Re: Montana Mule Buck
I don't really think it was a poor choice of words, it was a pretty mild version of the choice of words i would use to describe it! 7 150-170 inch deer in the back of a truck in a trophy area that is on the decline seems pretty irresponsible to me, and the season isn't even over! Subsistence hunting, I think not, more like taking advantage of a handout that should have been taken away a long time ago. Biologists and game wardens just shook their heads when the topic arose, game wardens just hope that they have a white man in the truck so they can confiscate the deer, and they said they get about 3 a year. The hurt that they have put on the moose was another topic of discussion. We may have had ancestors that enjoyed hunting the valley before it was a trophy unit as well, lewis and clark probably did some shooting there, should i cry for a gimmie tag? My family is from Colorado, generations grew up there, does colorado let me come back and hunt with special priveleges? NO! It's a bunch of BS! They aren't hunting there like they did before bolt action rifles and optics, that can sure change with the times, but Montana's best shot at a real trophy mule deer hunt shouldn't change anything huh? The yare more than happy to live with that new 4x4 that our tax dollars bought, drive it right up to a hunting area that our liscense money maintains, on roads that our tax dollars had built, and take whatever they want out of it, just like their ancestors did? i don't think so! Seems like things change for everybody with the times, time for our government to to quit giving handouts and let everybody succeed or fail on an even playing field, we are all US citizens after all aren't we? Apparently the feeling of entitlement is the problem, cause our government let it happen.
