Default Why asking for hunting spots is not good etiquette…

This is not a hard topic. Go ahead and ask for hunting spots, but don’t be surprised when when people do not roll out the welcome wagon.

In 1975 there were 1.8 million people in our fair province. Now there 4.3 million. Figure out if it is harder to obtain permission.

Gas is $1.70L. Bit more expensive to find those enjoyable spots too.

Trucks start at $50k and maintenance is in keeping with that figure,

Ask away, but realize when you are asking for someone’s hunting or fishing spot, a heckuva pile of time effort, and cost went into getting it, so don’t be surprised if you are not given cookies and milk along with your request.

Do this long enough and you get burnt by bringing friends who show up later unannounced, and uninvited, much less rolling the dice with strangers.

Simple truth is you should get off the computer, and go find your own spots.

No one ever said that hunting or fishing is or should be easy, and it doesn’t make people rude when they see guys who contribute nothing to the forum, or next to it, and let them know that questions like this are not really the most kind of cool.

Truth is when you put in the effort yourself, success is much more rewarding.

Finally, mentoring newer hunters is part of giving back to the sport, and thus most weekends you will find a new or newer hunter in our blinds. But giving away hunting spots to strangers on the internet is a far cry from mentoring beginning hunters.
