Sounds right; no need to tag motor_vehicle separately, since 'access'
covers all transportation modes that aren't called out separately.

If permission is readily obtainable, then 'permit'. If permission
happens on a case-by-case basis, 'private' is probably closer.

Once again, if it's "access granted if you comply with the
formalities", then 'permit', otherwise 'private'.  The Hunting
Association one sounds as if it restricts access to its own members?
In that case, it's definitely "private."
