    Have you seen the Wyoming Non-profit "Mountain Pursuit"

    All, I just read a little bit about Mountain Pursuit a non profit who promotes "ethical hunting/fair chase" with such practice is defined as follows;

    The essence of "Fair Chase" is maintaining the balance between the predator and prey. Specifically, game animals should have a reasonable chance of avoiding detection and if detected, eluding the hunter. Technology which tips this balance in favor of the hunter is simply unethical.

    To this end, Mountain Pursuit opposes:

    a) The use of Crossbows during archery season for hunters physically able to draw a 50-pound bow.
    b) The use of drones for scouting or hunting.
    c) The use of radios or other communication devices to coordinate hunter movement toward game.
    d) Constructing new or use of seasonally closed motorized trails during hunting season to access hunting areas or recovery downed game.
    e) Any method of scouting or game reconnaissance which does not put the hunter directly in the field him or herself including:
    - Game/trail cameras
    - Contract scouting services solicited to find and keep track of a specific game animal over an extended period of time - outside services normally provided by a guide or outfitter
    f) Artificial baiting of any kind to hunt bears.
    g) Use of electronic calls for predator hunting.
    h) Running down coyotes, fox, wolves or any predator or animal with a snowmobile or ATV/ORV.

    To this end, Mountain Pursuit supports:

    a) Limiting all archery hunting shots to 50 yards or less. More HERE.
    b) Limiting all rifle/firearm hunting shots to 300 yards or less. More HERE.
    c) Hunting-related penalties for ORV road and trail violations during hunting season. More HERE.

    The other initiative they promote is the reducing to 5% for non-resident limitted quotta tags !

    Let the games begin .....Thoughts ???

    I agree with some of what they stand for but they are taking a few issues so far that they don't have a chance of doing any good imo.

    yup. no bear baiting .
    no electronic calls.

    no shots over rifle 300 yards


    notice how the listed a few good things and tried to hide their real , agenda amongst it??
    sounds like a liberal run outfit to me . I wouldn't give em a penny no matter what they offer.

    I agree with almost all of those... the difference is I wouldn’t try to impose them on anyone else.
    For many hunters the stigma of being unsuccessful has become so unbearable that the satisfaction of the hunt itself has become lost...

    Some of what they "Believe in" and the way they put it out there sends a red flag up.

    yup.

    find out what most don't care about , then ban it. once done, find the next thing most don't care about . then ban it. and so on and on it goes. that is pretty much the playbook of the antis.

    I agree even if you agree with some or most of it my feelings are it will just divide the minority further. Whats next??? I do think the sales of the commissioners tags revenue should stay in state and should go towards wildlife habitat management, access or research.
    Do you know what Jim Bridger said about the Indians? " Just when your not seeing any is about the time they are fixing to get the thickest"
