It pays to keep it civil.

If it becomes a big deal or someone's feelings get hurt the real problems start.
Gates get left open, fences get cut, livestock get shot.

It isn't worth the problems.

I don't know what State you are in but I would contact the local game warden and let them handle it.

Coon hunters at night crossing fences and pushing them down is more of a problem than deer stands. the fences require fixing.

Last thing I am going to do with a known armed person who does not respect the law or property rights is invite him over to my house, complete with directions and hours when he would catch me by surprise.

But perhaps you have an alterior motive...

If you own land you already know that you can't watch or protect your property 24/7 and that anyone wishing to do you harm can find multiple ways to get back at you with minimal risk to themselves. Get the game warden/sheriff involved but go out of your way to appear reasonable and to avoid motivating retaliation. Most trespassers will respond the right way. For those that don't- go all out LEGALLY to catch and punish them.

And all unclaimed, unmarked stands are going to find a new home in my garage

What is the punishment in your State? In VA, hunting on unposted private property without permission will result in a $500 fine. Posted property raises the fine to $2,500 and adds up to 12 months in jail.

If the punishment is comparable in your area, hopefully Sheriff Daddy will take it seriously and be sure his boy understands the gift you're giving by coming directly to him instead of filing an official report and pressing charges. (I'm assuming that's what you're doing). The cost of a couple tree stands with no criminal record should be a very agreeable price to pay for the lesson. Also, I'd definitely throw him under the bus for his facebook rant.

Who owns the land adjacent to yours? What I'm asking is it possible that this kid has permission on a piece of land and just didn't realize the exact location/property line?


He's still in the wrong, but this scenario should probably be solved with a little more politeness. JMHO.

Delivered the camera I pulled to his dad, and had a very pleasant conversation regarding trespassing, and lack of respect for property owners. I asked him to return the camera to his son with instructions to contact me to set up a time to retrieve any other items that he may have out there.

Contact has been made, issue is resolved and the point was delivered in a tactful manner.

No tresspassing signs have been posted and obviously ignored.

Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated

Were the posted signs put up before or after the stands and cameras were placed? If before, I'd remove all of it from my property. My state allows me to do so. If the signs were put up after the stands and cameras were placed, I'd do as the previous poster suggested and take them down but leave them in the same place and leave a note. If they're not gone within a week, contact your local LEOs and ask for advice on what to do. It may be considered "abandoned property."

If it is your property and not one of the rightful people's stands, gear etc I would take it down. As long as it is not someone just taking pictures of animals I would think their actions are improper and unlawful. I would place the stands and gear at a central point where they can get it and don't destroy their property.

My first step would have been to compare the GPS location of the equipment to the county tax assessor's maps. Here, those maps are available online, with a free mobile app. I'd want to be ferdamsher I was standing where I thought I was standing before taking any action.

I hope things stay resolved, that there's no further damage or trespassing, and God bless you and yours. I've personally dealt with trespassers, surprised them face-to-face while I was armed and ready, and no one died. It was a potentially terrible situation that all were lucky to get out of unharmed. Later, I informed the game warden when I found the gut shot deer they were looking for on my land. The trespassers sold their neighboring land and skeedadled. Good.

I've been familiar with the property lines and markers for 30 years. When you find multiple items well inside the lines, it's rarely a case of "oops, my bad, I didn't realize I was tresspassing."

The issue has been resolved, atleast with this individual. Others will politely be invited to vacate the premises. It also helps having the sheriffs and local game wardens cell numbers.
