Re: ND Looking for Sharpshooters

Man, if my economic state was just a little better I would be on this like a tall dog!!!
I would do it just because it is an opportunity to quickly improve one's ability to kill elk, which I like to do.
The amount of meat you get depends on the success of your team not your individual success, according to the facts section you may be able to get up to one whole elk based on team success, I like the idea of donating the meat to .

I don't like the lead free bullet thing for culling elk in large herd because of pass through, but I may need to start developing a load just in case.

Do you camp out or do you go out in your team, kill and return to a town, I couldn't figure it out. Is the teams so large so you can drag elk or is there going to be a hail of gun fire into a herd of elk (not cool)? So many questions, I would like to get more info in case they do it next year I may be able to get it together by then.
I think I have read every link but still need more info?
I'm surprised that they didn't get volunteered to have a wolf pack, oh wait, they want elk left in the end.

    In my opinion it's a waste of tax payers money. There are much faster and much more effective ways of culling elk in the Park. I say a round up would be that route. Just round them up with the chopper like they do with the other critter on the park, check them for age and sex, give the younger ones due shots and send them back into the park. Cull the older females that need to be culled, loaded them on a trailer and give them to Game and Fish possession for them to piece meal out to people or charites, get some money out of it while solving the problem. Then you don' t have to worry about having people come in from everywhere sign up as volunteers and break their leg and sueing the Park for damages. You won't have to worry about shooting the animals in the wrong spot and watching a wounded animal, because they'll be culled in a shute and can't go anywhere. You won't have to worry about a lot of other hassles.

    Just my 2 cents.

    MT has a few wolves to spare, way cheeper and more effective than the idea of herding elk with choppers and penning them and working them like livestock.

    There are already wolves and cougars in that area.

    Teams of five (four volunteers and a nat'l park employee. I am sure you will meet at the park and then go out in designated areas. I sure hope all the teams won't be in one spot.

    Last time I checked the government is the last place you can find efficency. If you must pay for sharpshooters I will gladly charge my overtime rate.

    I just talked to a park employee and they said that they already have around 7000 applications to sort through so the chances of getting in are pretty slim.

    Good luck to those who want to waste some wage and tromp around the park. I hope you bring your hiking boots because you're going to need them.

    If they want me, they're going to have to pay me.

    I pay about $1,500.00 per year just for hunting licenses. I find it hard to believe some one feels that they need to be paid to go hunting. But then there seems to be a lot of people that do all of their hunting on the internet and they will be one the forum every day during hunting season

    One of the hardest things for me every year is to find someone to give the meat to. I am overjoyed that the gov't will take it off my hands.
