    100 Books every man should read

    I think the "Fountain Head" may be a tad-bit better than "Atlas Shrugged" and definately should be on the list. I did love them both though.

    23 Late Archery input

    Had this same tag last year. Very tough hunt. I was on bulls everyday and was willing to fill my tag with anything with horns. I went home empty handed and swore to never put in for that hunt again. TOUGH HUNT!!!! The good thing is that there are tons of elk, bad thing is getting to them. Previous post were right on about weather. Hope that it is dry! Bulls were hitting water everyday and stopped immediately after it rained the weekend before the hunt. Good luck and PM me if you want some help or advice. I know the unit well, I live in Young.
  6. "You say you work in there everyday. Will you honestly say that you don't know of employees who ever check their trail cams or did a little shed hunting during their lunch break? I have no problem with them doing this, heck I enjoy seeing the pictures and sheds. However, they have benefitted from vehicle access that is denied to others." My profession puts me in primo hunting country pretty regularly. I keep my eyes open and find great hunting spots. My hunting hobby definitely benefits from my profession, and the only way it wouldn't is if I closed my eyes. Lastly your argument sounds a little whiney and liberal. Its not fair is it? Get a new job.
  7. Im calling BS on this. I am not saying it never has happend, but I work in the Riparian area EVERY DAY. I have NEVER seen a off duty BP, Sheriff or BLM employee in their personal vehicle hunting behind locked gates. Also those keys are accounted for pretty hard (I have one that is inventoried pretty regularly) so I doubt they are being given away to their friends. I do know some that hunt it, but they walk in, just like you or I. The reason that there is so much vehicle traffic in that area is because smugglers use those areas to drive around the checkpoints and the SD and BP work the area to partol the area for them. Yes, it is true that occasionaly BLM will allow biologists or others in there in their private vehicles but I personally cannot comment on that. If you ever see a BP or deputy or BLM hunting either on-duty or off duty in their private vehicle, I would suggest that you call BLM dipatch or their respective agency and they can be held responsible for it. You can call BS on this, if you want. I am not saying that this is an open highway of hunting vehicles, I am just saying it happens, and it is not a rarity when it does. Some of the people who have done, and still do this are friends and I am not wanting to cause them any problems. My pointis simple. If it is in the public's best interest to close a road, close it to all, official and non official vehicles. If the use of a road is not damaging to an area, let the road be open. Keys are inventoried, and regulations are in place, but people will be human and things happen. Some gates also have combination locks on them rather than locks with inventoried keys. You say you work in there everyday. Will you honestly say that you don't know of employees who ever check their trail cams or did a little shed hunting during their lunch break? I have no problem with them doing this, heck I enjoy seeing the pictures and sheds. However, they have benefitted from vehicle access that is denied to others. One other point, if driving in the closed area is harmful, why would BLM build a new building two miles past the locked gates? I am not looking to cause problems for anybody here. I am just saying that we already have closed/restricted roads and on those roads there is traffic that is official, unofficial, and illegal. If they are to be closed, close them completely, if use is going to be allowed by some, allow it by all. Right or wrong, it's just my opinion. Im calling BS on this also. You may have heard rumors from friends. Thats a pretty small community of people your talkin about, so your not protecting anyone, your just accusin. I think that someone who works in the area every day is a pretty creditable source. I used to work down there and I also had the same experience as Bradne. I dont know him, but I havent worked there in a while. Anyway, you better be dam sure you know what your talkin about before you start slingin poo. There are alot of really good people that work down there. Just because an employee that works in the area kills a good buck doesnt mean he cheated, lied, broke the law, and used keys/special privledges. You really dont know what you are talkin about.

  13. Great buck! On a pack out a couple years ago my dad and I chose the creek bed route over the direct route up hill. It turned out to be a real bad descision (dead buck @ 10:00 am, back to the truck @8:00 pm). Dad was almost able to talk me into spiking in the creek and finishing in the morning. Your story brought back great memories of that hunt.
