Are you guys in the city? I though Canada had lots of wide open spaces. Are these pastures? We have lots of farms and woodlots around here and cutting shortcuts is almost always no big deal. Around here if people put up no trespassing signs they are usually from Massachusetts. I'm just surprised Canadians are getting just as uptight.

Trespassing is Trespassing and especially if there is signs it should be obeyed. Need to respect others properties they pay taxes on it, they own it so unless you have asked permission you should stay off it.

Yeah I guess you can say I get uptight about trespassers. I've always asked permission to hunt properties and landowners really appreciate it and give me the authority to kick others off . Maybe times have changed as our area gets more populated .

Seems I dont have enough posts yet to add an image.

Why is it that you assume nobody cares about you cutting across farm land and wood Lots? Actually, why would you cut across someone's land? Plain and simple, if it's not your land and the trail doesn't run across it, stay off. It has nothing to do with being Canadian...it's about respect for other peoples property.

You sound like a guy who doesn't own any land? Think you're entitled to go wherever you want.We have 156 acres. I love snowmobiling. I don't want sleds running wherever they want on my property!

We own lots of land and never cared if anybody rode a sled across it. Now riding a truck across it in mud season is another issue. Snowmobiles can not hurt the earth unless there is no snow. There should be more important things in life to worry about. Sleds ride across our farms every year and the crops always come up every year. No worries.

It's been my experience that the sledders that trespass will likely return in the summer with the atvs . Because, you know they don't respect shit. So yeah ,I would be upset if someone was riding in the back 40

I'd suggest more signage stating that there are cameras recording trespassers.
Then add chains across the trails...with visible markers on them...then t-bar posts hammered into the ground about a foot apart and a camera aimed at this obstruction, so if they mash it down, you have them for vandalism too.

Ample signage and regular calls to the Police should get results.

Well trespassing is low priority for the cops these days. I have submitted complaints for each person I could identify and it turns out they are just getting to my complaints now that winter car crash season has ended. The cops seemed very reasonable about it all and explained how it works. They will issue a ticket the first time caught and second time will be a summons for court. For the dude on side by side who ripped up a bunch of stuff with his tractor, he will get a special court appearance as it was more than trespassing.

I dont want to debate whether it is a big deal to trespass or not. I paid for the land so I will make the rules on it I also have a trail pass when I want to venture onto OFSC trails.

Will also fence the areas that need it over the summer but what throttles me the most is how when people are caught they plead ignorance and that it is not a big deal. I live in an area that I would classify as a 'feeder area' for the main trail system so the folks trespassing are all locals who live near by. They will get the message.

The trail cams I have are great, if one gets found, it is doubtful the others would at the same time. Pics are as clear as daylight!

You may want to have 2 cameras at each location "watching " each other in case someone decides to take one. I also put them up high enough in my hunting/scounting area that you need a small ladder to get them down. It least it makes it a challenge if someone wants them.
