    Professional Courtesy. Where do you stand?

    Just as in law enforcement (and I do know), when a State Trooper stops a vehicle and finds out that the driver is either a fellow officer, fireman, or EMT etc, he will generally let them off with a warning.

    In a sense, the same goes for this hobby right? You are invited to a site by your host and go home with some relics just knowing that there are more there.....Or you hear from a buddy about a site that he is planning on MDing.

    So do you just invite yourself and/or your other buddies to the site without notifying the one that invited you? Just curious.

    Personally, if someone one shows me a site I would not show it to someone else with out their permission first.

    No, you should never invite your self or your friends to someone else site or hunt.
    If they were to show up on my site or Hunt I would Polity ask them to remove them selves.
    More often then not I hunt alone and on private property.
    It would not be right for me to allow them to stay.

    Never just invite yourself to someones site, or bring or tell anyone without the original hunters permission. If your buddy got a new TV and asked you if you wanted to watch the game on it one time, you wouldn't assume you could just go to his house anytime even if he wasn't home and watch his TV, and you certainly wouldn't bring other people with you.

    NOLA Ken put that in a perspective everybody should understand. Also, I tried to find the link to the news article, but not too long ago an off-duty Denver officer got pulled over in our county for DUI. He tried to pull the 'brothers in law enforcement', and our officers treated him like anybody else and took him straight to jail. Which is how it really should be.

    It would depend if it was public or private property I say. I wouldn't personally do anything like that but you can't expect everybody will consider a public area off limits just because someone else detected it first.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    Sorry, I just don't see how the two relate. But no, I don't think you should "bring a friend" unless instructed to do so. And just because someone invites you to their house for dinner, that doesn't give you an open invitation to stop by and raid their refrigerator at will.

    But your house is your property...a public park, field, campground, school..etc isn't.

    I would not do it especially private property. I have had people tell me at the beach that it is their beach. I just ask if they can show me clear title to it.

    True. That example may have been as much of a stretch as relating it to the "brothers in arms" example in the beginning. And I agree about the public parks and such. No one just "discovered" those. I was referring to places that actually required research and a little leg work on your part to discover that they had great potential. These may or may not be public, but are not obvious places to hunt. I just assumed that the original poster was referring to those type pf places, not public parks and schools. If I hunt a park and do good and then you hunt it, more power to ya. But if I spend a month researching a large "public" wooded area to find exactly where the old church picnic grove stood 100 years ago and tell you about it in passing, when I go to hunt it I wouldn't want to see your truck parked there.

    I saw how those two related. Papa Bear has an interest in law enforcement, and I got the relation between the scenarios, but it was a stretch. I did not see any reference to 'brothers in arms'. Coinstriking Michigan makes some good finds, so if I saw him in our local public tot lot regularly, well yeah I probably wouldn't feel bad hitting it on his off days, if he left anything. If he had done some research and came up with a promising spot he was workin on, I really wouldn't feel right about barging in there without his say so. I have some sites I feel are promising but I've either given up on or will never get to them, so I'll tell folks all about them. A couple of others, nobody will know about, unless they find them on their own. And some of those are on public land.

    Like I said before, I don't personally agree with it and would never do it but I see why some would.
