Hunting Season

Well, I picked up my signs, new locks for the gates, and sometimes wonder why I bother? I go through this ritual all the time. Last time, “they” — who ever “they” were, just tore down all the “no trespassing” and “no hunting” signs I put up, sometimes, they shoot ‘em up, first! I think I’ve bought 6 new locks, so far this year, at a cost of $20-$25 each. People like to break them off. I don’t know why, they cannot get through, and the dogs and I just chase them off, again. But still, something about a locked gate on “their” national forest just sets them off. I figure this is my “zen” practice — I look to Quan Yin to teach me compassion for people who have no sense, except one of “entitlement.”

And I can always tell when hunters are out and about, as they are today, because I can hear the gunfire, and even if I cannot, my dogs can. Dakota, the alpha female, has a terrible fear of gun shots, and hides at my feet whenever she can.

Oh, I guess deer hunting season is over on the 21st of this month. *Sigh* only 18 days left!!

  1. I am surprised that the National Park Service allows it to occur on its lands. Lacey Hunting

  2. Lacey Hunting,
    The lands you refer to is the Los Padres National FOREST, not Park lands.
