Discussed it with several wardens in the past. Had several land owners and renters tell me the same.

All I know is when I was deer hunting in Kansas my host said that I should not ever drive across any planted field, so I did not

And if it is wet you will get stuck (no if about it) it will not be fun getting out and that farmer will speak your name at the co-op or cafe and you will have a hard time getting permission for anything in the surrounding area wink

Like said above, farmer is paying to use. I would talk to the farmer though, might get you more places to trap if he sees you are considerate

Give'er the onion he'll let you know next year.
I had a rancher tell me it's ok I ride my wheeler on his place .
I did so for a few years and he asked me to look around for a dead cow for him.
And I did found it and cut the ear tag off like he asked ,
The next year I ask to trap again and he said who gave you permission to ride all over on a 4 wheeler like that.
What to do, some times you just can't win.
Oh well win some , lose some.


Let me sugar coat this

Get a small motorcycle. Way less impact than an ATV, get a dual sport and just ride it everywhere. That's always an option without a ton of snow.


Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand

Every farmer around here lets me drive on planted feilds. The only stipulation Is If It's wet stay off and once we have snow or after the first freeze your good to go. Every snow machine trail In WI probably goes through some type of planted field. And come spring you can't tell where they have passed.
And most of the ground I trap Is either bean ground or harvested corn fields and your not going to hurt that.

Pretty interesting rules for state trespass rights (hunting, trapping, fishing, hiking etc. ). Not uncommon here to have 1 guy rent the cropland, and then after harvest, another guy rent the stalks from the cropland renter. Suppose that is why here ONLY the landowner (the fee title holder) can sign the complaint for prosecution and legally have someone removed. Renters cannot and are considered hired individuals who can choose to produce a crop (or not) for a set cash rent fee from a starting to ending date. Our soils and weather are a lot different than the southern parts of the U.S. so when that winter hits they become as hard as ice so travel is inconsequential to the surface. Before the freeze there are Minimum Maintenance (dirt) Roads that you don't travel on even with a 4-wheel drive PU. Our Loess soils are unique to the mid Missouri River Valley area only to be duplicated in the Chinese Yellow River area, where freezing is very rare. 4-wheelers and S X S's are common field transportation here so a non issue even when wet and some type of vegetation is covering the surface. I still use some slide wires (not real quick for set up) when I'm setting a spot that I don't want (can't) to drive to daily. Use 1/8th cable with a sentry marker to indicate a catch and either use the ATV or leg work to get a closer look when wet................................ the mike
