4 Wheeler????

Should 4 wheels be allowed in national forests during the hunting season????

Have you ever been set up on old logging road that is closed off and here comes a 4 wheel??????

I have one. I think that a good way would be that a 4 wheels not allowed in the national forest until noon that would give everybody a chance in the national forest undisturbed & u could get your game out at that time.

I got the idea from hunting and Saskatchewan Canada which 4 Wheelers are not allowed on Crown land until noon.

I like the idea of it.

I like that rule also.
Can be very irritating to have a hunt interupted by a speeding 4-wheeler.

There are safety issues as well.

For select areas, I'd like to see those on 4-wheelers all wear hunter orange vests, have a current hunting license, and be actively engaged during actual hunting season days only.

We aren't allowed to have fourwheelers in National Forests past gates on roads. The first time someone gets caught it's a $500 fine; second time they can take your ATV, truck, guns, anything in your possesion.

I think it would be good to allow ATVs from 12 noon - 3pm, that way no afternoon hunts would get messed up either! Thumbs up

I will have to say that a ATV is a great tool for hunting, as far as scaring them, well don't run with the throttle wide open. Or is it that the deer up here are deaf? Think

Here in Mt with game like antelope you can get alot closer in plain sight on a wheeler than on foot,the same with muledeer,they get so used to seeing them on ranch's that they dont fear them at all,all of our National Forest roads have most of the offshoots blocked so you cant get up them except on foot so its not a problem here.

Nevada / Montana / Mount Wacko Hunter:

Please adjust your profile's location and be honest when posting, as it's deceptive confusion for members of the Forum.

Folks cannot tell if you're from "Montana", "Nevada," or mentally live on "Mt. Wacko."

Mt. Wacko:

Personally I don't care where you live, but it's confusing for the Forum membership.

Please provide unbiased objective data and leave out the snide subjective comments that many members privately complain about.

'Nuff said, as this has already been discussed privately, but in public, leave the attitude on Mt. Wacko.
