We have gotten in arguments on here before about this stuff...the "stop b1tching and do something about it" point of view for example, but I don't think they quite understood what we were dealing with.
Excellent point. Couldn't agree more. There is no sense at all trying to talk with or "help" guys who flagrantly are breaking the law (usually multiple laws), regardless if they are noobs or "seasoned" hunters. Those are the guys I let the warden "help". And I do call the warden; got all their phone #s in my cell.
And while I think it is right the right thing to do for all of us to help out newcomers, I do draw the line at "hooking up" and hunting with ANYBODY that I don't really know and/or seen in action, especially those early morning parking lot guys you just met/saw for the very first time who want to hunt together right then.
