This year I was thinking about taking my old atv hunting, I have always thought about using it but never have. I have actually never taken it to the woods at all, I primarily use it for working around my property. So I was wondering, do I need a permit if I stay on logging roads- or will anyone care? On gated road that don't have a sign saying "no motorized vehicles" can I go down them as long as I stay on the road? Are helmets required even while driving slowly while looking for deer trails and whatnot? From what I have read it seems as I need a atv permit, a saftey card, and a helmet... seems kinda crazy just for some logging road scouting, I understand why this is required for trail riding and the dunes. that's why I am asking, so I don't waste time and money on unnecessary things.
