Here is the prebaiting article I was refering to



Pre-baiting could be considered trapping during a closed season if you consider the following: AS 16.05.940 defines trapping as “taking” furbearers. The same statute defines “take” as “taking, pursuing, hunting, fishing, trapping or in any manner disturbing ... game.”


I wouldn't buy this opinion for a minute. It may qualify as "feeding animals" but I sure don't see it as "taking". That's a real stretch. Notice he says nothing about doing it during an open season. Theoretically, by his reasoning, you could do this during an open season but never set the trap. Are you still "taking" an animal under those circumstances ? Do you have to have them sealed?


I have to admit the guy immediately qualified as a fool in my book. Choosing to walk 5 miles without trying to dry your clothes strikes me as being judgementally challenged. Consequently, Whatever else he says is questionable in my mind. But that's just me.

Dwight Eisenhower said "it's better to have no law, than a bad law". Now I have all the respect in the world for LEO's but I have a corollary to Eisenhower's statement. "No trooper is better than a dumb trooper". Just my opinion, and I could be all wrong.

My musings on the brown shirts...

You get a good one in your district, one that's got the best interest of the resource in mind, do what you can to keep the guy (or gal) around. Take 'em on your line. Tip a cup or two of coffee with 'em. As I've opined before, every profession's got its good 'uns and it's slinkies. If you've got a good brown shirt, be thankful. They can be mighty helpful in a pinch.

On the other hand, I agree completely with white17. A bum one can become a lot like carburetor ice in a SuperCub. Without a little heat, it'll get you sooner or later.

Gulo,

On the other hand, the carb icing analogy may be somewhat lost on the many Southern people lurking here.

Nice to see you on here! The place was getting kinda in-bred! New perspective is handy.

Pete

I much prefer to think of you as the "new perspective."

On the other hand, I recall one time having to explain (to a guy who looked much like you)that the western boundary of the Fbks Mgt Area was Rosie CREEK, not the Rosie Creek drainage....!

Seems like people are forever tryin' to explain things to me, Pete, and they usually get that slack-jawed, blank-eyed stare, which is actually just my normal look.

Hey, slack-jawed is mandatory if you want that snoose to color your beard.

At least his adult diapers aren't clogging up the septic anymore..

You should make a sign for the batroom that says
"No adult hygeine products in the toilet"

Poor Barb won't do it.
She's too busy burning up all the birch - keeping the home fires burning!
It warmed up to minus ten this afternoon.
Yes! I plugged the truck in at work.
