More hunter stories...

I dont think a motorcycle runing through the woods can be mistaken for a deer... therefore an arrow or gun shot hitting you or your bike would be IMHO "attemped murder" and I would press charges to the max...

I would hope a reasonable human (even an irate hunter) would not want to "murder" someone.... lets hope....

It is hunting time and I usually back off during the season and let em have it for the few weeks they can hunt. I go street riding instead....

Additionally, the subject who shot the victim fled the scene and failed to render aid. The officers’ investigation revealed that while the victim was preparing to climb a tree, he was shot in the back with an arrow. A friend of the victim came to his aid and transported him out of the woods to the Munson Fire Department. Officers found evidence at the scene that led them to a suspect in Milton. Officers interviewed the suspect and were able to obtain a confession from him stating that he had shot at what he thought was a deer. The suspect admitted hearing a person scream for help but said he fled the scene because he was scared. Charges are pending."



I have been hearing that some are beginning to think it was an angry hunter that someone else was intruding on "their" hunting spot and fired at him out of anger.

Just watch out with hunters out there. I know plenty of them and know plenty that would never do such a thing...but there is no way of knowing what the state of mind people will be in when a "dirtbiker" comes intruding through their hunting area. This just caught my attention after that story MadMax posted about the guy at autozone.

Be safe.

Concurr.. We do get a break between 25 Nov - 15 Dec. Then hunting resumes through the new year. So lets use it wisely.

Sweet!
Contact Melvin with your dates so it can be factored in.

He's gonna be our Leader.

Will be working on logistics of transporting the bikes to the starting point in Tennesee.

Pretty sure Diann can pull the 18' trailer w/ bikes.
We can load it down with X number.
Need another vehicle/driver in case more than 3 riders are going.

Was planning to go to the gun show sun. Mom would like a 22 pistol for X-mass so dad and I were planning to take her over there to try some on for size, so I may take my bike and let them cage it.
