I went to my spot (state land) to check on things for the last time before Saturday.

As Im pulling up I notice 3 cop cars by where I usually park (Im thinking they just caught someone stealing my stand).

I park my truck and get out and approach the area where the officers are standing. They are standing on the road I take into the woods and are talking to two kids. I notice one cop has a camo shotgun in hand.

I ask the cop if everything is ok and if its safe to go in the woods, he tells me they have it under control and will be out my way in a few minutes.

I waited till they left then walked into the woods, As I headed throught the woods I noticed spent shotgun shells (#8 shot) along my route.

As I get within 20 yrds of my stand I notice about 20 spent shells in the area.[mad] I walked out through the back side of my stand and notice more spent shells along the way.

I approach my stand thinking they just shot it up but dont find any issues or problems with it.

It seems these two knuckleheads decided to shoot up the woods two days before opening day and right by the area I hunt[wallmad].

Do you guys think its even worth my going in Saturday morning or should I wait it out?

Don't worry, go anyway. I don't think the shooting will stop the deer from coming in if you have been baiting. Besides, you can't sit home on opening morning! Good luck I am sure you will do alright![up]
