    wouldn't the world be a better place if we all hunted ducks?

    Hah! That's laughable after the season we had here. Every area we hunted that was on crown land we had guys come in after and plant their butts none too far away. One lad was actually brave or dumb enough to sneak in through the cat tails opening morning and plant himself 30 yards from my decoys.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    As another stated down here it gets a lot more congested than that. Keep in mind you're both there for the same reason, with the same interests in mind.

    Last week there were 5 guys hunting 50 acres for the controlled hunt, not ideal, but you have to make due. Respect each others space, and be willing to help each other out.

    I think 250 to 300 yards is more than enough space. I would hunt with the idea in mind that the other hunter is always there, for safety sake. I do wonder how a hunter could think 250 yards was 75 though.

    Most hunters are terrible judges of distance through the woods. It would seem that there's a pile of standing lumber between one hunter and another @ 300M. The hell of it is that at that distance,one hunter is out of sight of the other........until someone fires a shot. It seems then,that every tree in the woods open up and a bullet goes whistling over someone's stand.
    Socialism has an entrance and an exit. Vote your way in and shoot your way out.

    I think they are bow hunting, so 300 yds is workable. I’d be watching wind direction a bit closer.
