Well, calm down, it's over. The anger you are feeling is mostly likely a sense of betrayal by someone you trusted.
When you have stopped boiling about it, simmer down and drop him a note or email saying he stepped on your trust as a friend.
If you choose, add that you think differently about him, and will need some time--maybe a lot of time--before you have
much more to do with him.
Wish him well and good health.
Then drop it.
(anger is a corrosive, don't let it eat at you.)
This is why I'm VERY careful about who I bring with when I'm hunting. Not just for pheasants, but also for spring turkeys. Many of these landowners are so nice and generous, I honestly think they would grant permission to just about anyone that asked. I've put in a lot of time over a long span of 20+ years to develop an area of private land I have permission to hunt every year and I'm not about to have it known by anyone other than a close friend or direct family member. Its like disclosing where you just caught a limit of keeper walleyes or slab crappies. Better off just not telling anyone where you caught them otherwise there will be 40 people out there in 2 days.Twice I've had guys go get permission after I took them there.

Yes he knows the rules. Landowner only allows other hunters if they are with me and he knew that and he knew I did not allow pheasant huntingInitially, reading the OG post I felt a sense of betrayal on the author’s part. If I show a buddy even a public hunting/fishing spot and I catch him going w/o me he isn’t no friend of mine no more. After reading the post again I wonder if the scouter knew the whole no hunting situation or not?
Have you addressed this with him yet?Yes he knows the rules. Landowner only allows other hunters if they are with me and he knew that and he knew I did not allow pheasant hunting
Aside from the heated conservation initially I have had very limited contact and no hunting with him and given a cold shoulder when he callsHave you addressed this with him yet?
