Trespassing Hunter

Ok so I was taking my dog for his romp with his friends at the dog park today. As I drove out my drive way I see a truck parked at the service road that is about 50 yards off my land. When I get home I see it is still there. So curiosity got the better of me and I took a walk. Part of my land is woods and part of it is farmed. The wooded area is surrounded by plowed land so it jets out like a peninsula. As I get to the far side I see the ladder on my tree and 2 stands. It's less than 30 mins before dark and I can see the truck pulling out. So what do I do? Do I try to be nice and hope he is not an a $$ about it or do I go right to the game warden and have them take care of it? I do not want to be a dick about it he may assume it's the farmers land who farms about 2 acres of my land. On the other hand he may know he is trespassing and it could get ugly fast.

I just finished deer season. (Got one, by the way, eating it now.). The whole two days before was spent going around to various property owners.

"Is it ok if we hunt on your land?" "Where is the boundary of your land?" "Is there any part of the deer you really like, that we could bring you, if we get one?"

Whether through willful ignorance, or total disregard, guys like these are the reason some people said "No, I'd love to have you hunting on my land, 'cause the deer eat my crops, but I've dealt with too many dirtbags..."

F this guy. He's lucky he didn't get shot. Call game warden, call sheriff, and if you can catch him again... Use whatever force necessary to safely effect a citizen's arrest.

You can't go wrong notifying the game warden to avoid an unfavorable interaction with armed individuals knowingly trespassing.

You could also, take down the stands and leave them where they can be found and collected as well as no trespassing and no hunting signs. They should get the point and any perceived hostility would be in their minds. That would be my version of being nice. If it continues after that, being a dick is called for.

Talk to the farmer first, see if he knows the truck and if they are supposed to be on his land. If he says they are ok and just don't know the property line, have him show them. If he doesn't know them, call the cops/game warden.


edit

A no hunting/no trespassing sign where they can't miss it going from where they parked to where they were hunting will either stop them, or let you know that law enforcement is definitely the way to go.

Sounds like you got a new ladder and a couple stands. Oh yeah and a game warden to call.

Absolutely no theft involved when property is abandoned on MY property by someone who did not have my permission to be there in the first place.

It is absolutely theft. That property was not abandoned if people come back for it. It doesn't matter if they don't have permission that is why you call the game warden /dnr

If the items were not allowed to be there in the first place and they left it unattended it most certainly is abandoned. Can I park my car in your yard and come and go as I please?

Who owns this land in question? If no one knows the farmer, you have an issue. Farmers pay to rent farmland. This unknown farmer should be paying someone to farm that ground. If you dont care about an unknown somebody farming your land whats the big deal about a bowhunter?

The land is mine passed on to me by my grandfather. The farmer had a verbal agreement to farm the land for free. My grandfather saw it as a free way to keep it from becoming overgrown. No hunting rights where given.
