Sorry to scare you, but one of our 3 dogs kills deer. Seriously, he's already got 3 of 'em. Darn dog. Needless to say, we've now invested in an incredible dog run at our new "Great" cabin, and never walk him in the woods without having him on a leash. He's brutal. He's a psyco rescue with trust issues. Totally sweet with us, but a real hunter (seems a bit of a Rhodesian Ridgeback breed, which are used to hunt lions in Africa. I can see why. I love her to death, but don't think we'd risk it with her in your paradise!
(PS. Yes, @Mrs.Groovy - we have a muzzle when visitors come calling, so you can tell Mr. G he'll be fine. Just fine.)
