OK guy's I have to chime in here.  I'm not trying to start a hornets nest here, but I have been reading stories of members hearing about unlawful hunting/fishing activity from this site.  My intent is not to put anyone down, but I must say that almost every post that reports the illegal activity ends with "i just had to vent, or something similar to that", but nothing seems to get reported! :bash:

The people that are out there doing horrific acts such as this one, will only continue to cause land to be closed off, new laws being enacted(that we all bitch and complain about), roads closures, reduced bag limits, and the list goes on and on.  

Folks WE MUST POLICE OURSELVES otherwise we are not going to have anything to pass on to our kid's, or in my case my Grand Kids, because these people are not getting reported like they should be!  The animals we hunt and fish deserve that respect, period!  They sure as heck can't do it!

In closing I want to reiterate that I am not trying to start a shet storm here, just trying to let everyone know that we need to join together and weed out the bad so we have a strong heritage for future generations.  Happy hunting and fishing everyone and be safe out there!  John



 

Ok come over and we'll both walk accross the street to my neighbors house and demand the contact information for his cousin, then drive to his house and demand a full explination of why he was unable to pack the meat of his animal out. I have reported several acts... most recently the showerbags that shot at deer at 830pm and then spotlighted me two nights in a row as I was walking back to my truck through a wheat field.

I was just talking to an "acquaintance" who said:
"My cousin just got a big bull with his bow, he had this huge rack in the back of his truck, he didn't get the meat.."
"He didn't get the meat?", I asked.
Reply,"He was helping somebody else pack meat out"

Ok so it's a shaky, third or fourth hand story but have respect for the animal for Christ sake!


Mr Mykiss, what was the point of sharing your story with us? You seem to belittle WCT's suggestion to report the possible big game violation. Do you want us all to just sigh along with you at the waste? The suggestion to report things like this is a good one in my opinion. No one is asking you to do anything more than that. All you have to do is make a call. Let wildlife deal with it.  :dunno:

. Meat first, then head...


That is what I have always understood.

Me too, what a waste.   >:(

I've done it too Joevon, sometimes bones, a cape and a quarter back to camp to get more meat sacks.  I carry one meat sack with me in my hunting daypack.  One quarter with the horns strapped on and the cape is just about a load in my smaller pack.  Whatever I can to make it a load.

Mr Mykiss, I was hoping you would not take offense to my post, because it was not intended for that.  WDFW makes it so easy for us to report offenses just like this one.  You should not have to go across the street to your neighbors to get the information, let WDFW do that, that is what they are there for.  Thanks for understanding and a bigger thank you for keeping us all posted on the investigation.  Take care, John
