I've seen a ton of deer get chased and never once saw one get caught. I'm not saying it never happens, but they have nearly zero effect on them. A deer would most likely have to be in bad health.
I'm sure there are some pictures and some witnesses to deer being killed. I'm saying its rather rare and most times a healthy deer will not be killed. We have something like a million deer in Kentucky and I'd bet the percentage killed by dogs will hardly make a blip on the statistical scale.Dogs can run for longer distance than deer, this is fact. I shot dogs in Iowa that were running deer with their muzzles drenched in fresh blood.
You don't think that dogs running deer to the point that the deer can't run anymore has an effect on a deer?
Funny thing the CO that didn't seem to care about the resource that his job was to protect told me about the same thing, dogs don't catch deer.

I told the CO, look at the top of the second picture, the dog has clearly caught the deer and most likely has the deer in it's mouth. These dogs were shot because they ripped into a little kid. Tell me that they wouldn't rip into a deer?

My dogs did not get to go outside, because the bird had just flown in and landed. It has since flown to the other pond, because I permitted it ten minutes to hunt (that's plenty...).
