Those deer hunters usually are a little drunk to start out with and carrying weapons and then you go and tick them off by riding past their hunting grounds....but I carry a knife on the trail and try to stay off private property unless I've been given permission. Luckily I live in such a small town though most of the people are nice and just stop and talk to us.
You said it was out of season so that man was not a hunter he was a poacher you should have called the police/wild life agency and reported him
Someone else posted that you and your horse should wear blaze orange to make you stand out.
