HUNTING / TRAPPING
Accessing the public BLM Vulcan Allotment through Nutrient Farm is PERMITTED under the following conditions:
* PRIVATE PROPERTY (Nutrient Farm)
Hunting and Trapping (collectively "Hunting") is NOT PERMITTED on the private property.
** PUBLIC PROPERTY (Vulcan BLM Allotment)
Vehicular use is NOT PERMITTED by the BLM.
May - Hunting access is NOT PERMITTED
Every May, Nutrient Farm has a large cattle grazing operation in the Vulcan BLM Allotment. For the safety of our employees and livestock, Hunting access is not permitted during the month of May. This is a very serious program that cannot be interrupted by Hunting activities. Violators of this critical safety policy will vigilantly be considered trespassers and the Sheriff will be contacted. The farm is under 24 hour video surveillance.
June through April - Hunting access is PERMITTED
Nutrient Farm is happy to facilitate access for Hunters from June through April (11 months) each year (carrying a current "Nutrient Farm Recreational Trails Permit") and their equipment (guns/traps) to cross the South end of Nutrient Farm’s PRIVATE East Pasture on the gravel road known as “Nutrient BLM Trail” (see on Recreational Trails page linked above) to reach the entrance (yellow gate) of the Vulcan BLM Allotment.
Nutrient Farm is the registered caretaker of and holds the exclusive grazing lease on the Vulcan BLM Allotment. Please help us create a safe environment for everyone. Thank you.
** Excerpt from BLM website:
Unless specifically prohibited, public lands managed by the BLM are open to hunting. Always check with your local BLM office in the region you plan to visit to inquire about closures, restrictions and safety tips before you plan your trip.
It is extremely important to hunt only on lands where it is legally allowed. Private land is open to hunting only if you have the permission of the land owner. If you do not have permission to hunt, you are trespassing and can be prosecuted. Crossing private lands to access public lands is not permitted, unless you first obtain permission from the private landowner. The BLM provides public information, such as brochures and maps, through online and physical public rooms. Find a public room in your state here.
All hunters on public lands must have the required state license(s). States are responsible for managing wildlife within their borders for the trust and benefit of their residents, even if the hunting occurs on federal lands.
