Angry vaseline camp

I Agree with all of that, even the comment about limits, thats my dilema. It s high time I start being a jerk. I do all the work and they reap the rewards. I am happy when they kill deer for certain but to take em and never thank me And basically they killed and left And I will see you next November....or so they think. Im done, they are not my friends. Friends wouldnt put themselves first when they know the amount of money and time I HAVE invested. Thanks for all the comments, couldnt just ask anyone, they dont understand Hunting.

tds i hope you stick to your word because it doesnt sound like your having any fun.the whole purpose of hunting with friends is to enjoy there company.at our camp every night if somebody gets a deer every person is in the barn skinning, cutting,having a couple beers,getting the bstraps prepped to eat,telling stories and having a good time.i dont hear none of that from you,sad to say but your missing out.

My problem is I enjoy giving but the last few years All i have is takers. I see trophy after trophy that should be on my wall and they are not. I cant make myself available anymore, I do miss out and I know that now.

I agree with HM to an extent. I agree that if my buddies want to come hunt on my land that they should be able to shoot deer, BUT if there is one deer that I WANT personally, they should respect me and my land enough to leave that deer alone. Also, if I tell them to not shoot anything under 3 1/2 years old and they shoot a bunch of spikes or little 4 pointers, I'm going to be upset with them. It all comes down to respect and tdshunter is not getting it from his friends.
now, that said, tdshunter, you don't have to stop being friends w/them, I just wouldn't let them hunt my spot anymore. If they ask why, tell them bluntly that you aren't able to come to their property and kill big bucks on theirs so why should YOU allow them to come to yours and shoot all your bucks?!?! That just doesn't make sense.
Tdshunter, you are making the right decision. I agree with HM that hunting can be very very fun and rewarding with your buddies, but they have to respect your wishes as well. Back to the main point,,,, it is YOUR land, YOUR rules and procedures for that land should be followed by all that occupy it.
