    Thankfully I won't be around to see it because I really don't think hunting is changing for the better. Only making it easier for the lazy ones not willing to put in the work.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

This bill was NOT in any way, shape or form the brain child of Wyoming Sportsmen. Its not pitting hunter against hunter, its trying to stop a practice that is BOTH damaging to outfitters bottom line, as well as a huge ethical concern among hunters here in Wyoming. The GF is also in support of banning the practice too.

    I happen to agree with the outfitters that the practice of selling GPS cords, maps and pictures of specific animals is a bad idea. Its also more than just a business decision, it is a matter of hunting ethics and how far down the rabbit hole we want hunting to go.

    Just like the regulation that WYBHA worked on in regard to aircraft use, it makes, just slightly more than a metric chit-ton of sense, to get out in front of this issue while its still a relatively small problem. The longer you wait to put the genie back in the bottle, the tougher it is. Nip it while in its infancy.

    I'm not asking you to agree or disagree with the legislation, but quit trying to make this an US vs. THEM issue when its largely not. Quit trying to connect dots when none exist, the legislation will not stop any lawful outfitting and guiding...NONE.

    Its a pretty rare bird when WYOGA, the WYGF Department, and Wyoming R and NR sportsmen are pretty well on the same page about an issue...which we are on this one.

    Lastly, Wyoming has the ability and right to manage our wildlife as we see fit...and we will do so.

    IMO, you would be well served to figure out what your state wants to do with this issue...its happening there too. Oregon (and all the Western States) are closely watching how the legislation/regulation plays out here in Wyoming.
    My remarks are about the question the OP asked. Not chasing straw men with you. It was not a WY thread. You may want to start a thread about the WY process, probably be informative.

    My remarks have been consistent, essentially I support any legal means of hunting, whether I like it or not. If I am against it, I don't do it, and if I think it should be regulated/banned, I work at that.

    Second, I do not support folks that denegrate other hunters who are legally using means, they personally dislike. Things like calling them worthless and the like, aka shooting inside the tent. Serves no useful purpose I can think of. Most can respectively make their case to change a law etc., without name calling and personal attacks, some can't...

    I'll keep my opinion to myself for now, but will remind everyone that a civil debate is done without CAPS, exclamation points, name calling, and any negativity.

    Tim, I'm not going to go 15 rounds with you, my last post on this one. I didn't change the subject to Wyoming, JimP did.

    Secondly the OP asked for opinions...and I gave mine, in an honest answer. Being honest is never not the right thing to say.

    As to your straw man, I think you should read your own posts for a perfect example of that.

    Whether you agree or not, the ethics of hunting has been discussed for decades and the banning of certain equipment, bag limits, seasons, weapon restrictions, caliber restrictions, etc. etc. are all part of that debate. Lots of regulations are a minimum set of requirements to define fair chase and ethics...its all they are, all they ever were, and all they're ever going to be.

    Any time a regulation, law, or rule is passed, someone is going to be impacted...some negatively, and some positively. If everyone agreed on the issue, no need for a regulation, rule or law in the first place.

    Like I said, instead of hiding under the bed about this issue of selling locations, scouting services, GPS coords. etc., and being afraid to step on toes, lets talk about it, honestly talk about it. I think its great that information is shared about WY or any other state that is looking to tighten up regulation/statute on this subject. I will reiterate, your state is watching what happens in WY...you may want to get in front of this, one way or the other, whether you agree or disagree with it. Doesn't matter to me, I don't live in Oregon, not my pig, not my farm...simply a heads up. But, either way, someone's ox is going to be gored.

    Trust me, the same things were cussed and discussed when we tightened up the flight regulations...there was opposition to the regulation changes WYBHA successfully pushed. Including, but not limited to, testimony in opposition from WY elected officials. States all across the West addressed the drone/aircraft regulations over a pretty short time period. These types of regulations seem to have a domino effect all across the West.

    Nothing to get worked up about, not everyone agrees, seen it.

    Honestly, what I could do without is the passive aggressive posts, most seem to be able to not do that, others cant.

    Carry on...

    I don't believe that I changed the subject to Wyoming. I mentioned the possible new law in Wyoming in my first post.

    It was neither a way to distract the thread or start a new discussion on it but a statement.

    You BuzzH picked it up and ran with it in the next post.

    Then after another page of post I did ask a question about the law that requires non resident hunters in Wyoming to hire a outfitter if they are hunting in a wilderness.

    This was meant to just carry the discussion on about outfitters, whether you hired them as a guide service or just for their information. Wyoming was just convenient because they are the only one of the lower 48 states to require this at this time.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    Nothing personal, but you brought Wyoming into this subject twice, statement or not.

Outfitters are licensed, insured and only allowed in the certain areas the are licensed for, and they can lose their license at any point for violating laws. The person who is just doing it to make money and sell wildlife is not doing a damn thing for this state and therefore I fully support game and fish trying to put a stop to certain individuals who have been basically illegally outfitting by collecting compensation for while assisting someone's hunt, but not claiming that money as business in the state of Wyoming. I'll be going to the deer meetings that are upcoming and look forward to voicing my thoughts and hearing what they are thinking as well.

    Pretty risky business selling secrets in your own outfitter area. However any outfitter isn't going to sell the best spots so you'll probably be buying marginal information or even be mislead. Some outfitters play dirty. Don't be a sucker for this and just put a day or two extra to hunt in the area.
