  •  Hunting season is going to really hurt (6+ / 0-)

    We always have accidental shootings.  People hear a noise and expect it is a deer and not their hunting partner wearing nothing but camoflage.

    •  Yeah, I just loved getting shot at while (12+ / 0-)

      riding a horse through the woods and the only season open was turkey! But hunters are very responsible. Oh! And I wasn't alone. There were two of us on horseback. I can understand how that sounded like a turkey - not.

      Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.

        across this guy's land who has moved. No one knows he's gone and he's kinda crusty. Known to threaten to pistol whip trespassers and he always carries a long barreled revolver. I guess you could say he's conversationally blunt.

        Nice access to a lot of National Forest.

        He told me to toss anyone I saw down a mine shaft.

        First person I saw on Friday was some mountain bike lady who weighed about 80lbs wet probably. Sickly. Probably lack of protein. She started splainin about access via public land. I smiled and told her I wasn't who she thought I was. (he's on the other side of the state for 3 years but they don't know, his reputation is horrid)

        Saturday I saw a yuppie couple with a dog. They leashed it immediately but I still wasn't overjoyed. Deer freak over dogs. I said hi and nice day and stuff but didn't smile. As they were passing I looked them in the eye and dead panned, "how'd you get here?" They both jumped in at once saying they'd just heard that it was ok to use that kind of unofficial trail etc. from someone who lived up near here etc etc etc. I told them as long as they didn't trespass it's probably ok. Didn't know how far to pull their leg, and my heart just wasn't into being mean. They no doubt thought I was that guy. I'm kind of ugly, hadn't shaved, I'm old, and big, just like him. I need to get my front teeth fixed.

        Hate people making noise during hunting season. Good thing that guy who owns the land they cut across has moved.

        My point is don't imitate a turkey during turkey season.

        •  Yeah, that makes sense. (0+ / 0-)

          Hunters shouldn't exercise a modicum of caution before firing at whatever sound they hear out in the forest, it's up to every other person to make it clear at all times that they aren't the shifty idiot's intended prey. Because that's plausible.
