Default permit link

First time i hear someone say you need a permit i thought it was a joke. but it wasnt till i read this that i really got a good laugh! Laws are bourne from a need for change to correct a problem. Has there ever been a known widespread problem in parks that brought on a need for a permit? this just does not make sense to me because I dont damage the turf or leave large holes. This is is in my opinion another useless law invented for the sole purpose of revenue.
http://www.nysparks.com/inside-our-a...nAndPermit.pdf

This is where our tax dollars go: to pay someone to create a document and that person probably never researched the subject and knows nothing of the hobby. But does know to make the county/state a bit of extra income.
When i pay an entrance fee to a park, I should not have to pay an additional fee for enjoying the park like everyone else. And they expect you to find the owner or to give anything worth over ten dollars to park police? LOL funny

They will not get my ten dollars for a permit! Besides the parks around here have been picked over well. private land is the way to go!

NYS is the absolute worste !!!!! I had to get a permit to clean the beaches at NYS parks of trash( pop tops, etc. ) Here in eastern NY I go to most parks very early in the mornings and only on weekends to aviod any contact with city, park workers and also people in general....I have had great success all summer and have had no problems...If they dont see you they cant ask you to leave right ???....good luck and HH

Many people use the "easier to get forgiveness than permission" philosophy. It works most of the time. Just be aware that you are representing many of us so please be careful when you dig. Remember parks may have shallow electrical wires near pavilions and water lines near fountains. Just sayin... In the meantimne HH and GL

buffalo is in erie county. public parks in the city of buffalo do not require a permit. they are legal to hunt. state parks and state forests in erie county are a different story.
