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?
