#3: Re: Montana Trophy Llama Hunt Author: Pumpkinslinger, Location: NC foothillsPosted: Thu Jan 15, 2009 6:41 pm ---- OK, we need to hear the whole story on this one!
Not sure the whole story, my buddy e-mailed it to me and I am not sure where he got the info - I am thinking that this hunter did not have very good buddies - if he is an out of state hunter I would think he would be required to have a guide, or maybe at least hunting with some buddies - somebody should have figured out his misunderstanding and called him off the shot.....I wonder if Llama tastes like spotted owl?
#5: Re: Montana Trophy Llama Hunt Author: Pumpkinslinger, Location: NC foothillsPosted: Fri Jan 16, 2009 6:04 am ---- I remember seeing a story from KY a few years ago where a guy killed one of the newly reintroduced elk, thinking it was a whitetail... Anybody ever heard the term "Target ID"?

I was laughing my butt off until I spoke to one of the old locals who told me how many head the old rancher had lost over appx 25 years. I have seen 2 big Mulies tagged during elk season but nothing quite like that Llama .

#11: Re: Montana Trophy Llama Hunt Author: Bushmaster, Location: Ava, MissouriPosted: Tue Nov 24, 2009 9:52 am ---- Years ago in Oregon a State Trooper stopped an out of state vehicle with a mule tied to the front fender (when cars had front fenders). The out of state hunter was real proud of his "cow elk" and showed it off to the Trooper. The trooper shook his head, got back in his car and drove off...

#13: Re: Montana Trophy Llama Hunt Author: English Mike, Location: Whitehaven, Cumbria, UKPosted: Wed Nov 25, 2009 8:29 pm ---- The first year I hunted in the US some twit shot an outfitter's horse in our GMU.
Someone told me that driving a two tone brown & cream station wagon with roof bars wasn't a good idea during elk season either.
#14: Re: Montana Trophy Llama Hunt Author: slots918, Posted: Sun Nov 29, 2009 10:48 am ---- reminds me of the first time hunter that shot a "real purty dear" here in Arizona, a nice 16" antelope

I have two similar (unfortunately true) stories from places I have lived.
1) In Randolph Center, VT an out-of-state deer hunter was at a weigh-in station trying to figure out how to hook up the mule he had shot onto the hanging scale.
2) In Solomons, MD a New York goose hunter pulled into a gas station and was bragging to the attendant that he had limited out on geese. Since nobody had bagged many geese on the Chesapeake for quite some time, the attendant was very impressed - until the hunter opened his trunk to show off a pile of seagulls. He just congratulated the guy and sent him on his way.
Wonder how they tasted.
