    Marijuana grows

    I was watching POT COPS and they keep saying how they find a lot of these grows by hunters stumbling acrossed them while out hunting. I have never come acrossed one but most of my hunting is done her in Nv so I assume the weather is to dry. Has anyone ever come across anything like this?

    Nope, but I grew up hunting the desert of southern Arizona and saw plenty of illegal immigrants heading over for handouts.

    Northern CA has a lot of it. I've come across some growers in Humboldt County some fishing for salmon on the Eel River by Willits back in the late 80's. Now with medical cards it is more and more common or at least I hear about it more often. I've even seen more than one episode now on Wild Justice here in CA. The Fish and Game were in on a raid busting a group of growers.

    The show was mostly in Hombolt. Man that could be a real bad deal if a guy was to run into the guys growing with a gun in your hand while hunting.

    That's no kidding, from what I see (on TV) these guys (mostly Mexicans) are armed to the teeth and not afraid to shoot & run!

    Did Eastman's have an article on how to deal with these growers, or was that Bugle??? I think Bugle, anyways, they gave good pointers on how to approach these type of situations and best ways to report them. They basically were asking all hunters to report when and where they see these marijuana camps, but like IKIC said, most of my hunting is here in NV and I haven't come across any of them.
