    I just found this on the WY BLM website. It's taken from a piece on Off-Road Vehicle use. It reads "Temporary excursions
    leaving existing vehicle routes are permitted only to accomplish necessary tasks
    and only if such travel does not result in resource damage. Examples include picking up
    big game kills..."

    Sounds like a reasonable policy to me.

    That is a good deal, and again, good luck hunting!

    Bitterroot Bulls is exactly right. Rules vary by area and at the present time most federal lands are going thru a new evaluation and rules. Call the nearest federal public lands office near where you are hunting for the latest info. Here in SW Colorado we are going thru a real involved process with the first federal plan being withdrawn and a new public comment period and then another set of public access rule being released. I know several similiar situations exist in New Mexico. Things can really change from year to year. IMHO the biggest local rule problem here is that Mt bikes and motorcycles are allowed on a lot of hiking trails, lots of controversy here and also no downed game retrevial off road, which is also a big change. Lots of really ticked off people here on both sides of the issues.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the BLM site also says off road travel is limited to 300'.

It was unfortunate to me that you asked about the law, but were given the answer to just not get caught, joking or not.

    I am sure the closest BLM office close to your hunting area can give you a definitive answer. I know the rules in MT are different depending on location.

    Good luck on your hunt!
    You are a joke. Are you seriously going to act like you abide by all the rules all the time? and you cant take a joke? I am pretty sure nobody is logging onto eastmans forums to get "anti-hunting" banter or what ever you are concerned about. Get over yourself the guy made a joke and it was an obvious joke. If you want to live in your basement wearing an aluminum foil hat and fearing that everything you say, do and think is being recorded thats fine. Don't push that crap on us though, we're here to share and learn from eachother.

    Calm down tikkamike, you might blow a gasket! I would say that response was un-called for.

    I sure as hell bet he tries, as everyone should if your calling yourself an ethical hunter.
    I recognized long ago that if I have a warehouse full of guns, but no public land or public wildlife, I have nothing!

    i don't call myself and ethical hunter... I call myself a good hunter, I shoot animals long range, I shoot coyotes from the truck and I shoot more than a half hour before and after the sun rise/set. Does that make me unethical? NO everyone here has done it. as soon as you can see you shoot if there's something there. Nobody watches the time tables and lets a buck walk because shooting light doesn't start for another 3 minutes. What is it with everyone getting high on the term "Ethical Hunter"? I don't get it... Ethics are not a standardized set of rules its up to individual interpretation. I think I can shoot a deer a 200 yards off the nearest road and drive my pick up to go get him and not destroy any ground, not harm any animals and not compromise fair chase...(which i think is a stupid term) but if I do it I am an unethical person? Because the BLM (one of the most useless of all federal agencies and a huge waste of tax money) says I can't even though its OUR land?? Get a grip! Quit drinking the Kool-Aid.

    Basically you just described yourself as a poacher, way to go!

    TikkaMike, you are everything that is wrong with hunters today. Congrats, you're the reason that resource management agencies have to establish rule after rule, for the lowest common denominator. The actions that you've described certainly don't make you a "good" hunter, they just make you a prick.
