    Please don't send pictures to a publication claiming your 2 yoa son shot a 11 point with his .270.

    Don't claim you ranch raised, genetically seleccted, high fence raised trophy whitetail that you paid several thousand for as a fair chase kill. This actually was tried by a Florida hunter who ended up with criminal charges for entering it in a contest.

    I've know folks who without a doubt poach deer and have the nerve mount the head. We all know those who we highly suspect, but can't prove.

    If I'm hunting in a block of woods and have been there all morning, I still have the right to shoot any deer that crosses my path..regardless of the fact you arrived much later with your dogs.

    If you come across me in my stand, please don't stop and try to have a conversation. Did I see. anything this morning? yep...you.

    Please don't drag your deer all over town for hours on end to show your buddies, to include stopping to eat lunch at the diner when it's 70degrees outside.

    Any one else need to vent?:D

    My 19 month old daughter got her first buck yesterday - a 7 pointer with a compound bow at 60 yards. Wanna pic?

    yes... if you shot at a deer, that doesn't mean you hit it. Don't lie about it and spend an hour under my stand looking for the deer that we both know you missed. When living things are hit with a bullet, they bleed. Own your miss and move on. Then, later, when you're NOT right on top of where I am hunting (I should say WAS before you showed up), work on your shooting and tracking skills.

    Yes, Please stop shooting from inside the cab of your truck on public land (do what you want on your own.) And Please don't drive your truck, with rifles pointed out the windows down the logging road along the treeline looking for a lucky shot...then back the other way 30 min later... then again 30 min after that. [/facepalm]

    our kindergarten center used to have a small herd of really nice looking deer. Trophies for any state, fenced or otherwise. A bunch of high school kids went over with a .22 and a machete to harvest the heads... only heads, and showed off the antlers at school. They were promptly arrested as it was widely known the only trophy deer of that caliber were at the kindergarten... and were brutally murdered and decapitated recently.
    If anyone here is from the columbia county florida region, you know what I'm talking about. I believe their story was about a trophy hunt on some big Texas ranch. If I remember right, they even left the ear tags on.

    My rant is those deer were there for the community to enjoy and some dumb-sh^&^& rednecks wanted to brag about slaughtering them for the publicly recognizeable antlers. Even inside-cab 'drive' hunting has more honor than that.

    One of my biggest pet peeves... This mentality:

    Hunters who are too closed minded to realize that just because there's a fence doesn't mean squat.

    Let me get this straight... what you are saying is that because the ranch management spends a lot of time and effort selectively cutting the herd to ensure better genetics, and because there's a fence somewhere around a couple thousand acres... it's not really hunting? ...as if you could magically summon the perfect buck to your location? News flash, deer are still deer inside or outside of a fence. The big bucks still get to be that way by being smart. Adding a fence doesn't cause them to be suicidal.

    This sort of mentality usually comes from the same crowd that decrys hunting over a feeder... while they spend their whole season hunting over a corn field in a tree they've liberally soaked with some sort of lure. You might as well just mow "Boss Buck" in the field, because it's a feeder.

    If you are hunting on public land, please pick up after yourself. This includes shotshell hulls. If you are too lazy to pick up spent shells, then at least get a break open shotgun.

    Let's not get off on that silliness about high fences, okay?

    How about club members who put up six or eight stands effectively laying claim to the spot although they say you can use it if you like but never tell you where or when they are going to hunt. PITA for us that like to still hunt when every likely spot has a stand on it.

    Missing a deer at 100 yards like I did the other day! I HATE when I do that!! And it was a big one too.

    Of course I've figured out why I missed. It was due to geographic misalignment of the sub continental shelf causing a gravity shift and a crystal vortex energy burst to send a focused beam of of highly concentrated sub atomic matter deflecting my bullet as it left the muzzle.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.:)

    Wow, that's bad luck.

    agreed...I don't want this thread to become a high fence debate. I don't have an issue with it, and I would probably try one in Texas one day, but be honest and state that you harvested the animal at such a place and not give an implication otherwise.

    Another peeve...do bears crap in th woods? Apparently people do as well. Nothing worse than a toilet paper "gut pile" with accompanied by the souvenir balled up underwear.

    What's a stand?

    It's called "hunting", not "waiting" - go chase the deer and try to outsmart them

    I hunt different ways depending on what I feel like, and I can't imagine why anybody would care how I do it anymore than I care about how you do it.

    And yep again, a "real" "still hunter".............."still" huntin' over someone else's dogs................you wanna "still hunt" GO some place where THAT is the preferred and singular permitted method! Grips the devil outta me that the righteous types that put a stand in prime dog hunt territory just have to constantly comment about the fact that 'their' method is somehow morally and ethically the ONLY proper way to do it....

    Hurt your feelin's...........sorry about that!

    Re: folks leaving trash... I found such a pile one time in the National forest I hunt, and was all pi$$ed off until I looked at it and realized the idiot responsible had left, among the shot shells and other trash, the CREDIT CARD RECEIPT from the local Academy where he'd bought it all! Off I went to the ranger station where the evidence was gratefully received. Next time I was back there, it had been well cleaned up!

    The land is there for all to hunt. Prime dog hunting territory may be prime still hunting territory as well.

    It's wrong if a I have my CB on and I am purposely trying to strategically place my vehicle in a place where I can shoot the same deer your dogs are working. It's not wrong to not want to set up prior to any dog hunters arrival and hunt.

    And yet another pet peeve...dog hunters purposefully running dogs through a posted still hunt only area.
