A little background story as to why I'm asking:
While out at a quality hunt site this morning three younger guys showed up and decided to set up 150 yards away from us. There are two blinds on this site, and it's pretty clear that QH locations are restricted to hunting from established blinds. We walked up to them and politely asked them to move, which was responded to with what equates to a firm "no" and a smug statement that the "rules say you only have to be 150 yards away" and that "he's been here before." Not worth the fight, we decided to just deal with it and packed up shortly afterwards.
Due to his response, I really wanted to watch this kid explain to a game warden that either he can't read or he just decided to ignore the sign he parked next to on his way in. I'd rather not call anyone in if I don't have to, but when push comes to shove it would be nice to know the proper channels as I don't think this is something that would be appropriate for a 911 call.
I'll end my cry-fest. If you know anyone who hunts in Skagit at a quality hunt site with a red Isuzu, let them know I say hi and that next time I'll just skip the walk and go straight to the phone. If I can figure out who to call!
First off, not calling does nothing more than reinforce the illegal, obnoxious and unsportsmanlike behavior! Following the rules even if we do not agree with them is part of being a good sportsman.
Second, coming on here and calling him out is not classy and only tends to aggravate the internet tough guy routine that these obviously classless, unsportsmanlike clods tend to act on.
