Or, how about this one... On the previous day you work a bird from 10:00 to 1:30 and never get a shot. Go back the next day get to where he is roosted, he flies down the ridge behind you. He gobbles acting like he is comming in to you then you hear BOOM, then 5 sec later, BOOM. And the booms are not yours or your buddies!!!!

Ditto renegade. A guy drove up a little after I did and we talked and I made sure I'd be out of his way. He even told me where the birds where roosted and he was dead on. I know why he didnt mess with them now. He hiked in a mile farther than I did. Wonder why..

I think that bird might be the same one I called to a ditch yesterday at 12:30. It was only 100 yards from where I was at this morning.

Turn your caps lock of goober, we can hear you.

Once I had a guy walk thru my decoy spread and he was talking on one cell phone and texting on another. In his ear was a two way radio transmitter that he whispered into every once in awhile.

Then a guy asked me to 'Check and see if these were gobblers?'

In the back of his truck was two hens and one was a banded bird from the wildlife sanctuary. Upon closer inspection I found out it was actually a California Condor that was carrying a tracking beacon. Before we got thru talking there was a chopper in the air that was directing ground forces to the guy's location.

I almost forgot the best part. The other bird turned out to be a Giant Spotted Owl which had been released from a zoo after it was discovered that there were only 2 left in captivity and this one was carrying a dozen fertilized eggs.

Man I tell ya, this guy was really a jerk and that's why I never hunt public land anymore.
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

seems like im not the only one who deals with idiots on a regular basis...

Then again, I have met some nice, helpful people on public land as well. Much less frequently, though.

I've met some doosies on public land but must say I've met one of the nicest guys there this year. His house backs up to it and I'd seen a longbeard a couple of times in a field as I passed by. Well he stops one day when I'm at the truck and we get to talking and he tells me more and more and I tell him what I know. Before it was over we ended up hunting the afternoon together and I've run into him again since then and shot the bull. Restores my faith in public land hunters at least until the next idgit shows up which probably won't be long.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

The googans can add amusement to any public land hunt.

just wait till someone walks right thru your dekes set up on a firebreak visble for 250 yards in 4 directions cause they heard the bird you was working when they got out of the car at 8 oclock in the morning

no such thing as hunter courtesy on public land at times from alot of people it seems like...

it can be aggravating

if someone is in a spot i would have liked to have hunted that day before me and i see them
i will back off and go elsewhere
but it seems that favor is hardly never returned by others to me...

Reminds me of a time in area 32 when I was setup off a field with hen decoys(this field is not visible from the road). A goober, not gobbler, came to the far end of the field, 250 yards or more and I watched him sneak the field edge(he was not in the woods, field edge) all the way to my decoys. When he got about 50 yards from my decoys he just stood there looking around. I finally yelled "what are you doing?" He just turned and walked the way he came. He never looked back. UFB!
