The way that they wrote this, it even includes a SNOWDOG. (I think that someone must be spying on this site...)

OHV Definition

An off-highway vehicle (OHV) is a self-propelled vehicle used for recreation or cross-country travel on public lands, trails, easements lakes, rivers or streams. The term includes but is not limited to motorcycles, ATVs, dune buggies, amphibious vehicles, air cushion vehicles, and any other means of land transportation deriving motive power from any source other than muscle or wind. Four-wheel-drive trucks registered as motor vehicles are not considered OHVs.

Apparently, however, a kite powered sailboard system would be exempt.  Behold, the next Smitty... ;D

Sounds to me like a Senator got hungry!!!  Happens all the time nowadays.  They implement laws to make $ and half of it   goes in their pockets.  They're all crooks.  If they aren't when they get elected, they soon will be.  Its like once they get elected they get contaminated by those already in office and the special interest groups.  All they want to do a argue and stick with their parties lines, no matter the consequences.  "NONE" of them truly cares about the people anymore!  At one time the elected officials didn't get paid, they did it because they wanted to do good for their communities.  I think we need to go back to that.  They shouldn't get paid until they leave office and then only get paid what their constituent's think they are worth, dependent upon what they accomplished in office.  Bet your butt things would change then!!!

To all the off roaders out there leave the elk alone this time of year they are stressed enough, the cows are pregnant, and they just got over a long hunting season. They deserve a break. Leave them alone. Saw it the other day. Dude wasnít even close to being on a road. Nothing makes my blood boil more then seeing OHVís doing what they arenít supposed to do. Itís becoming all to frequent. Have a good evening!

its for designated trails and roads that are there for people to use their OHV's on in the first place. They should have to pay. Personally, I would be happy if they shut down every trail to motorized use. If you can't take a full size vehicle on it, walk or get a horse.

"Both" you guys sound like young healthy men.  I'll guarantee you that your tune will change as you get older and your health fails you.  Especially if you still want to hunt and fish in those areas!  I use to walk five to ten miles a day hunting in Michigan's northern woods, now I struggle to walk to my mailbox.  But, I still can get outdoors and enjoy it, with a little help!!!  Just saying.

The definition of OHV doesn't specifically list snowmobiles, but appears to clearly cover snowmobiles.

Your narcissistic comment clearly shows you care very little for others.  Its all about me!  I pray "YOU" don't ever get sick or have an accident putting you into a wheel chair.  You'll eat your words every day for the rest of your life.  Have a good day Sir!

When I get older and broken down Iíll focus on a less physically demanding hobby. Like ice fishing. Which this fee has absolutely zero to do with.

As far as continuing to do what we enjoy when we get older, or injured, wheelchair bound or anything else that takes it from us, what makes us entitled to participating for life? Be happy for the time you get and make the most of it while you can. Making things easier and more accessible isnít always the answer. Neither is shutting everything down. But a permit which generates revenue to maintain the trail system isnít the man sticking it to the people. Read the bill.

Bobberdown, I like you, I think you are a funny dude, and we agree on a lot. That said, I think we just hate people that take privileges, then mis-use them, and then think that privilege should be a right!

... old, old timers didn't have power augers, or sonar, or scopes for their rifles, or compound bows. Doesn't mean I'm not old school, doesn't mean I'm not hardcore, but if I can avoid it I'm not going back to those times.

Had to buy a trail pass for my sled to have the luxury to ride on a groomed trail. The problem I have is paying for a pass to ride a "forest circus" trail that has had absolutely no upkeep (spring, summer, fall) no matter how many trail passes that get purchased. These fees need to go to local trails for the benefit of the local economy and residents. That's the major beef I have.... the dollars I pay to use my trails are not being used for those trails... And make no mistake,.... those are our roads and trails! Not the Forest Circus' no matter what their ego says to the contrary. They are only employed to take care of them and yet somehow they weaseled their way into policing them >:(!!!!

and I'm sick of buying a permit to be a human!

Yeah and that horse should have a off-road sticker on its ass. Horses cause as much damage to trails and roads as OHV do. Why do you think all the old mining trails are still around that people hike on? How much fuel tax does a horse generate vs OHV? All the fuel used in those machines and 90% of them donít touch pavement.
Yes some dinkís do abuse the OHV rules and tear crap up but there is also a ton who donít.
This closing crap down business is getting old. Montana has a lot of revenue coming in year round from OHV and sleds. Lose that revenue and businesses are gonna close and taxes will go up and then people will be b***hing about why.
