Just in case someone doesn't know if you hunt public free lance places you have to be 200 yards from other parties. So if there is someone else there before you, you must be 200 yards apart. My theory is if you are within 200 yards i'm peppering your ass!! If you can't judge distances then let me know and i will personally take you out and count out 200 yards!!!

I'm not sure if it's don't understand the 200 yards or don't care. Between that and skybusting/treetopping I quit hunting there almost 20 yrs ago.

It's almost heartbreaking to have ducks working your spread in the timber and have some numbnuts bust at them over the trees on the swing.

What do you mean "Almost"? It flat pisses me off.However on the flip side I will never feel guilty about shooting ducks that are actually decoying right in even if the group next to me has some trying. It's first come first serve......
