    I wonder how they figure out who is flying planes during hunts. I mean, it's legal to fly a plane, just can not use it for taking wildlife. It's like any other law they have to enforce. Lots will slip thru the cracks, some will be busted, the major offenders usually get caught or quit doing it.

    Do you think the "average hunter" ( guys not on this site) use trail cams? I would venture to say most guys I know that I would call hobby hunters barely know what trail cameras do. A trail camera ban will not affect them at all. If anything, I would say it will hit the guide services the hardest, (atleast the ones that use then extensively) and next would be the guys that would be on hunting forums. The guys that put in for hunts and barely know what unit they put in for or do not even own a bow and put in for archery will not be affected negatively by a ban. As far as making then less elusive, you said a few posts back that there will be more pressure in the woods because of guides hiring college kids. Time will tell what the true outcome of this is. I await the actual language of the law ( if passed) to make an assumption on it's effectiveness. Fair chase is 100% a determination that the actual hunter has to make. With all the advancements in tech, there are lots of different opinions on it. Compared to 50 years ago, 3/4 of the shitt we use could be considered not fair chase. I see more and more states starting the trail camera ban talk and I have seen how it can negatively impact the sport, so I am ok with getting rid of mine. Small concession in the grand scheme of things. No doubt, over the next 10 years, there will be more and more regulations put into place on all aspects of hunting. With a dwindling resource and demand getting higher each year, concessions will have to be made to sustain.

    Some Thai yellow curry spice level 4 sounds legit right now!

    Its not about killing the big ones, its about killing the big ones with some fair chase involved. Atleast those college kids are out in the field actually hunting. Those college kids are not going to see alot of those nocturnal bucks either. You and I, both know big bucks are hard to keep tabs on. They can travel miles in a day very easily. That college kid better be versed in big bucks to stay on him. Its not just about guides vs regular hunters either. I think some think that's what this ban is about, its more about giving the animals a little more elusiveness back. Hopefully lowering the success rate and letting some bucks slip thru the cracks. IMO, regular Joe hunters will have a harder time killing bucks. Thats kind of what its about.

    Would anyone agree that just about every game law is very hard to enforce? The main reason is the lack of officers available to enforce the laws on the books. This is where your ethics come into play. In general, good people choose to follow the laws on the books, whether they 100% agree with them or not. My bow sight is not legal in a few states that I hunt, I choose to use a different sight when I hunt in those states. I have NEVER seen a warden, so I know that chances of me getting caught with my illegal sight there are very minimal, but they have laws and I choose to follow them. Same goes for my ML in other states, not all states allow scopes or some ignition systems. The whole unenforceable, so most will not follow the law is pure BS in my opinion.

    Thats the beauty of it all. You can choose to say F you to them and they can choose to require the masks. Masks are silly imo but I respect the places that require them and wear one or try and avoid the place in lieu of a place that doesnt require them.

    COVID Vaccine Info

    Funny, a guy at work has double masked since like Xmas. He's been the guy who has gotten sick the most this year. Can't be good to keep recycling your air.

    Primitive ML seasons would be a great next step.

    Desert Bowhunting without the illegals

    Thanks for the post! That is exactly what I suggested in another thread. I like the idea of mandatory harvest reporting within 48 hours. Adopting a system similar to bear and lion is exactly what needs to be done. I love it. I hope more sportsman get behind this and make our voices heard. If we stand quiet, we will lose OTC bowhunting in the next 10 years no doubt.

    Desert Bowhunting without the illegals

    I can not get the link to the sportsmans group proposal to work. Anyone know the cliff notes? Something needs to change quickly or our deer herds are going to continue their rapid decline. Sucks, but I see OTC all but gone in the next 10 years. glass half full, it might make rifle draw odds considerably better.

    Whats the deal with unit 10?

    It's Antelope! You can literally glass them up from 10 miles away pretty easy. Plan on getting up there a week before your hunt to get the lay of the land. Good luck on your hunt.

    Whats the deal with unit 10?

    I would 100% buy the access. You will regret not spending the 110$ if you are having a hard time locating a good antelope outside of the Bo. Why restrict your hunting area for such a small price? Seems like a no brainer for me.

    Thoughts on High fence hunts

    I could give 2 shitts. If a guy feels good about shooting a high fenced giant, who the heck am I to tell him he can not. Shoot away. Not much different than hiring 3 guide services for the auction or raffle tags.
