    I know the game wardens can enter private property to investigate potential hunting violations, but can any other LEO's?

    I got permission to hunt a farm from the landowner, but have been warned that his BIL, who lives next door to the entrance and apparently is a state police detective, might try to harass me. But I was thinking that since its not his land and he has no permission to be on it, there's really not much he could do, or at least not legally.

    I'd stopped by and introduce myself and let him know you have permission to hunt and what type vehicle you drive cause you'll be passing by his house off and on. See where it goes.

    My guess would be, he can only be there if he is investigating a crime. He has to have probable cause or a warrant.

    Uh, I think that's called being overzealous/abuse of powers on the state detective's end...Just one reason many people are not cop friendly!

    How did the landowner suggest you handle it? Harassed as far as "hey what are you doing here?" or walking through banging drums to prevent you from killing deer?

    I would definitely attempt to meet and exchange information but in full transparency if I saw trespassers (first assumption) on neighboring property you could accuse me of harassing because I would investigate.

    He has no right to the land why even stop? Would you do that if I lived next door and trespassed on that land? Who cares what job he has? Sounds to me like he needs to stay off the property and quit committing crimes on it by trespassing. I can see stopping and telling him you have permission to be on the land and for him to stay off and if he comes on it and starts harassing you you will not tolerate it. This for some reason struck a nerve with me. I have law enforcement heavily in my family and I wouldn’t tolerate this type of behavior from them and sure wouldn’t from a trespassing neighbor.

    You're getting defensive just going off hearsay, no facts.

    Not his land and has no permission on it. So just because he is Law Enforcement don’t mean he can abuse his job and harass people not on his land.

    Now to be honest is did not catch the BIL thing. That should not matter. But it normally does. My BIL is law enforcement. And he has tried to influence things. But he knows how I am and has saw it don’t work.

    This is sure going south......

    The State Police Detective HAS NOT done anything... The landowner has simply told the OP that he MIGHT try to harass him.... he did not specify as to why he MIGHT...

    Also the original post does not state if the Detective actually has permission or not to be on the property... If he does not have permission, he has no right to be on the property... simple.

    OP did say he has no permission. I’m not getting in a pissin match. Like I said earlier it just struck a nerve with me. If it was bad enough to warn a new hunter about his harassment there has to be a history with him. Hope it’s nothing and he has a good season.
