road hunting

Postby HotDog » Mon Nov 12, 2007 4:13 am

Is it just me, or is anyone else bothered by road hunters? I know the law says its illegal, but how can you enforce such a law?

It doesn't really bother me what they do. If they can afford $3.10 a gallon for their big trucks then let them go at it. The only thing that does bother me is if they are going to go 10mph then get to the side of the road and let other people go by. It takes me 10-15min to get to work during the off season. This year during season it has moved up to anywhere from 30-45min due to road side hunter's not getting the heck out of the way.

You are right, the only venison in his freezer was killed by "road hunters" :rofl: . Only problem is you need to watch for auto parts in the meat. :tongue:
2007 so far: not enough

That's right !!!! I save a bunch of money on meat tenderizer. Only problem is getting to them before they start to bloat. With this type of weather it's not that big a deal. You just have to get the blood clot's out before butchering :wink:

Personally I find road hunting in my area to be a necessity. There are so few Goose hunters where I live that after the first few hours of the morning the geese are all where they're going to be. No-one else is out hunting putting pressure on them and moving them around, so we have to scan the corn-fields to find the flocks.

Purists scowl, but sneeking up on a big flock of Canadas is a lot harder harder than it sounds. Most times I end up low-crawling for several hundred yards only to find that the geese have moved or something else spooks them at the last minute.

well Goody I have to agree with you on the whole road hunting thing. I also use that same method to hunt and stock geese.

Road huntings not for me, i cant stand to sit in a truck, id rather have a bad day in a corn field than drive around in a truck. I have however used the railroad tracks to stalk geese on more than one ocasion! The burms give quite a lot of cover. The only thing to carry with you on a hunt like that is a H&R Single Shot 10. That does the trick at long range!!! :thumbsup:
