Frustrated

1 post in this topic

What do you have to do,

I had some land promised to me by a family friend not only this year, but prior years and years to come. For me only.

Not like this was his big track of land, I took some of his borderline not-so-good and a very small trek probably at most 5-6 acres and when I went down there today to do some final trail checking and last check on stands I hung over a month ago.

I go to find several stands, some within 50 yards of some of my sets. A truck (I talked to the drivers) sitting in a connecting driveway who now have permission that are also hunting in the area.

I think the land owner is old school who is like my Dad(who I miss greatly) that will not tell anyone "no".

I have actually seen less hunters on the public hunting land that I go to ocassionally that I am encountering on private land, I know the land owner can do whatever he wants, but man am I frustrated. Any adice how to deal with this?

Should I let this go and move or talk to the landowner and see what is going on?

This just sucks, I have been working this area for myself for a while thinking I am the only one hunting this piece and finding out what I did.

Do I go into the land and pull my stands and go elsewhere?

Sorry to vent, but the season is close and this really "balls up the situation"

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
