Used to work for the Forest Service, I know what wilderness is and the laws that protect it. If you have wilderness there, then report the illegal activity. Nation wide, designated wilderness is protected. If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

Maybe my definition of "wilderness" is wrong but it is thousands of acres literally stretching mostly unmarred about 110 miles to Tennessee. And it is mostly privately owned. There is a huge swath of land owned by the folks who own Jack Daniels about a half mile behind my house. The amount of wildlife is incredible. Pretty awesome place, for sure.

I don't see how I am part of the problem. Enlighten me how I kick people out of hunting on their private land. I would like to become a solution for that!

Seriously, ya'll go and enjoy your hunting. Just don't throw you beer cans all over the place and, for heaven's sake, what did you guys do before the four wheeler was invented???

I can remember my uncle dragging a deer a mile or more in the snow in PA to his truck. Never saw a mule. ;)

One, I do not drink or throw out beer cans while hunting. Wilderness is clearly defined and protected. Private land is private and what one does on his land, as long is legal is fine. Lumping all hunters as beer can throwing....is the same as calling all homebrewers alcoloholics. Wrong. What you have might be nice, but clearly not wilderness hence what they do is legal.
 Also, I drug my deer a half mile, vehicles weren't allowed off the road.

I don't think I said "all hunters throw beer cans." Just said I hate the ones who do. What do you hunters do to curb that problem? If you are not part of the solution .... :)

Alright. I've had my little bit of yearly half drunken fun busting hunter's chops. Makes me feel better and cuss less. Thanks for listening. I'll back out of your thread now.

Just got back from deer camp in NH. Froze my ass off, kicked my ass hiking miles over mountains day after day, and the only thing I ended up killing was a bunch of beers. Already looking forward to next year :)

The highlight of the trip was definitely watching the Taurid meteor shower on a gin-clear night, miles from any trace of light pollution.

Yep. At least the ones that weren't full of Skoal drippins. Blech.

An avid hunter buddy of mine has this on his tool chest, it makes me laugh every time I read it.

Oh no, they all came home. The spit bottles went in the recycling and the rest went in Oxy Clean :)

The use of motorized vehicles (snow mobiles, ATVs. etc) is legal in National Forests and is also allowed by some states in their state parks. And while it is legal, it tends to ruin the outdoor experience for those of us who don't ride.
