The landowners have requested a MANDATORY compliance of wearing Blaze Orange while hunting on our leased property.
The DEC placed temp barriers to prevent public access to the bridge. These are in place until gates can be installed. The club members still have the right to cross the bridge. So they can move the barriers and then put them back. When a gate is installed we will have a combo lock so the club members can still pass through.
The public will be able to drive the Buckhorn Road and the Windfall Road to get to the river. Some parking areas will be made to allow them to park. The public cannot leave those roads with their vehicles. More gates are inevitable as well on side roads that we and the club will have access through. I am hopeful that DEC will install numerous, obvious and detailed info signs for the public. So when the public is not where they belong we can call DEC and get them ticketed for trespass.
Initially it is going to be a period of adjustment. My experience is that the public might show up more initially. But a dead end road, bumpy at that, with a forest of cut trees is not all that appealing.
Make sure if you see the public where they do not belong to let me know. So I can pass along to DEC. Feel free to call Encon officers if you have issues to give tickets.
