Court orders New Mexico to release contact information for all big game applicants - posted 6 days ago

For those who say your draw apps info is public info, please go ahead and post your full name, home address, email address, cell phone, and the last five years of your draw application for all states you've applied in, species and specific units you've applied for right here on GoHunt. Bet there won't be any takers on that offer.

I'm not an outfitter and actually irritated myself with the muscle some outfitters exercise in some states. But those saying a list of 300,000 names, emails, addresses, and five years of hunt draw information is public information are incorrect. In the business world this type of information is called a proprietary list of customers that is one of, if not the most, coveted pieces of information a business has. Most courts view this compilation of information as a trade secret. From a privacy perspective, states and the federal government do in fact consider customer information transmitted in a commercial transaction as private information. The information disclosed to James Whitehead is regularly sold over the dark web to hackers, spammers, identity theives, and unethical marketers. Forgive me for not believing hook line and sinker in the motives of a white knight that ripped off our personal information with the help of one judge with no appellate review.

The Vortex Razor UHD glass for the money is really quite amazing. My personal preference is 8x42 UHDs. They are so close to Swaro ELs (not quite, but dang close). For sitting behind a tripod, nothing beats my Swaro 15x56 SLCs. Every time I think about "upgrading" I look through them and they go right back into my essential hunting gearbox. I also like the 8x42 UHDs on a tripod, super steady images and clarity for long glassing sessions.

Clifford J., to be clear, I'm not saying Whitehead got SSN, DOB, or credit card information. He did get draw information, names, address, phone #s, and emails. There are federal privacy laws enforced by the FTC. I urge all to report the disclosure of their private information to the FTC.

@ Jay K., his post is the classic misdirection of casting himself as the white knight who's been victimized.
