Tator, When I said that we dont need permission I should have also mentioned that as Hunters we respect the priviledge to have open access to their private land but only through the generosity of the individual landowners.
The landowners can at any time ask anyone to leave their land or they can post their land as they deem necessary. I personally get permission each and everytime I hunt on someone elses land even knwoing if their land isnt posted, permission is required.
Last week, I went to check out a farm I hadn't been to in maybe 20 years, tha Farm's changed hands now and the land is all posted but I contacted the new landowner and he gave me permission to hunt next week for our muzzleloader season.
The reason he posted the land is because one of his "new" neighbors is from Massachusettes and as soon as he bought the bordering property he posted his land but didnt hunt his own land he decided to hunt the farmers land, well the farmer spoke to him about it and of course it was said the land will remain posted, the farmer didnt like that massachusettes attitude so now the farmer will give anyone permission to hunt except the new mass neighbor.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
