So, I'm sitting on my deer stand this morning about 500 yards from my truck, which I can see from where I am. About 7:00 am a red and black Toyota Land Cruiser comes speeding down the gravel road at about 45 mph, and as they pass my truck they lay on the horn several times. Obviously, this was meant to destroy my morning hunt. I was on private property, for which I have permission to hunt. I was hunting legally and according to regulations. Someone decided to harass me for doing that. Since they were obviously non-hunters they were probably on their way to work in nearby Maupin, which is more and more inhabited by the kind of people one finds in downtown Portland; arrogant and condescending. Well, just to let the folks in Maupin know how things are, if your co-worker/friend/neighbor succeeds in getting me to stop hunting over there, here's what gets taken away from the local economy during deer season: 1. $300 in Maupin camping fees 2. $200 in Maupin gasoline sales 3. $200 in Maupin restaurant sales 4. $100 in lost/forgotten/used up stuff from the Maupin hardware and grocery stores. That's $800 spent in Maupin for the week for just one hunter. Now multiply that by a couple hundred. Maybe when that co-worker/friend/neighbor starts bragging about their behavior this morning you can ask them how you're going to pay the bills without any income from hunters.
