    Angry When is it acceptable to loose control?

    Just got back from a trip, had a blast, saw moose/bou/bear etc. On the way into the area I was at some idiots put a camp in the middle of a trail I was contemplating going down. There was still room to get my wheeler around it so I wasn't too pissed. On the way out of the area, they had moved there camp over more, but parked a giant RV/Bus right next to it leaving NO room to go by. I was just about to unload my wheeler bust through some brush a fly 50mph through the area they were hunting while screaming and spining broadies. Even thought about setting up a target and seeing if rifle was still sighted in. urgh.

    Some people, no common sense or respect. How did you get out? Did you bag an animal?

    I probably would have done everything you said you were thinking about doing but I would probably leave them a present in the middle of camp too. Refer to the the thread, "Do you bury your poo?".

    My guess is they were trying to keep others out of "their" hunting spot.
    Blocking off the trail ensures no one else can use it.
    It's not right and someone needs to let these kinds of people know that we feel that way.
    I might not spin broadies in their camp but something more subtle would might be fun. Like AGL4now said valve stem remover.
    Would be funny to see them try to move said bus with both sets of rear tires flat.

    Almost sounds like a typical unit 13 hunt. The only thing you did not say was whether or not you had bullets flying over your head.

    Default Thanks.

    No I did not get an animal. I think I won't be doing tier 1 again. I like hunting unit 20 and would have had more time to hunt it. I love the valve stem idea! Thanks! Also kinda glad I didn't act like a fool but some day I wil snap.

    I think I would have left some sort of visual, yet fairly harmless evidence behind reflecting how I felt about what they did.

    I wonder if you can still buy one of those fancy water cannons like the ones that used to hang in showers and hang it by their door?

    On BLM land?

    Call the BLM ranger and ask him (her? yeah right) to talk to them. I mean give them a ticket for obstructing public access.

    **** 'em.
    Drive right on through the camp and point out that they are ON the trail, and do so with a smile. If they give you lip, tell them they can tell it to the Troopers or the next guys commin, if they cant move or shut the **** up.

    Had some fellas do the same thing on a snowmachine trail, and worked for me they moved.
