Red Stag rampage? Thinking this may have occurred in Germany?

A Colorado Hunting Non-Profit is Offering a Reward for Turning In Unsanctioned Trailbuilders
@Hayek: You don't hear about dig days from hikers and trail runners, because they aren't fighting access issues in the same way MTBers are. IMO MTBers only do dig days for two reasons: 1) gain good standing from other user groups and 2:) because existing trails do not meet the standards that MTBers want, most recently flow and features. Dig days are ultimately self serving and not really about conservation whatsoever. And there's nothing wrong with that! But to characterize the motive for dig days to be conservation oriented is dishonest...

A Colorado Hunting Non-Profit is Offering a Reward for Turning In Unsanctioned Trailbuilders
BHA's sole mission is conservation oriented and adapts to its members collective desire to impact change through policy. The three main issues BHA give focus to are access to public lands, protecting public lands - including habitat conservation, conserving priority landscapes like the area mention in this article, responsible land management as highlighted in this article - and promoting fair chase and ethical hunting practices. They are a great organization and stewards to public lands. They even have Canadian chapters! Learn more about their mission here: https://www.backcountryhunters.org/mission_and_values To question BHAs commitment to conservation is to question the entire North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. They conduct annual surveys to determine who makes up their membership base and where to focus their efforts: https://www.backcountryhunters.org/bha_s_member_survey_2022_results BHA is not looking to limit access to public lands for any other user group, but are only promoting responsible public land use management while addressing the needs of wildlife. In this instance illegal trails compress elk habitat in a an area of special importance. Public lands are for everyone, but it is everyone's responsibility to respect and take care of those lands. I sympathize for Colorado MTBers complaining that legal trails are too tame and boring, as that is an issue we face in my own community. We have had success locally with our awesome bike advocacy group who has collaborated with local land trusts and conservation groups to build fully featured and fun trails on private lands on lands within conservation easements. The answer to is get involved and focus your efforts locally. Join a group, collaborate with other stakeholders, and be the change you want to see on the trail!
