We get check aleast 2X's a yr. Most the time the opening weekend, or if not then, Thanksginving weekend. Then the next time we see them is last day of the season. You can set your clock on the last weekend he's going to come by. If by chance there's alot of birds in the area, then we might see them a 3rd time, but that the most. (knot on wood).
At our place, we (the farmer) put up signs that said " No unauthorized vehicles with-out land owners permission". Locked all the gates. They (GW) is more than welcome to walk in to our holes, most time they are to lazy. If the the GW gets on the land with a truck, we call our farmer, and he confronts him about. They can not drive on posted land if it is posted as above. They CAN walk on, they have that right. Our farmer rode one young dude up one side and down the other last yr. cause he drove out into one of our fields to check us. (Last day of the season) Some have that "I'm the law atttiude,I can do as I please". We was working some birds opening weekend several yrs. back, and they drove out into the field and then got out and started walking toward us, knowing we was working birds. We had to yelled at them to stop and wait. Then they came and ck us. Said they didn't see the birds we was calling. They saw the birds that fell...said nice shot.
Now 2 yrs ago, the GW that rammed the mini van in the walmart in West Mphs. shoot out, came by and check us.
Mr. Micheal Neal was his name. Very nice, professional. Willing to help with any info that we needed.
Showed us the gun that he was shooting that day...... Said that he fired 36/37 shots.....25 of them hit meat!!!!!!!!
Said that most shoot-outs last only 5 to 7 seconds....That one lasted 35 seconds. AND thats the 2nd one he's been in.
Most of the time, they are just doing their jobs. Lic,guns, ammo, and birds..then they are gone. I personally, would not want their job. What 35/40 grand a yr. and your get to carry a pistol. I do that any-ways and make a few $ more.
