My experience has been that the vast majority of bad behavior happens in close proximity of roads and or road-accessible campisites. On that note, I recall crossing one of the many forest services roads while hiking in the vicinity of Mt. Adams and the Goat Rocks here in Washington, and while getting my bearings on the map, I stopped along a dirt road. Well, this truck drives slowly by and the driver looks at me and slowly drives off. A few minutes later, he returns, looks at me and passes by. By the this time, I kind of wondered what he was doing. I wait. Sure enough, ten minutes pass by and he drives by again, looks at me, and asks, "Seen any elk?"
While the subject of hunting can be a devisive one, I was fairly unhappy by this guy's technique. He was obviously driving around, hoping to basically run into a elk standing unawares. If you are too lazy to get out of truck to look for yourself, well, you haven't any respect for the animal you seek. There was a large herd just 1.5 miles from where I stood, but I answered in the negative. No matter how one feels about hunting, the fact is it's called "hunting" and not "getting."
