I totally agree with you tim, I am tired of everyone wanting more wilderness areas. I have pictures of when I was 2 and 3 years old on the Uncompahgre in Colorado in high traffic areas and it is still the same. The only difference is the trees and bushes are a lot bigger. I'm tired of them taking away our public lands. ,)
I don't get how can designate an area as wilderness, yet still leave access open to logging and claim not to infringe on recreation. If it is currently roadless, I see how you can claim you aren't restricting access for recreation, but I don't see how they can claim to still leave it open for logging.
That article lacked some important details.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
