:As a Hunter I am well aware of what is public land and what is private. On the East Coast Property laws are quite different. I could hunt anywhere it was not posted so long as it was out of town limits.
:My buddies wandered off public land while Dove hunting and got sited for tresspassing. This was in Butte County, California.
This was in San Luis Obispo, CA in an article concerning Hollister Peak a formerly popular area of private property for mountain biking and hiking. The quotes were from a local sheriff. They did the article when the new owner of Hollister Peak decided to begin enforcing no tresspassing laws.
If there was no fence and signs your friend probably could have beaten the ticket. I'm not advocating tresspassing, just saying in CA landowners sometimes choose to allow it or selectively enforce it against only hunters or trash dumping. Madonna Mtn. (Cerro San Luis) is one such place locally as well as Bishop's Peak which is fenced county property but open to the public for hiking and biking. Maybe I'm not recieving your message properly but you seem to be trying to intimidate people.
