Oh hell if he's that old just whip his assright, no real regs for stands/cams; most hunters will give space to the current stand and move on; but there are definitely the types that if they've hunted it for so many years, they think its their land.
I'm starting to think he just wants me out of his area; I did catch a pic of him earlier this year on a different camera, he's an older guy, so he may have been hunting here for "25 years!" how dare someone move in onto this property
Well, for the 1st time in my life I am not wearing a badge or under the oath,having to check my reactions every second....free.All the posts earlier in the week about hank being a nice helpful guy and hank says” hold my beer”!!! I laughed out loud when I read this!
I know exactly how you feel Hank!Well, for the 1st time in my life I am not wearing a badge or under the oath,having to check my reactions every second....free.
In all fairness I would not be parked any were near other vehicles these days. I just go elsewhere. I also don't stand hunt.
And the last two aholes who drove all over the place during my hunt got away with it after being reported.
This * 1000. Never fight a fighting man who's too old to fight. He might just pull a .44. As far as the story about the mass shooting involving the Hmong guy, best not to mess with guys that took on the NVA with crossbows.Just remember those guys that fought in Vietnam are way more bad ass than most guys today. Don’t ever pick a fight with a old guy. He little to loose and you may just be another notch in his Kbar.
Pretty pretty please, tell me they were Degens from Upcountry.I'd move on. Not worth the trouble.
I hunted hard the same spot for archery and the first few days of rifle elk this year without seeing anyone in the woods. Two greasy skids showed up the first Saturday of rifle season after I'd been there early, set up and ready to go. After a few words with them I quickly realized they were both a-holes and didn't care if I was already there. I packed up my stuff and went to a different spot. Again, not worth the trouble.
WMA's and WPA's have different rules and yes you are right in which you can not leave them overnight; state forests you can leave portables, hell you can still build permanents in alot of state forests; our city rules say to follow state and county rules. The only county rule is no building of permanent stands. As for all stands left on public land, anyone can use them, but you cannot steal themNot that I know of, but it Would be best to contact local Game Warden. In my area the game warden will actually come take down your stand and leave you a note to contact them if they get reports of stands on public.
multiple deer tags, so he'll probably be back, best I can hope for now is he was solely using my stand and when he gets out there some morning between now and the end of the rut, he'll be missing something..Man that is rough - pretty much a dick move but probably best bet is to just move on. You could definitely try to get to your spot early and hunt it as well.
Bloodied Nock - does that mean he is done for the season or is it likely he has multiple tags?
Bad news, I dont have any social media platform besides hunt talk and in depth outdoors, and I am under the age of 40...
Just take the center piece out, wait until it's flat and put it back in. He'd really be wondering then and there's be no destruction of property. Do it to 2 of them just to make things difficult. Then leave the bloody nock on the tire.I’m not advocating this by any means, but that dude could get his valve stems yanked out real quick if he kept acting that way.
