Nice! Pretty cool they want to have their meeting at your place! I'd welcome them into mine! Always good to be friends with your local warden.

No one came on that property. Everyone was scared they would get caught. And prosecuted. And they would be. We've seen more bucks and does this year than in 15 years. It's been great!


More than likely, the people who were askin were the ones who were blastin haha. Glad y'all got it cleaned up

So why did he come out with a crossbow and send his buddy thru the woods to meet him? And Oh yea, where did the rifle disappear too? No lic. No orange, I'm sure it was all just a misunderstanding and there is no way he would have shot across the fence at a ten point buck...SMH

I see the point you are trying to make but it is a stretch IMO

So if he was legal (orange and licence) he could of got you for harassment?

We were parked behind him, waiting for him to come out, so they swapped weapons and the buddy was running out of the woods further down the road. My neighbor ended up talking to him. He said the guy came out on his driveway in camo and no weapon and was asking if he had seen a green truck. Neighbor told him he left and they guy got ****** and started cussing.
The hunter walked up to the fence with a chair and sat down with his back to the forest and sat his rifle in his lap. He was facing right towards me and would have shot right past/under me if a deer would have come by. Any of you would have been furious! He was totally hunting my property.

You have to wear hunter Orange when hunting in the national forest.

Also, his buddy was a felon and couldn't have a gun which is why he walked out with nothing. The game warden had already arrested him before and knew him well.

You are required to wear "Hunters Orange" vest and hat (at least 144 sq in) when hunting national forest land.

To the fella that loves Texas Women because you can call them and they'll bring your gun, I moved back to Missouri for medical reasons and you are CORRECT ABOUT TEXAS GALS. in Missouri if you called your wife and told her to bring your gun, she'd call Hillary and tell her that's another reason for gun control.

Where the hell do you live because Missouri is full of hunters. My girlfriends Grandpa planted food plots so he could watch deer from his porch. Never seen anything like that before. Deer feeding like squirrels.

One other thing is - we have the county sheriff's number and game warden's number programed in our phone. Everyone has instructions to call them first before they call me.

It seems that the poacher came out of the national forest land and sat down at the fence line with his gun and was looking (facing) into the gentleman's property. The poacher was on the other side of the fence BUT was watching into his property. To me, that's ILLEGAL!

He's not down. He won't pay the fines. He will be poaching again when ever he feels like it.

He sat right in front of me hunting the area I was sitting over. I was so freakin mad I could spit fire. I started texting the neighbor trying to get the number for the game warden, and after about 20 minutes he finally spotted me in the tree. As soon as he saw me I yelled at him, and he stood up and walked into the woods. I called my wife and told her to meet me at the road with my gun and my truck, and then climbed down and walked out. By the time I reached the road I had reached the local game warden and he was in route. My neighbor met me at the national forest parking area and we sat and waited for the hunter to exit. When he walked out he was carrying a crossbow and my wife said "I thought you said he had a rifle!". I said he did! I looked at it for 20 minutes! He started getting in his truck and I told his sorry you know what to just wait around because the game warden was on his way. He said yeah ok and drove away. Long story short, he was pulled over down the road and brought back by the warden. We found out he had a buddy in the woods with him. They swapped weapons so he could walk out with a crossbow, and he was going to meet down the road and pick the buddy up with his gun. The buddy walked out on the neighbors driveway and got all ****** when he found out his buddy had left him. Anyways, we never found the rifle but he got a slew of tickets. Hunting without a license, no hunter orange, no ID and no insurance. This guy lied his rear off to the game warden. Told him he didn't have a cell phone (but his wife showed up 30 mins later somehow!), said he wasn't hunting but was scouting, said he had a weapon in case he saw hogs, said he had never been there before..blah blah blah! I wanted to punch him in his lying face!
Well, it wasn't all bad! I got to meet the game warden and gave him a tour of the property. He asked if they could have their next warden meeting at our place in a few weeks too! Will be a great opportunity to meet and get to know them all!
Been there. Too close to society it just too close. Move on.....
