anyone have a problem with quad and dirtbike riding during hunting season, it really sucked, it ruined my fall and winter bow season, i have been hunting for about 23 years and getting sick of ignorant people, don't get me wrong i have nothing against anyone having some fun, i own a quad myself but, there's a time and place for this! (like on Sunday's)

If they are riding on fish and wildlife management areas this is not legal. You have every right to report this activity .Also ,if people dont have a place to ride they should not be buying these things!!!!

The way I see it, the deer are used to those guys and it doesn't throw them off too much. They also could get the deer moving in your direction... I don't mind them to tell you the truth!

I have people riding 4wheelers on the property behind where i hunt. It is incredibly annoying when you just want to get away from everything and have a nice quiet hunt and you get some jerks ripping up the woods (where they arent supposed to be) I have had them push deer towards me but I'd rather not put up with the noise

There are so many of them riding around in Zone 21, I'm surprised none of them have been shot! That's by accident, so don't read this wrong. They are a royal pain in the butt.

not for anything but if theses people are riding quads on "legal" property (even though they are close to your hunting spot) then they have that right...we not the ONLY people allowed in the woods

We use to have a problem with them here on the farm. Notice I said " use to ".
Simple cure. Locate the trail they use and bury a few 1"X6" boards with LONG deck screws in them. Don't use nails, the tires only leak slow and they can drive them home. The deck screws TEAR their way out of the tire, resulting in immediate flats. It's really fun watching them push those big quads. :D
One guy started to give me a hard time till he saw Mrs. Nightstalker get out of the old farm truck, behind me, with a 12ga. riot gun in her hand. Never saw him again, and word spreads fast ! These Piney's down her ( and she's one ) don't take no " POOP " from anyone. I've made it a point not to cross her.
:D:D

Word of advice...you are just ASKING to get sued. Next time one hits them and gets hurt, they will own your farm and ride all they want.

I used to hunt in zone 51 and there wa alot of dirt bikes riding through our private land. It was private, unposted land that was hunted by a few locals..The deer got used to seeing the riders and more than once I saw deer just crouch down and when the bike passed they resumed feeding..In that case I dont think the bikes affected the deers routine..They are loud and annoying but I dont think they affected my hunting too much..Deer get used to human activities and come to accept them. Now if that quad ro bike went off trail or was in an area that doesnt see riders, then the deer might react differently...

We thought about the lawsuits " after " we did it [sad]
It is something to consider.

Her old man ( a real PINEY ) said " Just string up some pianee wire , that'll stop em "

That's the old time way. Not today, no way.
