I stopped my unit 7 deer hunt this year because while hunting I could not escape the sounds of quads, ATV's and other road hunters. It really ruined my experience. I feel bad for the kids who were told they were going hunting but never step foot out of a car.

Lazy A$$es on quads/side by sides
Agree totally. Why do we hunt. To get away from things in the clean air. To see wildlife and hopefully bag a nice animal. Won't say what unit I was in but hiked into a canyon and sat up on a ridge. Had a nice 4x4 coming in walking my way and here comes the yahoos on their quads and side by sides. These clowns had no idea they messed up my hunt and that they were even being watched. They end up spooking all the deer away. I would be game for game and fish making special units where no quads, side by sides, etc. I am not saying everyon with a quad, side by side is an irresponsible hunter. But over the years you see how most just putt around looking for animals. One year I saw some guy just driving all over. This isn't hunting. Go to the dunes if all you want to do is drive. Use your legs.

story of my hunt
Scouted 6 weeks ealier, Came up a day before opening day, Found a promising little spot with alot of sign. Got up at 4 am opening day, drove to within half mile of said spot. We got set up in the blind IN THE DARK. About 20 minutes after sunrise 2 trucks drove by, bout 20 minutes after that, heard what sounded like a BULL ELK coming through the brush directly behind us (not elk season but it would have been cool to see him that close). Then it started CURSING !! Stepped out of the blind, asked the dude if he was ok, "oh yeah,saw your truck back there on the road, didnt think you where huntin HERE"

But there was the guy
Parked the truck, hiked in & around about 4 miles, found the road to walk back to the truck. Couple fellas stopped & said they saw our truck & backed out from where they thought we might be hunting. To them I say THANK YOU.

adding to that
they appeared to be seasoned hunters and thanks to them and all the fathers and grandfathers who taught us old schoolers the PROPER AND MORAL ways of hunting in this great state finding a spot to hunt in your truck, quad or whatever is fine but when you get close strap on your pack get your gear and hike in to where you need to be. their last words to us were "Dont let the idiots get to you guys have fun and good luck"
