The owner in question has sold the farm to a new person last year.Try and understand from his viewpoint what he went through, 100s of collectors trespassing on his private property every week, he did have a family there and is a private person. Bill Love apparently put the GPS to the cricket farm in a book to tell people where to hunt, so he on several occasions had Herp Society Tours arrive in convoys to hunt on his yard! Not a justification but you must agree it would be hard to live with, and he also had a Herp collection on the property in danger of being stolen, some quite expensive. From what I hear there is an older man who is the shooter, Law Enforcement is trying to catch him in the act. I ask , why hunt on private property and expect no problems, sounds dumb!
Wow...you go all the way down there for crix ? Not literally drive down there, obviously.Aren't there any farms closer to you Bill ?
Have you ever been down there ? I have a couple times. I can't speak for everyone else, but the times I was down there, we only went near the tree's lining the main road near the drainage ditches. Now I admit, that maybe that could be private property but at no time did we cross any fences or onto any yards.
As to the hundreds of people...yes...no doubt, but please don't blame Bill Love. He would pass info onto to select people but only by way of mouth. I would need to see proof of his putting stuff like that in print to believe it. Field herp.com was probably much more responsible for that GPS info getting passed around than Bill ever was.
