My cousins in Idaho call them the "Outdoor Channel wannabe city folk".  They can't stand the out of staters that show up in their pavement princess rigs plastered with Bone Collector and such stickers looking like they just stepped out of a Cabela's catalog.   :chuckle:  They say those are the folks who trespass, trash the woods and leave a bunch of wounded critters to rot.


that pretty much sums up the look!  :chuckle: I know many great hunters from Washington and have some family there also who are great hunters, unfortunately wa plates have a terrible name in Idaho and yes it is worse than any other state. It is the attitude of quite a few that come over. I feel like it is kill something at all costs without regard to the animails and screw anybody to do it. Yesterday I am driving back from bow hunting and check on a road leading to one of my other spots that is gated. Yep! Washington guys have the road blocked with jacked up rigs and camps and acting like nobody is getting into that spot. A guy comes out of his tent all puffed up! at about a 145lbs of terror :chuckle:. I was tired and not wanting to hunt anymore but  an out of stater will not keep me out of a spot I have been hunting 20 plus years ever! but that attitude is what is ruining it for the good guys. Btw I can four wheel to the gated road they are protecting from the bottom anyways  :chuckle:     
I see way too much of this in Chelan County.  Late archery in Swakane being the worst.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Just thought Iíd share this from the IDFG site about second tags which are sold at the nonresident price.

The second-tag program has been popular with hunters. For many years, portions of the nonresident quota of 12,815 elk tags and 15,500 deer tags went unsold. Since 2000, they have been available as second tags for residents and nonresidents alike, although the majority of second tags (about 70 percent) are sold to residents.

Iím inthat 70% . But no you guys are spot on itís the other 30% that keeps us poor Idaho folks head above water

Interesting discussion. 

It's fair for me to say this.  I've hunted most of my life.  I'm now managing and guiding (either my kids or others) more than I hunt, and the fact is Hunters are a pain in the backside.  Between trespassers, rule breakers etc, it's hard for me to even look at "hunters" positively.  The worst is the super arrogant guys with the attitude who are wrong and pissy about it.  The level of aggression seems to get worse. 

My point is that it's easy for anyone to get a negative attitude.  Best thing we all can do is to remember what we learned in hunters safety.  It's easy for someone to give us a bad name.  Know the rules, follow them, respect the game and private property, realize a doe or buck isn't worth ________ and just be respectful and kind. 

   
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

My brother in law is high up in the DNR over there and basically runs the area from Sand Point to Canada.  He has a ton of stories of out of state dudes and their lack of respect for the locals, private property,
wild game, regulations, etc.  It is the whole "it aint my back yard" thing.

You can "like" stuff via Tapatalk too, but that's a function of Tapatalk...not SMF.

A few bad apples does not spoil the bunch.

It's the bigoted attitude that all apples are bad that spoils the bunch.

This land is your land...this land is my land.

Treat the land, itís wildlife and the others who use it with respect and weíll all get along just fine.
