recently while stalking i had rather a few too many encounters with the public which all in all made the day difficult to say the least :
6:30am 6 walkers
9:30am 4 walkers 2 with dogs that where not under control
11.00am Family with 4x4 pickup truck, removing (stealing) freshly cut timber from the face of the hill. (they (4 of them) had walked to the top of the clear fell and where throwing logs / tree trunks down the hill side onto a track)
1pm cyclists, unknown area, bikes dumped in the forest
2pm motorcross chaps, x 4 with the usually associated 2 stroke noise.
3pm 4 labs ( no owner in sight ) roaming arround under no control, but they where nice well trained dogs if just a little on the porky side of FAT.
3:30 4 walkers
To say the least it was a struggle but the day did end with a nice hind.
has anyone else encountered so many "problems" in one single days stalking???
