    You need to tune your sarcasm detection meter a little Jiw275.

    Some landowners are funny. Funny in like a bad relative sort of way. What's mine is mine what's yours is mine. The farm I hunt has a neighbor like this. I swear he thinks there should be a 100 yard neutral zone between each line and nobody may enter the neutral zone except for him, once he's received his own permission.

    For the op build some blinds where the runs cross. Put them up just before season. Deer don't like new things. Can't hunt close to the property line, you can pay that portion of my property taxes.
     
  4. One thing that might deter them is putting up lots of stands on the state land around your property. That might deter some thinking the area is getting lots of pressure.

    I appreciate your input on the pending legislation. Based on your feedback, we’re reserving the castration penalty for 2nd time offenders

    Don't think you are following luv2huntup's logic. He is assuming the property owner isnt a line sitter so you put a dwelling on the line and the line sitter cannot sit or shoot at anything within 150yds of that dwelling. The land owner sits 150 yds on the opposite side of line on his own land. That is a 300yd buffer zone.

    I'm not sure. Look at page 23 in the Digest.

    Maybe I missed the OPs position, is the land he is describing vacant land or does he live on the property that is surrounded by state land? I ask because it was 2 years ago I came on here and asked the same questions but I also had an unruly neighbor that was purposely trying to fight and ruin my hunts. Many members told me to sell and it wasn't worth the headache and stress. At first I couldn't fathom selling my land 8 minutes away from home that produced deer every single sit, well, I sold it and it was honestly the best thing I ever did. Purchased a new farm and dont worry about this garbage any longer. Just my 2 cents, its just not worth the worry every season and if happened again, I would sell again and buy more.

    I just talked with my state rep. and he is on board with the no hunting within 450 ft of a property line. What we will be changing is the no peek rule. You are allowed to peek at any game animal as long as it is 450 ft. or further from a property line. Anything wthin 450 ft. you must keep your eyes staring down. No exceptions!!

  15. What’s the third time offender punishment? With no nuts I’m thinking he ain’t gonna care what the punishment is at that point....
