I assume there's a public road that gives access to your 43 acres? What would happen if she started the deer near the road, and the deer crossed the road?

Before you dismiss this, I know someone who has acrage in a remote area with one access road, rarely traveled. They thought their dog was safe. The breeder and several others had warned the owner that this was dangerous, especially given the breed's (Basenji) tendency for poor recall.

Recall didn't matter that day. He was killed by the single car to come down the road that afternoon and they never even saw it happen.

And unfortunately, the nasty "amusement" of deliberately hitting loose animals tends to be more common in rural areas.

you to the game warden?

That should have been phrased "chasing or killing", since in many areas chasing is enough to get you cited.
Our 6 year-old German Shepherd, Ali, keeps running down and killing deer. She's a great dog and always obeys our ... a deer. Do any of you have any training tips on how we can break her of this terrible habit?

Put up a fence. No, you don't have to fence your entire 43 acres. Put up a nice yard that encloses one end of your house, where there's a door into the house. Then install a dog door.
If you want to take her to the woods, put a LEASH on her. That's how I keep my dogs. They are FENCED and have house access through a dog door. If I take them out of the fence, they are LEASHED.
I live in the country too. There's nothing that ticks me off more than people who think they have a "right" to allow their dogs to run loose, just because there's no leash law per se. It means I can't ride my bicycle down our road; I can't go for a walk; I must fence in MY property to keep dogs like YOURS off it.
You are required to maintain control of and supervision over your dog AT ALL TIMES. With 43 acres, there's no way you'd know whether or not your dog has ever crossed your property line.

So much for your "TRAININ".
