    How many of you guys would like to lawfully be able to hunt from an elevated platform for predators at night? Just trying to get a feel for support.

    Thanks

    I most likely would never do it myself, but if it means more dead yotes, ya got my support.

    Support here - it should open up some opportunities for guys to hunt them from their various deer blinds. Thx Bob for looking into this!

    I may be wrong but it says you can hunt from a tree stand. it does not say anything about a raised ground blind

    I'm for it. But I think it would tend to anchor you in a sport that requires movement. I guess if you just want to sit out for a while it be useful.

    Not sure I would go out of my way for it but would support. Too bad we cant have the elevated trucks like they do in Texas.

    On a purely safety standpoint, I'm amazed that it isn't allowed. The centerfire rounds that were just legalized (260, 243, 22-250, 6.5 creedmoore, 26 nosler) are well known 1000 yard cartridges. You'd think they would encourage us shooting those downward instead of level.

    Yes absolutely. Lots of spots already setup on field edges for deer. Much safer shooting into the ground as well.
