Oh and about 600 acres...and wheeling in Iowa in general

The only reason we used to be able to wheel there is because it was managed and controlled by the Army Corps of Engineers, NOT the DNR. The Army would have training exercises there and when that was happening no one was allowed on the land. Otherwise they pretty much gave all vehicles free reign of the place. The Corps, for what ever reason, quit using this area and it's in control of the DNR now. The DNR is full of hateraid for full size rigs and thus we are not allowed. I am pretty sure that this land was not offered up to the Trail Hogs as I was a member of the Trail Hogs and I don't recall hearing of this.

People, we have no public place to wheel IN THIS STATE!! NO WHERE!

There is an association called the Iowa Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs that has been trying to work with the DNR, local, and state governments to get wheeling access to full size rigs. I would recommend to any person living in this state to join a club involved with the Iowa Association and get involved. Ask questions and educate yourself about the situation. Now that we have a new director of the DNR and a new governor there is renewed hope and more opportunity to get our side of the story heard.

Search for the IA association, join a club involved with the IA association and get involved. Hell go form your own club and join the association.

Not true, my buddy helped them pull out a stuck H1.

Not sure about this either. At one of the atv club meetings my buddy attended, there was a DNR officer that told them that was the case.
However, I wasn't there, so I didn't hear it myself.

Oh fuck..I'm not going to argue with you about who did what. My point was that the DNR wasn't managing the land. I was out there and turned away because it was guard weekend and the whole place was shut down. You better get Hercule Poirot on the case.

You aren't sure about me not hearing about the DNR turning 600 acres over to the Trail Hogs? What is your deal? Thanks for your attempt to discredit me.

Dude, stop being a pussy. I told you what I was told by someone who talked to a DNR officer. I didn't say it was true, as I said, I wasn't there. Maybe the officer was wrong, maybe you are. I don't give a shit either way. All I do know for certain is that 600 acres is closed to trucks and that really sucks. Even if it wasn't exactly hard core, it was close and I have had a lot of fun there in the last 25 years or so. As you said, we now have no public place to play in the state of Iowa. I totally agree with you that we all need to get together and do something about it.

big85blazer is right. the corps of engineers ran the land at 600 acres until the government signed it over to the state. at which point the dnr took it over. it was also around this time that everything started going downhill. once the state had control they could do with it as they saw fit. and he's also right about it being closed during drill weekends back then too. maybe your buddy got lucky, but they didn't allow you to run in there when they were in there. it was probably a right place right time thing. but above all else now it doesn't really matter. there isn't enough space left to bother with fullsize rigs anymore anyway. and i sincerely hope we do get a public orv park in iowa, but i'm not getting my hopes up. and lastly i wholeheartedly agree on everyone get into a club, hell, get into as many as you can. and we all make our voices heard. that is the only way we will ever get what we want and deserve.

I knew the Army Corps of Engineers used to control the place, I didn't know that they officially turned it over to the DNR before it was closed to us.

I used to talk to the DNR officers when they would stop by. They used to ask us if there were any stuck vehicles (or abandoned ones) back there because they didn't want to go back there themselves.

Sorry I was just trying to set a few facts straight and show any Iowan's reading this that the DNR is really our biggest challenge, and to point out that we have no public place to wheel. Which is pretty pathetic really when we have abandoned quarries and strip mines that are perfect for what we do, rotting away until the State reclaims them and we can't even take piss on a tree there without getting arrested. For some reason the old administration just didn't want to do anything for us. Now with the economy in ruins I personally feel we are fucked. Our only hope will be private land owners who allow us to recreate on their property. Hopefully I am wrong.

I'll go drink bleach, gargle razor blades and stop being a pussy. Proceed to represent the states off road community in this posting without further input from me.

See you guys on the trails! Too bad it will have to be in another state.

Don't you dare drink bleach, we need all the informed wheelers out there we can get! Now go join a local club or two and maybe we'll see you on the private trails in Iowa....
