I would not want to be seen near that camp. You never know how someone might react to someone in and amongst their stuff. You never know who may have also called in the camp and then makes another call to notify LEO that that camp is now occupied and now is a good time to go nab the offender.  :twocents:
Backcountry Hunting / Etiquette Question - Unoccupied Backcountry Camp
« Last post by joedawjes on Today at 03:03:00 PM »
While hunting a Wilderness area, I came across a well-established hunter's camp. The camp was unoccupied. It had a green accordion sleeping pad, tarps, pots/pans, a shovel, water jugs, and an American Buffalo Silver Dollar nailed to a tree. The camp remained unoccupied for the remainder of the trip, and I didn't move my setup to the new location.

I plan to return to the area and use the hunter's camp because it's probably the best campsite in the drainage. I've identified 3 total campsites in the drainage (including the hunter's camp). In my opinion, it's fair game to use the camp so as long as I (1) don't drink their water (2) take their belongings (3) dismantle any of their setup. Basically, leave no trace within the camp...even though its existence goes against the leave no trace principle.

If the camp's founder(s) walked up while I was staying there, I would probably move. I don't think that I'm obliged to move, but I think that adding a land dispute to the mix would ruin both of our hunts because we would already be in each other's zone. I'd rather have a conversation about which areas we plan to hunt so that we're not stepping on each other's toes.

If you set up camp in a backcountry camp and the founder(s) arrive after you, what's the proper etiquette? Also, if you set up this camp, feel free to PM me. I'm happy to share my hunt plans and see if we can avoid this situation altogether.

Got one a nice 5x5 in the flow. But after hunting archery for ten years in the Gifford, it almost felt like cheating with how much bugle action goes on in there. First 3-4 hours of light and last 3-4 hrs is pretty consistent bugling. Barely enough time for a nap in between action :chuckle:
Full story is posted under my mudflow archery bull topic on this forum.

Which youth tag? boys have had the youth doe for rifle and for muzzleloader...each time the tags were filled the first day. There is a ton of public land and lots of access. It shouldn't be a probem for the youth to fill the tag. Gold creek and Black Canyon are popular spots, also look up McFarland Creek, Squaw Creek (its not called that anymore...I can't remember what they renamed it), and Billy Goat mtn...


Its now called Hunter Mtn.
