Last week at a state park I had a guy trailing me in the woods while going to grab my camera - today I was back at the same spot walking my dogs in the morning and saw a truck parked, obviously a hunter, there was a note on the window so I read it and it said something to the effect of "to the hunter in this spot we know where your bait is and have been watching it since october...we watched you come out of your tree the other night" nothing threatening but just odd I thought. Got me wondering if there was some kind of confrontation over a bait. Are guys that hard up for deer or hunting spots that they can't leave people alone?

Lost Man, Why wouldn't you ask the person trailing you what they were doing? and why would you lead someone to your spot? I'm not being judgemental.. just curious.

petenice - I didn't make it too far off of the trail when I heard him behind me so I stopped and approached him and said "whats up buddy?", he laughed and said "thats never a good sign - walking in the woods and walking right back out" and I said its never a good sign when someone is following you either. He looked a little surprised and just stood there. I turned and walked back out - never made it close to my spot really.
