    I am on a GPAA claim with my wife and we are just unloading and two vehicles pull up on a run off trench and 4 men jump out of their vehicles and start digging into the hillside and clarifying dirt as fast as possible. They fill up about 8 buckets of dirt throw them into the back of their truck and vanish. They acted like poachers do, hit the site quick, load up, and hit the road.

    So when you see people behaving in this manner what is the best way of handling this, call the BLM, police, etc.....?

    Our first dig here in Colorado we found three complete mule deer carcasses in the river bed with their antlers sawed off and reported it in Grand Junction to BLM, but who do you call about suspected claim jumpers and what do you say?

    Local sheriff, & the local BLM/USFS LEO.  Descriptions of people, lic.# if you can get it, vehicle description, and if you can get them, pics.  What will happen is up to the local law as to if they want to persue it.  And be prepared to get called as witnesses if it goes to court.
