A few weeks after deer season ends, Dad and I head back out to gather my tree seats. For whatever season, I didn’t go this year but Dad made sure he called me as soon as he got back.
When he headed to meh tree seat, there was something odd there. Pink electric tape was tied at the top of the seat and coiled around the seat to the bottom of the ladder. This seat is on our property. And I have hunted from the seat for the past 4 years – it’s where I shot my 10 pointer last season. I have never seen another hunter while I have been sitting there, although Dad saw a hunter in a Hemlock further into the woods. So who? What? Why?
Dad thinks it could be a family that hunts near us and have a couple of tree seats further down the powerline. I used to babysit for the boys and one of them might have done it as a “I know where you hunt” but why? I know where they hunt too, but we don’t tag their spots.
Dad is just as protective of our hunting spots but is not as riled up as I am. Maybe we find out who put pink! (yuck) tape on my seat. Until then, here come the Posted signs.
