I will chime in. I would say this would not be the case, for a simple reason: they see all the abuses, but few of the responsible recreationists doing things the right way. That's what they get called out to correct.
About the 18th time I saw someone tear across virgin crypto on their ATV past signs clearly marking the trail, I might adopt the same mindset.
Keep in mind that the LEO encounters at the top of this thread were guys who went after OHVers who were doing nothing wrong at all - sitting in camp for pitie's sake. That is the line they shouldn't cross.
This thread is by no means opposing BLM enforcement actions and LEOs in general. Without them we would lose it all. But forewarned is prepared.
