This past Saturday I was pheasant hunting at the Flatbrook. My father and i were standing on the side of the road waiting for my 2 brothers. A bird was flushed a few fields up the road, the hunter missed and the bird flew down the road. These 3 A-holes ran up the road firing. Where is a game warden when you need one?
It is a challenge! I am still trying to get my first buck with a car or truck. I have 3 Does since I started driving at 17 but not one buck! Hunting Deer with a vehiclke is harder than with a Bow in my opinion.
All kidding aside...In West Virginia it is legal to harvest a deer from the side of the road as long as you are standing off the road you are legal. I don't think it is "Hunting" in the true sence of the word but it is Legal in some states.
I dont belive that it is ethical unless one is disabled. As far as hitting deer with the car, My family and i have taken out four deer. I have been in the car for everyone of them. Driving from Mendham back to Long Valley in the dark is like running the deer gauntlet!!!!!!!
I was pheasant hunting at the gun club in Alpha on Monday. While walking in the fields I noticed a small Jimmy/SUV across the street riding through those fields along the edge of the woods. It wasn't hard to figure out what they were doing as they were wearing orange. They went all the way down the fields really slow and then came back out. At first I though someone was just being lazy and getting a lift to a stand. Nope, just hunting from the vehicle, same as road hunting.
At a farm, Gary Holzeburg or something like that. You go back over Rt 78 and it's out about 2 miles on left. Farm Preservation land.
We lease it for bird hunting but we don't have deer rights. Too bad too, I've seen a bunch of deer there. At least 1 130 cl [no swearing please] 8 pt and a smaller 6 pt.
Crap load of does in the area too.
Got me swinging. I just know how to get there. Off 78 west and make the right at the first light. Go down to Quick Check make a left. Go to Enright gas station make a right. Go up and over hill. When you see 78 you make the left and go over it. Go out that road about 2 miles to the top of the hill. That is our property. Entrance on bottom of hill. The farmer's name is Gary and has a landing strip on his property as well as 2 planes. Nice guy and very friendly towards the club.
There are some deer stands on the property so someone hunts deer there. But we can't. The problem as I see it for that property, there is no cover to hold them there. Although we've jumped a couple in the sorgum patches when bird hunting, there is no where for the deer to really bed etc. It is most likely a very good real early morning or late afternoon spot.
The fields across the street back up to the wooded area that one of the guys said runs down to the river. I could see that side being real good as there are always deer in the fields and they have a place to go to bed.
Oh well doesn't matter since I have no place out there to hunt deer anyway. [sad]
I'm not sticking up for these slobs but,
All though they ran up the road shooting and putting people and dogs in jepordy besides them selves. It is legal to shoot from the roadside as long as you are not in a safty zone (IE.) No houses across the street, and you are not shooting ACROSS the road. Check your digest for this verification.
I ROAD HUNTER
I put the hound on top of the dog box & ride along until the hound smell his quarry. Then it's off to the races. This is a legal form of hunting in EVERY state as long as the gun is unloaded & cased.
