Yup thats what it says but who enforces it last year I had to get really upset a person who had messed with my gear in 2010 and was threatened to be doing it again, when I stop to let them know that I had gear set in that area again, while they were walking their dogs in that area, I was polite and one guy was being belligerent and a total A- HOLE but after I had a enough, I set him straight of who was breaking the law and what goes around comes around and later when I went back to see if my gear was still there, I turned around in his driveway ! But a person should not have to confront these A- Holes, it has the potential to go wrong in a hurry. All I like is to have my gear and myself left alone, live in peace and do my job.
