This is something that is happening here as well, last season we had a couple of hunter fired on and 2 cookers were arrested at the hospital. No charges brought on the hunters.

The situation was even worse in Missouri, where the number of meth incidents jumped from 439 in 1999 to 2,885 in 2003 before falling slightly (to 2,788) in 2004. In those years nearly 70 percent of the dumps were found in the Mark Twain National Forest, one of the best places to hunt in the state.

The Highway Patrol has done three meth cleanups on my property. Two of them were actively cooking.:eek:

Since the election of a new sherriff and the formation of the Meth Coalition in Adair Co., the problem has moved away. :)

The fellow that was cooking on my place is now residing in the state pen.:dancin:

Sad thing........

Question for the lawyers or anyone who knows law.
If a person is trespassing on your land making meth and he attempts to shoot you, do you have the right to take him out? I believe a person should be able to and second, what are the chances of a person going to prison for shooting said turd?

If a low lifecomes on my property and opens fire you can bet if I have a gun I will return fire! Already happened when tresspassers decided to ruin my days hunt by firing off a few rounds. I returned fire just over the hill they were hiding behind.

Well I'll post it again. This is why the MDC telling us that we cannot have a sidearm during bowseason is total B.S. I think our safety is a little more important than worrying if one of us is going to be tempted into using our .45 to take a pot shot at a deer. I dont want to stumble onto a meth lab with nothing but my bow.
