What do you think is the definition of a publically maintained road according to your baiting permit. I received a citation for being within a 1/4 mile of a publically maintained road or trail. All my research says its owned by usfs but maintained by chugach electric for maintenace vehicles. the trooper had me move my bait and said he would ask at court to reduce it from criminal to a ticket for $500 with 250 suspended but everything i find shows no maintanience and in the winter snowmachines arent even allowed to use it. The trooper said he called 7 agencies to know it was publically maintained. I researched online DOT CHUCHACH ELECTRIC forestery. and everything mention chugach built the road under permit for mainentance vehicles its not part of a trail head in the dot documents and they say it is not managed. The trooper did walk to where a 1/4 of the roads was with us and i understand his not wanting someone injured but from the main road i was a mile off that so because a hiker found my bait i need to go to court . I am wondering what do you think the reg means and will a judge take into consideration these documents.
