Hillwalkers, Beware of Becoming Hunting Fodder
by madeleineblue  7 Mar 2017
Good to hear your experience of boys with (lethal) toys. My experience was in the area between Drumgoff and Carrawaystick at the start of the hunting season. Returning along the old forest road from a lovely jaunt over by Kelly's Lough, I came upon a large jeep pulled up on the ditch. As I approached, two men (in said camouflage) appeared. One wielding a hunting (I presume) rifle, the other a serious looking pair of binoculars, they were an odd sight at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Odd enough that I didn't hang around to chat. However, I did spare a thought for other walkers I'd seen in the distance during the course of my walk, and mentioned my sighting to a local. I wasn't the only person puzzled seeing hunters so late in the day. Cue phone calls and discussion. Result? Well, it depends on where you see the hunters as to who is responsible for checking them out. If you can figure that one out, then it's up to the relevant authority to enforce the hunting licence legislation....if you can figure out who that may be..! I'm so glad I just walk the hills and my rucksack is bright orange..:)) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1064/comment/18856/
