Should I have called the cops?
OK, this morning I was out squirrel hunting. I was hunting on federal land, managed by the Army Corp of Engineers and is hunting by permit only. The land covers about 60,000 acres of woods that border the Mississippi river. There are some gravel access roads to the levee's the ACOE use. As well as some power line roads in the woods.
Anyway I am walking back to my truck this morning and I see this guy walking up a trail not really dressed for hunting and not carrying a rifle, shotgun or bow. I'm on the edge of the woods and the guy doesn't see me. I watch the guy walk up the gravel access road and off into the woods. I thought that was strange but really didn't have any reason to investigate any further. I continue the walk back to my truck, at this point I am about a mile and a half away.
I get back to my truck, unload my shotgun and start the engine. This is when I look in my rear view mirror and see a car coming up the gravel access road. It's a brown Ford Crown Victoria with no license plates, with the guy I had seen prior in the woods behind the wheel. He wasn't going anywhere because the access roads have locked steel gates at all of the entrances and exits and he was on the wrong side without a key.
At this point I was ready to go and I drove away. As I watched in my rear view mirror it appeared he was turning around and heading back into the woods.
So, should I have alerted the police to his presence?
