Yeah, I tried to get info about when they plan on being there. But it was made very clear that they wanted claim on the area. And I understand about the working thing, but on the same token, its public land (well, kinda with a permit). But the dude's attitude is what got me with his disregard for other land users. And, the Warden thing was a no-go also b/c I didn't want the other guys to have their day messed with. Honestly, if somebody tries to work something out, is approachable, or attempts to do the right thing, I'm good. I made a good hunting buddy when he screwed up one of my days, and we laugh about it now. But I may make the call if that guy blatantly does something like that again at another spot in the area.
Swanny, good luck. I tried jump shooting in another area and I did a good job of scaring away a bunch of buffies and blacks. They may have made their way over to your area laughing at me. And if you ever see my car at the access point, feel free to make your way in and set up with me. With the work I put in, somebody should get to kill a duck and with my aim, it likely won't be me.
One thing duck hunting has taught me is that in prehistoric time, I would probably be a gatherer.
