DR Patterson, you are the type of Hunter we like to have stalking game on our public lands. Which, I consider myself to be similar to you in position. Mr. Skeptic I apologize to you, for stating an assumption on my part, that you are a bad apple. You have a dilemma, and I hope you can find a viable solution to it, without violating the Codes of Federal Regulations, Governing our public lands. Sincerely, Micky Smythe.
Well Skeptic, you said nothing to change anything I stated. And... in my email I never said I was a skilled "sportsman". I let all I stated stand. I hunt... And quite successfully. Fuel wood gathering(cutting) is definitely restricted, I say this with experience also, for, I have surveyed and set up, and established multiple Fuel Wood Blocks and or sections, with the U.S.F.S. Fuel Wood cutting is regulated also. Once again as to minimize damage to the natural resources. You seemed to be one of those you call Sportsman, we're always pulling out of the muck after you have damaged our natural resources. Hang Tough! Skeptic, I'm sure I'll see you out there somewhere. Sincerely, Micky Smythe.
First of all were you forced to put in for a Hunting Tag? Wow! And now that you shot your Game Animal, it's our collective problem, to make it easy, for you to retrieve it, uh? Follow the rules of the Forest. I have worked for U.S.F.S for over twenty years...Doing various survey work...And yes, walking the Land. I have seen our Great White Hunters, driving their all terrain vehicles, all over the Forest...And much of the time, where they shouldn't be...Because, they're creating ruts when it's wet, and those scars remain on the Land for a very long time. They also drive through meadow lands destroying these meadows as well...And not to mention crossing, and driving up and down sensitive streams...killing more Riparian Habitat. This is just some, of the reasons we restrict access, in the U.S. National Forest...to protect it, for all of the citizens, not just a selective special few. I hunt and I walk ridges to track wildlife movements...And I sit at points waiting patiently... waiting...And, if I'm successful with a kill, I do whats necessary to pack my meat out...And yes that may mean quartering and packing it out on my back. Wake Up! Sometimes that is the Nature of hunting. Maybe, you shouldn't be hunting if your that frigging lazy. Sincerely, Micky Smythe
Every man has a right to risk his own life for the preservation of his(public) land. What the Corporations offer us is dirty. And we should not become exhausted fighting for what we believe in, i.e., our air quality, our water quality, the diversity of wildlife that is nourished by this Mountain. What the Corporations will leave will be more than just a terrible scar. They offer us death for for a few nuggets of gold(copper). If you're gonna' defeat corrupt special interest, and the administrative authorities who represent them, you might as well use all the resources you've got. Never tire of fighting the Good Fight! Micky Smythe
Alright, on that philosophy, cempiremtm; You can't yell Fire! in a crowded theater, just, because you have First Amendment Rights! These Rights we have do not give us unlimited freedom to do anything we want to do. What is required is responsibility of words and actions. Locked & Loaded. Micky Smythe.
Ya' know, it comes back to the automobile. We all have to pass a written test, perform another test to demonstrate our capability to operate the machine, so, we don't kill our fellow citizens. And, we have to register the vehicle every year. We have to update our drivers license frequently, every so many years...And show we have Insurance for vehicle. If you comply with the law you can operate vehicle. Somehow, in many folks mind, if they were made to do this with guns, it would be a violation of their 2nd amendment rights. How can you even have a discussion with this kind of concrete philosophy? Motor Forward...Micky Smythe
Maybe McCain, should resign from the Senate...And go somewhere, far away, to serve our state and nation. I suggest, maybe, Ambassador to Vietnam. Micky Smythe.
