    Hunting on GRR?

    What's with the guys and guns on Ridge Road? Is it deer season, and are there rules about how close to the road you can be and still shoot?

    deer season yup. First time I was there I saw bunch of them on the tops in the corners. Never heard a shot all day so they were just wasting time.

    I was alone riding up there a couple of years ago when I encountered about 4 guys with BIG COMPOUND BOWS! Just looking at them hurt! I had some 'Deliverance' visions run thru my head but I did somehow managed to pick up the pace a couple of MPH!

    I saw a ranger with two of them on the side of the road in full camo with monster compound bows. The ranger was writing what I gathered was a ticket. The brush is so thick up there, I don't see how they can get far from the road.

    a couple years ago I saw some guys trying to tie a deer to a huffy so that it's hind feet were on the pedals and front on the bars. I think they wanted to try to ride it like that up to the village (the road was closed). When I came back down they had it turned around over the bike and were all walking their bikes up the hill.

    Yes, there's a minimum distance you can shoot from a road. The definition of "road" is what can be the deciding factor. If it's paved, then it fits the description. Unpaved fire "roads" can be hunted from.

    Speaking of camo, I'm going to start wearing my camo cargo shorts from now on when I ride.
