And now for something different.

Post by SlowBow on Fri Jun 07, 2013 10:47 pm

I know a lot of us have run into bums and idiots on public land. A while back, I wrote a piece for an online magazine about public land etiquette. Hope Dave doesn't mind, it was done for a different web page, but I thought some may benefit from reading it, even though much of it is really just common curtesy most of us already understand. My article begins on page 18

I can't read it on mobile but here is an observation that I have made. I have never had any trouble in archery season with anyone. When the orange army comes out is when the trouble begins. I had a guy talking to me last year and inadvertently pointing his gun at me. I got in my truck and left that spot. A couple of years ago I had been in the stand about two hours when I heard something walking. I looked over and it was a hunter, he took his stand off of his back and started hooking it to the tree. I yelled at him and he just waved and proceeded to climb. On the way out I told him what an idiot he was and tried to explain public land etiquette to him. He did not care so I left. Anyway I think bowhunters put more time and work in and have more respect for fellow man. That is only my opinion though. One of my good friends is rifle only and he is a great hunter.

Don't mind at all my friend, for a couple of reasons.
1- I trust your judgement regarding your posts on our forum.
2- It's a well written article. study Smile

Thanks Dave. Parkersdad, I envy the respect you seem to have among bowhunters where you hunt. One of the reasons I wrote the article was because on many of the Public areas closer to heavy population centers where I live, our bowseason often winds up with events similar to what you describe during your firearms hunts.
