Why is there even rules?
« on: May 06, 2015, 06:46:43 AM »
Went up joe watt this last wknd. old people tracks old veichle tracks and it took me about 20 mins to get up to the top flats and there were 2 camps already set up looked like they had been there for days. usualy between myself my kids and my buddies we pick up around 20 horns or so in 5 days, this yeay we picked up 5 freakin 5. The game department needs to step it up a notch since horn hunting has gotten to be such a money maker for the guys that dont have a real job and all they want to do is rape the woods for all its natural resources and make money off of it. I hate to take my kids out and have them not find anything its a real demotivator for them, but they still have a good time i suppose.

Were the camps within the winter boundary?  I was told the back roads such as taneum were open to travel.  I expected some people had already walked the country west and north of the boundary. You know what everyone says about the lack of snow and how the elk scattered.  I was frustrated cause i should have been first to walk across those great open flats and there was nothing, not even a rag horn, and a thousand elk tracks all over the ground.
