Being the beginning of the year, I'm planning my fall and dreaming of being outside on the hunt. I live in Wyoming and have a passion for big mule deer. One thing that I have been wondering others opinions on is how everyone feels on the following:
Scouting out big game animals, specifically trophy mule deer, and selling the location to people.... and doing it without any type of outfitters license.
I know it is happening in Wyoming and there are buyers. Should it be allowed without any type of regulation? Should anyone with time on their hands be allowed to go scout out a trophy bucks demise and sell it? The bigger the buck the higher the price? Competing with outfitters who pay for their license and day use in national forest?
Who thinks it's ok? Who thinks it's wrong? Forecasting into the future, I can see it growing into a profitable side job for those doing it, and adding to the factors eliminating the big bucks.
I get the thought process behind it, but I believe it should be regulated just like the outfitters.
I'll be interested to hear everyone's thoughts.
