Dove hunters proned out on private land adjacent to Goodfellow AFB. Would like to hear the Air Force side of the story.

USAF guards detain dove hunters on private property

I'd also like to hear the other side of the story. Seems like, if it's that close to the base, they might have tried to give a heads up to the base or something. Or start hunting from a different direction. I don't know. Might not be any winners in this situation.

If they had an issue with the hunters, show up and talk about it. But putting law abiding citizens on the ground is uncalled for.

They have a fence that clearly separates military from private land. What happened was bs especially since they had just had a meeting with them that morning including the media talking about how important hunting was to the economy in that area.

Imagine your anger/surprise if a game warden had you laying prone on private property on an anthill and released you 30 minutes later without a warning or ticket.
That's fully denying someone due process.
Unless something comes out that the hunters were peppering buildings or vehicles on the base, this is really, really bad.

I get it. A bunch of white males carrying weapons in military-type clothing in close proximity to a military installation is a threat to security. - I should write headlines for CNN.


If you don't think our hunting heritage is at risk, think again.

could you imagine laying on asphalt for 30 minutes in 100 degree heat and not allowed to move.

I wonder how many of the base security boys were Texans.

Probably had some overzealous LT thinking west central Texas was the grounds of the next Islamic Tet Offensive performed by a sleeper cell of redneck imposters.

Even worse, could you imagine being the land owner? He was one of the hunters that was proned out!

30 minutes to figure out that they were dove hunters? Thought maybe the shotguns, dove ammo and older gentlemen dressed in camo may have helped expedite that conclusion.

Well, when I was in the USAF, the Security Forces weren't always the smart ones! wink

They need to do that when "hunters" refuse to pick up hulls. Let them taste the gravel
