I took a walk a this afternoon, in preparation for mondays start of deer season. I walked a 15 acre section down in the bottom by a creek, and found 3 portable tree stands, and 3 permanent, nail and board tree stands, and one 1000 gal fuel tank stood on end!
It always amazes me that folks can cart in fuel tanks, and lumber and ladders, but can never find the time or ambition to stop and ask the landowner for permission to hunt posted property.
OH WELL, it sucks to be them, sure hope they like surprises!!

Just cause I'm the curious type, and I like surprises.....what kind of surprise have you rigged up for them fellas?

None of them will be able to find their tree stands, just lil ole me, standin there in the dark to greet them.
It'll be fun, we'll talk a while, mention mutual friends ( state police, game wardens) then they'll wonder just how they managed to get lost and end up over here on this property? I being the gracious host, will politely point the way back to their vehicle, and listen for my dogs to bark in case they decide to visit my house.
It's just great makin new friends

Congratulations on all the freebies Ron! One or two should come in handy someday - like it says on page one of the California Hunting Regulations "If the land you intend to hunt is not owned by you personally, it belongs to somebody else!" I wonder why they mentioned that? :)

People have hunted our land for longer than I have been around. Probably most of them don't even know they are on it.

Les, we have never refused to let anyone hunt that has asked, however when Donna and I got thrown off of our own land, at gun point, the rules changed.
When it is impossible for us to hunt our own property, because of rude, crude hunters, I draw the line. We have had my niece and nephew, chased out of the middle of our farm, by a group that we asked not to hunt that one certain area, because of the younger kids were hunting there.
No Les, it was always that way around here, no posted signs anywhere in the valley, and we respected each other's area when they were hunting there.
The rules have changed,and I doubt they will ever be the same again. Sometimes ya just gotta be the biggest a-hole in the valley before they take you serious.

I'm not unsympathetic to you, Ron. I'm sure we'd be doing the same if it happened on our land.
