This seems to be a common theme on here. Most of the time its posted that they should be shot, beat up, etc..etc..etc.

I and many others feel your pain, but approaching the situation with alittle more sense is in order. Im not saying their not wrong when sometimes it is obvious they are.

There are just as many landowners that arent clear what they own as there are hunters that get vague directions as to what they can hunt.

Its a fact of life your gonna have to deal with them as long as your not the only person on the planet. Keep in the back of your mind theres not much permanent damage they can do that cant be fixed or undone.

I invest more time outdoors and 95% of outdoorsman and I know it sucks that someone could come along and mess it up for you.

Keep in mind its just a deer, another one just like him will be there next year and there after. Even if its a booner, theres more than just that one running around.

Ok, rant off.

P.S you would be surprised at the beloved individuals on this site that fall into such a catagory.

For the 4th year in a row, neighbor's turned their horses into my property after gun season and they knew i was gone. State police were out last year, will file a report this weekend again and I've already talked to the trooper. Next time they are on my place, he said not to notify the owner, they will take care of them and then they will notify the owner. Now I have no wheat or clover available for the wildlife and best we can tell the horses were on our place for about 2 weeks. When I called the landowner, they didn't have a clue the horses were missing. Last year the fence was cut an pulled back. I haven't had time to walk it this year. I sure hope some horses don't decide to attack me tomorrow.

Yes, but for cookin them whole on a spit, shetlands are choice #1 as their short legs don't require you to hoist the spit as high....the core of the hooves is also pretty tasty. Shetland has a taste similar to Bald Eagle

So was it really pony? If so, I think I might start ponyjerkying- the price of horses is lowwww and I just got me a new dehydrator and have already run through all of my deer!

Tried duck jerky in the duck blind and that was pretty good...

[rquote=1514639&tid=105613&author=20 feet high]it's not about a deer, it is however about a blatant lack of disrespect that trespassers and poachers have for laws and property lines[/rquote]

[/rquote]One of the best posts I've seen in a long time. Some times mistakes are just exactly that. Had a kid bury his 4-wheeler in my creek a couple years ago, when I asked him whose ground he thought he was on, he replied "my Grandmothers". Grandma was my neighbor and the kid was just mistaken. Stuff like that happens, it ain't worth getting the blood pressure up over. :02:

So is it ok to walk into your house and use the facilities, make coffee, use your kitchen to whip up a meal?

To me, when a trespassing has occurred, I feel violated.

I work hard for my property and want it to be mine...not every swinging willie's to use.

I have been robbed when I was at home, asleep. Woke up to find a few things missing, nothing real important...but he got 15 years for it none the less...guess he shouldn't have robbed an officers house besides my lonely chateau, too.

Does the punishment fit the crime...yep. He robbed over 20 homes that night and didn't bother the residents in their slumber. What if this guy never got caught and felt he could do more devious things to unsuspecting home owners. Now, before you say lock the doors or how did he get in...he had some sort of a tool to jimmy open sliding doors. There are sticks and extra locks on my house now.

Soooo, what I am saying...you need to get ahold of these wrongdoers and set them straight before they feel that all people are victims. Could take a few convenient words...might take a boot in the derriere! Do you let them go without warning or concern? Your choice.

If it happens on my place...it will be decided by the situation.:wave:

Believe it or not Jeff, but your way of thinking doesn't go over very well up here in the sticks, even with law abiding locals. We're still friendly & know & respect our neighbors.

BTW, it's not that uncommon around here to open the door & holler as you're entering someones home. :whistle:

Both the original comment by Thayer and the reply here by Randy are kinda off topic if ya ask me. First on Thayers comments.....walking into someone's home and robbing them is COMPLETELY different in my opinion than tresspassing out in the brush to hunt....even if a deer is shot. In the tresspassing instance there is nothing stolen...the deer doesn't belong to you unless you bought it and it is captive...so those are different offenses that have different penalties..as welll they should. Pinwheels comment about walking into neighbors' homes who you are obviously friendly with is completely different than tresspassing. Pinwheel, how would you feel about the same neighbors showing up uninvited, rifles in hand, to hunt deer??

I'm all for enforcement against tresspassers, but the spirit of this thread was to do so civilly and within the law, not shooting, slashing tires, or otherwise threatening the tresspasser.
