(a) Off-road vehicles are a legitimate method of transporting hunters and game in the state, subject to requirements of federal, state, and local landowners. If the Board of Game, through its public process, finds that off-road vehicle use attributed to hunting activities in a specific area has resulted or is likely to result in one or more of the following conditions, it will, in its discretion, take action to avoid or minimize the conditions:
(1) soil erosion or compaction, or vegetative changes, significantly affecting important wildlife habitat, including wildlife food sources such as fish and fish streams, or wildlife distribution or abundance;
(2) harvest of a population, sex, or age class significantly affecting condition, abundance, or trophy size relative to area management goals;
(3) wildlife disturbance significantly affecting reproductive success, abundance, or condition; movement patterns, distribution, or behavior; or avoidance of important habitats such as mineral licks, birthing sites, wintering habitat, or fish spawning, incubation, and rearing sites, and other wildlife feeding sites and food sources;
(4) chronic conflicts with other user groups leading to a decline in the quality of the outdoor experience.
(b) The provisions of (a) of this section do not prevent the board from taking other action that it considers necessary or advisable to adopt or modify off-road vehicle regulations that might affect hunting or the transportation of hunters, hunting gear, or game.
(c) In this section, "off-road vehicle" includes four-wheel drive trucks and automobiles, motorcycles, three- to eight-wheeled all-terrain recreation and utility vehicles, vehicles with two tracks, air-cushioned vehicles, and airboats operated outside of a navigable waterway.
