Got a problem with drinking beer in the deer blinds during deer season. Finding beer cans in stands that are open to all members. No one admits to it. I find this very a serious safety problem, other hunters travel to and from other stands in front of their line of fire. Does anyone else have this problem, if so how do you handle it? I drink myself, so it's not an anti alcohol deal--just safety. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Don't have a choice, no way to get to your area without traveling--either walking or ATV. Most are pipeline.

Have each one sign on a log what stands they hunt in and when. If it isn't in the group "rules", you may want to get everyone together and tale a vote. You could have trespassers, that may be an excuse to push the rule.

I'm not a drinker per se, never had a problem with it with the guys I hunted with, but have seen a few that are not mature enough to see the difference from enjoyment and safety for everyone involved.

We had that problem once. Turned out it was the landowner and his buddies hunting out of our stands when we weren't there.

Had the issue once. Didn't take a lot of research to figure which cooler held the offenders beer brand. They weren't allowd to re-up for the following season. Had no problem telling them why. It was clearly stated in the contract they had signed.

Put in the lease contact that if you drink before sundown you are prohibited from hunting that afternoon no exceptions. Break this rule and you have ended your hunting season no exceptions.

It's already stated in contract about drinking while hunting, caught and you're gone for good right then. Don't think it has to come to absolutely no drinking during the day. Personally, I don't drink anything until after the evening hunt. If I find someone has had too much to drink, they stay in camp. 1,2,4 or 6 beers, what does it matter. Alcohol and a loaded gun just won't cut it. I have no problem removing anyone for this violation and they know it.

Are you the property owner? I would suspect most problems probably arise when mr. deer camp cop starts telling other grown men what to do like they are children.

Some have to be treated that way, he did say it was a "1 strike your out" in the contract.
