    Default Hunter Harrassment

    I always thought it was illegal to interfere with legal hunting. I was harassed by a pack of hooligans multiple times today. Driving in the gate the met us, stood in front of us, and generally got in the way. When we tried to set up the decoys, not only did they get in the way, it took two of us - one to keep them from stepping on the shotguns (they would have crushed the barrels or broken the stocks, and the other to whack them with the decoy bag to get enough room to toss in the decoys. Later, they came over, kicking over the goose decoys while spinning others with their noses. It was very distressing! I should have called the game warden. resize 034.jpg

    That last photo, those darn horses were spinning the decoys with the noses, having a great time. They are huge! I walked under the largest's chin multiple times, and his shoulder was over my 5'7" head.

    And they aren't gunshy. If they would just retrieve.....my poor little dog didn't know what to think of these monsters, and he's used to normal sized horses.

    Good Stuff! It reminds me of a hunt a buddy and I did a few years ago where he parked along side the fence of the farmers cow pasture and all the cows came to investigate his pick up truck and in doing so slimed the entire side of his truck windows

    They are some of the friendliest, most curious animals there are. Many years ago I was excavating a site in a Colorado field (I'm an archaeologist) with 4 draft horses. Every morning and afternoon about coffee time we'd get a visit from the 4. I'd be shaking my screen and suddenly have a 4 ft long horse head hanging over my shoulder with his nose in the screen. A lot like these guys yesterday. But oh, my goodness, they can be a pain. They are so curious, and it takes some pushing to get them out of the way! Wish I'd have my video - you should have seen the youngster's spinning those goose decoys
