JOE WATT SHED HUNTERS BEWARE!!
« on: May 01, 2016, 11:30:41 AM »
Heads up on where you decide to park!  Humped over 8 miles this morning looking for sheds (came up empty), and came back to my truck that was parked on the grass where they feed the elk in the winter, and also where RV's and horse trailers park and camp out, to find a $150 ticket on my truck for violation of the Green Dot regulation.  WTF is that??  Been parking in the same spot for 5 years and there are horse camps set up in the same area all Summer long.  I guess F&W are hard up for money, or the Warden on duty today was just pissed off because he had to work on a Sunday.  I'll be going to court on this one.

Same thing happened to me a while back on opener of deer. Pulled off the road down a little skid road to glass. There was a watering trough for horses and just two weeks prior there was a big camp. Warden came out and gave me a ticket for being off green dot road. I read regs closer as to distsnce off green dot and almost every camp could have been written up but weren't. Really made me  :bash:

You're sposed to park in the middle of the road and block the gate!!! Didn't you know that? :chuckle: Are you sure someone didn't take the ticket off their rig and put it on yours?

The fine money goes to the county not WDFW.

It's not a traffic citation. There are no traffic violations in RCW 77 (the fish and wildlife code).

Not sure exactly where you parked but i do know new signs were put up at the end of last season in some areas.Sounds like you were in the area where the elk rubs are in the grass where they feed.New signs down that about 25 feet off the road.  :dunno:

It's a non-traffic natural resource infraction. Just like a barbed hook or hunter orange citation.

Out where we elk in the green dot system we can't be farther than 100 feet off the road or its ticket time, so 100ft and below were good. How far off the road were ya.

Wow that's harsh.. Are you saying a parking ticket counts towards losing your hunting rights? If so it would be lawyer time for me..
