Everyone's jumped on wrong side of the fence every now and then Jesus ! If they have left deer yea that's wrong but other wise early bird gets the worm !


I know what you're saying bud, I do as I chose to do, but you can't really defend the indefensible is my point. Just cause you know it's wrong or maybe only a little bit wrong doesn't mean you can justify it, you have to just accept that your a wronguns mate haha.

NOTHING will ever stop keen hunting men from freelancing.... :no: 

Lads have been taking illicit game since early times,..those who seek to protect their interests, have tried many dark and devious ways to stop poachers...

The facts are, imprisonment,..dismemberment (man traps, etc ) and even sending them on an impromptu sea voyage, to Botany Bay, has never curtailed them. :laugh:  

 

A few years ago I took on the rabbiting across a nice piece of ground...I also had carte blanche to shoot whatever I wanted.

I was also given, free reign to set my traps, nets, snares, and run anything I wanted to with my dogs.... It was good....Happy Days.... :boogy: 

For a while, I became extremely possessive of my good fortune,...I was staying up half the night, waiting for trespassers.

I was so jealous of seeing others working the place and scared that someone, out there, would steal my game...

I was getting obsessional...and it took my Wife to convince me, that I was turning a wee bit nutty, over something that in reality, was not really mine in the first place. :blink: 

In short, my desire to keep all my toys from, all the other kids,..was ruining my passion for the hunt... :yes:  

 

It took me a while to realize, that today,...it really is, 'a dog eat dog world'... :thumbs:

I dont get all this go anywhere no permission malarky ive worked hard to get what little perm ive got & i concider it a privilege not a god given right to go on the land ive got. Ive lost two local farms in recent years coz mindless fekwits have ruined it driving all over it leaving gates open etc. One of them now regularly shoot the hares to keep the coursers off but as a result both farmers have said NO DOGS on their land!! Ive not been back on either farm with the dogs as a respect to the time when i was allowed on it. I wouldnt want any f****r on my property with out permission. Atb

One or two of my permissions have been regular spots hit by freelancers and still are to this day.

 

I don't care too much and understand it's not my business to get involved in what other people do.it's all part and parcel of the game.

 

The only thing that would bother me was If I bumped into a mate or someone who I had invited to accompany me on a previous occasion. . . going behind my back etc. I'm not a violent man, but anger does strange things to certain people.I black out and remember nothing, unfortunately.

Think phils got it spot on youll never stop places getting hit hard in certain areas no matter what you do.

And i think these crackdowns by police make it worse it gives way to more recklessness/stupidity.

[quote name="Joe777" post="4532544" timestamp="1505990073"]Who wouldn't protect what's theirs?
As for poaching with dogs to feed yourself, wrong era no? Foods never been cheaper.
None of you robin hood's would chance poaching in Texas. I'd say anyone with the inclination could become part of a shooting/hunting community and gain access to work your dogs whist not thieving/trespassing , intimidating residents/farmers, worrying livestock/Gamebirds? Even if you're a sensible one man and dog on foot, would you really condone it on a public forum, and stand shoulder to shoulder with the wronguns?[/quote here we go there's one a those with that we are who we are.atb bunnys.

I believe arctics right I think in reality he should have offered nights out to those willing to travel ,make peace and and fellow friends soon sort that stretch out however I have just give the past code area to fellow family travelling slowly to the venue they love a night out but make use of all I can guarantee nothing will be left to spoil atb bunnys.

Nothing I hate more than roadside fox shooters that leave dead foxes lying where they fell. Does it happen on my perm, yip, would I ever consider ringing the police and giving reg numbers, not a f***ing chance..
