Some time back I was running my sled down the Rex trail and I noticed that the trail on my fancy mapping GPS machine was several hundred feet frome the actual physical trail. This got me wondering, The regulations used the trail as a boundary. Should it be the physical trail or the documented trail in the GIS records? If the trail is the boundary and there is a moose ahead on the north side of it about 25'. Lets suppose he is a legal moose on the south side of the trail. If the GIS map shows that the trail is suppose to be 500' further to the north than it is physically located is that a legal moose or not? It would seem that it could be argued that the moose was actually 475 feet to the south side of the true surveyed boundary. It would seem that the latest GIS survey should be the standard as those boundaries do not move unlike a trail which is constantly changing and branching out.
So what do you think true GIS or physical boundary, which one matters? Or is there a bunch of grey area moose we shouldn't shoot for fear of having out guns and hunting rights taken away?
