Here is the deal!
I have hunted 300ac in east central Indiana for fifteen years. It took four years to get the owner to let me hunt, he didn't let anyone on the property prior to me. Now every year it seams I am sharing the land with other hunters. This wouldn't be so bad if they were the same hunters each year but they are not. These guys come in opening day or through the next couple of weeks setting up stands and scouting around while I am trying to hunt. I have not seen a deer since the weekend after opening day. I ran into two guys this saturday walking around and have set up two stands about thirty yards from one of mine. If history repeates itself I will see few dear untill opening day gun season when they are on the run.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to handle the problem? The owner and the farmer who leases the crop ground can't say no to peaple asking to hunt, they will not let me sign a lease and hunting property is hard to come by in this area.
