Plastic Ribbons

Hey MM'ers out there! All too frequently I am finding plastic surveyors ribbons during hunting season that are obviously recently placed (within the last year or two, sometimes older). Not just in Kali, but Id, Wyo & Az last several years. I can understand marking a downed animal or some other "situation", but....come on. With todays GPS OnX and other tech items, there is no reason to play Hansel & Grettle out there. Or if you really need to string ribbons every 100 yds to find your way back to the vehicle (and not willing to pull them when your done) maybe you shouldn't be out there.

I'm all for everyone being safe out there, first and foremost! But don't leave the darn ribbons all over the country side.

I'll get off my soap box now.

When You Pull them Down You Sure are Making it Rough on me to Remember where I Shot Last Years Buck!

I've started using toilet paper instead. That way if I miss one or don't get it pulled, it'll be gone with the first rain storm.

I come out of the woods with my pockets full of ribbons, some of those people are probably still lost. One guy last fall was putting out one every hundred yards, on a trail! He was even putting his initials on them with a sharpie.

Hey Elk! I had you pegged as more of a road hunter, now you are suggesting you actually hike. Say it ain't so?

BGD,

There is a place for tape but I've never understood people who have to mark a trail.

I always come back with a pocketful of survey tape hate these... (LOST Litterbugs.) So last year this (LL) had blue tape every 30 yards marking hidden Tank.... I spent an hour of my hunting time to take them down and put them back up leading this FOOL to a cliff....

I've found most times they mark a kill site. If I find a gut pile, the surveyors tape comes out with me.
