Damn politicians. What the hell good is that gonna do? If I was walking out of the woods and someone was lookin' for a deer I would help at the drop of a hat. And what about guys like my dad in law who, albeit a NY Guide, has been hunting since he was 8yrs and has more experience tracking and hunting than most any? This stupid crap would make him hire a guide to track a deer? That is nuts! Of course, I have never known of him having to track a deer overnight anyways, but still! I am not sure what the point of the legislation is really. Regardless of whether you are a guide or not, isn't it safer for everyone to wait until the AM and track in daylight anyways? It is a lot easier to get lost in the pitch black than in daylight. ME Guides are full of experience and skills and information and all, but it's not like they are super-human-spotlight-equiped-GPS-deer-locator-bullet-trackers or something!
NOTE: I mean absolutely no disrespect to any guides or hunters or anything, I am just puking stuff into the keyboard not thinking. I hate this legislate everything society we live in. I tend to sway a bit towards the Libertarian side on many issues, cause we just need to let people be.
