Couldnt click on the link, but I read a local newspaper article in Pocatello recently that also asked hunters to cover their game. Oh yeah, by the way Sportsman, I just got my buck with nosler balistic tips, actually tip, cause only one shot and dead.
I think the article makes a good point and I wish Wyoming well in this iniative. Maybe if it works they will do the same here in Texas. I have long wished they would. Even I don't like to see a deer hanging out of the back of a pickup when I'm on my way home from the lease. Especially if it is bigger than mine!
But I really do think that there is simply no need to rub it in people's faces. They say the vast majority of people do not hunt but do not really have a problem with it. But when the kids start asking mom why that man has a bloody, tongue hanging out of its mouth deer propped up for all on the highway to see, new anit-hunters are made. I just want us all to do all we can to make sure my kids are able to hunt and of course to keep me in business!
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
