Hunter Access Program property posted?

I have a farm next too me that I just saw on the PGC website is listed in the hunter access program with no restrictions. I've lived here for a little over 2 years and it's been posted solid with bright new signs since I moved in. There was an issue with a neighbor and it was closed since. How can that be? What benefits are they receiving for being enrolled? I am going to stop in and ask permission just too see what happens. I don't want to be a jerk to our neighbor but this seems wrong.

They get the Gamenews and free seedlings if they request some from Howard nursery... That's about it...

And pheasant stockings if they have cover.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I thought the pheasant stockings were phased out after the farming system was reorganized?

Nope, they still stock pheasants. It would be an even harder sell for a pheasant stamp if they didn't provide them for the hunters. The WCOs and deputies don't stock anymore it is all done by the food and cover Corps of course that could change.

where did I imply they stopped stocking pheasants??
I was referring to hunter access properties....

it was my understanding that when the reorganized the pheasant stocking program ,they eliminated the chick distribution program to the public and condensed the stocking program to SGL ,SP, SF

You didn't imply it, you said it! "I thought the pheasant stockings were phased out after the farming system was reorganized"? Either that or you were talking about phasing out putting socks on pheasants I have no idea what you are talking about with reorganizing the farming system.

They greatly reduced the number of pheasants being stocked on public access properties but I don't believe it was completely eliminated in all counties. Some counties don't have enough suitable habitat on the public lands so I think they did keep a few public access areas in the pheasant stocking program.


As for the original question I suspect that no one in the Game Commission is aware that the property enrolled in the public access program has been posted. Once they become aware of it I would expect the posted signs will either come down of the property will be removed from the program. Sometimes it takes a few years for that to get all sorted out.

buckkiller, call the regional office responsible for where you live and report the property.
