    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was pretty sure it's a bunch of crap but I was hoping of finding some way of calling them on it. We rarely shoot at dusk and rarely shoot anything more than .22lr so I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. At this point I think I'll just tell em they can call the Sheriff or Warden if they really want to and let them settle it.

    I almost had an “incident” last year during ML season. A guy I kind of know that hunts on a place 3/4 mile east of my place called and wanted to know if I was up hunting. I said yes. He proceeded to tell me he heard a shot the evening before from the direction of my place and called the game warden. I had actually shot a coyote that was trailing a doe in to the feeder. He said he would call the GW back and let him know it was a false alarm. While I appreciate the guy “looking out” for my place, calling the game warden just because you hear a shot on someone else’s property ain’t cool.

    Shooting/target practicing during deer season is kind of like my neighbors setting up stands along my fences. It’s not the neighborly thing to do (and even a little chicken ****), but what they do on their property is really none of my dang business.:anyone:

    If a person shoots regularly year round. Shooting during dear season shouldn't affect said deer anymore than any other time during the year.

    My neighbor sends me a text every time he hears a gunshot during MZ or Rifle season wanting to know if it's me. We do have a poaching road hunter issue so I'm not offended. We have caught some road hunters by following up on gunshots. I'll be suppressed this year though so he won't be hearing me.

    Exactly. One of my spots has a johnny popper pump jack on it with some across the river. Deer don't mind the shot if you drop the animal right down. If they bolt and die a short time later the rest of the deer will bolt as well, but usually don't go far. I shoot all the time here at the house into the berm. We have deer in and out of the yard daily. They get used to it.

    The guy that called knows I’m an absentee owner, and if the guy had sent me a text to say he heard a shot, that would’ve been great. He didn’t. He immediately called the game warden. That ain’t cool with me. Had the GW showed up to grill me on my own place for no reason (except hearsay which is apparently better than direct evidence according to the congressional democrats) probably wouldn’t have ended well for me...:blush:

    Shoot pretty much every weekend, unless the weather just won't permit.. No issues here..

    Our deer come watch to see if they have anything to worry about, I heard one snickering last weekend..
