Get Permission! This time of year Fish and Wildlife officers receive numerous reports from frustrated landowners regarding hunters accessing their property without permission. Many times fields, crops and windbreaks are damaged due to the inconsiderate nature of those who are trespassing on others’ properties. A lack of a “No Trespassing” sign does not mean that land can be automatically accessed. Since amendments to the Petty Trespass Act in 2004, landowners no longer have an obligation to post ”No Trespassing” signs on their property; therefore, anyone wishing to use privately owned land must first seek permission from the landowner or a representative appointed by the landowner. Hunting is a privilege, which could quickly be lost resulting in the seizure of the animal harvested and significant fines. For proper hunting etiquette, including respecting landowners’ properties, please see the full story on page 3.
