Re: posting baited property
Brings to mind a good story from my area. Several years ago a local guy bought 90 acres near me. He included a "hunting rights" clause for the old gentleman that sold him the land, out of kindness, and due to the fact that he does not hunt, but has nothing agaisnt it. Fast forward several years, the old gentleman passes away. The first day of deer season the landowner hears a drive going on. Upon inspection, he finds a son of the previous owner, and about a dozen of his friends, hunting on the property. After informing him to leave, a ruckus breaks out that may turn ugly. The new owner, being a pretty intelligent guy, backs off. The next day he has 20 ton of shelled corn delivered. Him and his son spend the early morning spreading the corn around the entire property. When the wiseguy son shows up again, he tells him the property has been baited (True), and also tells him the proper authorities have been notified
( Not True ), and if he sets foot on the place he will be arrested for hunting over bait. After a blistering run of curses, Mr. Wiseguy departs and has never been back. True story, one I like because he used all the advantages he had to get rid of the guy, without violence.
