So I will start with yesterday (Opening day) I got to my stand and got in (I blew out my knee a week or 2 ago so I had to use the 4-wheeler) And I had 2 young does start across and saw the 4-wheeler and booked so I was not in a good mood even though I would not have shot them (Too small) this told me the day was not going to be good.
As some of you already know I have problems with the hunting camp that leese the land below me well yester day 2 of them came by and stopped as I was trying to see what they wanted a deer came in from the new land next to me (I say new because I am in the middle of buying all 15 acres) The buck saw them and booked he was not close enough to see his size or how many points he was so anyway these jerks yelled "I hope you don't see anything" and shot off there guns which blew out my afternoon hunting.
Now onto today.
I woke up at 4:30 herd the wind and saw it was snowing so I turned off the 5am alarm but could not get back to sleep.
So I got up not expecting to go out due to the forecast of steady winds with gusts up to 30mph and heavy snow squaws.
Then the next thing I know I was getting dressed to go out. I told my wife that I was going anyway even if the temp was 12 degrees with wind chills in the single digits to below 0.
I got to my stand (I walked this time) at 7:30am 2 hours later then normal At 8:30 the snow was coming down so hard I could not even see my 10 yard mark. I had to close all the windows and watch thru the plexeglass windows then it stopped around 10 and It was COLD AS HECK but decided to stay till noon. The sky turned blue I opened the windows.
Now that buck I saw yesterday came around 10:30- 11:00 and at 10:39 he came back but did not want to come out into the open so I grunted and he turned and came close enough for me to see he was a 8 point so I grunted again and he walked in behind some ground cover so I took a high lung shot knowing with my .50 he would not go far. He went 10 yards and rolled.
I got fresh meat mmmmmmmm.
As I was field dressing him the same 2 4-wheelers came by and stopped (I know they herd my shot) And I yelled down "Yea thats right I got a huge buck and you got wet and cold have a great day" They yelled some stuff and took off.
I think that felt as good as shooting the buck did.
Here are some pictures.

Congratulations on the buck. Looks great, and should go a long way to filling your freezer.

That’s awesome! If those guys really did what you say, you should call the game warden for harassment. That’s ridiculous.
They did do what I said they did.
You are new here (Fairly) so you have not read all the posts about these guys. I have had them busted for trespassing every year. Last year there was 3 tickets given to them. Calling the warden for words and shots while they are on there own property would be a PIA on the warden not them.
I have to be careful or I could end up getting my stand cut down.

Why are they like that? What is their problem with you?

Nice bucks my and Mrs shawlerbrook. I heard the wind howling this morning called my hunting buddy and we both decided not to go out. I don't have a nice compy stand to sit in like you mike. Ladder stands at 30mph cold winds make me want to stay in bed. I know i'm a wass. :(

They are all from NYcity (Long Island)and have given grief to all the surrounding land owners. I was the first to show them that trespass on my land will not be excepted. They never have shown ANY respect to land and people they feel that they will just go back to the city and not worry about it.
