This morning my brood cows did not come up for feed. I filled the hay rings last night before we got any rain. They where all here then. So just as I got chores done I get a call from the Local DNR guy that my cattle where out in the DNR ground behind my place. So I walked back to see where/what was going on.

Sure enough found where the fence had been cut. Found the entrails of a deer and a broke arrow. Looks like a bow hunter/poacher. Looks like a big buck was shot from a stand in my pasture. I found where the stand had been in a tree and followed the drag marks to where the deer was shot. It must have been a pretty good sized one. Whoever shot the deer was not strong enough to lift it over the fence so they cut the woven wire fence. I would say right at dusk Sat. night.

So my cows (102 head) found the hole this morning early. The DNR has over 1200 acres of real rough ground right behind my farm. Their ground is kind of land locked in that they have an access road that is almost a mile long to get back into the ground. So even thought they where out they where not on any heavily travel road.

So the DNR guy blocked the road while I repaired the fence. Then as we went to get the cows back in the county Sheriff showed up. Someone had called him that the cattle where out. I had walked back to the house and got my loader tractor and some fence supplies earlier. I called the cows up to the tractor. They came running. They are used to the tractor bringing them feed. So all we had to do was walk them down the DNR lane to the end of it where I have a gate. I had called my youngest son and he brought over my pickup and blocked the road and opened the gate so the cattle could not go anywhere but in the pasture. My son walked back to where we where. The sheriff called another Deputy that was close to help us keep the cattle out of the grassed area around where they are building a camp ground and rest rooms. They just have/had the buildings studded and covered with a roof.

So the deputy and my son got ahead of us and blocked the cattle from the camping area. The sheriff and I where walking behind the cattle slowly letting they work their way out the drive.

We had the cattle just started down the drive way past the camp ground when we hear a squad car coming down the lane fast with lights an full siren blaring. It was another idiot deputy sheriff. He just about ran into the front cattle. Then he set there with the siren going full bore. Those cattle where scared out of their minds. They turned around and ran full out right through the new camp grounds. I was able to keep my feet under me but the sheriff was not as lucky. He slipped and fell down. None of the cattle stepped on him but a few jumped him. While they where jumping him they had their fertilizer attachment going full bore. It had also started to rain right as we started all of this. So he was laying in mud and getting covered with manure. He was real happy!!!

My son and the other Deputy got the cattle turned to the back of the DNR ground. I helped the Sheriff up and cleaned him off a little. About that time the deputy that caused all the problem came over. The Sheriff decked him!! LMAO I do mean decked the idiot. The sheriff then hand cuffed the fool and threw him into the back of the squad car he had driven in.

I went over to see what all had been messed up. Plus I was giving the cattle some time to settle down. My son and the first Deputy had them in the back corner of the DNR ground. The new camp ground rest room building in now on the ground. The cattle spooked out of their minds had ran right through the building. They had broken too many of the studs for the roof to stay up. So about a 20 x 40 building laying flat.

We go back out the lane to see how the idiot got around my truck and the gate. He had shut the gate and pushed my truck around with the squad car. I wanted a shot at the idiot then but the Sheriff would not let me hit him.

So we got everything set back up. My son and the first deputy slowly drove the cattle back toward the lane. This time the Sheriff and I blocked them from getting to the camp grounds. The cattle went right out the lane and back into my pasture.

The sheriff went to take care of his idiot and I drove the cows up to the barns. We checked the cows over real good and there are no serious injuries to any of them. A few minor cuts but we treated them and they should heal well.

The sheriff came back out about two hours ago. He does not know who is going to be responsible for the damage to the DNR buildings. My cattle did the damage but his deputy caused them to do it. I called my insurance guy and he says I am covered either way.

The guy/gal I really want to have a talk with is the Deer hunter that cut my fence. If I find him he will wish he just gets knocked out!!!!

This is why I do not allow any hunting on any of my ground by non-family members.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. It is his stupid little deputy with the siren. Evidentally nobody invited him so what is he doing out there anyhow? Take it out of his pay or make him rebuild. Not your fault your cows got out.

The deputy probably deserved it, but in today's world striking a employee. Hope he enjoyed his stint as sheriff because he is probably history now.

If it wasn"t so serious it would be funny...
Always find it humorous when there"s a accident or problem in a populated area, and the cops try to apprenend a cattle or a bunch of cattle. Never do well. Sheriff was right to handle the deputy that way - If I was the sheriff, the deputy would be looking for a new job - maybe Walmart security! In retrospect, I bet you were secretly laughing!

Had a truck turn over recently, lost a few, others had to be removed from truck... News man said they had six or seven farmers on scene and would have things under control within the hour... Nuff said.

Wow, I feel lucky we never have that kind of adventure with our illegally trespassing deer hunters.

I am sure there are plenty of level-headed young men/women in your county that would make good deputies. If your High Sheriff has any sence, he will be recruiting a replecement for that looney tune!!

My problem is power line right of ways. Duke Energy runs a transmission line through my farm, and deer hunters think it is public land. I have been told so. When I chase hunters out they ask me "where am I sposed to hunt?" Ellis Kinney

That is one of the best stories I have heard in a long time. I am sorry about the cattle, but the deputy issue was classic.

"While they where jumping him they had their fertilizer attachment going full bore."

Laughing That there's funny, I don't care who ya are!

Ok, there has got to be some kind of advance "put down your cup and swallow the coffee" warning when a fella posts something like that.....I can only spew coffee on my computer so many times before there's going to be damage done.

I'm sorry for the damages, it's sad a few poachers ruin things for others. Hope you catch the idjit.

This mentality of "oh, I can go anywhere to hunt that has woods" baffles me. I don't show up at some guy's house in town and park my truck in the yard and wander around looking for stuff in his back yard. So why is it okay in the country!?

You want to hunt -- get permission or rent/buy some land. Otherwise; tough luck.

Great story, JD;

I could just see the sheriff and then the deputy get decked. Sorry about the poachers. I have always been treated well by Iowa farmers when asking to hunt. Very rarely turned down. I usually go alone with just my bird dog. Try to take Michigan apples or stop at a local bakery for a "Thank You" gesture.

We have a ROW that divides our property too. I leased the portion that crosses our part. Best $17.50 I ever spent. Doesn't keep all the tresspassers, quad ridrs and snowmobilers out, but it helps and I can fence it as long as I leave a gate for electrical repair equipment.

Sorry about your incident even though I had to laugh. City slickers think you have to whoop it up when you herd cattle. They probably got it from the westerns. Back when we had stock cows they got out while my city born and bred former college roomy was visiting. He came along with me to help get them back in. When we got out of the pickup the first thing he did was run at them waving his arms. I got him stopped before the cows spooked and everything went well after that. Jim
