The look on their faces was priceless. Eventually they figured that they couldn't do anything to stop us so they left, utterly disgusted. :lol3:


What you did didn't solve anything. In fact it probably made it worse. Don't be the bad guy.

You just blow in from stupid town?


Wow, I haven't heard that one since second grade.

Said, "call the game warden on yourself for hunter harassment". Then I called and reported him as he stood there. It was thanksgiving day. No law enforcement available. It was an interesting standoff but we had guns, he didn't. lol

Never been harassed in NC. Have shot at couple people though and burned down some blinds for fun. Hope that wasn't your blind Sparks

NC theres only one area where this type of stuff happens but everywhere else is relatively fine. Core sound, its all outlaws.
Theres a reason they call it the gold coast

Really? Trespassing anti hunter hippies try to run me off my own families land, I held my ground, continued to hunt in spite of their harassment, and I'm the bad guy? They left, we kept hunting. That goes down in my book as "problem solved". The fact that they left utterly butt hurt over the ordeal just made it all that much more satisfying to me. Still does actually.

That's not what I'm trying to say. Running them off I agree with, they had no right to be there. I don't agree with their views either, since I know crows are pests. What I don't agree with is the way you handled it. You don't have to behave like a ****. It will most likely lead to more hate instead of understanding.

You steal that last line from a John Lennon song or something? How should I have handled it? Spend hours of my prime hunting time trying to convince them that they are wrong? Screw that. I'm not going to get huggy-feely with some ass hats that show up with the intent to purposely ruin my hunt. I was minding my own business, they came in with hate, they left with butt hurt (which they could have avoided if they left the property when I told them to).

Had some dude park his minivan on the road I was trying to hunt coyotes next too and he just chilled there until I left and just glared at me.

Had a dude tell me to get lost from a spot I was hunting legally. I left but then came back 10 minutes later and shot a grip of ducks.

I think Clamp showed more restraint than I would have. Public land is one thing, some one messing with me on my family's property would not end well.

What you did didn't solve anything. In fact it probably made it worse. Don't be the bad guy.

Really? Trespassing anti hunter hippies try to run me off my own families land, I held my ground, continued to hunt in spite of their harassment, and I'm the bad guy? They left, we kept hunting. That goes down in my book as "problem solved". The fact that they left utterly butt hurt over the ordeal just made it all that much more satisfying to me. Still does actually.


That's not what I'm trying to say. Running them off I agree with, they had no right to be there. I don't agree with their views either, since I know crows are pests. What I don't agree with is the way you handled it. You don't have to behave like a ****. It will most likely lead to more hate instead of understanding.

You steal that last line from a John Lennon song or something? How should I have handled it? Spend hours of my prime hunting time trying to convince them that they are wrong? Screw that. I'm not going to get huggy-feely with some ass hats that show up with the intent to purposely ruin my hunt. I was minding my own business, they came in with hate, they left with butt hurt (which they could have avoided if they left the property when I told them to).


Ok. Do whatever you want. Obviously you are always right. I don't really care anymore.


That's better. I will. Usually am. Boo-hoo.

Clamp I agree cept I might have taken them on to jail here in GA. I can't do them quote things like yall do, anywho, the one time I had a problem, well hunter harassment is against the law here in GA. Only time I have ever pointed a gun at someone on a hunt, the lil SOB was making a stalk on my goose decoys where I was set up on a point of an island, He was dropped off by a boat and actually came about 6-700 yards to stalk my decoys, told him if he pulled his trigger, I was gonna pull mine and to get the h*ll on. Hel left in a hurry!! :yes:

I was hunting on camp lejeune here in east nc. It was about 15 min before LST and a base game warden wanted to come check my stuff out even though I was hunting a public marsh bordering the base which the warden still has authority over. The problem was he wanted to do a full shock standing at my blind and could not get a hold of his headquarters to check my base privileges out. Well he ended up staying there as birds were flying over and not leaving until about 30 min after shooting time. Needless to say it was annoying. Then was at my truck when I left to check my take when I left. He must have been bored.

I was hunting in one of the game lands that opens at 4. I was there and went in at 4. The group showed up 20 min before shooting time. I shined them off with the light they responded with we got you and the unexperienced guy in their group was asking the other why we were going so close to them. He responded with we only have to be 50yds away. When I saw where they were going to set up I asked if they were serious Turned into a heated argument they left before 8 and I got back to flat tires on my truck. Huey were members on here too

That sounds about right on the gamelands. I had guys do the same thing and se tup 75 yards directly in front of us. We showed them where we were and everything. Had a guy this year get mad cause we kept beating him out and getting the spot so he through a fit and road through my decoys and was a big bitch about it. Came back to a flat tire on that one. I have had guys backstand our land and shoot swinging ducks while trespassing. That was fun.
NE NC can be ridiculous some times. People can be real jerks just to shoot a duck.

Yep its not fun. I saw your other post about people shooting ducks as they swing to come into your spot. I know of a spot where guys have stopped hunting it because the neighbors where shooting birds that were coming into their impoundment. Ruined the hunting for them and they just gave up the spot. Its bs and I had to confront a group of guys who were doing just that and were trespassing as well. It didnt come to blows or anything but i had some words and the game wardens know and I am gonna do my best to make sure they dont do it again.

There's a guy down here on our peninsula that plants 10's of thousands of acres of winter wheat. It's about the only thing that draws geese to the area off the refuges. He leases up a ton of land just to keep it unhunted. He hunts a few days a year and slaughters them, but it's not hard when they've been coming to the same field for months unmolested.

A local guide reportedly set up on the fenceline on him once. He strolled over and said if he didn't leave now and if he ever did that again, all of that wheat would be plowed under, not replanted and there wouldn't be a goose around for a good while.

His fencelines are clear now...
