There was a spot on public land we hunted for years on with no competition. It didn't really look like a good spot, so we pretty much had it to our own. We took a good family friend in there a couple of times. Next thing we know, there's someone there every time we tried it. We had to abandon the spot to avoid this type of confrontation. Admittedly, I felt like someone took "our spot" even though it wasn't on private property.


I have one of those spots but I know someday a new crowd will come in and that will be the end my Buddies and I little piece of paradise. Never invite anyone outside the circle.


He was in the circle. We've been hunting with him for years. Couldn't imagine that he would tell. He just let it slip in passing to a neighbor. His neighbor started the snowball.

I don't have private land to hunt, so I'm out in the public domain every season. I try to be respectful of other people's hunts, so, if I cross paths or see another hunter...I quietly back out and find another path to my location...thinking maybe if I jump a deer, it'll run right to the other guy...wish everyone thought like this...on two seperate occasions last year, I ran into non-respectful hunters. We get out to the woods before daylight, set up our blind and sit quietly...this guy drives his atv within 10 feet of my blind!! I know he saw us, he waved on his way by!! Another guy was walking through the woods and didn't see us. I gave a little bob white whistle to quietly announce our presence. You think he quietly backed out? Nope. He waved and walked right through all our shooting lanes, posted up about 150 yards away, and lit up a friggin' cigarette!!! Now, I smoke, and was jonesin' pretty bad, because, again, we got out before daylight, and had not had a smoke all morning!! Talk about P.O.'d!!

Moral of the story? Please be respectful of your fellow hunters!! (climbing off soapbox now)

I got on a lease one time in Giles county. There were 6 of us. For 2 days we scouted and hung stands. After everyone found the spot they wanted, I hung my stand last after everyone had thier place picked up. I was seeing deer every morning, and evening. They were crossing to me from one direction in the morning, and from the oppisite direction in the evening. Well I made the mistake telling them. The next trip down, one person hung a stand one direction from me, and another person did the same in the other direction. Needless to say, the cut the deer off from me. Needless to say, I learned the hard way to keep quite !

I always hear the same story, its my spot. On public land, it is what it is, public. The problem I have is someone putting up 2 or 3 stands and then calling all spots theirs. Thats the reason I carry my stand in and out every time I do. One, so nobody can find my location on public land. Second, so nobody steals it. I had a spot I hunted alot on public land. It was a pretty good walk back in there and I never seen anyone back there in this spot. I climbed this one poplar tree over about a three year period so much the bark was worn off one side. I named the tree the "killin tree". One morning I had a fella walk in on me and seen me perched 30' up the poplar tree. After I left that day I had a bad feeling someone found the spot I had hunted alone for the last few years. Well I went back in there the next Saturday morning and someone had a climber locked to the bottom of the killin tree. I haven't hunted it since, maybe I will hunt it some this year.

I was hunting Chuck Swan about 15 years ago. This dude came in on me and set up about 50 yards away. I waved my orange hat and he waved back! After about an hour a spike came up behind me. I had to lean out from the tree and twist around to shoot it. My old .348 rolled him over. I drug it right past him and he looked pissed! He made some smart a$$ comment but I just ignored it. When I got to my truck, the bastard had parked right on top of me where it made it very difficult for me to maneuver my truck out. I got out and took a dump by his truck door where it was highly likely he'd step in it. That'll learn him!

Boys, your bowels are a weapon! Nothing, I mean nothing, shows someone your distaste for them more than sh!tting on them. I have a couple of instances where I have "learnt" tresspassers with the fragrant produce of my innards.
