are you talking about the sandbars and trails in wilcox and surrounding areas?
So.... what did he say about Camping?
The trails that we were on don't allow hunters/hunting dogs on them. the hunters have thier own fenced in area out there.
Not to be argumentative, but...
The areas you saw posted (I'm assuming you saw signs) are where private property meets the Forever Wild property. Any fences you saw were placed by private land owners. Forever Wild/State Wildlife does not have any fences. The Forever Wild land has a lot of private property mingled in with theirs. There are also some roads out there directing people not to drive vehicles on them. The gates on Hwy. 112 do belong to the Forever Wild/State Wildlife. I'm saying all of this with the assumption you went in on one of the "River Road" entrances and drove down to the Perdido River.
Also, I grew up hunting on this land when International Paper owned almost all of the property between Hwy. 112 and the Perdido River between the Phillipsville road and the state line. Even back then only the few private land owners had fences. Since the late 80's IP has been selling off their land to private owners and to Forever Wild. I may be mistaken, but I think some of the Forever Wild land is leased to them from IP who retain the timber rights to the property.
I'm going to make a call and verify what I have said about the fences is correct. I can't imagine the Forever Wild program's limited budget having the resources to put up fences around thousands of acres of land to control hunter's movements when free maps and signs would work.
Again, I'm not trying to start a disagreement here, just wanting to make sure we are all on the same page. I just don't want some of us to unintentionally create a situation where we can't ride on public land. It happens all the time out west with the BLM.
