You cant really "wheel" on state land, if that is what you are reffering to, unless you are at St. Helen motosport area or the dunes. So to answer your question, no. And if it is private you can do whatever the land owner says you can do. Hope this helps!

You can however, travel forest roads as long as a two wheel drive passenger vehicle can traverse it and your not acting in an erosive manner, but not if it is posted closed. On the other hand the Lower Peninsula is closed unless posted open to ORV's. Of which your SOS licensed vehicle is not considered.

Your question left me wondering what type of vehicle you thought about using so I kinda tried to put it all out there. Confused yet? So are we!

the trails are only closed during the two weeks of fire arm deer season. the rest of the year is open, but your taking your life in your own hands disturbing hunters in their stands.

Section 324.81133SectionOperation of ORV; prohibited acts.

(j) In an area on which public hunting is permitted during the regular November firearm deer season from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., except during an emergency or for law enforcement purposes, to go to and from a permanent residence or a hunting camp otherwise inaccessible by a conventional wheeled vehicle, to remove from public land a deer, elk, or bear that has been taken under a valid license; except for the conduct of necessary work functions involving land and timber survey, communication and transmission line patrol, and timber harvest operations; or except on property owned or under control of the operator or on which the operator is an invited guest. A hunter removing game pursuant to this subdivision may leave the designated trail or forest road only to retrieve the game and shall not exceed 5 miles per hour. A vehicle registered under the code is exempt from this subdivision while operating on a public highway or public or private road capable of sustaining automobile traffic. A person holding a valid permit to hunt from a standing vehicle issued pursuant to part 401, or a person with disabilities using an ORV to access public lands for purposes of hunting or fishing through use of a designated trail or forest road, is exempt from this subdivision.

This is for ORV use, ie a quad, it has nothing to do with fullsize SOS licensed use of two tracks and forest roads. That is why I asked the question about what type of machine he would be using. I never did find that out
