You cannot hunt on the King’s land.

Remember, those are the King’s deer.

I was talking about this yesterday, theres a whole lot of federal land and seasons just really getting started. It was just a matter of time before they figured this one out. Screw anybody and everybody you can and make it hurt. If this continues theres going to be a bunch of pissed off hunters.

So what?

Are conservatives going to cower in fear forever as the government strips them of all rights

"Lets all willingly get into the cattle cars on the way to the FEMA camps. We wouldn't want to provoke the government."

Lots of pissed-off hunters, who tend to be average joe’s with possibly union jobs, who may think twice about supporting democrats

(unless they buy that it is all republicans fault- there are some really stupid people out there)

A lot of people could go hungry this Winter if they don’t get some food in the freezer right now.

Though I suspect if the Feds can’t keep people off the Mall in Washington, they are going to have a harder time keeping people from hunting in Alaska.

Obongo’s slugs with guns only acknowledge orders laid down by him and certainly not laws made by dead people, such as Our Founders. Obongo set that precedent and it will be a hard one to shake in the future.

In Alaska, if it is the law and armed people attack you, they are doing so illegally meaning you should defend yourself. In this case the hunters are obviously armed.nit WILL happen.

Give them a few months and they’ll be the ones screaming the loudest about too many deer or whatever animals and then it’ll be the GOP’s fault all over again.

Alaskan authorities ought to arrest the Federal agents breaking the law. If they're serious. If not shut up and sit down.

We never bought steak. When deer season came, we had deer meat for breakfast, lunch and supper.

this federal overreach shows states and private groups and all citizens which lands and resources they must reclaim to curb tyranny, in this case wholly directed by ONE MAN

How about a local militia?

Some of these feds could be “dropped off” a few miles out in the tundra to make their way back.... or not.

The hunters should just tell the feds that theyre illegal aliens demanding amnesty. Then the feds would have backed off.

"They're all on foot," the gunsmith agreed. "I guess I could take your truck and go for help. But with no witnesses there'd be no reason they couldn't shoot you and say you attacked them." He paused, considering. "We could both pack up now, and drive away..." His voice trailed off. Run away from this two-bit assassination team? Behnke found himself thinking.

"But I'm not going to do that," he finished. "Help me bring the shooting bench and my gear over around on this side," he said briskly. "Then you can get in your truck and drive out of here if you want." Orville Cracker saw the look on the old man's face and shook his head.

"I think I'll stick around."

A lot of hunters in Alaska are Native Americans, Native Alaskans, and Eskimos who retain a right to subsistence hunting.

The feds better back off or the Democrats can just surrender Begich’s seat in the Senate to the Republicans.

When you include the Federale bureaucracy our Federale Gov’t is most definitely a Democrat/liberal/socialist government...and it is making plenty of enemies these days.

Very dumb! And will lead to more anti-statism and libertarian attitudes

Every time the Feds over react, they piss the locals off, fed officers get fired and removed/transferred, and then it takes the FEds 20 years to get the locals to want to get along. You would think they'd eventually learn a thing or two.

Couple years back, we had two fed cops start doing boat safety checks on the Yukon; ended up pointing guns at everybody, handcuffing & assaulting 70 year old gold miners; heads rolled in the Park Service; people were fired. The feds don't have the resources to keep the people off the land if they want to go there, Feds are just lucky it will be minus 20 in another two weeks and all the locals will be home watching the dish, feeding the wood stove.

ANd the Indians; well they haven't ever paid attention to any govt's laws; it's sacraligious to their world view, way of seeing everything. The Feds can't get the Indians to do anything they want them to; leave the Indians alone. Whites could learn a thing or two from those dumb Indians 50 years removed from the stone age, no joke.

Obama will even have the dems up here pissed off at his own Dems, nx election; Keep it up Big Ears; we need another Reagen in D.C.

"If this continues theres going to be a bunch of pissed off hunters." Might I add that as somAlaskans hunt for food for their tables, banning hunting will result in hungry, "pissed off hunters". Given the long legal traditions regarding substistance hunting, Bammy and his ParcMan minions are embarking on a classic case of awakening the sleeping giant.

“Try finding a copy. Mine’s under lock and key.”

“Unintended Consequences”, all 819 pages of it may be downloaded off the Internet for free.

Having said that, given the price of a like new copy, with intact dust jacket, I have a friend who similarly keeps a close eye on his copy.
