    Then what? Ticket? Will the pic have enough resolution to positively ID who was driving, license plate etc? Do you want to spend time in court because someone drove across your field? As I said I struggle to see the real world application of this.
    I have not heard what the penalties will be. You just have to drive right up the the vehicle and snap a pic. What is your answer to the thieving ?

      Stealing is illegal with or without this law.

          Hard to prove unless you catch dude with hose in fuel tank. Now you just have to catch dude on your property.

                  Something is wildly out of proportion with this law. $5000? Elk poaching is rather common around here and they can't stop that. Not sure how dedicated they will be to keeping people off my land.

                    I would assume so.

                      Not really. It closes some of the potential loopholes that abusers could claim in defense or which placed limits on law enforcement or landowners doing their own enforcement slash vigilantism, (depending on your personal stance)

                      It's a bit dicey but as policy it has the benefit of sounding like common sense to casual observers but also sounding directly responsive to SaskParty base. I'll commend whoever came up with it from that perspective as each camp will probably hear what they want to hear.

                      • I'm two generations removed from farming. Been a city dweller my whole life. Only started hunting about 4 years ago. This legislation changed nothing for me. I have always sought permission prior to hunting on any field. As have those I hunt with. Someone always gets permission or we don't hunt. Period.

                        I have been told no by multiple landowners, have thanked them for taking the time to talk to me, & I moved on. All have their own reasons for saying no, sometimes as simple as they have already given someone else permission, sometimes it was a bad experience, unfortunately, with past hunters. It is their land & their right. Period.

                        Those that give permission are always thanked. Rules are followed. We respect the landowners wishes and leave the land as we find it.

                        Have only had one close call but it wasn't with a landowner but their dog. Dog was friendly enough... until I approached the house. Freaking awesome guard dog IMO. Took me twenty mins to get back into my truck without getting attacked or hurting the farmer's dog. All because no one was home. I'm a lot more careful now if there's a loose dog & no outside activity or inside visible movement.

                        When I scout or seek permission, there's very, very, rarely a gun in the truck & the once or twice there was, it was always out of site, out of reach, in a case, unloaded, & locked. At the best of times I've been told I can be intimidating so I always make sure I am approachable & portray friendliness. It's a matter of respect. It's the same I expect when someone knocks on my door in the city, whether selling something or not. Respect & courtesy goes a long way.

                        I fully support the legislation to require permission. Anyone that can't, won't, or couldn't be bothered to, get permission from a landowner shouldn't be anywhere near a gun or be allowed to hunt.

                          I'm an landscape photographer who will also shoot (with a camera) wildlife if the opportunity presents. I've used RM maps to seek out owners of properties with photographic potential, and yes, there are a lot of numbered corporations shown as owners on the maps. I like the idea of phone numbers listed on signs, and I like the idea of an app that would connect hunters/photographers with land owners. I think, though, that it would be a lot of work to compile the information, and keep it up to date.

                                Use common sense and go and track it.
