I teach hunters ed. and we really try to let the kids know that there are hunters like that around but we are the real hunters. It's sad that some hunters have to be that way but as long as we act right that's all that matters. We just need to keep a level head on our shoulders and remember the HUNTERS ETHICS.
Makes you wonder if some formalized rules should be established for hunters on public land. In the old days, people had respect for one another, but today respect is less common. We are already over regulated, but things like these could escalate and maybe just some published guidelines provided to hunters regarding first come rights, distance from other hunters, etc. might help alleviate potential disputes. It is a shame that hunters don't have respect for one another - we have enough problems without being the problem ourselves.
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
You can see a your quarry's breath when it is cold outside...
