Back to the waterways debate, it is obviously just that…a debate. If you are from TX you will more than likely interpret the laws pertaining to waterways differently than if you are from OK. Both sides can point to source documentation to support their argument. The only true answer would come from a judge and how he/she decides to interpret the law on that particular day. So back to the group of guys from TX that are trespassing. For the sake of debate, let’s take their “trespassing/not trespassing” time they were caught on the Red River and throw that out. They were also caught trespassing on a very good friend on mine’s wheat field; no waterway involved. That’s black and white – no debate. They were trespassing. THAT my waterfowl friends IS the issue.
Agree with the first part, but like I said - when incorrect info gets posted, it's gonna get corrected regardless of the main topic. If people wanna drag it out and try to argue about it, then so be it.
State law conflicts with Federal law. Supremacy Clause. Done.
Nothing to debate. The only documentation the pro-state side can point to is state law, which is overridden.
If taken to court and pursued to the full extent, state and/or landowner would lose.
Also, like I have mentioned multiple times before, average Joe isn't going to go through the trouble of that, which is why this illegal state law still exists.
