Many hunters are just now returning to the fields and woods to check on how things have fared on their plots over the spring and summer. This is just a friendly reminder to be careful out there. Less than scrupulous folks take advantage of wild lands that see little human activity during much of the year.
Texas deer hunters discover 18K marijuana plants
Madison County Sheriff Travis Neeley says a group of hunters were setting up deer blinds when they discovered the plants on Friday. The sheriff’s office eventually confiscated 18,400 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $9 million.
Luckily, anyone who had been around tending the plants wasn’t there when they were discovered. Always look for signs of trespassers and squatters when returning to private lands. Many public lands are also used for operations like this set up deep in the brush far from prying eyes… right where hunters go to get away from the crush of people when gun season opens up.
