Wolf River Trails - Winter 2011 changes

Postby OutCast » Wed Oct 26, 2011 3:54 am

The WRT North of the Greenline is private property. The Yellow and the Blue trail run through this area. The owner of the land has leased it to crossbow hunters this season. The hunters have taken a bobcat and placed barricades around the lake, created a bridge, and bulldozed the blue trail back around the north end of the lake. The picture below shows the basic idea of the layout there. Where the two red dots are is where they intend to place deer stands. They do not want bikers, walkers, runners, hikers, or crawlers on the white trails that connect the blue and yellow on the south side of the lake where the red dots are. They state that the yellow and blue trails are out of the range of their weapons, and they have gone through the trouble to manicure the blue trail "back into shape" so that travelers can swing east and north around the lake. The area is posted with No Trespassing signs. The blue and the yellow trails will be barricaded to force traffic to stay on the trails and not venture onto the White connecting trails depicted in the picture below. For reference, the road shown in the below photo is I-40. The lower white mark is the Greenline.

Why did they have to kill a bobcat?

Was it killing their game?

if the same guy owns the land that Dennis (WXman) and I talked to during the Ironbutt, he's a super nice guy...

I think "Bobcat" is a skid loader, not an animal in this case. At least that's how I read it.

Rode thru there last night. Noticed all the moved dirt. Will make sure to stay out of range. I have enough issues that I dont need people shooting at me too!

After review: ‘The hunters have taken a bobcat” is now interpreted by me as: “The hunters using machinery have built a dirt barricade….”

P.S. I have personally seen several bobcats (the animals) on both sides of the Wolf River.

Maybe they would let someone borrow it really quick pump track comes to mind, or a few berms.
When did this relaxed ride turn quick?

Now you are sounding like Supt. Satterfield. But he wanted to use a Cat D9.

Plus that would make it more inviting to 4-wheelers.
