I hunted a couple hours before work this morning, then went to quick check in lake hopatcong for a cup of coffee before continuing a few blocks to the jobsite. Not there 5 minutes and three explorers with four lake hopatcong cops pull up, looking for me.
Turns out, someone saw my shotgun case in the front seat and followed me to the jobsite and called the cops.
They were pretty cool about it and the older cop said he knew right away that it was probably a deer Hunter.
I told them I've been hunting for over 45 years and never had an issue with carrying a firearm in a vehicle.
Told them 'guess I'm not in Blairstown '.
Even went to school with my shotgun in the rack above the truck seat.
Everyone use to know when it was 'deer season'.
Un f'n real.

I hate this freaking liberal state! I told my sons not to tell anyone or even wear camo clothes to school for the fear of dumbasses causing problems. Pretty sad.

Yeah here in NJ your guilty until proven innocent. The law does not even allow a stop for coffee on way to hunt if read wrongly.

Years ago it was ok to drive around town with your harvest. Now you have to hide it along with your shotgun......pretty sad.

Unfortunately with everything going on in this country some people just live on edge and even though they live in this neck of the woods where there is hunters alot of these people have no idea when hunting season is open or that the same woods alot of them walk are hunted. I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often especially during predictor hunting when you have guys in full camo walking into the woods with ARs or guys at dark walking into the woods with shotguns. To those of is who hunt we know exactly what's going on but to the non hunting public a guy with a gun makes them $h!t their pants...just my opinion and no I'm not sticking up for the person that called on you I just know people and even have family members that are like that.

"Unfortunately with everything going on in this country some people just live on edge"

 

​Sort of true but not exactly IMO.... The problem is the law.. The government in NJ is doing its best to keep guns out of sight.. And in doing so people aren't accustomed to seeing firearms.. So they think the worst when they do see one.. They don't know the difference between a threat and a hunter.. or a threat and someone exercising their right to bear arms...  ​In free states you don't have that kind of problem unless you get some ding bat from a communist state move in.. the good thing is their stupidity goes largely ignored.. sooner or later they become, shall we say, acclimated to free America.. either that or they run back to where they came from.. 

 

I was in a convenience store a week or so ago in a free state.. there was a black man open carrying a glock.... nobody cared.. including the cop who was there getting his morning fix of coffee and donuts... :cupcoffee:

Its the see something say something thing that is pushed ad nauseam to a public that doesn't have a clue to what they are seeing that merits the phrase. Like the gun cookie shown by a kid in school whose record is scarred as he is suspended from school. All driven by a progressive media that pleasures in driving mass hysteria. Good god please bring back common sense, please.

I offered my hunting license , then they wanted my drivers license (to confirm my I.d. ) then my firearms i.d. card. Everything checked out.
I was 100% legit. So no issues...like I mentioned in original post, the cops were pretty cool about it and we actually joked around a little bit. My grip or disbelief is with the general public and how things have changed over the years...what will it be like in another 30 or 40 years ?!?!

I'm really hoping that I'll be dead by then and buried in a different state.
