That's garbage....funny...but garbage. Old school land owners are a breed of their own that's for sure.
the dude is thinking that if your gonna fish his hole your gonna pay for it one way or another!
Smells like class warfare.
This is the History of the fight over Mitchell Slough.
Taken to the Montana Supreme Court
Land owners owe $350,000.00 in attorney fees used to defend the public access.
Then the wealthy landowners tried to legislate that the waterways were private to reverse what the Supreme Court decided.
But they were shot down
Now Huey Lewis and neighbors are stopping the hunters as well.
Sounds like he sucks as bad as his music.
Okay I got to rant a little over this one...I can't believe what some dip shits do to try and protect a public waterway as there own. Cracks me up anymore. Reminds me of a few gated communities in Montana. I mean if I moved to California (rather but a bullet in my head) I would have to adapt to the environment, get use to flipping people off, locked cars, houses, gated windows, security systems etc.. why bring all that baggage up here with you?? A friendly smile and a wave still goes a long way in Montana, but the Bitteroot has lost this in my opinion.
On the other hand though, this looks like a great place to jump shoot a few ducks this fall,I'm not a very good shot and think his camera equipment might be missing a few parts, a few accidental discharges in his sprinkler system would be of benefit too.
How different is the automatic sprinkler from the landowner actually standing there and spraying you with a hose? You are standing on public property. In addition to it being angler harassment, isn't it some degree of assault as well? I doubt local enforcement has the balls to follow through with this.
I'm by no means in support of the land owner spraying anglers with water, but a grown man complaining that water droplets hitting him while he stands in a stream with fucking water proof trousers on is assault, is the epitome of American pussification.
Id bring my 3 wood and have a little sprinkler head driving range practice. Then we could frolic in the newly established slough geysers! Sounds like fun if you ask me.
I like it!
I'd use my .357. (Assuming I'm out of the city limits)
Better yet, I,d probly just use my air rifle and shoot out the camera lense.
Nope killed it. . . .
