To the new owner of Shawnee Reef and Celeron Island, let me apologize for disturbing you this afternoon when I dared to check out a spot at least 220 yards from your guarded perch on the rocks off Shawnee Reef. After you fired your warning shot over us, I moved on down the island to get out of your way. Let me also apologize for not warning the deer hunters I saw trespassing on your island, but I’m sure they mistakenly thought this was public land like I did. I just wished him luck as he did me. You know how outdoorsmen used to do it while sharing the resource. But I understand your concern, trespassing on your island must be a problem since I heard the volley of shots about fifteen minutes after shooting time, I’m sure you must have just been chasing off some other misguided encroachers. I’m sure it must get expensive shooting over boats that get to close to your island, so if I ever see you there again, I’m just bringing you the shell I cost you today. Have a wonderful season whoever you are.
