Landowners across the state are very understanding of portage locations that are used for good reason. This one doesn't need to be used for any reason. It's nice to use the portage when you are afraid of the dark, when the wind is blowing, and when you are feeling lazy. This particular portage has been in use for 20+ years. The field is overgrown with weeds, the crop is not worth harvesting and is rarely snacked on by the cows. It's out of sight, and it's the most direct route across. I was taught by gore veterans that this is an "ok" place to portage as long as you are respectful while doing so. Why does it concern the rancher? The rancher already told us that if it was just us he wouldn't have a problem with it. He is worried about Rafters, Hunters, Fisherman and Campers hanging out on his land. He said he would not catch us anyway. The ranchers son understands why people use the portage and doesn't appear to care. I hope people will learn from this experience, and try to be understanding. In the past I've let the group decide, I've been a follower and not much of a leader. In the future I will encourage others to paddle around with me. It would be really cool if the rancher took down his no portaging sing, and replaced it with a tread lightly post. No one wants to anger the rancher or destroy the cattle's food source. I like the idea of giving back something to the rancher in an effort to resolve future conflict.

if you want a portage how about you buy the land. banks you are arrogant, yes "Why does it concern the rancher? ". how old are you? you still seem like you did nothing wrong. reread what you just wrote, rewrite it and try not to be a f*cktard. lots of land isnt worth harvesting, it doesnt have to be to be worth money. if some banks dbag trips breaks his ankle on that guys property whos fault is it? not his. sign or no sign stay the hell off private property, specially if it is unneccesary!

If you are going kayaking why are you portaging something that doesnt need to be portaged? i try for less portages....anyone else kinda confused on this one.

I hope some gore local pops you in the face.

Mike Perry wastes our time, You should focus on a resolution rather than being a fool. I talked with some folks who actually know you. They made it apparent that you think you know it all, but have little common sense.

When Caspermike AND Riparian find you to be in the wrong I think that speaks volumes..........

I think the resolution is to not trespass?
