I’ve been dyi hunting and outfitting/guiding western hunts for 27+yrs. Thanks for keeping it real. Dyi hunters are pinched by anti”s, G&F agencies, outfitters, landowners and even law enforcement (Wy corner X-ing). We need to be calling unethical actions into the light. Like you, I don’t save time, money,etc to go get into conflict, but I’ve been run off of public land. In one OTC unit inCO the local outfitter has an elk roundup where he and his guide ride horses banging pots running the elk into their private. Dyi public land hunting is hard enough without cheats stacking the odds (not to mention NMGF being in landowner and guide pockets-look at tag allocation). Thanks for doing this segment, I have onpassed to all of my friends…..and yes “there is some sketchy shit going on in elk hunting the SW.”
