Posting property now

My wife and I decided not to post our property because I believed people should be allowed to hunt on private property. That all changed when my tree stand was stolen on the opening day of deer season and I was verbally accosted when I went to introduce myself to a group of hunters on my property – twice.

My views on posting property have changed and I encourage others to do the same unless they want their property stolen and want to deal with confrontational “hunters” who will decrease your safety and increase your liability in one swoop. I am a hunter and am disgusted by the behavior of others who seem bent on destroying the heritage and reputation of the hunters who have gone before us.
