I'm sorry, I just have to say that if my neighbors want to go hunting, fine. But for the weeks prior to hunting practice I have to listen to them firing their weapons all darn day long and I don't like it. They are about 800 hundred feet away, on the next farm, and (mostly) fire away from the barns, but they start at 7 a.m. and go on for hours and hours. Every single rifle shot makes me jump. It makes me worry that they will hit one of my free-ranging turkeys or barn cats, or god forbid, my friend biking down the farm lane (accidentally of course). This area is full of farms, suburban developments and houses along the roads -- it's not an area where you are "out in the middle of nowhere". Personally I would like if they would go do target practice somewhere MUCH farther away from other people's properties! They are "somewhat" respectful, but last year, their high-powered elk-hunting rifle bullets were landing 20 feet from MY barn and I had to discuss it with them and they denied it despite the fact that I was with several friends who were all witnesses at the time. (they travel to Montana to hunt the elk). This year, buckshot was twice fired so close to my house that it landed 10 feet from my home and about 3 feet from my cat who freaked out. They are of the opinion that they have the right to do this, but honestly, it angers me that they are so inconsiderate. They invite other hunters and friends to come shoot on their farm as well and these other people are not careful about which way they are hunting. I have no hunting signs posted on my property, btw. I would like to hear from the hunters out there what your opinions are on this (please, in a nice way).
