I was coming back from trying to cross a swamp that I decided was too wet and met a guy on the main trail, that was headed into his hunting spot and I pulled over to let him pass. He stops to talked, he tells me where he is hunting (miles from trail head), method of hunting, the 47 inch bull he called in two days ago, the 57 inch bull he shot last year and all the moose a friend with a plane sees when he fly’s over.
After he tells me everything, I could not stand it and said, “Why are you telling me all this? You have no idea who I am. I could be some guy who tells everything on a hunting forum or at work and you going to find your area over run with hunters. Nice guy “I thought you were a local” RM “Why would tell a local? We went back and forth several times; I do not believe I got my message across to him. I hope I did because if not he can kiss his area, good buy.
I have seen this several times in the passed, most people do not give as much details. My question to all of you; Why, do you tell co-workers, and strangers where you hunt?
