Bad management at Ford Ranch

I hunt a small farm next to the Ford ranch. I had a bad experience with a person from the ford ranch running property boundary fence lines at peak hunting times. At 715 am and 515 pm they would make a pass along the property line to harass us and drive the deer off. I would be upset if I was hunting by myself, but I was really upset because I took my two youngest children huntjng to try and get their first deer. I have a 7 and 5 y/o that I had to explain to why someone would want to drive our deer off. I have been fighting cancer for the last two years and my prognosis doesn't look that great. I was trying to make great memories with my children only to be ruined by the ford ranch. Several years ago I shot a decent buck that ran 150 yds jumped the fence and laid dead 5 ft into the ford ranch property. I called and spoke with a nice lady saying she would send a ranch hand to retrieve the deer. Ten minutes later Mr. Forrest Armke called back saying no one was gonna get my deer for me and I wasn't allowed to go on their property to retrieve the deer. I told them they could have the deer I didn't want it to go to waste. He informed me he wasn't concerned about the deer and in no way was I to be allowed on their property and hung up. So beware if you plan on making a hunt on the Ford Ranch in Melvin Texas what kind if ranch manager he really is.
