I'm very upset right now and need to vent. Please, no flaming or I will ask for this thread to be closed in a heartbeat. TY There is an elderly neighbor lady that my DH's family has known for 40+ years. She was very helpful to DH's family when his mom was sick, and at other times. Despite that, I don't know her very well having only spoken to her a few times. To put it mildly, her and I are from different planets. Have absolutely nothing in common. So, this lady just came up here to buy eggs from me and bring me some egg cartons. Unlike our other neighbor that has commercial chicken houses and doesn't have a problem being around my free range birds, I can tell this lady (who also has commercial houses) is uncomfortable being around here. I took the eggs out to her while she waited by her truck. As she was about to leave, she asked me if it would be okay to kill a deer or two that she's seen on our side of the fence and share the venison with us. I didn't know how to respond! I told her, well we don't eat venison and we are trying to not disturb the herd that is living on this farm. I didn't mention that it would be very offensive to me for her to do that, for religious reasons. I also forgot to mention that DH would not approve, because we have cows on the land right now. These cows belong to the other neighbor; we lease our pastures to him. I did tell her that if she were to shoot a deer on her land and it came over the property line, it would be okay to come over and finish it off. DH had told her last year that it was okay to squirrel hunt along the property line. Now I'm in tears, knowing that she will kill off some of the herd that has found sanctuary on this farm during hunting season. I'm sorry to all you hunters out there; but I don't tell you what you can do on your own land or leases. It's none of my business. This, however, is. Sorry for the long rant, but I can't stop crying.
