this takes the cake
« on: October 14, 2015, 04:48:45 PM »
according to a good source, WI will now allow tribal members to hunt/kill deer at night w/ lights. this includes all state, federal and MFL land open to hunting. ARE THEY NUTS??????????????????? WHY???????????????

this is insane. they can hunt tribal lands exclusively. now hunt public land at night? ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!

I was deer hunting years ago along a gravel road. there were several deer in the clover. a truck pulls up w/ 4 in the back and guns blazing. I dove out of the tree and hid as bullets were whizzing by. they sped off w/ no intent of ever taking the deer. I took a description of the truck to the police. they were tribal members that had previous complains. no charges because it was "legal for them". 3 of the deer died and were eagle food. I have several similar stories of tribal member waste. it's crazy and sad

in russ's words, what would John Wayne think?

That's absolute craziness, who is making the game management laws there? Someone getting casino kick backs or what? There must be no deer left on tribal lands, and there won't be many left elsewhere if that continues.

Political correctness run amok. If they have casinos in your state, don't visit their establishmen, take you money elsewhere

That is insane.  In today's world that is insane. With all we have learned over the past decade or two about QDM how in the heck do these irresponsible and detrimental laws and policies get passed up there?   Wolves, Bears, $2 unlimited doe tags, and now a  green light to slaughter unlimited deer at night with lights?  What kind of idiots are running things up there?  Sounds to me like some big money interest is in play. Under the table offerings from big insurance is where I would look first.   Good gosh that's beats all I ever heard.

The history of America (and all of history for that matter) was good and bad, it is what it is.     How long do we continue to keep granting special privileges to everyone that got the short end of the stick at some point in time?

You can thank Judge Barbra Crab for this. If it has to do with tribal rights she will vote in favor of the tribes most every time. You can bet your bottom dollar that this has everything to do with the wolf hunt. Wolves are sacred to the native americans, and when the first wolf hunt in Wisconsin took place the  walleye spearing quota was drastically increased by the tribes in the ceded territory in retaliation. Now comes step two, night time hunting with high powered lights and rifles. The deer population is finally starting to make a come back in the northern woods and now this. Absolutely insane, approved by the judge on Oct 14th and implemented on Nov 1st. Barely even enough time to alert the public. 

That is insane.  In today's world that is insane. With all we have learned over the past decade or two about QDM how in the heck do these irresponsible and detrimental laws and policies get passed up there?   Wolves, Bears, $2 unlimited doe tags, and now a  green light to slaughter unlimited deer at night with lights?  What kind of idiots are running things up there?  Sounds to me like some big money interest is in play.

The state and DNR fought this, but this came down from the federal level. So you can blame Washington for this. Why is it you don't see PETA protesting this.

That's exactly what came to my mind.  This is the first time I have ever seen where PETA AND the hunting community could actually have a common interest and could use their political influence to stop this.  Ya, where the heck are they?

I agree with MI_Bowhunter.  You would not believe the benefits and free handouts they receive in OK.

That's crazy to let them hunt anywhere and anytime. I do frequent their gas stations on my way home from my land and that's about it...Funny you mention their casinos...My banker from Key bank said that when they cash their checks at any of the Key bank branches they are not allowed to ask for ID no matter how large the checks are. But when I get a rookie teller I get asked for ID with a printed deposit slip with my name one it....Go Figure !

Unreal - those lawmakers need to be locked up for their own safety (and ours)

I never thought about that. why didn't peta protect it????????? are they getting a check under the table from the tribes? I wouldn't doubt it

why the feds were involved is beyond me. they were also the ones that put the wolves back under protection. i'm sure the tribes had something to do w/ that also. they seem to be working together

And I thought NY politicians had the world of insanity mastered!! That is without a doubt, one of the most "out to lunch" decrees I have ever heard.

I don't doubt that PETA would be if it was someone other than a tribal group.
