    I would back off a ways and get someting ,a tree,dirt enbankment between my self and them and yell so they could hear me,telling them to leave,NO warning shot is neccesary or prudent.NOW they know you are about at night,and most likely will never return.

    Warning shots!? You guys are joking, right?
    Suppose the perceived poacher is just someone trying to feed their family? If this were the case there are numerous better ways of dealing with the situation.

    I wouldn't fire a warning shot...what if the guy/girl(s) think you are shooting at them and return fire?

    The warning shot for sure after you get the descripition and plate numbers. If possible get head count of the poachers as well since more info the better chances of prosecuting all of them not just the owner of the vehicle

    If they're on your property, you probably know where all the access points are. Find their vehicle and get it's description and plate numbers, then get out of there and make the phone call ASAP. Even if you can't prove they're poaching, you can still nail their asses to the wall for hunting on private ground without permission and trespassing.

    Maybe get a make on the truck or car they were in or a plate number, and call as soon as possible.

    Read a story in missouri about a guy who approached a tresspasser on his land during opening gun season and the guy stabbed him in the chest and ran away =\(Didnt go very deep so the guy was able to get to a hospital and get it stiched up)....gotta be careful never know what will happen. Personally, I would most likely something like what Charlie Elk earlier posted. Never yell at a poacher/tresspasser no matter how badly you may want to.

    I think a warning shot would get your point across and for the most part not disclose your location. I'm a little unconventional when it comes to people breaking laws, because law enforcement can only do so much and more than likely these people who are tresspassing probably do it often, not to mention in my area trespasing is nothing more than a slap on the wrist. By no means approach them!

    Since they are on my property I would approach them introduce myself, chat and see what exactly is going on. It would be hours or days before any law enforcement would show up here. We are on our own in this area.
    In your scenario how would you know they are poachers and not simply trespassers or moonlight lovers?

    I would probably Back out and get to a phone. No sense in trying to get yourself killed over it. Operation Game Thief in Missouri. Definately want them caught.

    This can be a very dangerous situation, the best thing to do is get to the closest phone and call the game warden. approaching them will only make them agitated and you don't know what they will do then.
