I always thought that scouting for big game from the air was illeagal. While elk hunting on Friday I came across a big bull elk in a meadow with 5 or 6 cows. This black helicopter that was flying all over the place just above the tree tops comes by while this bull is in the meadow the helicopter circles the meadow until the elk go into the trees. I tried to see if I could see some ID numbers but I couldnt. On my way out I saw two guys hiking in. When I got back to my atv there was a guy sitting in his truck and asked me if I had seen the 380-400 class bull that was running around in the area. This was after he ask me what I was doing in the area, and how long I planned on being there. He was a total A$$ I plan on calling the DWR on monday to report what I saw. The whole deal pi$$ed me off !
