Deer Hunting Gripe Thread
We have had some problems with poachers in the past . Seems to have settled down a bit. A few yrs ago, I called the now fired warden Jason Behr . He got on it fast. He called to tell me he didn't find any over baiting . Just before I hung up I mentioned there is a cabin that keeps its lights on all night long gun season eve and a few days after that. I was hesitant but accused them of poaching at night. A few weeks later he walks up on the cabin with the lights on at 10:40 pm..Peeks inside to see a 66 yr old man with window open, crossbow loaded and cocked, overhead lights on, 10 gal. of pumpkin, a mechanical feeder to boot. This was after he had a nice buck registered in Nov. He got slapped real good. The next two gun season eves ,, ,, he has his back lights on again. I never called thugh . This yr it was off , and those guys never fired a shot all weekend . That never happened before. The deer hung around our cabin much more last weekend. I think they got caught again. Maybe the whole gang too cause the only cabin occupied was the guy who only trophy hunts. More bucks on the cam this yr than in a long time too. Something was different this yr.
By the way, I stood a post on my new land in northern Oneida County today. Nadda! But I did cut two sets of tracks with dew claw prints. I hope to see old mossy horns tomorrow. If not, it will still be a great day in the woods.
