wow!

I've met some jerks but never anything close to that.  Hope I never do.

Hope none of us here ever has a run-in with someone like that.

They're everywhere... too bad it only makes us responsible hunters look bad.

That sucks!

That dude will get his!  Karma always has a way of making things right in the long run. 

What a piece of......work!  I'm not sure what I would have done but I would hope that I could maintain my cool like it sounds like you guys did.  You have a ton of patience!

Too bad your buddy didn't end up bagging a trophy goat right in front of that knucklehead!  That would have been the cat's meow!!!

I don't understand people

I don't understand people like that.  Why can't they just be polite and back out.  Really, even though it is public land, it should be first come first serve.

I can see how you might intrude upon someone elses spot, but as soon as you realize, then just back out.  Life is too short to get your blood pressure up over something like this.

Ethics

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

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.
