It’s that time of year again, where we overloaded with city idiots out here. These folks have no respect, don’t honor no trespassing signs, shoot willy-nilly all over everywhere, and just make a general nuisance of themselves. My property is plainly posted, both with signs and purple paint. I do NOT allow dove hunting over my field. Apparently the bunch behind me cannot read, or do not give a shit. I knew yesterday that they were getting close to my fenceline, I could hear them banging away back there. Just about daylight this morning I hear them again, followed immediately by a dog screaming, one of MY dogs. Turns out they were shooting over my field and one of my dogs (Tori) took a stray shotgun pellet hit in the side of the chest. So, you wanna guess where I have been, and where she still is? Yep, the vet, on a freakin’ holiday, again. Of course the shooting assholes high tailed it before I got back from the vet. I will be laying for their asses this evening. The Sheriff has been notified, and I intend to raise some hell. These same two assholes hunt the property behind me every year, and every year I have trouble with them. The unwritten rule is that the leasing property owner is responsible for policing their hunters if necessary. I will be having a chat with the property owner just after church time today, and we are ALL going to be having a chat this evening……..property owner, Sheriff, me.
I realize that accidents happen, but you don’t “accidentaly” shoot over a field that is clearly marked “No Trespassing, No Hunting”. I am pissed.
Tori will be fine, they are digging the pellet out in surgery right now. It didn’t penetrate the chest wall completely, it’s stuck between two ribs. She is going to be one really sore girl, poor baby.
