And put nails out to flatten ATV tires. Here is the situation. Me and two others went out and built two bair bait stands out in 20B, 1/2 mile to 3/4 mile off of the road. We did a good search of the area and found no sign or registrations of other hunters. We did notice an old trap line that had a sign that said "TRAP LINE - STAY OUT - THAT MEANS YOU!" and had two names at the bottom. No phone number. The trap line had not been used in a while as there was no break in the trail and the sign was weathered. We discussed on whether or not to consider this area due to the sign. Due to the amount of time spent looking, carrying, building, falling, etc. we decided to go on with the location and if the persons who wrote the sign showed up at anytime during the season and had a problem we could discuss it as grown ups. Long story short, we proceeded to go into the area and found a good baiting area. Set up a stand and bait station and left. The following day we went to ADFG and registered the stand in the hopes of knowing if anyone else had registered a stand nearby or whatever. ADFG said it was a good spot and that there should be no problems with the location. Until today. My hunting partner took his ATV and some bait and his 10 yr old son to the location of our stand, unloaded the truck, put the kid on the back and proceeded to enter the woods toward the stand. He gets to the location and thinks he is in the wrong spot because there is no stand and no barrel build-up that we started last trip. He scratched his head, checked the GPS, walked back to his ATV and noticed 3 flat tires. He knew he was in the right area, a mile from the road, with his son and 3 flat tires. We rode 3 ATV's all around that area for 13 hours last weekend and never had a flat. Coincidence, I dont think so. We are not out here to step on anyone's toes, we checked to make sure we were legal in all aspects of distance and area, we are willing to comprimise in a distpute over an area. We just want to be in the woods and share the experience with our friends and family. What is our next step? I would love to be able to shake it off as a loss but alot of time and money went into this and now we get to show our kids that life is just as cruel out here in the woods as it is on the city streets. What a shame. I use this site for alot of research and take heed in alot of the discussions and if someone says, cut the losses and find another area, I will. But boy do I want to find the person responsible and punch him in the throat. I dont want anger to get the best of me but it is hard and I will rise above it. Any comments on what I can/should do would be appreciated. Thanks.
