    I dont have a book with me but im pretty sure it's in the book that if the land is posted u have to have written permission, if it's not posted u have to have verble permission..

    I'm pretty sure your supposed to have written permission to hunt any private ground you don't own.

    If it is private property, it does not have to be posted (Purple paint). All property not owned by the government is considered private property and a individual must have written permission to be on the property.

    If it isn't legally posted you must have verbal permission to be there hunting or fishing from the owner. If it is legally posted you must have written permission from the owner.

    You must have written permission, once you have written permission the land owners who own land around that property must by law provide access to the property you have permission to hunt by land lock law

    As already said, Not True! If true, then why is it the US Goverment acting thru the USFWS have it printed in their own pamplet, some parcels of refuge land is open to hunt but is surrounded by private lands and no acess is open to it without premission of the private land owners. The pamplet we sign gives us permission by the landowner, but yet even with that the owner says his easement to the property cannot be conveyed to others. They must gain that for themselfs.

    I've heard of them writing tickets for people hunting private when they had verbal permission but not written, they don't mess around when it comes to private land

    If it isn't yours stay the hell off of it. It is that simple. I have yet to ever figure out why people can't understand that concept. It all comes back to people being full of greed and disrespect.

    Worng wron wrong, i deer hunt about 1000 acres owned by a friend and his family, they have someone that has an 80 inside of their property, by law they have to provide access to that land owner to access his property, whether by court order easement, or by simply saying here is where u can go through mine to get to yours, the government owns that refuge land, not us, they must provide the government with the access and then we are allowed to use that access by having permission slips, there is natural heritage land in brinkley, 80 acres sourrounded by private, there is an old dim road, the land owner told the heritage people could park on the county and walk down that old dim road or ride a fourhweeler, and thats the way we access it to hunt it......look it up, if you got a lawyer and a government represenative and the private land owner there has to be access to the OWNER, opening day i was lectured by a game warden on this because we supposedly crossed a corner of ten acres to hunt this guys 80, the game warden looked at the owner of the 10 and said you can control where they cross, but you have to let em cross

    I have a degree in environmental planning and administration, ive worked for the corps of engineers, the state, and a environmental consulting and legal firm, i seen the land battles all the time.

    And on the permission aspect of it, verbal permission is acceptable as long as you can get a hold of the landowner in the need of proving your permission

  19. One cannot show up with written permission and expect to cross private property where legal easement has not been established..... and many properties don't have a formal easement.

    It is true that you cannot keep someone off their property in Arkansas....... but they might pay dearly for that access if it goes to court.... and until the easement is granted the landlocked landowner is at the mercy of the surrounding landowner if they so choose.

    I agree there has to be some form of agreement, you cannot just simply walk across, what i am saying is they cannot say you cannot cross, they can either cordially provide or formal easement, but it has to be provided and accomadated for
