I don't hunt but if I did, I would bring a recliner and a heated blanket and a loooooong extension cord. Maybe a space heater pointed at me. Would that be too much? I don't like being cold.

Drunk hunters, I have been shot at by drunks hunting that thought I was a deer. Sound shooters! Recipe for disaster.

When someone says to pick them up at a certain time to go afield and their not ready.

Pheasant "hunting" on a private game ranch where they plant the birds and know just where to kick them up. To me it's just "killing" not "hunting."

Shoot back. At that point it's armed combat. Especially if your on your own land (several in my family have been through this, most of them are combat vets too)

Seen it done, 3 different occasions, they weren't even charged, didn't have to go to court. I haven't done it myself, I haven't been in that situation. Simply put, if some one trespasses on your property and then takes a shot at you, in the town where I grew up, they're fair game.

It would not have been so bad but I was 15 feet in a tree and in full hunter orange. Let's just say one had to walk back to town because it was difficult to start his truck with a hole in the engine. I don't take kindly to being shot at! Amazing what a 303 Enfield round will do.

My biggest pet peeve by far:

I plan a hunt weeks in advance. I buy Beer, food, Beer, hunting license, gas, beer, ammo, batteries, beer, ice...Oh and beer.

I get up 30 minutes before the butt-crack of dawn ever thinks of getting up, brew my coffee, put it in a Thurmos, get all bundled up and hike to the stand.

I do all that work and the damn deer doesn't even to have the common courtesy to send me a text saying he can't make it.

I have seen most of my nitpicks listed here already, but here are a couple more.
Hunters who will stand and loudly argue with non hunters in public. Okay, they don't agree with your veiw. Wish them a nice day (while subconsiouly wishing on them a plague of fleas in both amrpits!), and walk away. Show the others who really is the bigger man.

Hunters who enter a store while wearing blood soaked camo, reeking of deer urine, and buzzed, to buy more beer. Atleast do the other customers, hunters and non hunters alike, the courtesy of changeing your clotes and taking a shower first. Way to present a positve image. Not! Like we don't already have enough of a negative image in the liberal heavy public thanks to movies like Open Season an Bambi!
Please try and remember this, we are all representitves of the outdoor sports. Try to act accordingly. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Make it count!
