Title: Land
Post by: Ks_Sniper on January 15, 2005, 10:22:08 PM
Well, I went out today looking for a piece of land closer to my home than the places I hunt and came upon 140 acres of land to hunt. The only problem is that the owner is trying very hard to sell the land and hopes to have it sold in the next few weeks. Well, at least I'll have SOME time to bust some tree rats and bunnies. Who knows, if he keeps the land after all, I'll get to keep hunting, or maybe the new owner will let me continue to hunt the land. I'm gonna try things out on Monday.   :D

Pretty cool!  It's really hard to get permission to hunt around here anymore.  With KY becoming known as a "big buck" state, you just about either have to own land or lease to have a decent place to hunt.

I hear that. With all the corn grown around here, you practically have to sign over your soul to get permission to hunt the farmers land. I did find that I had better luck when I told the land owner I was just looking to hunt small game for now. After our relationship has solidified, and if he keeps the land, then when turkey season pops up, I hope to get permission to hunt them as well.

It's getting harder to find hunting places and hard to hang on to them because of the selling of our hunting places to non hunters and just plain unfriendly attitudes towards hunters. I have lost a couple of good hunting places due to no fault of hunters. When I was raising cattle I was visiting my partner at his farm. A really nice fella with a bird dog stopped by and asked him if he could hunt some pheasants along his hedge row. My partner was really rude to the guy, and the hunter left. I jumped my partner's case and told him he had absolutely no reason to be rude to the hunter. He could have politely refused to allow the hunter permission to hunt, and given him a reason he didn't want anyone to hunt his property. There was no reason why he didn't give permission, because there were no nearby houses or livestock within gun range. He was not the fellow I had figured when I went into partnership with. I was hauling grain for him and happened onto a serious accident that had just happened. It was dark, and I stopped and rendered assistance to one of the accident victims that was lying in the middle of the highway. The weather was cold enough for a winter coat. The injured fellow was not wearing a coat, and could not move. His car was cut in half, gone from the firewall and foreward.  I covered him with my coat and flagged the next car, sending them to get help. I was pretty busy trying to comfort the injured driver and flagging cars down so they would not run over the fella, or run into the wreckage. The accident had happened in a dip between two hills and hard to see after popping over the hill crests. It was a two lane highway, and not very wide. When I finally got the highway patrol there and the ambulance, and answered the cop's questions, I returned to my partner's farm. He was angry because I didn't skip the accident scene and load another load of grain to go to the elevator the next morning. That partnership didn't last much longer. Another member of our forum here, henry, knows the fella very well. Yep, it is ol' DeWayne B. By the way, ol' henry is a favorite brother in law of mine, my wife's brother.
