Things change everyday.
Im under 40 and have lost several hunting spots in Boone county alone due to subdivisions and development.Wow. I'd find it hard to believe anyone over 50 hasn't lost a dozen or more spots to subdivisions already, be it duck, rabbit, or deer hunting.
I am not for having golfballs, bullets, or birdshot landing in my yard... i could give a rats ass about my woods. If i had livestock in jeopardy i would have a problem with that part of my property too. I would normally argue birdshot is harmless but (given the property is uphill from the hunters) i wont in this case.Yep, I've lost em all. And was shot at a few times defending them. But it never occurred to me to get on the internet or a radio show to complain about it. Nor did I ever even consider that my desire to shoot ducks trumped their property rights, like Fowler seems to imply. And I guess that's what bugs me about all this. The OP and the guy on the radio want you to think they are champions for the officer in question. Not really, they just wanted to bitch about losing their spot. It showed through like the transparent attempt it was.
If you really wanted to scoop the department for their treatment of the officer, you could have skipped all the stuff about your right to shoot into someone elses property and just narc'd on the department for their treatment of the officer.
I have 100% confidence that if the officer was wronged, he will be made whole and then some. And it wont be because the OP and Bacon added his plight to theirs.
Bacon said he hunts this spot every chance he gets. Radio guy said he lost his spot. I guess somebody is confused.
...and here we are a day later, and what about shooting into someone else's property?
I thought so.
Now I understand what Lone Waitie meant. " Endeavor To Persevere"
Just as the Indians, we will slowly be pushed to WMA's until a politician feels the need to build on it.
Some will resist but progress can not be stopped.
I just heard that the repercussions of this cover up are beginning to roost.Hello all,
I decided it was time to let you all know about something that happened to a friend of mine last duck season. I believe everything I'm saying is the truth, and all facts can be checked by going to fish and wildlife in Frankfort and doing an open records request.
Some friends were duck hunting on elkhorn Creek in Franklin county when a landowner told them he didn't want them hunting there (a Franklin county judge ruled that if you have legal access to launch a boat then you can access all the creek that you can get to by boat). This landowner came back later and said they couldn't hunt there because it was baited. My friends called the local game warden who came out and looked at everything. He did find bait...well turns out the landowner is a commission member. I thought the commission wanted us to have every hunting opportunity? Well I know the officer started an investigation and I am pretty sure the feds got invovled... But it would appear someone squashed everything at some point. How is this right? How can KDFWR get away with this? File an open records request and you will see exactly who was involved.
