Default Motorized recreation less disruptive..

Even Enviro-propaganda shows motorized recreation less disruptive than non!

"We found that non-motorized activities had more evidence for negative effects than motorized activities. Motorized activities are often expected to be more harmful to animals because of vehicle speed and noise..."

Default Human vs Machine

The studies show what we already have known from observation: The critters do not care about snowmobiles and only when the motor is turned off and the human gets of the machine do they recognize that it is a human (prey or enemy) at all.
It is also important to keep our machines as quiet as possible, especially when land closures are most likely to cite noise as one reason. This is the one reason we have direct control of.
BTW the new Ski Doo 850 is very quiet, amazingly so.

Just wow! Let's start the petition to get our land back! This quote is so vindicating, but pisses me off at the same time when I think of the land stolen from us under the guise of animal endangerment.

"Counter to public perception, non-motorized activities had more evidence for a negative effect of recreation than motorized activities, with effects observed 1.2 times more frequently."

Here's the entire research paper: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...e-0167259-g005

It's all BS. Many oppose a pipeline but they drive their car to a pipeline protest. Many oppose mining but they want their smart phones, computers satellite TV, etc. Many oppose logging but they want their 2x4's, news and toilet paper. It's a lot of crap. No pun intended.
