Public hunting is hunting with the public. You should have gotten out of bed and encouraged those utes to go to bed and register for Obama-Care in the AM.

Where is the energy on the left? Perhaps it might be time to hunt in a more controlled environment, a rice paddy all your own for the season?

I know the season is over for most of us, but really you went political that fast......I sure hope your side wins the next time around, that way every thing will be fixed, or the blame game will suddenly become valid again...... :huh:

The refuge I was at had the biggest idiots in a parking lot I've ever seen. They were letting off fireworks at 11pm and had their music so loud it sounded like it was in my camper. Then it turned even stranger when they started shooting fireworks at one another. My daughter couldn't believe it and I've never seen anything like it in all my years public refuge hunting. These idiots were literally hiding behind trucks from one another and shooting bottle rockets at each other. The check station is unmanned at this refuge. At one point they actually shot one that hit the brick check station wall. Unbelievable.

Finally about midnight they were so drunk they all passed out and they went to bed. I've never had a problem getting up and telling folks to be quiet but with this group of folks I figured I would be better off to stay quiet. I would have had 30 drunks to contend with and that isn't something I want my 13 year old to be part of.

I hope none of you were part of that crowd.

Dang... I noticed that Saturday night was a lot more crowded than Friday night at the San Luis/Salt Slough checkstation. I went to sleep fairly early, but nothing looked out of control there.

Was this in the Grasslands?

Sounds like a call to the local Sheriff might be in order.

I just find it hard to believe people are so inconsiderate that they would keep their fellow hunters from sleeping by carrying on like this. Of course, these type don't really care about anyone but themselves (meaning that they have a good role model in the current POTUS, but that's another subject). The only (possible) good thing is these dolts may get themselves so drunk that they might not be able to get up in the morning and claim their spot on the refuge. I used to, in the good old days, go down to San Diego to go out on the party boats and chase albacore. There always seemed to be a faction on board the boats that enjoyed drinking to excess and playing cards all night on the way out. For me this was actually a good thing as it meant that there would be a few less people at the rail in the morning because these guys usually couldn't pull themselves out of their bunks until the day was well under way.

Ahh good ole Kalifornication. A place where anything goes and there is no standards of any kind.

Sounds like a great place to live.

Umm, how could that have happened tonight? This was last Friday night I believe.

Wow! I hunted Volta for years and this never happened to that degree.
Everyone had some level of control and respect and the guys (20 to 30 year olds) partied but weren't that stupid or loud too late.
I would have called the Sheriff immediately and then Los Banos complex manager the next day. In my old days they would have had flat tires by the time they woke up to give them a life lesson! Actions and consequences still holds true...I'm sorry that happened to you and especially for your daughter.
Next year you 2 can come up to the rice if you want for a day. PM me if interested.
