Cassius: "Did Cicero say anything?"
Casca: "Aye, he spoke Greek."
Cassius: "To what effect?"
Casca: "It was Greek to me."
And so to me the regulations regarding controlled use areas are written in Greek. Why do some say "use of motorized vehicles or pack animals prohibited" and others include a qualifier "except aircraft."
Is one to understand this to mean that aircraft are not considered motorized vehicles? What about boats? They certainly have motors. Unfortunately, the definitions section in the regs only lists motorized land vehicle, which I believe I understand. That would be a vehicle with a motor that operates on land, such as a car, truck, snowmobile, or quad. This definition does not cover boats or planes.
I, for one, believe it to be complete BS that an aircraft is allowed in an area that restricts motorized vehicles - if indeed that is the case. We have already been around in circles about how the guides and the State are in bed together, and that airplane hunting is something that we must live with - however unethical it may be. So that is not the point of this question.
I just want some clarification on which motorized vehicles are actually restricted from a CUA. If you want examples, check Tonsina CUA and Yanert CUA.
