4 Wheeler????

4 wheeler are not allowed in/on public land in texas, nor on our private lease so its not an issue. However, I was on a lease for 15 years that ran four wheelers the last 5, and it was a problem. The deer stopped bedding in our area, didn't do much feeding, became very aware what the sound of a 4 wheeler meant. Good luck to ya wherever your hunting.

4 Wheeler????

The Forest Service policy nationwide is no "cross country travel" with an ATV on National Forest land. This means you can't make your own trails or use trails that are not considered "official"(user trails). There are designated trails and roads that you can drive them on.

I know up here folks complained. "How do I get my deer out of the woods if I can't go X-country?" I say DRAG it like we have done for years!! I own an ATV and love driving it, but I know they can do some damage if used incorrectly.

In MN there are set hours for operation during gun deer season. You can only drive before and after shooting hours andfrom 11am to 2pm.
