Great day hunting

Decided to hunt near the Montana border instead of the usual areas closer to home. Didn't see any bears, but had a great time in the drizzle.

I think this was private property, but I didn't see any postings or fences.

This was a couple hours and a few miles later. They weren't spooked at all.

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    All around Texas you consider questionable land private. Any land is considered private unless and until you know for sure, because they will hang you out to dry for trespassing.

    Interesting... look at the tree stump next to the elk on the right. It definately has been logged or cut in the past. Was that the owner? a leasee?

    Definately someone has worked that wood.

    OF COURSE they were not scared. It wasn't elk season. They know. I swear they know.
    That has to be correct, our oldest son was wandering around hunting turkeys ,last week or so, out past El Paso and he said elk were everywhere.

    Snake...75% of the Idaho panhandle is public land. Odds are that the property is public. Also, in Idaho, private property must marked, in plain sight every 60 yards. If the property is not marked, it is not trespassing.

    Dan...That photo was taken in Kaniksu Nat'l Forest. Every inch of the panhandle has been logged at one time or another or currently. There is no old growth. That includes all of the Nat'l forests, state land, and private property. A very large portion of our economy is commercial logging. There are 5 lumber mills within 20 miles of my house.

    You can't walk in the woods without seeing stumps.

    That's the law on private property in Idaho? Posted every 60 yds? Sweet...wish they had that law here in Wyoming. Here, a lot of Ranchers/landowners try to pass off public land as private. No posting of private property required. What with most of the lawmakers in Wyoming agriculture connected, you can see who the laws were written to benefit. I see rancher/outfitters posting public land where I hunt.
    Heck, I'd like to see the State & BLM lands properly signed.
