    Interesting.

    About a month ago, ATC told me via e-mail that vaccinated people could spread the virus and that was why they would not recognize it. I guess vaccines got more sciency since then.

    A hundred feet from two ladies hanging and they were so loud they kept me awake in my tent with earplugs. I asked what they liked about hammocks. Answer....the angle of the neck stops the snoring.

    Why is everyone so afraid of being robbed?

    Three shuttles I used were cash. $20, $10, and $205.

    If conservation land has been bought and paid for by hunters, why isn't it fair that only hunters use that land for a few weeks out of the year.

    Never mind. Closed minds, here.

    Pittman-Robertson Act imposed 11% tax on all hunting supplies to fund conservation of land. How about a similar act for hikers, x country skiers, ultra runners, mountain bikers, etc. None of these...

    Hunters contribute $1.6 Billion with a B annually to land conservation. This goes to buy land for wild life habitat.

    I wondered where my post went. I think my rant was supposed to be posted on a different forum.

    I used to always sleep with my food. I got pressured recently to hang. I did it properly. A...

    I was curious if there was something specific I could do in the future.

    The general advice I read from hikers is that you can only get fit on trail and it just takes like 6 weeks to get your...

    Also, we have plenty of hiking areas where hunting is not allowed vs very, very few areas where hunting is allowed.

    Hunting turkeys with a rifle is weird. I am a good shot, regular in the 185-190 range 3P with a 22 rifle. I can't imagine using a rifle on a moving turkey at 40-50 yards.

    It is 4, 5, or 6 shot...

    In my state, hunting land was bought and paid for from the sale of hunting permits.

    I consider hikers to be unwelcome guests.

    Just offering the other side of the opinion.

    How do you know the hunter mistook a hiker for a turkey? That is not what is reported in the article.

    A turkey shell has perhaps 100 pellets. It only takes 4 to kill a turkey. When the pellets...

    Why do conservation areas allow hikers during hunting season. It is an accident waiting to happen. No surprise from me.
