Interesting coffee blind conversation

Postby BigBlondeBirdDog » Wed Nov 06, 2013 5:33 pm

: Well, heres the jest of a conversation over coffee this morning with a sheriff and ex-sheriff.

The discussion was over "found/lost" shotty's left behind by hunters in a hurry. What would you do if you found one? Every year, once or twice on here we read about someone loses one. My uncle is the ex-sheriff, retired who said he pulled into a parking lot that had 4 shottys on the ground, and no one around. He ran the numbrrs and returned to a local man who let his kids borrow them .... asssssss chewins all around that day!

But, CBL and I had this discussion a few hunts back ... what if you shot an old hand me down, and srumbled upon a Benelli or a really nice double ... just somthing outta your league ... post it, askin for a reward? Keep it knowing its now got an owner that will apreciate it? Turn it in to the po-po ... what would you do?

Turn it in to the cops without blinking. Any other answer is theft. At least in my eyes
May your birds fly low and your aim be true!

See thats what I asked ... a found firearm isnt "theft" ... but definatly not a moral victory in my mind either

Say the person who lost it reports it stolen? If you keep it then you could possibly be in possession of a stolen gun.

But man if it was a REALLY NICE SHOOTER :eek:

I would being crying as I handed it over to the po-po. But I would have to hand it over. :rolleyes:

It might spend a day or two in the blind before I took it to them, but to the cops it would go! :thumbsup:

But it would have to go, cause that is the right thing to do, eventually, maybe after the season was over, and shot a few rounds of trap. :wink:

Then, diffinately I would do the right thing and turn it in, right after spring snow goose :beer: :beer: !!!

Hahahaha ... funny! For the record, NOOOOOOO DIDNT FIND A SHOTTY ... Once again, it was just a conversation started in the blind on a "what if" ... plus every year, we always get a "Lost gun" thread, where we slap the guy around for being in a hurry in the firat place.

Plus, at least its a actual conversation, rather than trolls and threads that have nothing to do with hunting ... as of late.

I just turned in two sheets of forever postage stamps I found laying by my car when I was at the post office.

I'd probably try and find the owner via the web for a few days and then turn it into the cops.
UNLESS it was a benelli, then I'd just throw it in the river and do the guy a favor. :biggrin:

Finding a shotgun is a whole lot different than finding a dime on the sidewalk!

Every effort should be made to get that gun back into the hands of its rightful owner anything less is not honorable, we are supposed to look out for each other aren't we?

If you find a firearm and don't turn it in for claims, your just as guilty as a thief

I talked to a guy last year that tried to locate the owner of gun he found at the Samish Unit. He placed a flyer by the board and a few on the forums and never had anyone claim it. He was actually hunting with it when I talked to him.

I would probably post info at the location I found it and on the forums. I doubt I would take it to the police, because it would probably be destroyed or sold if no-one claimed it.

Were it mine, I would be very appreciative! But having said that some may not be in the position I am to repay monetarily.There are other ways to show said appreciation.

Good on you for doing the standup sportsman thing and going that extra step to make a mistake on his part take a turn for the good!

Good karma points your way.....

Meatss, I'd like to say ... but he hasnt posted anything else in his original thread over on the fuge ... so I'll just say, stand up guy who seems to have made a mistake ... what we agreed on as a reward is between us ... unless he posts it.

Im just glad it all worked out for the best

People may question NOT your character, but your ability to keep your story straight...

Just saying.

And regarding Karma, expect NOTHING in return, for any good deed. That is the entire premise of (good) Karma.. You will never be disappointed. And if anything is due to you, it will come to you, naturally.

Anyhow, you did the right thing, reward or no reward.

Sean is a good guy. Spends A LOT of time afield with his kids. Whether it was him, or one of his boys who left the gun behind is irrelevant.

Good outcome. Win-win situation.
