Default Drive-by deer hunting

One of my buddies and I took off work to go deer hunting last week on my grandma's property. My grandma and her sister own roughly 1,000 acres in a rural county in KY.

After hunting all day on one part of the property we decided try another peice of the property where we saw the deer running into the field the prior night.

When we came upon the property we found a neighbor parked on the property. He told us he was teaching his grandson how to hunt. He said that his grandosn had shot the deer in the truck on the road with a 22. He was a "great shot."

I really become sick when I saw the deer was a button buck and was shot in the neck.

I found out later that the neighbor does not have permission to be on any of the property.

I found this wrong on so many levels:
1. shooting a deer with such a small caliber gun
2. shooting a deer off of a public road
3. shooting a deer on private property
4. teaching an innocent child all of the above

Is this comon practice for hunters? This is my first year deer hunting and it has really left a bad taste in my mouth for this sport.

Probably should have gave him a stern warning on all accounts and promised that next time would require a call into the DNR!

I live in ky and it is illegal to use a 22 for deer, it is illegal to hunt from a vehicle unless you have a special permit from fish n game permitting you to. (and those are only to disabled), and it is also illegal to trespass on private land. And to teach all this to a youth is just wrong !!! I would have called fish n game !!

Default You know who he is, go talk to him...

I would have a calm discussion about how he was not allowed on the property to hunt without permission. I would also give him a copy of the regs so that he knows that he was teaching his Grandson incorrectly. Make it clear that your family does not allow others to hunt the property. I would make a point of saying that we don't want to bring anyone else in like the DNR.

Karl that was what I was trying to say. Neighbors sometimes require discussion before full blown formal action is taken on certain matters. I'm not advocatig any of the above actions, period.
