If you don,t catch him with the co, have the police trespass him from your property. All this does is give him a formal warning from the police that if he is proven to be on your property again, he can be arrested. I would then set up an infared trail cam over one of your traps. I know this can be pricey, but worth it because he'll get a stiff penalty, plus you'll still have a nice trail cam!

I agree with 100% with Johnnybravo. If you involve the law, then get pics of the guy, he is screwed. I would just make sure that you do a good job concealing your camera so as he can’t vandalize, or steal it.

Seriously you have to involve the police/wardens. Even put up one of those game cams(fairly cheap).IS it your land or just your hunting spot??

Well, secrets of a "ground bouncer"...that's what my family has titled me during season, same thing, we own 3200 acres and it's tough to keep people off of them. So, in the spring I take old fashioned harrows and flip them upside down in the driveways I don't use...during the summer grass grows up and over these and when those guys drive over them it doesn't put a hole inthe tire, it rips it apart. I also use my terracing builder and create a 2 or 3 ft deep "mote" around fileds that the ditch just runs flush with the they can drive right in anywhere without a drive way....this is most fun when it snows, they can't see the ditch. If I see someone hunting on me without permission the first time they get a good talking to (unless there are kids there...don't ruin some kids chance to enjoy hunting becasue his dads an *******) the second time I see them I snap a digital pic, let the air out of a couple of tires and sit back and wait for the game warden...God forbid I see someone with an ATV driving on me...this is where I use nail boards..which aren't boards at all but 1/2 inch pipes with bolts running throug them

I'm interested to find out what all works (I have the same problem on our two sections of land with 4 gates). I like Gingerbears ideas personally.

The only thing that I have been doing that works good when I find an unattended trespassing vehicleis steal either one of the spark plugs (I always have a spark plug wrench in my back pocket for some reason - don't ask, ha ha) or I take the tires (wheel and all - I have a compressor on my truck with pneumatic jack and impact) and leave the truck sitting on rocks. Then I go and call the game warden and tell him where he can pick them up at for trespassing and poaching. Most of the time I get a great big thank you.

From the game warden (ha, ha, ha)

Most of the time he lets me keep the parts I took, he says it compensates me for my trouble. Some times when he doesn't catch them though (he lives several miles away) he goes home. I get out my 22-250 and perch on a spot where I can see the intruder when he comes back to try to retrieve the vehicle and pop off a couple of shots in the general direction (I couldn't ever really kill someone unless they are a mortal threat) usually within a few feet of their location, and they get lost in a hurry. Where I live the law says that anything left on a persons property for a certain ammount of time becomes the land owners (the person on who's property the "thing" was left)property. I usually use it to pay a few bills if the game warden doen't catch themby the time it becomes mine.
