USFS and WDFW have teamed up, this is to drum up a trail of violations, the goal is to revoke permits on public lands due to these violations.

I know a lot of hunters are really perturbed at finding cows after nov 1 messing up their bait piles and mineral dumps, and will glady go along with destroying a way of life for ranchers using these permits.

I used to work cows on many of these allotments for several ranchers, cows don't always come off range when you want them too, they split off in small groups and can be difficult to round up in a timely fasion.

Typically you pull salt first (but everyone is dumping salt all over the place)

Then you bait the cows to holding areas
(But everyone is dumping hay, apples and bait, and hay all over)

Then you get guys to help round em up
(But wolves, bait and mineral sites, hay piles have cows broken ip in many small groups)

Failing that, its weather that pushes them down (so much for nov 1 deadline)


I'll not participate in this scheme to destroy a way of life, ya'll do as you like, but at least be aware of your actions when you do it.

The goal is to end grazing on public lands.
They want your help to do it.

A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

Iíve always contacted the rancher personally to let them know I have found some of their critters and have helped them retrieve them.  I donít call the government for anything.

 :yeah: Anyone that thinks these government agencies are just doing it to help are crazy.  Get ahold of the rancher or donít say anything. I hope no one dials that number.

Oh it'll get dialed, every so often I'm shocked at the vitriol I hear from hunters I know towards those "f cows getting in my deer stand"

usually followed by a joke of tagging out on a beef

Ya, it'll get dialed....

Pitting one user group against the other has been the way of wdfw management for decades.  Old as the saying is, but it still applies, divide and conquer.

This has been their goal for a long time. Hopefully no hunter falls for their BS.

So what happens with the fire danger with no grazing? Is anybody even thinking about that?
