    Nebraska Man Pleads Guilty to Poaching

    My feeling is hunting and fishing should be prohibited for life. They should be fined at least $25K for each big game animal and serve ten years in prison. Until our prosecutors and judges take poaching seriously, you are going to have problems with not just new offenders, but also with repeat...

    Nebraska Man Pleads Guilty to Poaching

    We got a judge that handles cases in the Laramie County courts too that is lenient and does not decide on the merits of the case but how they want the law to say. This case in particular should be audited by an independent third party to verify that the law was complied with both at the...

    Nebraska Man Pleads Guilty to Poaching

    I agree with what people are saying here in general. They plea bargained it down so I am wondering how strong their case really was and why the DA decided not to pursue the case further. There should be prison time involved too as I doubt this is the first time this guy poached.

    Hunters Targetted by Animal Rights Extremists

    It did LOL. That buck did not go far. I found him about a half mile away on an adjacent ridge.

    Nebraska Man Pleads Guilty to Poaching

    Boy this guy had an expensive poaching trip: http://www.buffalobulletin.com/news/article_54168fa0-0628-11ea-89fb-9b4395306020.html?fbclid=IwAR3V_8_KrDb6OTiWZJUR6M_A7xv4vpOeLw1EY6paCl8_QFZAaR360D94bg8

    Hunters Targetted by Animal Rights Extremists

    We are going to see more of this as time goes on unless hunters outnumber them. I personally experienced an animal rights fanatic that got between me and a buck deer I was attempting to shoot. A game warden evidently was following the guy and arrested him and told him right in front of me that...

    What would you cook for 20 people?

    I do chili and biscuits. My chili is a hit with my family especially when I do it with elk. But people not knowing I was serving them antelope or venison chili loved it and came back for more even after learning what they were eating.

    Ameristep Distorter Kickout Blind

    I found some hay bale "blankets" that I am going to use to break up the outline of the blind. Where I hunt, will be next to a haystack most of the time. So my idea is to get a light weight hay bale colored camo blanket to cover it and cover the forest green camo a bit which I think will stand...

    Ameristep Distorter Kickout Blind

    After months of trial and tribulation with my haybale blind, I tossed it and went with a new one. Going to try this on antelope this weekend if it's not too windy. Comments appreciated from those who have hunted with this or similar blinds. I spent a bit more because I liked it's features and...

    Hello from Colorado!

    Colorado is some great elk hunting that's for sure. I pulled maybe a couple dozen elk over my lifetime from Colorado. Big trophy opportunity too. I was hunting on a cow license on Gore Creek and my buddy had a bull tag and he snagged a really nice 6x6 with long tines.

    Hello from Colorado!

    That's cool that they opened up the public lands in that area now. In my day and my dad's day, a lot of BLM land in that area fell into the category of exclusive control leases so we ended up hunting the far north west section of Colorado. We would of loved to hunt closer to home.

    Hello from Colorado!

    LOL I have not hunted Colorado since 2003 when I moved to Cheyenne. Back then in that area, you pretty much needed an outfitter unless you knew a landowner or something. I hunted mostly Meeker, Rifle and Gore Creek near Kremling myself. BLM at one time was giving out exclusive control leases...

    Hello from Colorado!

    If that's by Aspen, they are protected. No one will let you hunt in that area. Public land around the Aspen and Breckenridge area is scarce for hunting purposes.

    Colorado hunting or fishing partner

    I am a Colorado native growing up around Fort Morgan, Wiggins and then the Thornton area. I am always open for a fishing trip and camping. As for nonresident hunting, I am reluctant to pay nonresident rates when I can get the same quality hunting in Wyoming, but not completely wrote off. Let...

    Shooting an Intruder

    There is always that risk. In Wyoming though, a number of cases where I thought it was outright murder, the DA declined to prosecute because of Wyoming's castle doctrine. There is always that hot shot prosecutor that thinks they can beat the doctrine. In reality though, I would not shoot...

    Shooting an Intruder

    Wyoming has the castle doctrine which allows you to shoot anyone entering your home without permission pretty much. Wife and I both would shoot without hesitation. As for the furkids, by time they are done the intruder would be begging to get shot instead.

    Who or what got you into hunting and the outdoors?

    My dad got me into fishing and hunting. I went with him and my uncles and my dad's friends as far back as I can remember, well before I was able to hold my own fishing pole or gun. He also instilled the idea that we are the custodians of the land we access and it is our responsibility to...

    Hunting with glasses?

    I have worn glasses all my life and just took them for granted. However, I tend to put them on my head or drop them around my neck when using binos or a spotting scope. I am probably within a year of surgery that will eliminate the need for glasses with me. I have cataracts and the day is...

    Wyoming knows how to manage mule deer

    Would be nice to see the mule deer population rebound where it used to be. Wyoming had a massive winter kill not too long ago and some areas have an antler requirement or you can shoot any white tail. The area I live in is like that, mule deer must be antlered but I can shoot any whitetail. I...
