"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a brave and scarce man, hated and scorned. When the cause succeeds, however, the timid join him... for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -Mark Twain
An adventure pass? Guess they are too important to understand that a federal judge trumps their authority. They will after they get to pay the attorney's bill.
This is their was of choking public land off....pretty soon you will see this tactic used on alot of other public lands....just another way to block hunting

Nuther reason to hunt outta state. They are stacking up.
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
The U.S. city with the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, Washington, D.C., has the highest murder rate at 24 per 100,000. The state with the most unrestrictive gun regulations, Vermont, has the lowest murder rate at 0.48 per 100,000.
