    Glad I was on your side back in the day. It would have been bad for me had I been a bad guy in your jurisdiction.

With all the city idiots moving out and building houses on 5 acres or less. Finding a large enough track of private land that isn't leased is impossible. Why I quit hunting last year.
    .
    I've lost a lot of my favorite hunting grounds too. Used to I could hunt in most directions from my own land and other owners knew me well. Land got sold to , well lets not go to what I think of them........ I get idiots I don't know, ask "What are You doing hunting here?", on my own land. Then I ask them what are they doing trespassing?

    I still have a few large tracts of public lands that not many get into. No ATVs allowed and many are too lazy to walk in. Drawback is that it is a long drag to get your deer out of the woods. I carry a couple of real small double aluminum pulleys and a bunch of 550 cord, if needed I can hang the deer from a tree and stay overnight or come back in morning. Bring some salt and pepper in a backpacking holder, nothing like fresh venison cooked over maplewood on a stick skewer. I usually have a small pack with basics in it in bigger woods, some food water/filter, gear to set up a basic shelter and a few extra clothes.

    There are a few wilderness areas in national parks I hunt. Usually never see another human footprint and don't forget your compass.

    I did, too. Still, there were times when I extracted morons through the window. I remember the time I encountered someone who was wearing a seatbelt. It was hilarious.

    I'm setting up a special scenario just as soon as I get the backstop finished.

    Supposed to be done before 2nd thurs of Oct.

    Will take the guys in my VVA honor guard (we're all geezers who like to sleep well), . . . lay em down on a door, masquerading as their bed. Cover em up with a blanket, . . . blindfold on.

    Will put up a target from Law Enforcement Target, . . . almost full body size. It may be a woman, . . . a kid, . . . a bad guy, . . . a bad girl, . . . a hostage situation.

    Once the target is in place, . . . I will begin to play special sound effects for them, . . . they need to come up out of bed and react properly according to the threat they perceive.

    Bed will be oriented to the backstop as their personal bed normally is, . . . with nightstand, . . . they bring their "home defense" weapon.

    It gives them a chance to see just how well they will react.

    If I can, . . . I'm going to film the whole thing, . . . including the sound effects, . . . maybe cut some of it and post it here.

    All of us revert to the level of training we have comprehended, . . . hoping to help my group move up a bit.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    Sounds rough. I accidentally pulled a guy out of his artificial leg one time. He refused to come out to chat on the passenger side..so I started pulling on the head parts. I was wondering why the leg started looking longer. He got it reattached at the jail but the air being forced out of the hollow leg from his stump made it sound like he was pharting each time he took a step till all the air got purged.

    Mrs Inor and I take a bunch of these out to a deep wash:

    https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1015758521?pid=871860

    Where we usually go, it is about a 1/4 mile walk in to where we shoot. So we do not worry about the callanetics before shooting. After hiking all of our stuff in, our heart rates are certainly raised to near heart attack levels, especially since neither of us is anything close to being "fit". We letter each of the 4 targets A, B, C and D. One of us stands with the firearm in a 2 handed grip, knees bent and elbows relaxed at our sides. We call that our "ready position". The other of us stands to the left and slightly behind the shooter - that one is called the "Shouter". The Shouter yells out a random letter, A, B, C or D and the shooter has to pull into position and put 2-3 shots into the A, B, C or D target as quickly as they can and pull back into the ready position.

    We do not worry about dead on accuracy, just that we can get 2-3 shots into the correct target as quickly as possible. The logic being, if we split the aorta of an attacker, great. But if we hit 1-2 inches left or right of the aorta ASAP, the bad guy is still in deep shit and we're golden.

    Sometimes we even make it a game and (gasp) keep score.

    Haven't done any drills since moving to FL. It seems hard finding public land where you can shoot. Maybe in a couple years we'll figure if we are staying or going so I can buy something with more acreage.
