re: Slob hunters

Sounds like oregon these days. This isnt the first time ive heard this or seen it in a lil different situation than yours. Its pretty bad in here on the coast too. When you have to go out at 1 or 2 in the morning to block the road to make sure you get a bull its really disappointing. Almost got in a fist fight few years back when we shot two bulls on the ridge line one drt and the other died 50 yards on the backside and we walk up to someone trying to claim are bull. Gives us this story he shot it from 300 yards open sight 30-30. Just to aviod problems we gave him the bull and got the hay wire out and got the other one out and loaded up. Then the guy had the balls to ask to borrow the hay wire and help gettin the other bull out. Its sad how bad hunting and the people have gotten around oregon.

Glad to hear you and your kids came out ok.

re: Slob hunters

By no means has Oregon cornered the market on unethical and/or arrogant hunters that bully. I have hunted turkey twice in the past three years. On multiple occasions, I have had hunters walk right through my set up at first light. This is after I had informed them we were already in that location.

One hunter said they had waited several years to draw the area and had a right to be there! Technically, they were correct. "Should I do this?" has given way to "Can I legally get away with this?".

I just got back from a deer hunt in Northern AZ. My plan was to sit about 100 yds off a water hole that showed some promise. Because it is difficult to see my natural blind from the road, I put up a sign that stated "Hunter on Stand at Tank" about 300 yds from the water hole. I had a couple of road hunters that came up the road, stopped at the sign, looked at me for several minutes through bino's (and yes - one scoped rifle) then turned around and left. The last group drove past my sign, got out at the water hole and then all four of them took turns ******* in different spots around the tank. They laughed, gave me the bird then left - taking my sign with them.

It is becoming a bigger problem each year and Game & Fish seem either unable or reluctant to do much about it.

re: Slob hunters

There isn't elk or deer that is worth putting my family or anyone else's in harms way. I have had guys scope me before in deep timber and it was at the least unnerving.

That being said if they don't have balls enough to take off their jacket and square up with me like a man than I don't have any use for them.

Stealing another hunters game is as low as it gets....out here it happens from time to time and its a damned shame.

The number of idiots out and about in Montana during rifle season will make you rethink hunting that's for sure...Just have to try and get away from them and stay out of the cross fire.

I am sorry that you had this happen and that your boys had to witness these low life's actions.

re: Slob hunters

I am apt to take the philosophy of WildRose on this one. Disengage, gather information, and call law enforcement.

"Yes Game Warden dispatch I am in need of assistance. I believe my kids and I am in danger. I was out hunting and shot an elk while hunting with my kids. We were in the process of tracking and recovering the elk to meet the legal requirements of immediately tagging a game animal. While in the process several unknown men started to point their rifles at us from a close distance. I have no reason to believe the rifles were unloaded. I have no idea what their intentions are. Are they trying to shoot me because I was successful with getting an elk? I donít know. Are they purposely using a weapon likely to cause death or severe bodily injury to frighten me away from an elk I am legally making an attempt to tag? I donít know. In either case I would like to make a formal complaint and pursue charges for these acts. My kids and I have a legal right to pursue and legally tag game animals without being threatened by these actions. Can you please dispatch a Game Warden or other law enforcement officer to assist. Thank you, I know my kids will feel much more comfortable knowing their safety is in good hands with your law enforcement officers. I will be at this location waiting by my truck. If the situation changes I will call you back immediately. Additionally here is my cell number."
It can be this simple, stack the odds of recovering the animal and discouraging unlawful behavior in your favor all the while staying safe.

re: Slob hunters

It is called RESPECT to other hunters.

Three of us found a good spot for Canadian Bull moose in Northern Ontario.
In the next day, we got up early and arrived to the spot before sunrise. About an hour later, 4-5 hunters arrived to our spot and looked around. One of my group informed them that three of us are in that area.
Other group just ignored us and walked and sat 100 yards away. They did not respect us. It says in the hunting regulations book. Respect other hunters.

At that time, I do not want them to shoot moose in my spot/area, I felt like I will shoot my rifle in the air and scared the moose away therefore they have to find another spot but I didn't. Eventually, they left and never came back to our spot.
