With the up coming bear hunt there is potential for hunter- protester conflicts. Remember guys we are protected. Here is the law.

my friend went to the first bear hunt and there were antis waiting at his spot in the he just went home and decided to come back in the afternoon. when he got back in the afternoon, they were still there. he decided to just go into the woods despite the protestors. he started walking in and they followed him. he was in the woods about a mile and then decided to start running. he started running and the antis attempted to keep up. he ran about anothe quarter of a mile and the antis followed. he ran over a ridge and made a quick right and hid. they kept running deeper into the woods. by the time he made it out of the woods, it was very dark. he left them stranded in the middle of the woods without a flashlight or anything... thats what id do if ever confronted with and anti...:D
