Ghost camp
« on: October 08, 2017, 06:51:54 AM »
Is this one of those ghost camps?

Prime spot, taped off, $10 tent flapping in the breeze.  How long can you reserve public land in this manner?

About as long as it would take to set up my camp right next to their tent.

Not much different than hauling your trailer or RV up a week or two early and leaving it empty to claim your turf.

One small tent in the entire area. I'd take down the ribbon and set up. Public land.

Looks like abandoned garbage on public land.  I just clean that stuff up.

I agree in taking it down but be smart. Don't camp there. Let an unsuspecting camper take the space after you cleaned it up. That way when the guy and his buddies that left the tent show up in the middle of the night drunk you don't have do deal with the threats and cursing. You can camp a couple of spaces over and watch the fireworks.

It certainly doesn't look like any place special.  Why would anyone have heartburn over it?  Just move on and find your own place to camp.

This is possibly the most unsportsmanlike thing I have ever read.There is something wrong with this guy.

Contact an LEO, let them know it's suspicious and let them make the decision. When the guys show up, let them know the LEO took it down and give them his card.

All I want to know is what kind of tent is that?  Maybe it's the angle, but I can't figure out what the heck is going on there.  It looks like parts from four different tents somehow erected to a single structure.

I agree with calling the local game warden or police, you can probably get him to come through and pull it out and nail his card to a tree there.
