin is a deer hunter from Virginia who has hunted deer with hounds since he was a boy and recently even wrote a book on the subject. Well, Austin was kind enough to join me on the podcast today to talk about this controversial subject in some more detail and to help clear up some confusion about the practice. As you’ll learn here shortly, there’s a whole lot more to hunting deer with hounds than most people might first think.
