If you don’t know what hunter harassment is, here’s a perfect example.
These hunters are chasing pheasants on some Minnesota public land when the neighboring landowner decides to stop by for a little hunter harassment.
After parking his tractor as close as possible to the hunters, the landowner begins berating them with foul language and telling them that they are out of their minds for hunting in the area.
Luckily for these hunters, this incident of hunter harassment was caught on video and used as evidence.
Watch the video to see how it all went down.
Warning: This video contains strong language.
In Minnesota, hunter harassment is classified as “the intentional interference of the taking of wild animals” or “disturbing wild animals to prevent or disrupt their lawful taking.”
It’s clear from the video that this landowner is blatantly committing hunter harassment, a misdemeanor in the state.
After showing the video to a Minnesota DNR agent, the hunters were allowed to decide whether the landowner received a citation or a warning.
