I just felt hesitant about it.
My thought is that a hunter who's nervous or queasy about a shot shouldn't take it. This is telling you something's not safe, ethical, or whatever.

You did right.

For humor, in one certain location, I have seen libtards from Indiana University hiking 3 miles to my hunting spot on opening day of gun season. Same area another year the Boy Scouts are camping 2 miles from the parking lot on opening day and hiking everywhere. That place sucked no matter how far I would walk.

Seriously, with satellite and topographic maps available I will study an area and find places most lazy hunters will not hike to. That can be 200 yards or 4 miles from the starting point. There will be somewhere off the beaten path for me to hunt.

good idea.

but he won't get 2 miles away if he's wearing an ankle bracelet.

I am the op and wanted to thank everyone for the comments. I am catching up on them. To answer one post as to size and what is relative. The area that I was hunting is not large a all when it comes to land space. I don't know the acreage right off the top of my head but it's like he was saying the area can only handle about 8 hunters tops. If I see vehicles parked in one of the four or five spaces to park I don't bother going in but I know where exactly to go if there is a vehicle already there... Anyway thanks for the replies and the discussion...
