Default Someone Shot my Buck!!!

I've beenhunting a small privatefarm in Bucks County in Southeastern PA since i was 12 (i'm now 23). Theres actually two groups of hunters that hunt thisfarm, us and another group that started hunting there just a few years ago. Since its a small farm, we've come to somewhat of a gentleman's agreement that we would hunt on opposite ends of the farm, so we wouldn't be getting in each others way. Well when i got to my stand this afternoon, i found one of the other hunters around my stand....he was looking for blood from a deer that he hit, so i decided to help him track it. Wouldn't you know it, about 80 yards later we find the deer laying there....and its the same buck that i've been scouting since July. He was an 11 pointer with a 20" spread....by far the biggest buck i've seen up close. I had him by my stand several times but he was just outside of my comfort zone and i didn't want to risk taking a poor shot at the deer. Sorry for rambling on, i just had to vent. I was a little upset to see the buck that i've been hunting all season get shot from my stand...but by a different hunter who didn't have permission to use my stand!!!

That guy had no right to be there. It's those type of people that ruin huntings reputation.

Did you actually catch him in your stand?

Did the blood trail start from in front of your stand?

Is it possible that he shot the deer on another part of the "small" farm and he happened to run into the area near your stand?

He shot a buck that you had scouted. Bummer, that's why they call it hunting.

So, he actually said "I was in your stand when I shot the buck"?
If so I'd break his knee caps so he couldn't climb my stand again!
Not really, but I'd make sure he knew he wasn't welcome in my stand
or any other that he did not set!

No, he told me he was in my stand when he shot. I had to work today, so i didn't get to the farm until 4ish. He said he got there around 2:30 and there were no other cars around so he didn't think anyone was going to hunt that day so he jumped in my stand. Its not that its a "small" farm... its about 100 acres or so (i'm not totally sure)butabout70% of that is fields.

I'd be pissed. I am very protective of 'my' deer. So bad, that i have trouble letting my dad or friends hunt my stands...hehehe.

Just go pee all over their deer stands man. Its only right.
