Hatton rd is a private rd for the landowners if you can read the sign it says end of country road. If you still want to try you will be stop for tresspassing which has a fine up to 5000 $ or more the landowners have posted signs there are game camera to get your vehicle and plates.

So which private land do you hunt or own?

I've thought about burning max bull points for a branch antler rifle tag there. This is depressing!

This is simply an outright lie.  Criminal trespass in the 2nd degree is a misdemeanor violation, which is punishable by a maximum fine of $1000.  If the road is private fine, but you certainly don't need to make stuff up in order to bolster your cause.

Don't be discouraged. There are plenty of other areas up their that hold bulls.

Interesting thread. Last year I tried to access Hatton Rd but saw the gate when I drove up and turned around. No one came out. It was late archery season. The waving the gun story is just ridiculous. That fool committed a felony. The fellas in the truck could have shot him and they would never see a prison cell, and for good reason. And the old guys "patrolling" for trespassers paints a comical picture in the mind---toy soldiers wearing diapers comes to mind!! Either way, its unfortunate that access is being limited.

      When I got my $149.00 trespassing ticket (not $5000.00) on Cowichee Mill Rd the charges were quickly dismissed. My lawyer had an old DNR map that clearly showed the road to be a green dot system road going right threw the private section. My question is why has DNR allowed these people to gate what appears to be a public easement. I also heard a rumor that someone on an ATV died when they ran into one of these gates. The family members of the victim should have received millions of dollars in settlement. Maybe they did, I don't know. We all know the guy who put up the gate (probably to hide something) most likely doesn't have millions, therefore the lawyers should have gone after the DNR. Their bank account is bigger.
       With timber company leases, wild olympics campaign, and discover pass fees we the sportsmen and women are paying too much for way to little. I don't even hunt near the area this thread is about, but I'm willing to help the cause. Wouldn't it be great to get 100 guys to chip in $100.00 dollars each and sick a couple of hungry lawyers onto the Yakima county commissioners or DNR and hold their feet to the fire on the subject. I think it would be better than bickering with individual land owners. Just an idea!

I believe person on atv was one of the people who helped put up gate actually kind of ironic , there's a lot that has gone on in the unit that's hard to understand why they these people do it

Anybody heard anything new on the Cowiche Mill Rd access to Reynolds Creek?  Is the landowner(s) going to allow entry thru their property or not.  Drove up there over the weekend. Went all the way to the end. Just wondering. Been hunting up there for 15 years, would sure like to get back up there.
