Hunters in central Utah hoping to find some deer this weekend stumbled instead on a marijuana farm worth millions growing in the mountains.

The pot plant collection is the latest of several discovered in Utah in recent weeks, this one estimated to contain several thousand plants, according to KSL-TV.

One hunter described the scene as “quite an operation” complete with a pressurized watering system using a spring from the mountain itself, KSL-TV in Salt Lake City reported.

The hunters also found two men watering the plants, one allegedly armed with a handgun, who police believe were actually living at the site and guarding the operation, the station reported.

When police approached, the suspects “grabbed what they could and took off running” — but eventually Jose Rodriguez and Cesar Duran-Frias and were arrested, Sanpete County Sheriff's Sgt. Greg Peterson told KSL-TV.

No additional suspects have been named in the case, but investigators were keeping a watch on the site as they worked to remove the massive number of plants, the station reported.

"Especially as much as there is, it's really good to get it off of the mountain before it is harvested and before they start selling it and getting it on the street," Peterson told KSL-TV.

Best argument in favor of hunting I've yet heard. Now taking recommendations on a rifle.

Sounds like the hunters were lucky they didn't run into armed guards with Uzi's or AK-47's or BAR's. There have been several instances of hunters being killed when stumbling upon these fields.

It does happen...here in the south, more than one would think.
Lots of money in this crop....
I hunt 3000 acres and it is worth being cautious where you go and what you see.
I recomend either a .270 or .308. Browning A-Bolt.

I just got a .338 Winchester magnum, that should work well too. ;-)

Can't go wrong with those choice of calibers. My brother stumbled upon a nice crop about 10 years ago here in upstate, NY. Unfortunately it was in late November and the frost had hit it pretty good by the time he'd found it. Pretty harsh smoke, but a nice buzz nonetheless. I'll never forget him telling me the story as he passed a very large amount my way a few days later. The hardest part was stuffing his pockets without some of the other guys in his hunting party knowing what the hell he was doing.....I've never had the good fortune of this experience...

I deer hunt on a small 160 acre farm not much chance me stumbling upon something like this. I use a Ruger M77-30-06 bolt action. Just sighted it in 3 weekends ago.

Why hunt for it. It grows along about every creek in Twiggs County. Especially those close to the cattle ranches.

Ron, you could always plant some yourself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Man, I have to stay out of the political threads or I will have a freakin' heart attack. Which is why I am posting this in a non-political thread. (Please don't give me a hard time for it.) I give all you guys a big hand for being calm enough to respond rationally and with humor to some of the crap I also see written.

I can't actually believe that people would question O'bama's citizenship status. Do they have any clue how people get on the ballot in local and state elections? Do they even understand that there are many, many high priced lawyers on side of the ticket actually going over each signature with a fine tooth comb? To even consider that one of these lawyers would have failed to search for evidence of alien status in his first election to whatever it was he was elected to is beyond my comprehension. Are people really that ignorant of the political process?

I have to say that I am pretty much a liberal in a family of conservatives and racists. This election is going to be a lot closer than we think just because O'Bama is black.

And if he loses, will that be the only excuse? No possibility that his liberal philosophy, socialistic proposals, or wealth redistribution schemes might play into someone's thinking? Just black. Makes it easy to demonize people who don't think like you, I guess.

Ummm Sarah Palin is more socialist than Obama. Her whole claim to fame was getting the oil companies to share their wealth with the citizens of Alaska.

Besides there are some elements (education and health care) of Democratic Socialism that might just benefit us (if implemented competently and correctly). After all there are about 250-300 million people in Western Europe and Canada living very nicely. You don't see them beating the door down to come here.

The most powerful and successful professional sports business in America (NFL) is partially socialistic with revenue sharing allowing small market teams like Green Bay and Buffalo to compete with large market teams.

You can grow many, many plants on just an acre of land.....Or in a coat closet, for that matter..

Friend of mine likes to randomly place them along the side of backwoods, dirt roads....It's surprising how hard they are to notice even when you know they're there.

I like you choice of caliber. Can't go wrong with a 30-06. Good for everything from white tails to Moose( a little light for Moose, but certainly will work in a pinch), and everything in between.

Well this thread went way off the mark, but I guess I'll respond. There is no door to beat down, have you seen the immigration problem? ;-)

Incidentally, they do come here...when they need a life saving organ transplant they can't get from their own wonderful fail safe healthcare programs.

For you true hunters - my 10 year old wants to try his luck in the deer stand with me this year. He is good with a gun - I started him with a daisy, and he now is the proud owner of a Ruger 10/22. My question is this - what caliber should I get him for deer hunting at his age? I didnt grow up hunting, so I have no expierience to fall back on from childhood. I hunt primarily with a 30-30. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

The 30-30 you already own is a nice light caliber weapon to begin him on....I would suggest you let him shoot it several times at a stationary target over the course of several days before you let him attempt to bag something with it, however. By the way, I don't know the rules of your state, but here in NY he's too young to legally hunt big game. We're proposing lowering the age from 16 to 14.....In fact, it may have already occurred. I've been out of the loop on the big game end of things for a few years. Not sure why, except to say that I've gained a new appreciation for all life forms over the past couple of years. Maybe it's an age thing....

With all the lefty gun sites popping up on the Internet it's only a matter of time before someone starts a pro-gun, pot farmer group.


Legalize it, and I'll damn sure advertise it...

Nuwaydog...if you're in Georgia your son can hunt as long as he is under direct supervision (within sight or hearing) He does not have to take the Hunters Safety Course until age 16, but I would recomend him taking the course anyway.

A .243 would be a good choice. It's a light recoil round with great accuracy and plenty of stopping power. Most of the major gunmakers offer a youth sized rifle that would fit his smaller frame and arm length.

My neighbor also swears by .243 as a starter for young hunters.

At age 10, my son was shooting dove with a 20 gauge. Recoil of the 30-30 isn't as bad as that.
But, I'd check at Arvin's for something like a H&R or an old Savage in 243 or 7mm. At his age, the stock on a "regular" rifle is too long for comfortable shooting, and the barrel may be too heavy for him to keep level for very long.

Cut the stock down about 3 inches and slide on a slip on recoil pad, you can cut the barrel down to 18 inches, but I really wouldn't take it down more than 19 inches. Remember to countersink the muzzle with a conical grinding stone to get rid of any burrs. The burrs can cause a bullet to fly wild.
I'd also suggest a low power scope since you probably want him to get the deer close for a better shot.
