    I was thinking the same. Screw the hunters, it's about your farm and your animals. If your hauling water when you have a perfectly good pond, your messed up in the head.

    Have you ever ran a string through the bottom of a five gallon bucket? It makes a sound that will raise the hair on your neck! Of course you may accidentally call in one of those uncaught monsters from the Mountain Monster series.

    This has made for a good read. I wish I lived nearby I’d go to your neighbor and try to lease that farm. You and I would never have issues over hunting fence lines. I was raised to respect the property you hunt and the property adjoining it. I have in laws in Shelby Co., there’s some good deer on their farms, but they hunt and I’m too far away.
    I’ve had stands stolen, had people accuse me of stealing stands, and had to escort people off of property I was hunting. It’s crazy how people act when it comes to deer hunting. I’ve almost quit just because of the headaches and people leasing land for crazy prices. I guess I’ll be hunting public land this year which I find worse than dealing with leases and trespassers. I applaud your handling of this situation and will be back to see the updates.

    Who is your in laws??? I might know some of them. I was taught respect the fellow neighbor hunters. Stay off the fences. I got 44 acs here. I hunt the back 20. I got 5 ladder stands 2 shooting houses. None of them closer to a fence than 30 yards on border fences. The guys that lease has some 5 foot from the fences. But when one crossed the line and nailed to a tree on my side. THEN IT WAS A DIFFERENT STORY.

    Totally different situation but gotta toss this one in here... When we bought our farm (50'ish acres), it already had several blinds on it. The biggest (and best location) was maybe 15' from their property line with windows looking out both sides. (The property line runs down a small draw thru the middle of a large field.) First thing we did was block the window looking out onto our neighbors so the only way you can shoot is onto our own property. We'd have liked to move it but any place in the field we could have moved it to would have raised the risk of shooting TOWARDS the neighbors & we sure didn't want to do that. So we figured blocking their side would have to suffice. Guess they didn't agree... Over the years, we've had trees cut down from their side barely missing it, the ladder has been stolen off of it, and it's been shot to dishrags. Along with a solid wall of orange "no trespassing" signs plastering every tree, fence post & anything else they can stick one to around it. Not to mention that they built a HUGE two story blind that would easily hold 10 people facing directly across their field so that any shots would be straight at our blind... (I'm betting that's where a lot of the bullet holes have come from.) Both sides have technically followed the rules but we're afraid to use that blind now....

    Well you had a very valid point but you took it too way to far. Should of just took the stand down yourself and put up a sign and left it at that. Although you let the guys here on this site are just egg you on. I hope you understand that you are now just as guilty of a crime which makes you no better than the guy who put up the stand. The crime you have committed comes with jail time. Unfortunately for you, you have documented your crime here on this forum in your own words. Also unfortunately for you, other than your word, we really don't have any proof there was actually a stand on your property. I'm not saying your lying, I'm just telling you the law will not rely on your word. Welcome to the LAW in America. You keep up what your doing YOUR going to get screwed!

    The stand is down and you have reclaimed your 2 feet of land. You had better stop while your ahead.

    I'd say nail holes in his tree would be all the evidence necessary to show the stand was on his land.
