It's here again and I'm stuck at home. Yesterday afternoon around 4 I took my family down to a new forest service pond down the road in the ranger. We were wearing our orange, the pond is RIGHT by the road. Most city people are home by Sunday afternoon anyways. We went there to look for bear tracks, I've seen lots of big ones and my Papa is an avid hunter and tracker (me too) and since bear season is over we were looking for traces of the BIG ONE hoping he had made it.
We get there, and start looking around when a man bust through the woods obviously ticked that we were there. It's youth hunt but he had a pretty nice riffle in his hands. He angrily pointed out that he was hunting there, screaming at us for disturbing "his" plot. He asked me "YOU KNOW it's hunting season, RIGHT?"
Weeeelllll my BA side reached out and took over. I looked him straight in the eyes and gave him my sternest "YEP!". He stormed off and we kept looking. This guy was wayyyyy too close to the road! And sorry DUDE but it's forest service, free access to EVERYONE ANYTIME. Not like he had a truck parked there either so we knew he was there. Ugh. IF you don't want to be disturbed hike your happy fat tail OFF the beaten path. Some people.
Be safe guys!
