I'm not sure if it's the group or the individual charge... I was sort of blasted away by the amount to fully grasp it.
But if the group, I'm all about having a group forum hunt :)
Well, I know there's lots of public land inholding that require permission to get to - and that permission doesn't even have to be given too if there is not public way to cross the land.
Trust me, there is no public road or way to get into this reservoir (unless you want to wade 2+ miles to it via the creek bottom, that's probably has barbed wire splattered across it in at least 8 spots. Doesn't that sound like fun, with a full load of decoys?
No easement, no nothing. You've got to cross this guy's cattle pasture to get in there....
Anyhow, maybe I will mention this to the FWP - though I doubt they can do anything about it. Seems a joke that no one can access the public land. I did remind the guy that most of the reservoir was surrounded by BLM land, but he kind of brushed that off, as if it didn't really count.
Any good people to talk to about this?
