I think the behavior that’s a big problem is when a group of people go out on the winter range when the snow is deep and they walk into every bedding, every feeding area and all trails between the two looking for random antlers. They run deer from one area to another, then go into that area looking for the random antler and push the deer again.
And when the group of people is 4, 5 or more, the deer really get run around a lot! And that’s not to mention the side by sides they’ll be using to drive every road they can on the winter range to access all the different spots they hit in a day.
The guys watching one specific buck, waiting for it to drop, then slipping in to grab the antlers and get out, aren’t the big problem. Those folks usually take extra care not to run the deer around. That would make it much more difficult to find the antlers.
What you need is a video of a group of dudes hiking all over the mountain all day long with deer scattering from all the bedding and feeding areas, then you’ll have something good to complain about and use as an example.
Whether it’s on YouTube or not has nothing to do with it. There are plenty of people who don’t post video to YouTube or IG who go too far.
