Last week we secured permission from a farmer to hunt geese in a certain stubble field the following day. A few hours after we had talked to the farmer, another group of American hunters contacted him, as they also wanted to hunt the 1/4 section. The farmer turned them down. Later that afternoon as the geese were feeding in the field, the farmer observed the other group of hunters, drive out through the field at a high rate of speed, flushing the birds off. Thanks guys.
A few days later, I contacted another farmer to secure permission to hunt a barley stubble field. He was not happy with American hunters, and asked if I was part of the group from a particular state (not the same group that truck flushed the birds). I advised I was not. It seems these other hunters had hunted the same field the previous week. They had used a pickup truck to push around some large round bales. As they did, they broke so many strings on the bales, that the bales fell apart when he tried to load them on a wagon. I spent a good part of the afternoon visiting with the farmer, and was able to hunt the field the next day. Again - thanks guys.
