Trouble with Anti's

Here in the UK we have some trouble with anti's.Here is an account of what happened one day. It was a nice crisp winters evening and we had just finished a good days pheasant shooting,we were stood about dicussing the days events when a car suddenly pulled up,three untidy people leapt out and started shouting insults at us over the fence.The two men and a woman looked like they had never had a wash for months and certainly hadn't been to the hairdressers for years.They continued ranting and raving while we stood listening rather bemused,what it boiled down to was,they were accusing us of being cruel murderers,after a while it got a bit much and some of the younger guys with us told the three they had better go before they got a boot up the backside.After a few more insults they climbed back in the car and tore of down the road,they hadjust gone round the first bend when we heard a dull thud.A few minutes later one of the scruffy men came slowly walking towards us,he looked at us and then said,'i say chaps,wev'e gone of the road up there,you couldn't possibly come with the Land Rover and pull us out could you? I will leave it to you to guess the reply.

Revenge

Ah, sweet revenge! I'd have pulled them out but cash up front. They would have declined, I'm easy, not cheap!

I love it!!!  I would have

I love it!!!  I would have paid to have seen that.... lol

Usually that's just it, it's people with nothing better to do (No job, no "life"), having to have some sort of "cause" to make themselves feel special.

The animal rights people will always be around, we just need to deal with thier annoyances.  Glad to see this happen to them. Wink

me too

The one time that I had to deal with anti-hunters while hunting I found it quite funny.  I was standing there with a loaded rifle in my hand while an unarmed anti-hunting baffoon was literally screaming threats at me and challenging me to a fist fight.  I couldn’t help laughing at him as I very deliberately made sure that the safety on my rifle was firmly ON.  I just shook my head and walked away smiling at the irony of this unarmed idiot trying to provoke a physical confrontation with a man holding a loaded rifle.  It was the absolute height of stupidity and told me everything that I ever wanted to know about the anti-hunting movement.

 

I had a similar experience to your fellows going off teh road last winter.  I was driving slow in snow and on icy roads on a steeply sloped and curvy road.  I downshifted at teh top of a hill that I knew had a particularly tricky curve and slowed my car to a crawl.  The vehicle behind me swung out around and passed me speeding up, actually accelerating as they zoomed downhill.  At the first curve they were off the road, actually running over the warning sign that said there was a sharp curve.  I stopped and made sure that everyone was all right before continueing my way slowly home....

A few years ago my two sons and i were loading our shooting gear into the car when this young guy suddenly appeared,it rather startled us as it was very early in the morning and there wasn't a soul about.This guy was quick on the uptake,he saw the guns and said,'going hunting are ya.'We are, i replied to which this guy suddenly got excited and started hurling foul abuse at us.My son told him to shut his foul mouth to which the youth then challenged the 3 of us to a fight.Well,he must have stood no more than 4 foot 6 and weighed at least 8 stone.My youngest son who is the biggest of us all told him to go home before he tanned his ass.The young lad then got cold feet and started to run off,he turned round and shouted that he was going to tell his mum,honestly some people.We didn't know who he was and we never saw him again.

all over I guess

I guess they are all over and all the same! I have always been curious as to how many pounds are in a 'stone'  ???  I'm sure I must have heard or read how heavy an english 'stone' is but I can't remember it.

That really was a great ending to your story.  Sorry you guys had to endure such brief trouble after your hunt. Similar situations happen over here in the States on occasion.  Over here it's legally a crime to unlawfully interfere with a hunt or to prevent lawful hunting on public land where allowed.  It's never happened to me, lucky for any anti who would attempt it.  I'm not so tolerant of that type of crusade.  I'd be very inclined to place them under citizens arrest with zip-ties at gunpoint and hold them until either the State Police, a Fish & Game Warden, or local sherrif arrived.  Someone would really be rolling the dice with fate if they ever harrassed me for hunting where I had the right.

We have an anti organisation over here called The League against Cruel Sports,they send their hired hands out anywhere they know theres people hunting or fishing,they just make a nuisance of themselves and try to disrupt any sport.They are a rent amob outfit who know nothing about wild life or about life in the countryside,they live in a world where little bunny rabbits wear blue velvet jackets and foxes don't really kill lambs.
