    This document has been referenced a few times, particularly around the time Bunker showed up with his drivel.

    I am aware of this also. It's interesting once you start really diving into the document.

    It's just that it is more complicated than at face value.

    This would also end hunting on public land and private land if you have to park on a public road to get there. There is a time for a DC charge, this isn't it,and we have to get the word out on how the courts and some LE abuse their police power. The state sells hunting licenses so maybe they could be charged with entrapment. Article I, Section 25 is being violated again because of some courts ruling.
