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.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
