    Even if the water was, you would have to have legal access to it. I can't park in a persons driveway and open their side gate and walk thru their yard to go to the beach or lake. Do it with a gun and it is bad. Do not know much about the property involved but I would be willing to wager a gentlemans bet that that approach will not fair well.

    So they walked across private land to hunt public land?

    Issues are litigated multiple times frequently. Just cause one court says its so doesn't make it so. And with Felony trespass with firearms looming Id be breaking open the wallet to get off!

    I find it hard to believe that they hunted 3 times, duck hunting none the less which is not a quiet activity, set up blinds with 9 people, all the while knowing they were on private land. They had to reasonably believe they were in the clear.

    Onx Hunt App, which they said they were using, mirrors public records in that area. They also said they did not cross any fences.

    The devil is in the details.

    The landowners in that area have been waiting for someone to take the original verdict back to court on appeal. If the verdict is upheld it will set legal precedent that has far reaching impacts. In the mean time, because of the original finding, trespass cases will be made at the landowners reques.

    BTW, you cant always trust the info you find on an app. I know of at least one that shows an area as public WMA that isn't and never has been. Look at the FWC.pamphlet for the area in question if you want to know what is and isn't publicly huntable.

    IMHO...as a land owner, anyone , fireman or not ( btw, what does that matter ), that is has the nads to knowingly climb someone's fence, and go on and use someone's property with out permission, should get some kind of punishment. That does not happen in Decatur County Georgia because of the fear of self policing. The whole fireman angle is nonsense. He could loose his job over ducks. Stupid.

    Even if there were no fences, ignorance is no defense. Here's a fact, every piece of land id owned by somebody. If you are a hunter, you had better make dang sure you are not on private property. That is very dangerous.

    Just guessing on the area based on the news reports and property appraisers records, but onx differs on a boundary line that separates Tucker land from public water.

    If these guys jumped fences 3 times with 9 people and hunted ducks of all things well within land they knew was private Id say they are idiots of the 9th degree.

    If they came in from public waters and didn't jump any fences or didn't pass any No Trespassing signs wouldn't they be in the clear?

    I guess we will see. Pretty easy to prove you didn't jump a fence if that was the case.

    no one ever accused FB of being well educated in anything either.
