i hear you, i think they said it was 200 acres too, so if they dont want it hunted, they have to post the heck out of it.
The hunters are probably putting their tree stands on the fringes of adjoining property owners land, which is fine, but the nervous nellies out there will see some one in orange and think the world is coming to an end.
the other night i was talking to a friend who is a non-hunter but a police officer and he said he has seen men "hunting with rifles" - "on his property" behind his house in south eastern mass.
After further discussion, it turns out that this land was actually not HIS, but the adjoining rod and gun club's land, and he just happened to see someone in orange walking through the woods. I tried to talk sense to him, but he grew up in the city and has never hunted or really spent any time outdoors. I thought that as a cop he would have at least more experience with the hunting concept, but he actually said that he "felt threatened" by the presence of these hunters simply walking by on his neighbor's land? He was convinced the guy had a rifle during deer season, which I tried to explain wasnt likely, but he was convinced he was right.
Im not saying this to bash cops, because all of my cop friends who hunt are all very safe and talented hunters. I just thought this guy would at least have been somewhat more exposed to the hunting concept than the average suburban nitwit.
