    Default 💲A pharma millionaire is suing four hunters for $7 million

    🤔 Get off my lawn! OnX is an app that’s intended to help hunters find public land so they can go after deer, elk, or whatever they happen to be hunting. At first glance, that may not seem like news, but users of that app get an invaluable view of just who owns the property around them, which is critical when trying to reach public lands where hunting is legal. They have also gotten a very clear view of something that is otherwise hidden from the public: how corporations, millionaires, and billionaires have blocked out huge chunks of public property so that they alone can access it—without paying a dime.

    They do this by creating public land “islands,” areas that are surrounded by privately held property. The public lands in these islands become de facto parts of the surrounding property. In most states, there is absolutely no rule that says the property owners have to do anything to allow access to that island of land.

    Now, in what may be one of the most egregious case of someone using their power and wealth to bully both local residents and officials, drug company executive Fredric Eshelman—net worth $380 million—is trying to make the situation even worse. He’s trying to block off huge areas of land even when he doesn’t surround them, by pressing a case that would make it much easier to prevent the public from reaching public land.

    In the process, Eshelman is trying to financially destroy four hunters for “trespassing,” even though they literally never set one foot on his property. The outcome of this case will affect not just hunters and fishermen, but hikers, bird watchers, artists, photographers, and anyone who simply wants to access land that belongs to all of us.

    I downloaded the app, signed up, and it seems it's going to auto-bill me $99 after 7 days. I can't figure out how to disable it. So beware of that.

    Exactly why I've never bound a CC to my phone.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    The four hunters need to read the book, "The most dangerous game" and then go hunting on ship trap island.

    Eshelman owns*23,277 acres near Elk Mountain, but in prosecuting this case against corner-crossing, he attempted to*block access to 1.6 million acres of public land.*
    I really need to see a map. This guy is a total dick but it doesn't sound like anyone else out there will let you walk thru their square of property either.

    The hunters bringing a special ladder to get over his fence doesn't sound right either so I would like to hear the whole story. They couldn't find any friendly locals that would let them walk thru?

    This story sounds like fail all around.

    It was not a fence it was a sign post. Sounds like they set up an A frame ladder. He went after them for "air space". The guy must be a genuine A#1 asshole!

    Of course the article had to say how Trump 'used the courts' like this landowner, and that the landowner gave money to Republicans. Irrelevant. An a-hole is an a-hole.

    Sounds like a good reason to get every left wing environmental group after this a-hole. Not from the hunting perspective but from the "HE doesnt want you to be able to access public land or experience nature" angle.

    Should go over well in the media if you spin it right.

    Just cart him out into the center and drip his ass off.

    Nature will sort it out from there and problem solved.
