A mile up the road from us, a local life-long farmer was shot in the dark by 2 poachers on his land--father and son. Farmer lost his arm. The result was they weren't allowed to get hunting licenses for 2 years! They still laugh about that, if you can believe it, since they never got licenses anyway. And oddly enough for Maryland, there's apparently a State law that protects hunters from personal liability for accidents that kept the farmer from bringing civil suit so he's left out in the cold.

First year I moved to the farm I caught a tresspasser hunting on my posted property red handed. I was armed and chambered and explained to him that I hunted my property and I was concerned he might be meet with an accident since I had my land posted and I almost mistook him for some legal game. He swallowed hard when I unchambered my gun...hasn't been back since (knock wood).

y'all take care,
