This is the second time in the past few months when I simply state they may want to check around when his name is mentioned, a THF'er who's never met the guy, never had any dealings with him, pops up and essentially questions the validity of my comment vs asking first why I made it. I will admit the other person was a bit more nasty with his keyboard.
Danny lives here in the Mound, shook his hand, sat across the table from him, looked at some of his properties and came "that close" to signing a lease with him. Given I heard/read the stories bandied about, I decided to just make sure and draw up a leasee contract for him to sign on what my expectations were as his leasee. It wasn't until I presented him with that document, did he volunteer that he had in fact leased the dove hunting rights for the property I was signing up for, to someone else. Somehow I just don't see how you forget a detail like that when you're signing a no exception year round hunting lease agreement with someone? Do you? My personal experience above, lines up exactly with most any story you'll find floating around.
I have no axe to grind, which is why I just advise folks to ask around vs launching off in to story.
