The way I understand he could cross the HOA on foot until he’s told not to unless posted. After he is told that’s trespassing. Four wheeler there is no warning.After reviewing the regs, were you crossing the HOA property to access your trapping area? Without permission from the landowner that would be trespassing. Just saying. What is the status of the waterway? Is it navigable or does it come under the "property line is the centerline of the waterway" rule? Seems to be a few questions you may not have found the answer to prior to setting. Hope you can get it worked out without it costing you too awfully much.
