    Was at the Ndow office yesterday and was purchasing my license for the year and a Ndow representative asked me for my opinion on if game trail cameras should be banned from Sep. 1st thru closure of big game seasons on public lands , my reply was I do not use cameras I hunt the old way of scouting a few times with lots of leg work and spotting scopes and bino's also mentioned they have received a lot of letters and emails from hunters complaining about game trail camera users ruining other hunters hunts by driving around checking cameras while other hunters are hunting , thought this was interesting what are your thoughts on this ?

    I don't hunt big game a lot but I think your way of scouting is probably the best and most ethical.I would only be for them on private land.

    I agree JDK the old way of spot and stock has always worked for me and plenty of scouting . I no they have problems in Utah of guys taking cameras or cards and that's bull s but I believe a guy can do just fine with good glass and lots of time in the hills and we all love being out there.

    I know guys that use them. Also not opposed to limiting their use but I would suggest we all be careful how much we are willing to give away...

    Yeah there is a fine line on what we as hunters and Americans want to limit.
    I know lots of hard working ethical hunters that just don't have a lot of time off for hunting and especially scouting.
    It's just like guided hunts,I don't prefer them but sometimes it's a neccasary evil.
