I just came back from the home of one of the several siblings that own the old farm property that I hunt. Apperently, there is a family feud among some of the siblings and my hunting there was one of the sources of contention. I have always made a large effort to be respectful to all the members of the family and always show my appreciation to them for letting me hunt their property. The one who is making the biggest fuss, does not hunt nor does he have children that hunt so it's not like I'm infringing on their hunting areas. He says he is afraid that I will get hurt while on their property and try to sue......Number 1- I'm not that type. Number 2- I tried to explain that the written permission slips provided by the state of Ohio, refers to the an ordinance in the Ohio Revised Code that hold the property owners harmless who give permission for recreational use of their land. The sibling who usually signs my permission slip gave me the option of moving my stands to a different part of the farm where his son hunts and his son is ok with this also but I then I would feel as if I was infringing on his son's hunting. Even though they have given me written permission for this season, I will probably pull my stands this Friday and let the property go. Anyone have an other ideas or comments on how to handle this...............Thanks:sad:

No, it is not my family and no I do not pay for a lease. I am pulling all but one stand tomorrow. That stand, I have let the son hunt from for 3 firearms seasons but it has to be moved also. I will let him hunt it this year's firearm season but I think I'll phase myself completely out of that property after this year. The sibling in question does not want to discuss the matter with me and I'd rather bow out on good terms with the rest of the family then end up adding fuel to the fire. B.T.W. this would have been 10 yrs of hunting this property. Thanks all for your input.

Stands have been pulled and set at different property. It's going to take a couple seasons to learn how to hunt this little wooded section of land but there is a fresh scrape and alot of sign so maybe..............!!!!!. We'll find out in the morning

Update

Good news! I just tied up 16 more acres connected to the new property I started to hunt this year. Also, just talked to the lawyer of the coal company who owns the next tract of land beyond that and they are interested in selling me at least 11 more acres of property provided that their coal interest has in that area is exhausted which he beleives it has..
