I posted this earlier in Land Use Forum but thought it might warrant more detail and location here in the General.
With all the hunting in and around our area from a lot of folks that come from all over, I wanted to give anyone headed this way a heads up that the offroad rules and regs has really taken an enourmous change... backwards. Starting Dec 1 you won't want to be caught going off road in the Black Hills National Forest without a paid Trail Pass. Of course by "off road", I have to use it loosly as that no longer applies here. Trails are marked on a map (downloadable, look at linky below) or can be picked up at local forest management offices where you can pay $25 for a year pass or $20 for a 7 day pass.
Like I said, just a heads up if you are headed this direction!! I heard enforcement of this is going to be quite heavy as this is a great way to earn money!!!
