Middlefork nailed it.
I don’t even hunt there, nor care too.
I was actually looking out for...drum roll... the OP!

That's the problem, all of them are not "peaceful, non-violent" tree huggers.

I have ran into the violent, argumentative, vandals at those parking lots along with them on the trails to and from.

Some will just sneer at you or say something under their breath but there are those that like to flatten tires and shatter glass out of vehicles.

Yeah, it's no coincidence that the words ignorance, arrogance and belligerence sound so alike. The first one usually turns into the second one and then the third. Dumb people feel the need to act out to prove their stupid beliefs. Best just to avoid it, especially on hunt days. It's easy to do for me, I'm on the trail at 4:00 AM and none of the treehuggers would dream of being up that early. When you get back to the parking lot it's a lot of "Is that legal?" and I like to say "Boy I sure hope so!" or "New here, huh?"

Go, kill, eat. Screw the haters that feel differently.

Personally, I never hide the fact that I'm a hunter, nor my intentions. I let it hang out because there are a lot of new people in Utah, and I'm not going to curb myself to fit their feelings. They came here, they better get used to it. That said, I'm polite, but I never hide my intentions. I just like to avoid people in general. Heck, I avoid other hunters when I can.

I have come to firmly believe, that people who espouse a certain political ideology, have no limits to their level of hypocrisy.

I'm all for talking it out with anyone, angry words and shouting, no big deal. The difference between that and this situation though is that you'll just get back to your truck with the word "MURDERER" scratched into it a few times and a couple windows busted. If I could do anything about it it would be different, but the passionate ignorance of the animal rights folks generally has them destroying your stuff while you're not there.
