    Default looking for a camp to join

    Looking for a hunting camp.... ideal situation would be one with land, able to hang ladder stands and able to use ATV for deer retrieval. Would consider other camps without ATV privileges. Ready and willing to pay some dues.

    Question, is it legal to use ATV on private? It is the motorized transport restriction on SGL only?

    It's only legal on private.

    A lease, as mentioned would probably be your best bet unless you know people with hunting camps.
    The way I've seen it work through my hunting life is a few guys get together and decide to buy a small plot or a camp setting up the rules and conditions of that camp.

    Rules generally consist of various probable scenarios.

    Future children and what their status is as far as acceptance into the camp.
    Friends. How many, how often. Any charges for their stay.
    Maintenance and costs of running the camp.
    Additional possible members.

    Leaving the camp and what occurs.

    A lot of camps have a falling out between members and leads to bad blood.
    A camp I visited early on had 25 members.
    Some had kids and assumed they were all part of the camp.
    Some invited friends without approval of other members.
    It got ugly. Eventually dissolved. One old member bought it. Kids took over.
    Went into extreme disrepair and eventually demolished.

    So as an overview, I think it would be hard to advertise that you would like to join a camp and get any kind of response.
    All of the members would have to agree to allow it but maybe, just maybe, a camp could use additional revenue to keep running and paying the taxes.

    Good luck in your search.
    Opinions are like anal apertures. They all stink but mine.
