Quit crying. If it was the DNR you deserved it, If it was someone trying to hunt leagally in that same area You deserved it. That simple. Stay within the law and things like this wouldn't happen.
You are not wrong about bear baiting. If anything it shows how people change their opinions based on the animal being hunted.
Remember though too that there is no 1 rule for leaving treestands. Each type of public land has their own rules. Some its perfectly fine, some its illegal. Usually when this conversation is had, people don't specify the land type so its a total crapshoot of opinions, half of which don't even apply to the actual situation.
Yep everyone hates this, but its ok for making a bear bait. Doesn't that claim an area? If someone wants to leave a stand let them if someone else uses it so be it. Or they can just climb tree next to me. It does not mean an area is claimed. Law must get changed. And for those saying they are not going to follow the new cwd rules. Isn't that against the law as much as leaving a stand? Actually had potential to do more harm.
LS, I don’t think it sounds bad, nor do I find your comment judgmental. I’d do the same. That’s what our over the top PC society does to people, making you feel like you are doing something wrong by telling the truth or saying how you feel. You weren’t demeaning anyone, just relaying your own, real observations.
IMO it’s also a safety concern.
Speaking of squirrel hunting, that is one negative about public land bow hunting. I know this sounds bad but if I see a Toyota, I move on to a new spot. That is a big indicator of the type of hunting taking place there. I play the odds, 90% of the time I'm right. Pew pew pew. I swear they must shoot 50 times for 2 squirrels.
My dad has squirrel hunters on private land he hunts too. They carry both a gun and bow so they can shoot anything. Property lines LOL, sure.
Thanks, yes all huntable has three 5 acre fields, bordering properties are 600 and 200 acre ownership. I know Tigerton is nuts as my brothers property boarders some. He has wonders all the time. They can't seem to figure out the lot line is a creek LOL. Usually squirrel hunters.
that land around Tigerton, complete nonsense. All those bone collectors paying that type of money for 40 acre sections. 40 on top of 40 on top of 40 with 2 guys a piece. that is such a waste of time. 50 guys with the same few big bucks on camera. If you look up tigerton lumber company area, it's listed under "over pressured cluster F" in the dictionary.
Do they shoot some big deer, yes. Not worth half of what people are paying. Great area obviously and I know guys with bigger chunks, much bigger, they kill big deer. The area's with 40's and everyone on the boarders, it's a joke for the money.
Lyle, that is a very good price - considering most of that 57 acres is "huntable". Meaning there isn't a 30-40 acre field and 15 acres of woods, or swamp that is not accessible. In the past I've paid $3000 - $4000 for 40-50 acre chunks in north central Wisconsin - overpaid yes I know. Leaning more towards the public land hunting in years to come, I have not found the hunting to be worth what I've paid, but there are definitely pieces out there. That would be one of them by the price and acreage.
