I give up

I've made up my mind no more gun season, archery only. The slobs I've run into this year on private land trespassing and wild antics have turned me against the regular deer season. After hunting 45 years on the same 3 farms, including mine the 4th, hunter ethics have really gone down hill big time. I'll beat the rush next year and take off the month of October and relax. While I'm at it I'll post my property for the first time in 27 years. I guess I had more faith in PA hunters than what I saw this year.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: I give up

That's why I like the big woods of 2G. No property lines to abide by and I'd rather see fewer deer and virtually no hunters. I saw one other hunter and that wasn't until thur morning but I had already filled my buck tag.

Sorry to hear bout your misfortune.

Re: I give up

I know of a couple of farmers near me that are considering posting their land too. Such a shame that people cannot be respectful of others property and livelihood.

Re: I give up

Sorry to hear that, as a few ruin it for others. A local farm is now posted and leased for sole hunting rights all year to 6 guys. They monitor anyone on the property, keep it clean of garbage, plant food plots (where the farmer doesnt) and it is extra cash for the land owner. They also give the landowner venison as well. Just an option. Posting keeps the legal hunters out , but does deter others

Vegetarian: old Indian word for lousy hunter
