Well deer season is here, you can tell by the SLOB hunters that are dumping deer guts along the road and in our creeks.

You can also tell by the gates left open, fields and pastures cut up by 4X4s and ATVs.

For the first time I have posted my property. Even though it is fenced and no trespassing signs are posted I have had trespassers. At one gate it looks like someone cleaned out their truck, McDonalds food wrappers, chewing tobacco pouches and soda bottles and drink cups just dumped.

Hunters often complain that there are fewer and fewer places to hunt. Blame it on the SLOB hunter.

Even though my property is posted I will allow hunting by friends and neighbors and anyone that ask.

All trespassers will be reported. If you park your truck on my property it will be towed.

Be a good hunter and a good neighbor and you will enjoy the season.

Well said i totally agree with you. Mine is posted as well because of that reason right there. They don't respect ppl's property then wonder why they can't hunt.

Im with ya on this, I had a guy come on to my property one time to hunt with out asking, He parked his truck at the end of my Driveway on my grass. So I took my tractor and Box blade and put rite in front of his truck and parked my Old farm truck rite behind it so he couldnt get out, then went to the lake for the weekend. Man was he pissed when he showed back up monday afternoon after being with out his truck for the weekend, I told him next time I would take my Backhoe and bury his damn truck.

Everything you said has a lot of validity, except it is my understanding that if your property is posted, nobody can hunt on it, not even you.
That's the way it used to be. Does it say "No Hunting"?

I've had the same problem with fishing in my farm ponds. Posted "Private Property - No Trespassing" signs everywhere, and the a--holes still climb the fences an fish anyway, leave their empty soda bottles and food wrappers on the ground or throw them in the pond. I have one rather large pond that "WAS" literally a bass fisherman's wet dream until trespassers caught and "kept" most of them. I installed a wildlife camera nearby and got photos of them, then turned it into the Sheriff's office. But the "Law" did absolutely nothing to those people. So much for private property rights.

Stuff like this gives hunters a bad name.

I always ask permission, pick up OTHER peoples trash, and try to leave the place in better shape than it was when I got there.

I've been able to hunt the same places all of my life just for doing this.

I would have sliced your tires, raped your wife, and kill your dog for that.

I do the same. I do apologize for those idiots who do not respect the property of others. I truly appreciate it when someone allows me to hunt on their property and I make an effort to leave it the same or even better than when I got there. "Most" hunters do appreciate the opportunity to hunt so don't let the few harm the many. Again Thanks to all of you who do allow hunters on your land.

When the last hunter cut my barbed wire fence AFTER i locked all my gates and ran their 4 wheeler thru the cut opening I CAME UNGLUED.

You might rape my wife and slash my tires, but dont let me catch you near my dog.

I know you can't control where your dogs go to tree a coon, but if you enter fenced or posted property without permission you are trespassing.

Last year I had one hunter with the decency to come to my door to ask permission to get his dogs and I told him he could also get the coon.

I have had others that when I heard them or seen their light they immediately sneak off into the night like the thieves they are.

You can't just roam freely across others property like you could years ago. That is part of the reason I no longer hunt.

I posted my property for the 1st time this year, also. I had a guy tell me which one of my stands he was going to hunt off of once. Needless to say, I was waiting on him the next morning and told him he could take his a$$ on down the road. It would've have different had he asked and not told me.

Some hunters are just rude people. I now hunt on a private farm, with family due to ignorant hunters doing the things described.

I have the same problem, never see any one until just before hunting season, but then I have more so called friends, that show up and expect me to let them hunt, I pay the tax on what i have, i have no use for free loaders, I have one brother in law that expects me to let him hunt, never hear from him during any other time of the year, just a fair weather friend , that will not give you the time of day, until he wants something !!!

Would any of you that own land and have had problems with trespassers be willing to lease? I would be willing to lease to hunt, and I would not hesitate to call the local Warden if I caught anyone trespassing. If I have to pay to hunt, damn if I let trespassers walk all over me while hunting. I have lived around the Lafe area most of my life, and I would like to find some land to lease for hunting.

My daddy owned a dairy farm up here in Connecticut. He got fed up with the freeloaders and fair weather friends. He announced one day late winter that if you wanted to hunt his land in the fall he expected to see you in the summer when the haylots need baling. You'd be amazed at how many people stopped coming by. But the ones that did some work got the run of the land.

May I ask this:

Without hunters to cull the herds, what kind of damage would the deer do to your farms, wooded or planted acres?

I really think you should try to reach a happy medium here.

Sure, you would like your acres to be left as pristine as the hunter found them, but don't judge all hunters by a few.

Work with local and state agencies to develop fish and hunter education to always take out what you took in.

And, hunters, ask for permission to hunt. All they can tell you is no.

Yes many take advantage of other peoples property and thats just not right. My husband is a coon hunter and deer hunter well he will hunt about anything he can. We love deer hunting as it provides alot of meat for our family so thanks to all you with the land that let us hunt there. Its Good for our boys to get into that type of activity keeps them busy and out of trouble. WE also teach them to respect others property. Never do we go without written premission from the land owner. It is getting harder to find those willing to let you hunt for the very reasons listed above. We all have to pay sometimes for their ignorance. So sorry for all your trouble with that but don't punish us all just weed out the bad seeds and make them pay the price.
