  1. Ryan says:

    This initiative won’t change the land lock up situation. In this current age of lawsuits, many landowners have stopped allowing access due to just the risk involved.

  2. Talks with Bears says:

    Ryan – my understanding of the liability laws in MT – landowners can allow access without a fee or lease from the individual and have no liability (risk). This is why the Block Management works so well, the state pays the landowner not the person gaining access. My understanding, maybe the legal staff can comment.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
