    There are a few companies on the list that surprised me. Sad to see any OHV getting shut down.
    Tellico in Murphy, NC fell due to trout unlimited...well not completely. It was a great place to go hit the trails and sad to say I only had a chance to go twice . The years of off-road use and lack of trail maintenance and silt fence to prevent run off in trout streams was what killed it...so I heard. These anti-OHV groups watch for our mistakes and act on them, we have to be cautious and fix any problems that we see before they can act.
    Off-road groups starting doing work to fix the problem at Tellico but it was to late.

    Sorry to ask this, but is Patagonia the company selling offroad tires? Someone just told me about those tires this week. That would seem crazy for them to be against OHV recreation.

    Because of where @skunked and I live, I believe he is talking about the clothing company Patagonia that is also in California. They are very active in this type of activism.

    Yep, the clothing company. Heavily worn by the yuppies and tree huggers.
