And those elk have nowhere to run because they are landlocked.

 Never heard of elk being shot from the road and left to die either. :dunno:
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Maybe landlock is the wrong term
My point was that we need to stick together as hunters and not disparraige other hunters about the way they choose to hunt

Jonathon you might want to read the whole thread if you already haven't he's not just talking about that bull they couldn't find at first but people talking about they wouldn't hunt that way and that anybody who does is not a real Hunter or that people are acting like they are their personal pets.
These are wild animals people you hunt them how you can in certain situations. Just because a person didn't hike 20miles looking for elk and then didn't stalk it in their bare feet in the snow doesn't mean they don't appreciate the animal
This is the type of thing that we as hunters should support other hunters.we are our own worse enemy

It's a bad sign to me when folks are using road/street names to reference the location of the elk herd.

I agree with what you're saying but as you know that herd is pretty much land locked by private property and it seems easiest to Just use those direction

I don't know anything about that herd.  I don't know anything about Shane Barbour other than what I've said early on in this thread and what I've read on this forum.
How many elk could there be in a landlocked elk herd that he can sell enough hunts to profit from a $20k a year lease?
I mean... even if he charges $5k a hunt, he'd have to sell 4 elk hunts worth $5k a piece just to break even. How many elk get killed off these leases yearly? I firmly believe the $20k a year lease price to be an internet rumor.

no. one elk got shot didnt die and all the other elk were given this info so now they have revolted.  :bash:
Listen everyone,Do not kill an elk because if 1 elk gets shot the other 16 bulls in the area will leave and never come back.This shane guy must be awful powerful to be able to decimate an entire herd.
If its true then i would think he runs 1 heck of a business guiding and should have rave reviews.

I'll stick together with other hunters and promote that as long as the ethics and morals are there.

I think the $20k a year per lease has to be inflated.  Maybe and this is a long maybe he is paying $1,000 a year per lease and has a 20 year lease.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Agree, still wild animals that need some form of management.  I'd rather hunters got the opportunity than have WDFW bring in some sharpshooters to kill them off on a taxpayer funded safari and then give the animals to local tribes.
The issue as I've read it over the course of the many postings about the guy is that there used to be a little bit of friends and family type hunting throughout this cluster of homes, but now he has leased a lot up and folks that traditionally would've had access get to pound sand.

I'll bet that's a lot of what's going on people who used to get to hunt there no longer can.
That's why I said good for Shane to be able to obtain those leases and run a business
