I love my buddy to death as we have been friends since 16yo and now in our early 30's. He is into the survivalist stuff pretty hardcore and goes to all sorts of meetings for it. Well last year we found an absolute honey hole for squirrel hunting and maybe even deer hunting on public land. This land offers public primitive camping and generally gets pounded by deer hunters because its a large area and within an hour of several very large cities. Well... what does he go and do? He invites 15-20 people on Facebook from the last survival thing to camp and squirrel hunt the same area we squirrel hunt. Okay fine, but what burned me was he did it November 8th-10th and I explained that I used to deer hunt that part of the public lands and there is always 5-6 trucks up there camping and bow hunting the rut. His response was F em its public land, I will get there on Thursday and lay claim to the area. I said I don't think its wise to squirrel hunt and sling 22lr rounds through the air or even shotgun pellets for that matter while guys are trying to bow hunt and in tree stands. His response was pretty much oh well, its public land. I wasn't much for bow hunting for along time and remember squirrel hunting public and walked in on some guys bow hunting and man were they mad! Even private land about 5yrs ago we checked the farm and no one around so we let the squirrel dog go and here comes a bow hunter MF everyone. Says he parked inside the old barn that's why we didn't see his truck. I told my buddy the other night its not bright to bring outsiders into our honey hole I was planning on bow hunting or shooting while guys are deer hunting and he says oh, these guys are legit. I met them on the internet and the gathering. He invited me and my GF to camp too and hunt/fish but I am not going. I am also worried about him because some of these guys look like they are either missing a few screws or ex con's. No way I would primitive camp with guys I only met online or once in person or even hunt with them.
