Re: Montana Deer and Elk Hunting

Please don't group all out of staters as unethical idiots. I drew my first out-of-state tag ever for Montana, this year, filled both my muley and elk. I did so ethically with the help of knowledge gained through several years on this forum, and had a great time with the locals (and was told I was a hell of a shot and welcome back any time).

There's always bad seeds. I think a lot of people behave when they are near people that know them, but act a lot diifferent out of state or even out of their own county. Sort of like when they post on the internet vs at work.

Re: Montana Deer and Elk Hunting

Kudos to you. Problem is there not all like you. Your right there is bad seeds in every group. Beleive me when I say it's a problem in my state when I was born and raised here. Hell I met 6 people that had never seen what an elk looks like. It would just be nice if people would educate themselves a little more than coming over and shooting at moving twigs.

Re: Montana Deer and Elk Hunting

Rocky: Yes it's ugly! Talk about a workout. I backpacked in this year and set up camp with about 80 lbs. of gear on my back. We hike in water and tents during the summer. We were about 6 miles in from no 4 wheeler or road. Nobody there the day before the opener. Opening morning met some angry alabama guide that was mad that we were in HIS SPOT! I told him a thing or 2. I'd been hunting the area for the last 10 years and assured him it was more my spot but I'd be happy to share it considering it is NATIONAL FOREST. Sorry, this year left a bad taste in my mouth.

They should all have to pass a idiot course before they ca apply for tags,that would weed out 97% of them.

I have to agree here. In our area the local people do hate the out of staters. But it is because they can not get away with the usual poaching, dumping and other crap they get away with the rest of the year (Too many people around). But we are not quite the destination hunt area that MT and Northern ID are.
You would think if someone were serious enough to travel that far to an area than they would be somewhat on the ball.

Unfortunatly, the residents of Montana do have thier own idots. Driving their 4 wheelers up the ridges, shooting signs along the roads, poaching animals, and just generally being slobs. It is not just an out of state problem.
