Re: AR Pro's / Con's
I am in agreement with 8 pt spike. I don't think it is AR, but the attitude of society in general. People are just as likely to flip you the middle finger anymore than they are to lend you a hand.
I have hunted our family property all my life. We had a gentlemans agreement with the neighboring landowners and would actually post on each others land. The first buck I ever saw in the woods, I was 11, and was shot by the neighbors grandson from the exact spot I hunt today (on our property). That was 32 yrs ago, probably the biggest 6 point I have ever seen.
Today, another grandson has no problem trespassing on our property, riding his quad against the property line (while we are hunting), and generally acting the fool. But don't dare step an inch onto his property or all heck breaks loose. Over the years, I've hunted with his Mom, Dad and sister with no issues. I never posted our property until after he did and kicked us off quite obnoxiously. My brother and I were doing nothing different that day than the first day 20 yrs previous. A simple "hey, we prefer not to do this anymore," would have sufficed.
There is no common courtesy in society anymore - it is a "me first" attitude, which is the downfall of our society today.
Getting off my soapbox now.
