I have lived in 4 different States. I have never seen the "its mine, you can't use it" mentality anywhere else as bad as it is here. Typical Tenn mentality. Even when I lived in NJ people were much more apt to let people cut through their property to gain stream access. Its even worse here in east Tenn if you're a hunter! You're better off asking for a landowners first born daughter than permission to hunt on their land!!!
