Postby rip » Wed Jan 09, 2013 3:26 pm

Just wondering how you feel about over hunting a spot.I have been hunting a field for over 12 years and a guy got permission to hunt a couple years ago.I would hunt 2 times a week and rest the field 3 days , this guy is hunting it every night and totally Fxxxing up the place.

locals ducks, its a death sentence to over hunt a spot...once a week at the most.

late season divers....not such a big issue, the turn over is great....

everything is relative...the spot, the species, the time of year, the weather ....

but generally a goose field... for sure you can ruin it, especially if there are other fields the bird have options for

You should speak to him, maybe? If hes non-confrontable then go speak with the landowner?

Pretty simple if you ask me. You could open a can of worms though if he says that you are hunting it too much as well...then both of you are SOL.
