Yeah, I guess jerks ARE universal. It's okay for you to trespass but not okay for them...riiiiiight.
Sounds to me like it wasn't the hunters land in that story but rather the sheriff. Who I am assuming the rider had permission to ride on the land seeing as she called him to tell him about the hunters. Or did I read that totally wrong?
How much you wanna bet he didn't report the fact he'd slashed their tires?
Actually, I had a valve stem puller...this removes the valve in the filler stem which holds the air in...no slashing or punctures...just major hassle....and actually, one of my Grandfather's deputy's taught me this trick and gave me the puller. He said, "sometimes hassle is a better lesson than a ticket".
