    i just witnessed today , at dusky dark, a young fellow shoot at group of 8 deer in field front of my house. heard vehicle stop looked out door saw the deer he turns around in highway leaves about 5 mins comes back , stops shoots at the deer from the road in his truck. man that makes me MAD!!!!!!.i hunt by the rules and over a week after season this happens. i've found 2 dead does in the ditch very close by home last couple of weeks and pretty sure they met the same fate. i called wildlife commission report it and get a call back from wake county officer that the johnston county officer was unavailable. i'm not mad with them but we law abiding hunters should get some kinda service when needed. just makes me sick and mad as h_ll that this happened. right under my nose in plain sight. don't know if deer was hit or killed got dark to quick. i hope for deers sake he missed. it was very hard to watch pickup just drive off after this with me looking. just felt like sharing this and hope no one else has this happen to them!

    sucks
    Man that sucks. Normally I'd say start shooting back if he was shootin' towards your house but probably ain't a good idea if it's a highway. Call it Karma, 'you reap what you sow', or whatever but I firmly believe that folks that do messed things will get hit with it sooner or later.

    Sucks
    Joco, We been running Trap lines and still hearing Rifle shots often...We should probably be wearing Orange with such idiots in the woods...I heard a Guy talking the other Day about Bow-Hunting still and I asked 'In Davidson County?' He said yeah!! I said 'Davidson County doesn't have a Urban Archery season?' And he said 'Oh!! They don't Care...they want the Deer gone!!...He then went on to say that he was on Private Land Blah Blah but yeah It's a shame but just think of all the deer that are getting shot under the Night Hunting Coyote law..................
