Glad you guys got a buck. Sorry you had to put up with the idiots. It takes some research and time but good areas with less pressure can be found. Looks like the Edge did the trick!

Well it seems obvious that these guys did think you were deer Steve, as you said. The fact that you WERE wearing blaze orange, and they still choose to shoot at you, just confirms the fact that they are blithering idiots. People like this are the reason the gene pool is shallow and in need of a large dose of chlorine.
Thank God they were lousy shots, in addition to being idiots.

Pity you didn't drop a round through the engine of that moron's quad...

To all,

Just a short comment and a suggestion. Blaze orange can get swallowed up in less than ideal conditions and I know these guys are idiots and frankly, I would have immediately returned fire over their heads. You cannot wait for "fools" to get the message without a "return" sonic and hope they spot orange. I can guarantee that if I am shot at, I consider it a hostile act and will engage.

I have pulled target frames in the old WWII pits for service rifle matches and the bullets do fly over your head at about 5-8 feet and the sound is unmistakable even with ear protection.

Suggestion: Bring some type of collapsable orange surveyor flag or something similar (sorta like a divers flag) to place over your position when setting up and also mount it (or something similar) on your pack frame for when hiking around the sage brush flats. It may not seem like much but blowing around in the wind, it may just give you a little extra "visibility"

Whats even worse is i bet i didn't affect them in the least, they will be out there next year shooting at some honest hunters. Its hard to imagine what I would have done in that situation, I do belief untill someone fires back they won't ever stop. I usually carry my pistol with me hunting and I would have probabaly fire a couple shots in the ground. You can tell bill and lerch must be some good guys to show some restraint in that situation.

I wouldnt say i showed that much restraint, on my feet i just cant catch a quad!! i had on a blaze orange hat and i am sure the color was washed out by looking at me walking into the setting sun. Still though i have never seen a 6'4" mule deer!!!!

I will definantly be back hunting in the near future, i am figuring speed goat as soon as i get enough points for the unit i want. No need for anyone to apologize for those two idiots no matter what state they are from
