we have 20 acres on top of the mpontian all woods except for about 1 1/2 acres of real thick mountain laurel and wet boggy land in a hollow about center. my springer spanial loves to go in there and get soaked and muddy bird hunting. she never catches any thing mainly because she is a little overweight like her daddy yesterday i neard a shot real close and tjen another i walked into the woods and my dog hade a beeline to the house i went further into the woods and found a hunter. i asked what he was doing there he said the owner gave him permision and he just shot at a dog that was chasing deer.i know that she doesn't chase deer because she lays on the deck when the deer are in the fromt yard. well i told the man?,hunter? whatever to get the h--- of my property and i went back to the houseand called the state police then i went looking for his car i found a car parked on the road i sat till the trooper came and sure enough he came out at the same time as the trooper showed up.i had him arrested for tresspassing,discharging a firearm within 500 ft of a dwelling and cruelty to animals i suppose the cruelty one won,t stick but he will still have to show up in court.i don't mind the town court is only 7 miles away the man lives in nyc. my wife was realt surprised i held my cool the way i did because of the dog but he had a rifle and all i had was a stick

One snowy afternoon, about 4 or so, 3 deer hunters made their way down this steep bank at the edge of a woods and near the bottom the first fellar says, "my goodness, look at these deer tracks."

The second hunter says, "....heck, I have been a hunter all my life and they look like bear tracks to me."

You know, before the 3rd hunter could answer, he got run over by the train. :^)

Last year some cluck tried to tell me that he had permission from the owner to hunt on my property. I asked him to name the owner and he told me "Sam Keener," Interestin' since Mr. Keener died in 1967 probly a few years before the hunter was born.

Good job. We had two guys hunting our place this year (Dad gave them permission for some reason). The last day of the season, it was really foggy in the morning and at 5:30 they fired off 6 shots right beside our house (within 50 feet). Woke up our 11 month old daughter and there's no way they could see anything to shoot at, they were just standing beside their truck shooting into the fog. Screwed themselves out of 800 acres of prime hunting ground for the rest of their lives.

Hey folks I'm sure this is a dumb question but what is a sound shot?

Dale    Posted 11-23-2003 at 08:38:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
When you can't see anything so youjust shoot at the sounds.

WHOA!!! Now you've got me scared! I just rented a small piece of farmland with woods on one side and a river on the other. The landlady says she has had a lot of trouble with hunters going on her land without permission. Wonder if I should paint my John Deeres red so they won't be shooting at the wrong "deer" :}

if you paint your deere red it will increase in value people would take it for a GOOD tractor

jd is the only tractor that comes equipt with a com-a-long to get it moving.they paint them green so nobody notides them broke down in the field. the reason there are so many restored jd is that parts are available in every junkyard and new parts you get at eckerts drug store. \BTW i have a jd in my stable to pull around my show tractors.

Good for you! I am glad you took action and maybe he will spread the word to others not to come on your property. People think just because it's a lot of land they can come on it and do whatever they want to, and nobody will even know. You did the right thing. I don't know if I could have held my temper.

deer opening day sounds like a shooting range around me. i just wonder how many are getting off "sound shots"? so far i have not had any trouble with "hunters" on my place and for their sake i hope i do not in the future.

What makes me furious is finding mushroom hunters getting to my morels before I have a chance to harvest them myself; and it's often that dope-smoking, crack-brewing (whatever they do to make it) neighbor of mine.

Being from NYC your lucky he didn't take a "sound shot" at you. You no them city hunters. "I didn't see anything but I got off a couple of sound shots".

I know what ya mean, them sound shots ran me out of the woods one year.

I worked in SW NY state for a couple of years and that actually happened. It was the first second day of hunting season up there and the restaurant was packed at 5am with hunters. Alot of conversation noise as they all swapped hunting stories from the day before. Just when the restaurant seemed to be the busiest and noisiest one of the hunters said in a voice just loud enough to carry "No, I didn't get anything but I got off a couple of sound shots" ......... the sudden subsequent dead silence was deafening. You could have heard a pin drop at that instant as everyone just stared at the guy. Someone asked him where he was hunting today so they could be sure not to be anywhere near him.

All day I just kept thinking how scary that was. I was working not hunting but was in the woods none the less and was a bit jittery all day. Should have just stayed home that week I think.

You might should carry a hand gun with you when you go for walks out in your woods.
You know for wild hogs or snakes (even the two legged kind) for protection.

years ago i got an uzi out west,
(well, 9mm semi-auto with a spare banana clip), a decidedly un-sporting weapon, and the form had a strange question on it, something about my intended use or some such. in the little space i carefully wrote "sweeping my sidewalk". got my gun, never got any feedback, i doubt anybody ever looked at it. either that or they understood my answer perfectly :)
