I hear that! We've had someone shooting deer, cutting off antlers, and leaving carcass for the coyotes. Been going on for past couple years. There have been 15-20 deer found like this in the area. They take any size buck , not just trophies.
Really P.O.'s me to spend so much time doing it the right way , and then have some $@$@$%& come along and ruin an area by shooting all the deer. Hopefully they"ll get caught someday
Im from missouri and this is an out rage. Iwas told by a game and fish fellow to watch out for something sounds too good usely isnt. I just this year ask an outfitter about private ranch hunts. and the first thing out of his mouth was send me the 50 percent then we would talk. sorry but hunting is going the wrong way
some of those private ranches are too big for their britches! there is plenty of public land to hunt and it is good hunting here in Colorado, if you know where to go.there is legal outfitters that will show you a decent hunt and then there are those who are way out in left field!!!.
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
