Bridges & Gates in Pennsylvania's State Forest and Comunity Field Tom
The Old Tin Shantey Road,has been gated,since fall of 2013. NO Access,only the camp up by Mid State Airport,has access.
Another gate in Moshannon State Park,I have no problem with this kind of gate,roads where put in,due to logging,rseeded & re-planted.
Just thinking out loud here,why would the State,close off access to public grounds,when we more & more peope,turn to the public hunting grounds,to to more postings of private lands & groups of people leasing up other privite grounds,that used to be open to public use ?
I think that some of these Gated Roads on State Forest Lands,should be opened for the hunting seasons,both fall & spring,bo ahead & close them,in the Non Hunting seasons,just let the public utilize them,for hunting seasons . . .
Violet Ray Bridge,on middle Black Moshnnon Creek,close to I-80.
The NEW Huckelbery Bridge,below Black Moshannon State Park.
The New Clay Mine Road Bridge,over Six Mile Run.
One must wonder,where all the MONEY,comes from,to build these Very Nice Bridges,in State Forest Lands,would not a simpler,more cost effecient bridge,be more suitable ? I am NOT complaining about the bridges,just wondering,out loud
why such elaborate structures ar built,when many of the bridges,that EVERYONE,use,on there daily commutes,are in such Dire straights . . . . ?
On a brighter note . . .today I was fordunate enough,to have harvested a Spring Gobbler . . . .on public ground
