You must be hunting somewhere up in the Sacramento Valley "Zoo" I assume (?)
Just keep in mind that: (A) We currently have a pretty broad mix of free roam, a few assigned pond areas, and blinds evenly mixed throughout the state.....and (B), closing free roam areas almost always moves the problem elsewhere, and "punishes" alot of folks who weren't a problem in the first place.
Stay out of the well known problem areas (which have often been there for YEARS).....and quality free roam hunts, with patience, can be had. :cool:
free roam is a good thing but they need to be strict on the rules and start booting people who violate them. we're there to have fun and maybe shoot a bird or two. some guy's think they own the place and are bird hogs. i've got fired up a few times myself and i don't go out there to kick some butt but i will if it comes down to it.
EXTREMA wrote::salude: i hear ya. the only thing that would make me kick butt would be if a saw someone jump my buddy for no reason. some of these guys are drawn every week (must know someone on the inside) and they think the spots have names on them. i get drawn once a years if i'm lucky but i over heard a group saying they get drawn in low numbers every week. thats sounds fishy to me. these are the same guys that shoved me out of the way at the window when my res was lower. the game warden just looked the other way and took them first. i said "what kind of b.s. was that". she said "oh, they come here all the time ..they're good guys". i "said my res is lower and you called me first so they shoved me a jumped ahead of me". she said "i didn't see anything". i shook it off and had a good day anyway.
