Updated on July 26, 2022- This should be interesting. Will "Airspace" be included when accessing private property and be classified as trespassing?

‘Airspace’ trespass suit advances against corner-crossing hunters
Judge orders the civil suit against Missouri hunters to move toward trial in federal court.

Well, if you can't beat them in court, then go after them until the money runs out- Hopefully the money raised for the hunters will get them thru the case with a win.

I read the amount of damages they are asking for to my attorney husband and he laughed. :LOL:
Owner thinks that allowing public access(Which should be allowed from day 1) is going to reduce his value is grabbing at straws. Greedy ass Owner owns a ton of land and wants control of even the public land he does not own. What a joke!

And as my husband pointed out, how does this one particular group of hunters cause this loss of land value? Now if the entire public is allowed to trespass over his land (which they should be allowed) THAT would cause a decrease in property value (according to the owner). But this ONE group that crossed over ONE time does not cause a decrease in property value.

Ans so it goes on- lose one portion( See below) and then win one.....Pendulum swings according to the political contacts...follow the money. 2nd portion of the article below:

Access restored near Casper

"Although Vassallo rejected Hasskamp’s claims in Carbon County, the attorney resolved a longstanding dispute over public access north of Casper in Hasskamp’s favor. There, Hasskamp claimed, a ranch-owning family, gun-manufacturing outfit and hunting guide service had illegally blocked public access to BLM property by locking a gate across a public easement.

In his affidavit, Hasskamp named Owens Land & Livestock Company, Teapot Land Co. and Lost Creek Outfitters with blocking access. One or more of the entities “unlawfully installed and placarded a gate with No Trespassing signs, which is on a recorded public easement, on Twenty Mile Road, within Natrona County,” he wrote.

The gate and a lock on it blocked access from a public easement to BLM land, the affidavit alleges, a violation of the UIA. The site is about 15 miles north of Casper near the Antelope Hills subdivision.

“This office, with the assistance of the Bureau of Land Management, contacted the landowner and demanded that the lock and sign be removed from the gate,” Vassallo wrote Hasskamp. “The landowner has complied and we therefore consider that matter resolved.”
