I wouldn’t go on whether or not they prosecute, but rather whether or not you will get ticketed. A ticket can be costly to clear up, especially if you don’t live near the courthouse and and don’t have a free attorney.
I agree 100% I'm not looking to create hassles or arguments with landowners or LEOs. All in all, I'll probably stay out of the checkerboard for that reason. But there is a hell of a lot of acres out there.
