    How many of you have been hunting your own private property and had someone either trespass or shoot game from the road on your land? If you were to run into these people while hunting your land what would you do?

    Confrontation is always a bad thing---proper procedure would be to obtain a description of the vehicle or persons--a license plate number even a partial plate number with a visual description of the vehicle would be useful----contact your local authorities as they have the proper training and expertise to deal with this situation. Since this person has already displayed unethical practices;the situation could escalate into you being accused of threatening them or some fictional claim to defer their actions.Make the wise choice.

        If it was my land I would confront them. First I would call GFP and then ask about their license's, get a description of them and their vehicle and then kick them off.

            avoid confrontation if posible, if not explain that this is private property and that others are nearby and that it'd be best if the trespassers left and not enter the land again. Get the vehicle discription and license number and call the local sherrif and Game officer to report the violation. I've had a couple of large 140+ bucks shot on my property by road hunters that I know of who knows hom many these theifs have killed. I dispise outlaw hunters and report all I witness, I dont care if you're kin, you break a game law or trespass, I will report YOU!!

              A note to be made I'm not familiar with your laws where you are, but where I'm from you have to have the property clearly marked as private all around it, so definitely make sure that it is clear that it is your property. But I also know that in some places it's perfectly legal to shoot game on one side of the road that may not be posted and if it crosses over to your side and dies the hunter is allowed to retrieve it. Personally I am not an advocate of restricting access, but I would put up an access by permission only rule on my property. I wouldn't buy a parcel of land that was formerly the only public boat launch on a lake and close it, I'd let people use it to get on the water (people aren't bitter about that one around here). No access is becoming to much of a problem for people in my area and it really limits where you can go. Unfortunately I do see that people abuse the privilege of access to private property and it is one reason why we are losing access to former hunting grounds.

                Take picture with the cell phone, get license plate and let Johny Law handle it! Don't be a hero and try to handle it yourself, it's hazardous to your health!!!
