    curious as to what you folks feel land owners should do?

    I have a small parcel of land, that borders bigger parcels and national forest. Lots of turkeys(nuisance birds) running around. I let a fellow and his kid hunt the land. Anyway, If I am in my house or shop, and they are hunting near by, can I go outside and do stuff?

    If the turkeys are around, can you go outside and do stuff, if the hunters will be coming over?

    so, does, the land owner need to stay inside when hunters are around?

    I do know different situations will be different, but does the rancher not ranch, because there are hunters hunting there ranch? same basic thing?

    curious to the answers.

    I guess it kind of depends on the arrangement.

    If they are paying for the rights then it is a far cry from granting permission with no fee.

    When I am hunting around my house I am hunting private land owned by farmers for free. I don't expect any of the farmers to do anything different just because I am there hunting or might be hunting.

    If I was paying to hunt that would be a different story in my mind but it would also depend on the agreement with the farmer.

    I would have no problem calling ahead to see if I could hunt that day. And it wouldn't be unreasonable to have the farmer, you know, farming. If the property is small enough that you doing every day things outside prevents the hunters from getting a bird, then they'll just have to find another place to hunt.

    When I hunt farms I always ask where I should hunt and where I would be out of the way. The farmers appreciate it and always point me in the right direction. I would never expect them not to be in the field just because I was there. If I was paying for hunting rights that would be a different story.

    Definitely go on about your business. I have been hunting in a stand with a guy running his round baler in the field next to me and didn't feel bad about it. Here is why, again, I was hunting for free so I couldn't complain, and animals are used to seeing machinery in the field. I'm guessing they are used to seeing you working around your house and shop, so I wouldn't sweat it. I literally was driving down the road and there were about 20 mule deer in someones yard last year when I was hunting. The farmer was about 50 yards away cutting his sorghum. No big deal
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Even if leased/trespassing fee the property should be expected to be operated as usual.

    I hunt a farm here at home with no fee. Last year the farmer starting picking corn within 40 yards of me. Its his/your property and the hunter is just a guest to it.
