Was on Rokslide yesterday and a member had an encounter with a Youtuber about riding dirt bikes in areas it is closed when hunting. There is video out there of this evidence and the Youtuber fella released a podcast admitting it was him & his buddy. He kind of took the high road and blamed the buddy since he had tagged out already but the way i see it, he was aiding the hunter in calling and shouldn't of been ridding a bike. I have many thoughts on this but they really don't matter.

For the record, not trying to stir the pot or throw shade at this Youtuber. Listened to his Podcast and believe most of what he said. He seems like a good dude and everybody makes mistakes.

The issue i have is Rokslide, keeps deleting post like nothing even happened. The admin is saying we need to verify with the OP and F&G before unlocking. Seems like a big overreach for them..... They have numerous Topics bashing other people(Bowmar's being one of them which i totally get) but when it comes to there buddies, they silence them. Reminds me of CNN.

Maybe i'm out of line for posting this here but figured there is a bunch of fellas here that look on that site as well.

Yeah, I don't agree with them deleting the threads. But I can understand them not wanting 200 posts of people bashing a guy over hearsay from another hunter. Seems like they should be able to lock up a thread and have a moderator note that shows the status for anyone looking into the thread.

The road was closed to motorcycles or closed to hunting access with a motorcycle?

From what I understood, it's open to motorcycles and you can use one to get in there and set up a camp to hunt from...but you can't access the area daily by motorcycle to hunt.

Never heard of a reg like that but maybe it's normal in Idaho?  :dunno:

Idaho has some goofing motorized rules. But they are clearly spelled out in the Big Game Regs.

There is trails open for rec motorbike riders year around but when hunting, fish & game has them closed down. This applies to alot of the units in the southern units in Idaho. Been this way for years.

Not hearsay at all. There is video proof that was deleted from Rokslide. The Youtuber even admitted it on a Podcast...

The original post morning of 10/5 didn't include a video. It was posted later. Not sure when the podcast was uploaded on 10/5.

At the time of the original post and when the post was deleted it was hearsay. Now it isn't.

Not sure the timing of things when they got posted. Really didn't even want to make this post about the fella himself but felt like there needed to be a little context.

The main reason for this was to shed light on deleting video proof of something. Seems very weird to me.

no surprise that the youtuber elkshape did this at all, i read the thread on rokslide too.  he has been doing this for years in north idaho too, ive seen him slide is bike under gates and outrun the guy that actually has permision and gate keys for the area to access his cabin.  frustrating that he talks a big talk about how far back he gets,  well i guess he isnt lying, just not how its implied.

Elkshape podcast was a cop out IMO. he did admit to not knowing the rules but still was a “poor me” type attitude about it
