I have a question about using an easement to possibly access landlocked public property. My wife and I are in the process of buying a small property to build a cabin on that is accessed by an easement on a ranch road that takes you several miles through the ranch before it reaches the cabin subdivision. At one point, the access road going to the subdivision touches a BLM section that is otherwise landlocked in the ranch. I would like to think that a guy could hunt that public since it touches a road you are allowed to use, but can you be denied access to that public since that easement you have to drive on the road exists with the purpose of allowing you access the property you own further along the way. I guess what I'm asking is, are easements that cross private property to access property you own to be used exclusively for the access of your property and even though it goes through BLM you can't use the road to access it? I met the rancher recently and he seems to be a very nice guy and I feel like I should probably just approach him directly about the subject. That being said, I'm a little nervous about it because his family runs an outfitting operation on the ranch and he probably doesn't really want to have too many people hunting the BLM within his ranch just because it touches the road easement. I plan to ask the local warden or regional access coordinator about it before I talk to the rancher (if and when the sale gets finalized) but I thought I would see if anyone else has had this experience and what was decided and how it was worked out?
