    Today while hunting on public land I was treated to the inconvenient surprise of seeing a hunter walking in after I has set up well before dark. He sounded like he went about 100 yards from where I was and as soon as 07:30 rolled around I could hear him rattling horns and using a grunt call for about a solid 3 minutes to the point that he sounded like a Yugo with a bad muffler driving down a logging road. I know it is pulic access land but I at least will move on to another spot if I see a truck parked near a specific section. I have also experienced the Daniel Boone imitators that have watched too much outdoor shows and think they can stalk deer through dry leaves as quiet as Western hunters stalk across open fields. Especially comical but frustrating when they do it after you have walked in and set up in the dark and are doing all you can to stay quiet and concealed. What is everyody's thoughts on public land etiquette?

    I think you get what you pay for so to speak. When it comes to etiquette the common sense in someone says, "How would I want my hunt to go?" That usually wouldn't include some yahoo stomping in, grinding up a tree, and doing a snort wheeze til every deer in the country has been spooked... too bad common sense ain't so common.

    to put a positive spin on it, he didn't see you! so your camo is working great
