Looks like they’re saddle hunters too? That sucks. Is there two of them up in that tree on the same level lol?You know that feeling when you hike waaaay back in & get setup in a thick spot. You know your early, you know you beat them back to bed & then flashlights........ I shined them off yet they still proceeded to setup 90yds from me . Not how you want to start off the new year!

I just got down & posted when I got to the top of the hill for some signal. I’m gonna scout & come back this evening. I talked to them they were a couple of young guys & had they’re sticks already set, thought they were further away..... all good I wish I would’ve shot a slob in the bedding right below me to prove a point. But maybe that only reinforces bad behavior.....Looks like they’re saddle hunters too? That sucks. Is there two of them up in that tree on the same level lol?
The joys of public land, I really enjoy big acreage to stretch my legs & find sign. Sometimes it just seems like you can’t get away from folks.....I watched a 100” 8 point feed around me for an hour but only came to 56 yards this season, I had a guy walk in and ignore my attempts to flash my light and push him away. Well he either shot at the 8 I was watching in the bedding area or another but he shot shortly after I lost the buck heading somewhat in that direction. Wish I would have went over and asked talked to him just to see if he got him or what happened but I was quite upset bc I’ve been waiting to hunt that specific deer since last year and have patterned him since late Jan up to the season.
Tell me about it about man, doesn’t happens until you find a spot and think it’s THE spot too lol in Louisiana they have old timber roads everywhere in most areas, it’s real fun walking a mile or 2 out of the way just to sneak in and back door a spot so you don’t bump deer to just have some goon roll up on an atv at daybreak but it’s all part of the challenge that makes public fun and rewarding.The joys of public land, I really enjoy big acreage to stretch my legs & find sign.

Yeah that’s me, I see you........ seriously thoughSame thing literally just happened to me. Dude walked in and set his hang on 91 yards away. At least it gave me a chance to try out my rangefinder lol. Thankfully he's facing away from me but still... I ain't moving.
Lol nice one. Seen 3 doe run by at 125 yards,b second hunter walk by about 75 yards the other way and original neighbor just packed up his climber ( wrong term first post) and left. Seeing plenty of squirrels lol.
Sucks! But better than not seeing anything & wondering why........... you still got time for plan BUpdate: saw a small doe run across field... it was weird? Thirty minutes later here comes a surveyor covered in yellow paint. Walks right by me. We talk for a bit. He apologizes, i say “hey its public land.” At that point i wasnt too upset. Since he walked all over where the deer where coming from. I get down and start to get my cameras.... thats where the story gets sad..... the place is loaded... loaded with deer sign, like i have never seen it. I can see running tracks and yellow marked trees. He pushed the whole place. Its a 20 acre woodlot surrounded by cow fields. Looking for an afternoon spot.
