    Default attn. AZ hunters and all other hunters. I see a trend

    Maybe its just me but this looks like a way to try to control hunters in AZ. I know that some of the USFS in CA feel the same way about hunters and it won't be long before they try something like this as well. http://azgfd.net/artman/publish/News...-Forests.shtml

    reread the article it is only if left for more than 72 hours. I believe its considered abandoned after 48 hours here. Its simple dont park in the forest park in the camping areas

    So if you are a hunter and you want to pull your trailer up to the mountains and use it for a base camp. Hike in for a few days and come back, the possibility of my trailer not being there when I get back is the price I might pay. Sounds like a way to force people to use pay campsites.

    Ive seen DFW sign postings in popular Sierra squator areas that limit camping to consecutive14 day periods, in order to prevent people from setting up permanent residence on public land, which seems to be happening more often in tough economic times.

    Nuther reason I love Utah! They treat hunters right there.
    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    The U.S. city with the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, Washington, D.C., has the highest murder rate at 24 per 100,000. The state with the most unrestrictive gun regulations, Vermont, has the lowest murder rate at 0.48 per 100,000.

    I think 14 days is a long enough period of time. I know people who would , if they could, just leave their trailer in the same spot all year. Everybody should enjoy to outdoors, and I know some rules have to be set in place. I do like that the dfg in AZ is at least making a template that you can put in the window of your trailer with your info and how long you are going to stay.

    Thanks for the follow-up Marty. This just wreaks of the forest service putting hunters lives in danger.

    As stated, if you are camped at a site then you should not be harassed by the County Sheriff.
