I'm boycotting Jaindl turkeys from PA.

After requesting permission to hunt on their property, I was given a politically correct statement that due to "current hunting issues" they will not grant permission to hunt on their vast farmlands--even if you are willing to pay, sign a waiver and code of conduct.

While they may not go broke because we don't buy turkeys from them anymore, I will not support a company who does not support its local hunters and consumers.

i am with you 100%. that is wron. i mean i don't know how much farmland they have but i sounds horrible. i beleive that we should all stick together and make anti-hunters know how close we are to each other. so good luck with your boycott and your hunting season.

Thanks.

I would have had a better reaction to their response had they quit at the first sentence, stating that "only long-time acquaintances of the Jaindl family are allowed to hunt on their property" -- I'm all for private property rights too.

However, the second paragraph got into the politically correct mumbo-jumbo about "current hunting issues" and them not wanting to change their policies.

So, let me get this straight...they cave to liberals, most of which are veggie eaters, but shy away from people that are also killing birds just as they are, but using shotguns vs. mass electrocution.:D

I just got another email from a different person at Jaindl's stating that they will add me to the list when a hunting site opens...they forgot to tell me if that was when hell freezes over, or monkeys fly out my a$$!:D

GooseBob: do Jaindl sell directly to the public, or do they distribute? I'm from W. Pa; frankly, I've never heard of them. Around here we get Honeysuckle & Butterball. If Jaindl distribute, I'd like to know to whom. I want no part of any antis or their products. We suffer enough w/o giving money to those who oppose us.

I'm an absolutely not defending Jaindl but what is happening with these large corporate landowners in all lot of cases is that their attorneys not anti hunters are telling them not to allow hunting because of liablity. It is still a shame but it seems if the family doesn't hunt they are advised not to allow it. Signing a waiver for them in their eyes doesn't do them a damn bit a good if something bad where to happen. The flip side is corp families who do hunt want to keep it for themselves and their close buddies so the average guy still get the foot in the wazoo regardless. Throw is some pain in the rear anti's and sportmans like us are in for some very challenging times obtaining permission ect.

From a liabilty standpoint I can see their concern it just isn't worth the risk but as an avid sportsman I sympathize because who wouldn't love the opportunity to hunt prime private land.

There is no solution so the battle will go on and be tougher for us before it gets better.

The family does hunt and I am totally for private property and would have accepted (without further comment) if they would have just flat out said "no, we only let friends/family hunt the land..." This I can respect.

Instead I got the politically correct "we don't allow hunters because of all the current hunting/gun issues" crap. In essence, they cave to the libs who don't even eat meat, and use this as their excuse...that's why I'm boycotting Jaindl's.

Mark, they have turkey farms where they raise and slaughter the birds by the thousands and some get the Jaindl name (locally) on the wrapper, but who else buys from them, I'm not sure--I'd love to know though.

Ol' man Jaindl was a dirt farmer before he became a major landowner. He rose from rags to riches, and he earned everything he has. For whatever reason he decided to decline you hunting priviledges on his land, get over it. You are missing on key detail, it's his. I understand you are a gamer, so find somewhere else where you can game. Boycotting a company over this issue is ridiculous, and you are exposing yourself for what you really are. And please remember, I'm sure he is not denying you priviledges, he is denying everyone that same right. If people in your situation would have their way, the land would be overrun with hunters. Do you really think everyone would follow a code of conduct? If that were the case, there would be no pollution anywhere.

Old man Jaindl was a dirt farmer before he was a major land-owner. He is a perfect example of rags to riches. I know you are upset because they denied you priviledges to hunt on their land, but if everyone in your situation had it their way, the land would be overran with hunters. One thing you have to remember is that it's his land, and you can not honestly be upset that someone is saying 'Please don't hunt on my land'. It's his. And trying to boycot Jaindl Turkey Farm is ridiculous, and you are exposing yourself for what you really are. I understand you are a gamer. Do you still hunt? If so, be grateful that you have somewhere else to hunt. It wouldn't be on my land.

PS. That comment about liberal vegetarians was stupid, and it made absolutely no sense.

I tried for years to get permission to hunt a certain farm that has always been off limits to all but the family that owned the property. I have been asking for years around the same time each season for permission. I finally got it. It wasn't because the farmer didn't want me there so to speak, he didn't like what happened when he let others go about their business on his property. He stated that it took him about 2 years to recover all the damage that some idiot created. After that, he stopped alowing any one on the property. He stated that when he did give me permission, that I was the only one with access and that I was permitted to bring no more than 2 other hunters with me provided that I would be resoncible for their actions. How could I not be. It's an honor and a privelege to hunt his land and I'll go to great lenghts to prove that his decision to permit me to hunt was right. I can't wait to lay a few goose breast on his door step ready for the oven.

What's with the slam man? All I'm saying is to keep trying. No the boycott. Everyone has a right to do as they wish but instead of getting angry and spiteful, keep trying. That's what hunting and good sportsmanship is all about. The effort involved and the sense of accomplishment of achieving your goal. Be it hunting someone's property, or tagging a bighorn sheep.

Rope, easy...that post was to "navyrob" whoever that is???

I did get another reply from them about being added to the list. I talked with their CFO and mentioned that they could make some extra money while the fields are dormant in winter by allowing hunters to use certain fields.

Sorry man. Thought you were shooting one across my blind there.. Many Appologies to you. I just think that there is always a way to get what you want if your willing to go the extra mile (in this case hunting somewhere forbiden). I get permission from a lot of folk that first turn me down. Sorry again. Good luck on the opener.. Ropeagaoose. :beer:

No problem, I appreciate useful input (such as yours); however, as I've learned from the NRA's "grass roots" campaigns, spreading word of mouth about companies that don't support us helps to get things changed and works.

Everthing GooseBob has said and written is untrue. I know, I am an avid hunter, I have been for 40 years. I hunt on Mr. Jaindl's land and have hunted there for many years.

What YOU DO NOT KNOW is within the past 2 years there has been property transferred out of his control into a Trust, do to a family member's passing. Those properties cannot be hunted. Maybe the person you spoke to did not want to get into that. If you would have spoken to him directly he would have explained, as he did to me.

He is a FRIEND OF THE HUNTERS, he has been for 40 years, any good hunter from this area knows that. He even closes down his plant for hunting, because he has so many hunters that work for him, all of which hunt his lands.

Stop this nonsense, and Get Your Facts Straight as you are not being fare.
I hope he never sees this sight as I would not want him to think all hunters think this way.

First off, calling me a liar is pretty much what you're doing and is not appreciated.

I asked for their permission and got a very PC anti-hunter answer from someone who claimed to be a controller. Those ARE THE FACTS.

Otherwise, I wouldn't have said one word against Jaindl. AGAIN, I RESPECT PERSONAL PROPERTY AND HAVE NO PROBLEM IF THEY WANTED TO ONLY ALLOW FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO HUNT!!!! THAT'S FINE, BUT DON'T GIVE ME "HUNTER SAFETY ISSUES" LIKE THEIR CONTROLLER DID...
