I hear ya, Iím sure its just like what you have. Our ODFW is completely infiltrated with bark humping hippies that DO NOT want us hunting! The only reason they allow us to is for their budget!
Now they are closing all the roads (which can be a good thing) knowing our aging hunting population cannot hike 5 miles off the road to hunt any more. Heck my 87 year old grandfather has given up, he is disabled but still lives to hunt. We would take him road hunting (legal in OR fo disabled people) to get him out, now with the road closure, NO HUNTING FOR HIM!
Like it or not it is becoming a rich man sport! I can pay to go hunting on a lease, but choose to follow my dream of a DIY 30" public land Mulie. He will be standing next to the unicorn
Heck, we are at the point we hunt are area every three years. The west side is a free for all. A Mature Black tail deer is very difficult to come by out west. The west side of Oregon is completely shut down do to fire danger. Second weekend of season and most hunters are stuck sitting home watching football!
Sorry for the rant....This is the wrong place I am sure, But that really is a nice buck. If they grew on trees over here I would have one on the wall!
