when citified hunters come up here to play hunters and you don't keep them off your property they shoot any and every thing includedimg the out buildings,dogs,houses and people i post every year and patrol when i can to preserve the inviorment from such people i have trees out in the nowhere that have bullets in them beer cans full of holes and plastic bags
thrown where the only way you can get there is to hoof it so if you keep them off you save your out buildings

Nevada requires written permission to hunt private property, carried on you while you hunt. They ask, I grant, never had a problem. I am appreciative of the removal of some of the alfalfa gobbling mulies, I can't eat them all. This year I left a bunch of fill-in-the blank permission notes at the mailbox, with a request to leave gates open or closed as found and leave no trash. Most people don't have to worry about it anyway, because most of the state is BLM or other Federal property.

Sorry to hear that...    Posted 10-04-2003 at 12:46:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
But...Like Les says, that is just not common around here...

I have asked 4 farmers in the last week for the privilege (and been granted) to hunt their fields for the upcoming goose season here...I always make it a point to let them know my home number so they can call if they have any complaints about me or my 'parties' behaviour...I also ask where they would like me to park...If there are any dates they don't want me there, etc...I also do some 'policing' of the properties if the owner wants me too...

We always leave the place cleaner than when we arrive too...

I don't know who you are but you must have some mighty uncivilized and uneducated morons hunting your area. Not to say that that kind of thing has never happened here but it is certainly far from common. Hunters are pretty good at policing themselves around here.
My family owns around 500 acres of land in 4 towns and we've never posted any of it. Never felt the need to. Once in a while you run into a jerk but it's been years. We know how to handle things.

in nys you have to be able tio stand in front of a poster and be able to see the next one to your right and also left also if a poster is missing anyone can enter at that point like if you wanted to( idon't think people would do it) you could tear the poster down and enter the spot and we are within 100 miles of two large cities and people with guns calling themselves hunters
just stop thier cars and walk into the woods not knowing what is on the back of the trees and start shooting thats why i feel the way i do

I agree. I love to shoot, I do hunt on my own property, and I believe strongly in the 2d Amendment.

BUT I don't allow hunters on my place--there are a few that I know and trust that I'd allow if they wanted. But most (city or country-bred, quite honestly) here are exactly as Salmoneye describes...they'll shoot at anything whether they've identified a real target or not; they don't think about where the bullet will go if they miss; they carry in trash and leave it all over; they break or cut fences and other personal stuff that is in their way.

Had one guy ask me if he could hunt my property and I told him no, and explained I was concerned about my livestock as well as the fact that I enjoy walking my property at all hours and prefer not to get shot at.

Anyway, couple of weeks later I'm at the barn and hear a close-in "bang" so I grab my 12 guage and go looking. There's the same clown I told "no" 2 weeks earlier standing over a deer in the middle of my (clearly posted) back field. He saw me coming and runs, jumps over the fence, turns around and then has the nerve to tell me he hadn't been on my property.
