i live in west central illinois,i have hunted parks for a while,with some success,but was wondering if anyone else has run into the endless stream of idiot hunters i have.for instance,while hunting shabbona park 2 years ago i watched a guy w/bow walk the entire edge of a cut down cornfield at sunset,he ended up 5 yards from me!when i asked what was he thinking? he looked up 20ft in amazement! and walked away without saying a word. this is just one instant,one, i have had at least 20 run ins w/hunters in the parks walking around aimlessly with no idea what they are doing almost every park hunt.the most familiar was at silver springs park in yorkville ill., i had patterned a nice buck cutting across mid-day. i set up at 8;45am on aperfect elm tree 18ft up-14yds from his trail,1 hour later,a guy walking on the ground stops by a downed tree to my left about 25 yards away. i whistled &waved , im hunting here! he didnt move!hey buddy i cant move,i got 20ft of sticks &my portable locked on this tree.--nothing! hey guy what if a deer comes between you and me ,who gets the shot?? i never thought about that he replies. dont get me wrong i dont have a problem with hunting from the ground,but walking around a park aimlessly is interfering with other hunts PERIOD,--I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE ELSE HAS HAD THESE TYPE OF ENCOUNTERS WHILE HUNTING PUBLIC PARKS?
