Default Not looking foward to Saturday!

Rifle season opens Saturday. The woods will be filled with drunken, stinking noisy folks. I just started bow hunting this year and it has become an addiction. I am not looking forward to every Tom, Dick and Harry being in the woods armed with guns and very little knowledge. Spooking all of the deer and making them nocturnal. I feel myself tearing up slightly. My days of nice quite times in the woods are over!!!!




I'm not referring to you hunters out there just the weekend warriors!

Yeah, in some locales the weekends can be pretty crazy, especially in the easily accessed areas. Many casual hunters have little interest in scouting an area and finding the remote hard to get to spots, and often times these are the places that the older deer head to once the orange army hits the woods.

Private land FTW(:

When hunting public land go deep into the woods or somewhere away from where all the Dick's, Tom's, and Harry's think is the hotspot and scout until you find where 'ole megabuck is hiding from them.

Yeah private land is were it's at.

Last year I was hunting on a semi-public plot of land. I climbed up in one of the 6 ladder stands that were put up by the land owner 2 years ago before he became disabled. I got up there and got situated and looked through the trees and all I saw was orange....Literally.

Never again will this ole' redneck hunt on public land.

Couldn't help noticing you're from TN. I live in TN also. Do you know where Natchez Trace State Park is? Other than draw hunts thats the only public land I find worth hunting around here.

I COMPLETELY agree!! You should see some of the swingin dick IDIOTS with guns in the woods around here! I LOVE bow season....I love the strategy, the challenges, the difficulty, everything...mainly because it keeps all (correction...MOST) of the dumbasses out of the woods. In my opinion, gun season and blaze orange can both SUCK IT! I'll take bow season ANY DAY!

Shotgun season in Iowa reminds me of my time overseas, I do my best to just stay out (even our private land), I tend to get worked up hearing the semi-automatic fire.
