Shed hunters shot at.
« on: April 12, 2024, 07:02:27 AM »
This article is nuts. Getting shot at while shed hunting? Wow.

I would be for a shed hunting license if it wasnít just a money grab. If the revenue actually went to more enforcement in the woods that would be great. I get over run with trespassers during shed season. And the closed roads next to me get hammered by guys on motorized pit bikes driving in.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

You fire warning shots at me you better be really good at concealment and cover cause you just picked a fight your most likely going to loose

People are crazy...
This  goes back to the do you Carry in the woods thread. And this is why I'm always packing a rifle. Besides training like you Hunt I prefer not to be outgunned

And no I don't like the license to shed hunt idea. It's recreation and we already pay enough to do that on public land.

Don't need to implement a license, just ban the sale of antlers. The guys going for a walk and collecting a few for their pile aren't the problem

Middle ground here - have a license requirement for the sales but the guy collecting a few for his own use is good to go.

:yeah:

They are technically running a business and I personally think it should be treated as such.  The amount of lawlessness (trespassing, wildlife harassment, assault and intimidation) that goes on with some areas that I used to shed hunt has gotten exponentially worse since it essentially became big business. 

These guys that are out there intentionally "jumping" the deer herds and stressing out the animals just to get them to drop their sheds.  I about got into a very serious situation once when a guy kept pushing this 170's 4 point.  The buck had its tongue hanging out and laboring and the damn guy wouldn't leave it alone.

Just wondering how a $100 license is going to lessen the pressure on the animals or insanity of the commercial guys...

The minute someone fires in my direction on purpose, they're going to wish, they'd gone fishing that day.

I'm not in Washington at the moment, and haven't been able to shed hunt this year, but I do have two cents on the shed hunting license. Why make more laws/licenses when your not enforcing the ones you already have? Shooting at people is already illegal. Pressuring/harassing wildlife is already illegal. Trespassing is already illegal. If those rules would be enforced, would licenses make any difference?

This was my thought as well.  I'm certainly not going to just continue shed hunting cause "Screw em".  I'd prefer not to be killed.

This story seams a little fishy to me.   :twocents:

And to assume it's other shed hunter's is slightly ignorant.

Drug cartel's have long used NF for business. Doing erad back in the day we used to come across allot of crazy stuff in the NF and DFW land.

Not to mention a handful of off grid living crazies that set up shop in weird spots.

For a young guy you're awful smart.  :tup:

People so young who have common sense such as you will have a lifetime of frustration that others will over complicate straight forward things.
