Here is an article that was in the Tennesseean today. That it would be interesting reading.

Has to do with TWRA letting Gas and Oil exploration on some of the WMA's including Royal Blue and Catoosa.

Catoosa use to to be a great place to ride when I was a kid...no you can't ride there anymore. I have been told you can and you can't. So I went to the TWRA plpace here in Crossville and even called Nashville and they said NO ATV riding at all on Catoosa. Sad

That is not totally true. According to their rules:

Quoted from the Hunting Guide "ATV's and motorized Bikes are permitted by individuals possessing a hunting and fishing license and a WMA permit,, from the fourth Saturday in August through the Spring Squirrel Season."


The Spring Squirrel Season ends June 14th.

Also Catoosa is closed to ALL USERS from Feb 1st thru the Last Friday in March.

Therefore based on their information I am going to try and do some riding up there in May. This would put me out of the Turkey Season and the only hunters you may encounter would be small games. I would also imagine that you must stay on the designated roads or trails.

I will be testing this out and let you know how this works out. If you call on the phone you will always get the NO answer out of the TWRA. Everytime that I have called I have too.

I am just going by what they told me.....as far as geting out in a group to ride.....they sai NOPE!!

Oh I agree. Forget about taking a group ride in Catoosa. They would be against that. I think as an individual rider you would be less likely hassled. If you do get stopped and asked what you were doing up there I have been told that Scouting for Hunting locations is allowed.

At most two ATVs together. I rode there several time in 06 under these same conditions. I never had a problem. I always carried my gun along... so I was hunting. As long as you have the appropriate license for the season... that is, don't get caught with a Small Game permit during a Big Game season. I was thinking these same thoughts last evening. With my Sportsman license, I am good to go until the end of the spring squirrel season.

Remember, it's what's written down that makes the difference. If the rules are written for the public, all the so called official talk in the world don't mean squat.

TWRA Holding OHV Community Hostage

Nashville, TN - Legislative negotiations broke down Tuesday as the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) continues to hold the Tennessee Off-Highway Vehicle community hostage over federal funding expenditures.

"I just can't believe a governmental agency could be allowed to callously disregard the mandates of an Act that was passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor of this state" comments Iva Michelle Russell, Legislative Chairman for the Tennessee Off-Highway Vehicle Association (TOHVA) and Executive Director of OHV4TN. "The last time I checked, the needs of the people of this state were more important than governmental primacy".

The legislative negotiations revolve around the 2004 Tennessee Off-Highway Vehicle Act, sponsored by now Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey which started as a Governor's initiative in the late 1990's. The Act created an Off-Highway Vehicle program in the state of Tennessee that mandated a statewide system of environmentally sustainable trails as well as adult and youth safety education.

TWRA, the OHV program's current agency home, began receiving OHV federal grant money in 2004. TWRA has been exclusively using the funds at their Royal Blue facility in East Tennessee while also taking in OHV permit fees that have risen steadily over the years to over $64,000 in 2007. Discounted Hunting/OHV permits are not included in this figure. There is still $1.1 million in unused grant funds to date. The TWRA Commission has voted each year not to create further trail systems across the state nor create the adult and youth safety education programs stipulated in the Act.

The 2009 OHV legislative agenda (SB280, HB365) would transfer the OHV program from TWRA to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), allow TWRA to keep their Royal Blue facility, and mandate an equal distribution of federal funding between each grand division of the state. "TDEC is in the trail building business and we certainly don't want to be with an agency that has no desire to do anything with our program except take our money. There are over 880,000 OHV users in our state that are not currently being served and that is ridiculous." states Russell.

In the Tennessee Governor's 2002 Off-Highway Vehicle Study, OHV recreation had an estimated statewide economic impact of $3.4 Billion. Neighboring states have created trail systems that have successfully aided local rural economies as well as tax revenue. In a recent study, West Virginia saw an increase of $622,752 in state and local tax revenue, direct income of $2.7 million and 146 new jobs from their Hatfield-McCoy Trail System located in 8 WV rural counties.

I have received some information from the TOHV about the new proposed License Plate for Tennessee. Take a look at the link below for some of the design ideas that are being put together.

I just got off the phone with Steve Melton, President of TOHVA. He said just as soon as they nail down the design that they will have to PRE-Sell 1,000 license plates before the State of Tennessee will even consider producing these. The Pre-Sales will be thru the TOHVA organization. I will be waiting anxiously for the word on this.

Also had a lengthy conversation about getting places to ride like Ky and W. Va. He said we have to get City, County and State Elected Officials behind the OHV programs and let our voices be heard in Nashville. He and his group have invited City and County officials out on a ride and got a favorable response. Education is key. These Government Officials need to hear our voices. They have the voting power to make all this happen.

Mr. Melton is a very passionate person about the OHV sport. I could tell that just from our conversation.
