I was painted in blood from a guy shooting a two point in a three point or better area.  The funny thing was, he shot the smaller two point.  The deer literally died at my feet, as in touched me.  I was so mad I had to walk away or risk killing the man.  Two other guys who witnessed it turned him in for the two point violation, and the warden nailed him.

Standby....

15 minute cool off in place. Bickering about terms and derailing threads is exactly what we are doing our best to get away from. Thread cleaned up and I'll unlock in a bit.

Annnnnnnd go. Please stay on topic as well as civil.

Reading some of this stuff, man. This is the kind of stuff people should lose their hunting licenses over.
Lots of those older guys never took hunter's ed.  And seems lots of the kids with them would rather hunt like uncle and pops and disregard everything from hunter's ed.

I don't think hunter's ed has much to do with the problem. You either can respect the rules, laws and common sense or you should never be within a thousand feet of a firearm. I call them "Slob Hunters". No respect for gun safety and no respect for the hunting laws and you certainly don't want to camp next to them. I am no youngster and have seen this "genre of so-called hunters" throughout my lifetime.

Nothing could be worse for the future of hunting than some of its slob representatives.

I gave up rifle hunting years ago after constant issues and people being upset about "their spot." I've been archery deer since then until this year.
Mostly on a whim I felt like rifle deer hunting in a new area so headed to Rimrock/ Bethel tomorrow with the dualsport. Not sure what to expect, but this thread does not give me great hopes.

 :yeah: I took hunter safety about 20 years ago. I don't remember one single thing taught there. people are just stupid. I find myself going to not the best hunting areas just to escape the crowds.

It really is a respect issue. 

These are the same people not spending time at the range to make sure they are making good shots on animals. 

People who zero to 50 yards, but take a 400 yard shot "just to see if I could kill a deer from 400 yards" not even considering that they may just wound the animal.

People who take shots in the general direction of others, of vehicles, of residences, etc.

People whose actions are generally referenced by the anti-hunters because nobody, not even the real hunters appreciate what they do.

There is no age limit for these folks; they exist in every generation in every demographic.

I have been scoped a bunch always makes me mad.  Worst was I came around a bend and there was a herd of deer with a small spike (3 point area) and all of a,sudden a guy comes from the other direction he instantly raises his rifle I actually hollered hey its a spike dude. I will say my life flashed he totally did not see me there at all all he saw was deer.

All the orange in the world can't save you when people refuse to identify things before putting their gun up.

And not hunting related I grew up surrounded by guns and was terrified by what I saw.  I was very anti gun when I joined here in 2008. Saw no reason for anyone to own semi auto pistols or little black guns. I have owned and enjoyed building both since then.

Thanks huntwa guys alive and no longer with us for not scaring me and berating me for my fears.

I was a couple hundred feet from you when this happened, I remember it well.

During a youth day hunt, my cousin negligently shot off her gun  loading it (lever action 30-30) into the side of my uncles jeep(noone was hurt). They should have gave her more classes on gun safety and watched her more closely like my dad did with me. (we were like 10). I'm glad I haven't experienced anything like the other hunters on here, I don't think id be able to walk away with just words exchanged.

Today I went to check out a clear cut looking for blacktail and on my way in I heard shots ring off about 200 yards away. The person was using a rock face for a backstop and I heard a few ricochets and one bullet zipped by me about 75 yards away and smacked a tree. I may be done with modern from now on and just go strictly archery next season.
