  1. Again, that's for the investigating officers to deduce and the court system to decide, if so challenged.
  2. They can. But it doesn’t matter as responding officers evaluate each response on an individual basis and use their discretion to level punishment, if any at all.
  3. Actually they were on an unplowed road a 1/2 mile from the authorized corridor trail system. The conservation officer speculated that the road may have been a groomed trail in the past. According to the article it is believed they erroneously followed their GPS to get where they shouldn't have been.
  4. The boys in Green....the AAA of the backwoods!

    Isn't John Rowe (ADMIN) a tool?
  6. How to keep snowmobiling alive in NH

    That's it. That's my new excuse for my temporary hiatus. Can't go 80 on the trails. Of course there's hundreds of bodies of water where I can stretch it out legally, and safely, if I need to scratch that itch. But no 80 on the trails? Damn, I'm going to Maine! LOL.......

  9. Reciprocal Weekend Cancelled

    Thanks Dennis...and thanks for taking my phone call the other day with the myriad of questions I had. Enjoyed the chat!
  10. Reciprocal Weekend Cancelled

    Well said. But what’s interesting is what I’m reading on social media, especially from folks up north. There seems to be a fairly significant group that would like to see it go away. Most reasons I see is that it attracts to many people to a very small area up north resulting in trashed trails. It will be interesting to see how it plays out, however it seems like a no brainer that it has a detrimental effect on businesses that banked on the extra traffic....feel real bad for them given the narrow winter window of opportunity they work with. Armand, what are you hearing up there?
  11. OHRV/Snowmobile Event Permits

    Given all that F&G is tasked with these days, with limited funding and personnel, I appreciate all that you do for us Dennis. J's point was well taken, and I am glad to see you explain what you face on a daily basis in your office. I also know Nigel very well. He is a great guy as well, and I understand his frustration with the ever increasing complications that clubs face across the State as they simply struggle to just survive. Its just sad that we are once again rolling in to a mostly snowless winter across the region south of the notches. Maybe, just maybe, the new makeup of the legislature will result in some positive changes for funding (and personnel) for your agency! Happy New Year.....
  12. Helmet Communicators

    Didn't use it on a modular helmet but Collet makes a specialized mic for those, and seem to have good reviews. And yes, I was always impressed with the range and battery life (believe me, my wife talked endlessly on the damn thing). I had a bunch of buddies that used 49Mhz transmitters. I always carried a small 49Mhz handheld in case something happened. One time riding up in Stewartston a few years back I got separated from the pack. Whipped out the handheld and got ahold of one of the guys to get back to camp. 49Mhz was always on par with the 900Mhz for range....sometimes up to 1/4 mile or more depending on terrain!
  13. Helmet Communicators

    I always had good luck with the Collett Communicators, even after they shut down briefly. Great range and battery life and the groomer alert beacon worked well for me. The one time I had an issue I actually got the owner on the phone when I called for a warranty replacement cord.

    I heard a rumor that to reduce costs for the website, John tried converting to LED bulbs. Apparently they don't break as easy.........
  15. Snowy winter on tap?

    Snowy day this morning on Ossipee Lake and over at the Canoe King (OVSC HQ) in Tamworth...
