I have 110 hilly acres and I have called the game warden three times regarding two tree stands and a poacher in the last two days. According to the law, they are suppose to "ask" before getting on your property. But they don't. I have lived here all my life and no one has ever, to my knowledge asked anyone if it was okay to hunt on their land, they just do it.

95% of Kentucky is privately owned. Hunters need to form a club, buy some land, or take up knitting. But stay off my property.

anyone else feel this way?

Take the tree stands down, put up some keep out, no hunting, private property signs. Tell the sheriff what's going on and that you put these signs out. If things don't stop in 3 days, post on here again and I'll have a couple of my local friends come over and take care of business the old fashion way! Hell, I may even come down join in. It's been awhile since I sent a trespasser packing, at gun point, in their underwear. Don't worry, it will all be legal.

I own property too that can be used for hunting. I have had some people call up to ask if they can hunt. Of course, I say no since I reserve my property only for family.

Call Franfort and tell them you can not get the game warden to act in accordance to the law on your behalf!When you think about it, it is rather odd how things work. I mean the deer belong to the state and yet because of there deer on your property,people are trespassing to harvest the deers.And yet you can not get a state official to do his job!But i bet you one thing,if you were to poach a deer he would be there. Now what does that tell you?

If you can't get help from Fish & Wildlife remind them of the law and ask why they won't enforce it.

Here's the KRS
150.092 Consent requirement for entry upon lands of another person -- Private lands incentive programs -- Arrest and citation authority.
(1) Persons shall not enter upon the lands of another to shoot, hunt, trap, or fish, or for other wildlife-related recreational purposes, without the oral or written permission of the landowner, tenant, or person who has authority to grant permission.
(2) The department may promulgate administrative regulations pursuant to KRS Chapter 13A to establish private lands incentive programs encouraging voluntary access to private lands for hunting, fishing, or other wildlife-related recreation, while at the same time protecting the rights of private property owners. Participation in these programs shall not waive any protection granted to the landowner by KRS 150.645 or 411.190.
(3) A fish and wildlife law enforcement officer may arrest or issue a citation to any person who is in violation of this section or the administrative regulations adopted thereunder.
(4) Persons who enter upon the lands of another to shoot, hunt, trap, or fish, or for other wildlife-related recreational purposes, shall not, through their actions, cause damage to any buildings, fences, crops, livestock or domestic animals, machinery, or other property while upon these lands.
(5) Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit the existing powers of peace officers.
Effective: July 15, 1996
History: Amended 1996 Ky. Acts ch. 250, sec. 1, effective July 15, 1996.-- Amended 1990 Ky. Acts ch. 474, sec. 2, effective July 13, 1990.-- Amended 1988 Ky.

I do live just down the road from Ron. But I just can't see him going onto anyone's property without permission. He has known me for years and I find it hard to believe that he won't ask first.

I too would like to keep my land for my family's use.

Oh, I reported the game warden to Frankfort. Then I am having some of those hide-in-the-woods, wireless camera's installed. Next time someone comes over to make a poaching visit, I'll have film for the police to use for identification purposes if they turn their head just right.

God, the amount of money you have to spend to protect your property.

Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving!

There is lots of squatting since the housing crunch. I have heard Lemmie Dean Price goes from house to house. One owner had to take him to court because he refused to leave his house. Lemmie just moved in and too over.

people don't respect your right to own land, they are used to doing what they want,when i catch them on my property they never let me catch them again,hunting accident's happen all the time,mostly during turkey season,everything green and all it's hard to tell sometime's what you are shooting at,just a reminder watch your step

daisy duke, you sound like a dumba$$ what trouble is it causing you?, if there not shooting at your house or making a ton of noise whats it matter, 110 acres? on that much land you would never know that they were there if you wasnt walking around looking for it, PPL Like you just LIVE to Bitc* about somethin,

(by the way there is NO assigned game warden as of right now in johnson county, marshall was relocated...and the police arent gonna do ANYthing about that, they will laugh at a call like that...

I’ll tell you what my best friend’s grandfather did. He protects the wildlife on his land and doesn’t allow anyone to hurt anything on it. But every hunting season he has to go up on the mountain and run hunters off. He figured out a solution. He got a permit from fish and wildlife to run trap lines and he posted the property as having animal traps. That at least keeps the hunters with hunting dogs off their property. You don't have to actually set them or even put traps on your land.

People are so concerned over the deer population but between the cost to hunt and property owners stopping hunting, I could care less if they get thick as thieves in Boyd Branch. The same people who don't want hunting are usually the ones griping about how the deer eat their gardens and destroy their property. I hope they get so plentiful, we cant walk out the door without tripping over one. I haven't hunted in 15 years because of the hassle. I quit and I urge all you other hunters to take a break and lets let them come begging people to hunt them.

I worked for it. I paid for it. I pay taxes every year on it. It belongs to me while I live on this good earth. When I die, I pass it to my son.

Let me get your thinking straight, Jeffie. I am making trouble by walking around on my property, but poachers and trespassers are just good ole boys out for a good time when they come onto my posted private property carrying weapons. And you call me a dumba$$. Think you'd better look in the mirror on that one bud. You would find the head of all dumba$$'s looking back at you.

But it doesn't matter. My property is posted as no trespassing, no hunting because I am into conservation. That means, the animals are suppose to have a safe haven and it is on the National Wildlife registry. Family has permission to hunt. But that's it.

Some of the answers that have been posted have been great and very helpful and I thank you for them.

Hey Smifland Jeffie, why don't you tell us where you live so we can come down and just take what we want since you are such a generous guy who thanks that no one is suppose to own anything. I just bet you'd be the first person on the phone to the police crying and slobbering on their shoulder that people came in and just took all your stuff. That's if you own a pot to pee in.
