: "There are bag limits"
:And if you surpass bag limit's you are poaching. Also if you are on private land you MUST have written permission from the land owner or you WILL be sited for Trespassing just like any other type of hunter would. Land does not have to be posted. Be careful, the state is looking for revenue any way it can get it, the fine for tresspassing goes straight to the state. It's a fast, easy ticket for a Warden to give out.
A recent newspaper article I read said in order to be trespassing the landowner must have not only a fence but signage against trespassing every so many feet. If there is no fence AND signage then the land owner must personally tell you to leave or have previously requested the state to act as his agent to remove you. And then only if you refuse to leave can you be cited. Even then it is only a misdemeanor unless it is a repeated offense. Also remember their are fences on public land where you may actually go. The fences are there only to keep cattle in and not people out.
