I am in college doing a paper on a "sub culture" well I chose to use PETA for my topic. The reason is because myself and my g/f's dad had some PETA members pay a visit to our goose pit, banging and clanging pans. I was just curious if anyone has had similar experiences.

Wuts up Wtrfwlr.
MY buddy and I this past nusence seasn had a similer expereance over here in upstate NY. WE were set up on the X in a fresh cut alfafa field. It was an afternoon hunt and before the birds started to fly we noticed a car pull up on the side of the road. we payed little attention to it untill I had the first flock locked up and ready to land. I probably dont have to tell U but we shot no geese that afternoon. Every time id get birds to work, that bunny huggen basterd in the car [we payed little attention to] would proceed to throw fire crackers out his window. This went on for about 2 hrs before I finaly lost it. I unloaded my weapon set it in the blind and walked over to his car. when I got about 10 feet away he simply sped off[pussy]. Thankfully I was able to get his plate # and called D.E.C. I hope that basterd learnd the hard way that fireworks are illegal in NY and so is harassing a law abiding hunter.

If you are fortunate to see these people again ask them for some literature to read. If they give you some act suprised and say " I thought PETA stood for People Eating Tasty Animals" This has been my favorite response and the veins that pop out of their forehead are hilarious!!! :lol:

It would have been hard for me to not to pummel that guy. We have had experiences like that that wasn't done by PETA but by other hunters.

After Reading the posts in this topic i wanna tell you guys of my experience, I have not had the misfortune of Running into animal rights people during Waterfowling yet but During Bowhunting in a walk in area in eastern SD I had a Couple, set their dogs on me. Anyone who has spent any time in SD knows that the State is Divided By the Missouri River and The Division is Political and philisophical as well as Geographical. Many liberals reside East River And More conservatives tend to reside west river. I had no I dea however i was goung to run into them (liberal, animal Rights Activists) in an area Designated By the state as a walk in hunting area.
I was walking out of the area after a morning hunt that had not been particularly succesfull and I see gwo people, a man and a woman, walking my way lead by two adult Boxers. all of a sudden they dropped the dogs leashes and the Dogs tore off straight at me. I froze dead in my tracks and stood still debating as whether to get an arrow out of my quiver to defend myself. as the dogs circled me Growling and barking, the woman walked Up and Told them to heal and said, " what are you doing? you cant hunt here". I said, "This is a state designated Hunting area". she Looked at me for a minute then said, well, I dont appreciate you Hunting here this is our walking trail, why do you people have to kill everything"? She then turned and her and the man continued walking down the path they got 25 yards or so further before they called the dogs back to them. you wil be happy to know however that I didnt let it bother me too much,I went back the next day and arrowed a nice little 4 point buck :)

I would've told her that her dogs are next if they don't get off.
I wouldn't have even told her. You should know not to send your dogs after some guy with a weapon and camo. Its natural selection.

i would have liked to kill them too but think of the bad PR you would have given all hunters every where. Even if u did it in self defence, the news likes to pick on hunters and we all know how the news will manipulate a story. I can picture it now. [ A man and his wife were walking their family dogs in a state park today, when suddenly an angry camo clad man started yelling at them and flinging arrows in their direction killing their 2 long time conpanions.] Things like this happen all the time to people like us but its something we have to take with a grain of salt. We have to rember that as hunters we all must do our part to portray our sport in a positive way becausee verything we do is done under a magnifiing glass.

This happen to me and a couple of buddies out on an elk hunting trip around the Steamboat Springs area in CO. They followed us about two blocks giving us s--t the entire way. We kept our heads to this day don't know how (having a short fuse myself). We walked around the corner and to our luck there was a police officer. These people continued their chatter, alot of it was swearing and I simply told the officer I wanted these three people arresed for hunter harrassment. They laughed and told me they could not be arresed and call me a f**king animal killer. The officer asked me if we were hunters , I said yes sir he ask the peta people to step over to the side of the street with him and cuffed all three of them and stuffed them in his car and appoligized to us and told us were the elk were staying in the area we were hunting. We all got 6x6 bulls turns out the police officer liked to hunt himself. :lol:

I'm late to joining this post but I have agree with %100 with what Finisher wrote and I have no idea who he is. Everyone should read his post. IT is of the utmost importance that we as sportsman not give anti hunters ANYTHING even the slightest thing to potray a bad picture of us or our sport. There is a huge sterotype that hunters are dumb hillbillys. We all know that simply isn't true.

Don't get me wrong I read all the stories and I am fuming mad at them for harrasing all of you. It would be hard for me to not attack them. But we as hunters are in fact an endangered species and while you may have short term pleasure in pummeling a person giving you a hard time. It will in the end be the worst PR move for you and our sport. Bite your lip, call the cops, ignore them whatever it takes. You men and women are the smart ones for not beating the crap out of them or slicing the dogs throat. They are entitled to their opinion and we are entitled to ours. by sticking together and being smart we are ensuring that we are still entitled to our opinion Our right.
