Just a heads up the frustration with tourism and probably just one "bad apple" has reared its ugly head. I don't condone this shite because I travel to recreate and don't really wanna go through the same things. So if your going beware I guess.

We were there Sunday.Just a heads up the frustration with tourism and probably just one "bad apple" has reared its ugly head.

More than a dozen vehicles had their tires slashed last Wednesday at river access points along the upper Madison River, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.
Tires on 15 vehicles were reported slashed while parked at the river on the morning of July 14, Madison County Sheriff Phil Fortner said.
None of the vandalized vehicles had Montana license plates, Fortner said. All were parked at river access points between Three Dollar Bridge and Lyons Bridge, a roughly 7 mile stretch.
“Unless someone has noticed anything suspicious that day that can lead us in the direction of a certain person or persons, then it’s going to be difficult to identify a suspect,” Fortner said.
No slashed tires have been reported to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office in that area since the 14th, Fortner said, and, as far has he remembered, this is the first time this has happened.
While there is no identified suspect and therefore no identified motive, Fortner said his guess is that the perpetrator was someone who was frustrated with the influx of visitation to the Madison River. The river is a world-renowned fly fishing destination and is also popular for floating and other recreation.
A fundraiser was created on GoFundMe to collect money for fishing guides whose vehicles were among those vandalized.
None of the fishing access points have cameras in the parking areas, which means that if a suspect is going to be identified, it will likely be from tips of suspicious activity in the area on the day the tires were slashed, Fortner said.
“I’m sure somebody knows something and we’re hoping that at some point maybe somebody will make a call to us and let us know,” he said.
Tips about suspicious activity in Madison County can be called in to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office at (406) 843-5301.
Damn, Charlie. We had the best water of the year on Sunday. If you ever decide to start boating again you should give us a call. It was awesome...springtime flows of clear, warm water. No drysuit necessary, wetsuit optional. It was epic.Watermelon rag...lol. those start my fires every day in winter!! Upper Madison

Until someone breaks into your vehicle hoping to steal your guns.Don't know if this would help or escalate issues but this seemed to work set up in a field next to a facility I lived at with tons of expensive tools. I slept better and my dog had less to watch over. Set one on the dash with spent brass scattered around from a caliber of your choice along with some 50 BMG.

That's a first? Sounds like an inside jobSomeone broke into my camper (easy enough) and took all my good flies out of my fly boxes lol!!! They left all my camp gear, a pistol all the bedding all other shit. Just the new flies from all my boxes. Maybe 6 or 7 big boxes. They didn't take my rods or reels lol. I tie my own so no biggie but we figured they had to sit in there for awhile to do it and that creeped us out. Oh well I bet they caught fish cause my boxes are dialed lol. Fuckers
