is anybody keeping an accurate account of the landowner's actions the way he is keeping track of ours?
I meant to say that I was not harassed "this" time, last week we were followed down river, photographed, and even followed to the take out. The only way to not piss off the landowners is to not float through. Are you suggesting that we not float or fish through property that may piss off people that might take away your rights? If you dont do just that, arent you conceding your rights anyhow?? What good is the right to float if you dont exersise it?? We are not breaking any laws by floating, fishing, and keeping up to our legal limit, to hell with anyone who says I should not exersise my legal rights. To sit back and say "well, mabe you shouldnt stir the pot, just let things cool down" you may as well just give up. I have heard from some local fishing guides that the landowners on the Gunnison river are starting to yell and wave their arms because they feel empowered by what is going on with shaw. Wait until someone in your back yard yells that you cannot float, then we will see if you are willing to just sit back and not "PISS" them off!!
