Driving on game land roads?

So up in Northeast PA there aren't a whole lot of places to offroad, mostly game land roads. My question is: is it legal to drive on these roads if the gate is open, the game commission says it can be used for hunters, and as long as we don't get in the way of hunters? Thanks.

Probably depends on whether or not those roads go onto private property that allow people to hunt on them. The best thing to do is call the game commission or yor local police.

It sounds like what you are describing is what the Brits call Green Laning, common to Land Rover owners in the UK and in UK Land Rover magazines and forums. It may be that US land use laws inhibit lite off-roading on public lands due to environmental concerns.

Here in NE ohio there's not much game land but when we go out to colorado to hunt they have BLM land and the roads are public as long as you dont tear em up.

some gates at SGL's in penn are opened for hunter access during seasons.
those gates that are opened generally dead end in a parking area.

theres really not that much off roading to find on them.
habitat and cover crews as well as contracted timber company's use the roads so they are kept in good condition .
I've run many in a FWD compact
one thing you don't want to do is leave the road.the PGC comes down hard on those who do.

PA is tough. In my area the GC even posts "no motorized vehicles" signs on roads on private land. Many of my friends have been fined for wheeling where they shouldn't. Many of these areas we have used all our lives for hunting and wheeling. It just keeps getting harder. I recently joined a club so I can get into some trails and not risk getting myself into trouble.
