Locked Out by Muckleshoots
« on: November 21, 2020, 07:25:10 PM »
I had a friend today get locked out of our own public land (Snoqualmie National Forest) by the Muckleshoots. He was up looking for Christmas trees and doing some late buck hunting. He said they locked the gate right in front of them. When he asked them what they were doing, they replied we can go up here and you can't. He says he confronted them and told them no, this is a national forest road and the land behind it is national forest. Said they just mean mugged him and locked it anyways.

This is off FS70. I believe he said Forest Road 701. I looked at OnX and it does lead to a bunch of national forest land.

Curious if anyone else was up there and witnessed/experienced it? I told him to write some letters/emails. Sounds like bullchit if true. I have no reason to doubt him.

I don’t know, but could that be part of the Hancock land the Muckleshoots bought?

Wonder if it was the 7010 gate by the bridge? If so, that’s a seasonal gate, but it’s early for it to be locked. I’d research the area if it was me, the mucks did close off a section of land that we used to be able to hunt.

According to my friend, the area the 3 Indian gentlemen prevented him from going into is an area he has been in several times and is one of the areas the Forest Service promotes as a Christmas tree harvest area when you buy your permit. Based on our conversation, it is National Forest land and not tribal land.

My buddy said the FS posted a closure that wasn't there this morning. It was the 7010 rd. I tried to attach a screenshot of what I just found. Not sure if it will work.

Why are they closing an area for a "wildlife closure" during late buck? Now hunters can't access all that land. At least, non-native ones. My friend said the Indian guys were clearly hunting.

Bullchit to be limiting access when our options are already limited. Especially since it creates an uneven playing field. Some people clearly have keys.

Interesting.  That road does go through Muxkleshoot land before getting into the FS.  It almost seems like some one didn't know the regs and locked it early.  I am going to ask a few people that I know that can give me an answer.

Well this is a load of BS!  That gate closes normally on the 15th of dec.  I’d say some arrogant mucks knew what they were doing, the forest service has to know they were going to do this, they need to be called and called out!!  Arrogance 100% from the mucks, Im tempted to go up there with a winch and pulled that f n gate out of the way.

I was wondering why that gate was locked so early and kinda figured it had something to do with the mucks. I would have broke a toothpick off in the lock if I was ur buddy. We need to raise hell and rain the Indians back in here in Washington

Buying private ground is one thing but keeping us out of our public land is completely another

If I was used to going to that location, I would be upset but how is this any different than all the people who complain about trespassers or crossing over someones land to get to the hunting location?    If you took the landowner out of the picture, it looks different

Or buy fireworks.  Etc etc.  Dont financially support people who you feel work against you.  Unfortunately thats a LOT of the options out there.  The list of places i wont do business with is exhausting.  Some of the big ones, walmart, levis, p&g.  Anybody who is into football, bumping up rating for seahawks, ol paul allen was behind so much of our anti gun legislation, and youve supported him rooting for his sportsball team.  Its tiring and inconvenient, but at some point you have to decide to vote with your wallet and stop financing your enemies.
