Had a really nice hunt on Saturday, which also happend to be the only chance I had to make it out in rifle this season. Saw 13 doe and only heard a couple shots that were even remotely close to me. I would estimate at leat 500 yards away. Never saw another hunter the entire day which also amazed me.
Anyhow, on my way down the mountian I saw flashing lights from a wardens vehicle that were blinding to say the least. At first I thought maybe they were having a sobriety check point but as I approached I realized what was going on. The warden had a metal detector looking for spent rounds along with others searching the side of the road with flashlights. And then there was an idiot hunter dressed from head to toe in orange leaning on his truck with a look of shame. I guess this guy pulled over on the road and decided to start shooting between houses. What an idiot. Thousands of open public land up there and he does that. Not to mention this was not a teenager or some stupid kid. He looked to be in his 50's. Nothing shocks anymore.

Shot a doe on our property Saturday out in a wide open field with a beautiful backstop... neighbor ran over hollering and screaming that we shot at his house.... complete 180 degree direction difference... then yelled that we shot his "deer" that bed on his property.

Can i get him for hunter harassment?>

Not witnessed, but cleaned up a violation so to speak. 9 garbage bags of trash so far, thrown over the bank at several locations. You guys that come up to camp really need to police your own. Just take your trash home, how hard is that?

Reported baiting next to the place I hunt. Salt block next to property line.
Wco called me back 2 days later.
4 hunters all had some type of violation. 1 had shot a small doe and left it lay cause it was to small. Unbelievable.
Wco said 14 violations total and about 3k in fines between all of them.
