Went out to Pt. Mac yesterday with some friends. All we got was wet, but we had a fun time anyway.
Either there are not many birds out where we were or they were hunkered down to keep out of the rain and wind. We only saw 2 and they flushed into some really thick stuff so we opted to let them be. We did find a potential new bunny hunting spot for this winter.
One of our friends had an interesting encounter though. He came out late and pulled of to the side of the road till he could figure out where we were. Once we made contact (about an hour later) he started to drive off when some lady pulled in front of him and literally cut him off and stopped in the middle of the road like she was a cop or something. He nearly hit her car (with her three kids in the back seat) and she got out and started to give him the what for for parking next to private property. He was in a pull off and not on anyone's land. He tried to tell her that he was going to meet up with some friends who were hunting and all that did was set her off even more. Guess she thought we were hunting on the private land by where he was parked (which was not hers) and started to lay into him about how there were 500 parcels of private land and he could not hunt there, blah, blah, blah.... He laughed at her for her ranting over his parking habits and drove off. We were walking trails on public land some two miles away at the time.
He had seen this woman driving in and out of her driveway from the farm across the road from where he was parked a few times while he was there. Curious why she waited till he started to drive off before she decided to talk to him. Guess she liked to play cop chase with a car full of kids or something. I know the locals get a bit weary of folks roaming on their property, but to try and get after a guy for parking in a pull out is a bit much.
