4wheelin_fool Posted December 1, 2011 Share Posted December 1, 2011 I recall walking up Purgatory road and just after crossing a small bridge, I noticed the arrow of the GPS pointing 80 feet west to a spot just behind a private property sign. I called the number and the lady who answered was not the same name as the person listed, and she didn't know anything about the place. I assumed it was an old sign and went in. However, I'm fairly certain that the NJ land trust property does not extend to that spot anyway. I had a cache recently being reported as being behind private property signs. (GCVC9Y) I was certain it was public property, but I called the recreation department anyway to make sure. They replied that it was still public property and open to hiking, caching, ect. I then called someone I knew in the police department who told me they were sure that local residents had put the signs up illegally to stop hunters from going back there. I suppose they could not find any more "no hunting" signs, as it was already noted on the existing Green Acres sign in small letters. I went back there and found an illegally placed deerstand, as well as empty bottles of deerscent and bulletshells. Even if it had been a legal area to hunt, it was still too close to houses, as they were less than 500' away.. I then removed the deerstand, as well as the signs. Cache on! Quote Link to comment
