The walks a good 700 to 800 yards through mud Your frickin spent when you get there, that made the decision of leaving the deeks out a no brainer. I figured I'll even leave flippy, someone sees that they will know I'm coming back for sure.
This is the attitude I'm opposed to. It's easier to leave them out. I won't have to do the work to pick them up. I won't have to do the work to bring them back out. I won't have to compete for the blind in the morning
Laziness and arrogance (I wish I had better, less-offensive words, sorry Crims).
I'm never a late starter but that morning I showed up about 45 min before shoot time. I make the trudge and as I can start to see the blind I see some one about 50 yards from it. I think to myself great go figure
They wernt moving, I don't get into pissing matches with guns in peoples hands. Not a real fricking smart Idea IMO I will say this when I asked for my decoy bag that was in the blind one of em had the balls to ask, your not going to take your deeks are you? What a piece of work.
I left and hunted somewhere else got a full strap.
Now I could have got there about a half hr earlier and avoided this . Point taken.
As I said before, these guys were pretty douchey. Nice job on adjusting though, and well played on your part...
The deeks were not left there to corner it for 5 or 6 days.
I see most people here would not set up in someone else's blind if they left there sheet out Its called common courtesy
Are some people that hard up for a spot that they say f u to another hunter. You would be surprised how many people that wont do the work for them selves but want to benefit from others. Yes it's public and any body can hunt it Funny how no one wanted to hunt there before till someone put a blind there The way I see it if you need to get there first I was there a day ahead of them.
Whether it's two days, five days, or a whole season, the principle is the same - laying claim to public ground while you're not there.
I've already stated that I'm no defending the actions of others. I'm only fighting the principle that some believe they have superior rights to public ground than others (general description).
The first-come, first-served principle would apply...if you stayed there. It can't logically apply if you leave. Otherwise tons of people would have those claims to the same spot because they had been there once before.
PS Is the Salton Sea considered a wildlife area, refuge, etc.?
I get high off cattails and gunpowder. What's your addiction?
