So opening day here in SW Mt was a very disappointing day for hunters who respect private property!! We lost access to one of the best ranches on Block Land Management because of the conduct of other hunters who lined up on a county road and shot into a herd of elk at random, in this blazing away they shot up a beef cow! In the area I hunt the land owner has allowed access for as long as I can remember through his property, this year they decided to close one road for a couple weeks the first of the season till cows were out and the big rush cleared out, I happen to know that he was going to open the gate in a couple weeks but some hunters decided to take it upon themselves to cut the chains and tear down the signs and disrespect this guys property. Now access will NEVER be granted again!! There is precious little great elk hunting left but just as bad as the wolf has been on the elk herd so has disrespectful jack wagons been to our access to hunting, non resident and local alike!!
