So my neighbor out here in 16b ask me why I'm wearing an orange Texas Long horn hat the other day and I told him #1 because my Grand daughter gave it to me, and #2 because there were to many yahoo's shooting up the place this hunting season and I would hope they would see me. He told me I might get shot just because I was wearing a Texas Longhorn hat. I told him I might go visit town for a while because it might be safer during hunting season. All joking aside there are safe hunters and there are unsafe hunter. THINK! So far this season one neighbor has had bullets buzzing over head from someone on a gut pile just shooting into the air because he heard something and thought he would flush out a bear because he couldn't see the gut pile. It was my neighbor not a bear. The other day by Five fingers there was father and son target practicing on the gravel bar of the river. There was no backstop and they were shooting directly at the draw where boat travel comes to and from Alexander Creek. Let's not mention the many aircraft in the air at all times spotting moose. The place is buzz with hunters and I have nothing against that. This is just a reminder folks to use safe hunting practices and to be more aware of your surroundings. And last but not least, to the person or persons who left the illegal bull to rot on the shoreline of the Big Su near Five Fingers...... WHY?
