You have to work with the land owner and carry out his wishes. You can't put up posted signs without his permission, and I wouldn't confront any trespassers without his guidance/permission. Any contact with trespassers should be kept cordial and polite - informing them that they have accidently strayed onto private land... unless the land owner tells you differently. You don't want to provoke an incident on your own accord -- any retaliation won't be against you, it will most likely be against the land, and thus the landowner.

So, step one, find out what the landowner wants you to do, and follow his rules. Offer to post the land for him if he wants, and only call law enforcement if he wants you to.

You really need to check with the landowner and only do what he asks. Many people won't want to be bothered with the hassle. If it becomes a big deal even though you are right you may loose your spot. Just be careful about what you do. Hunting is a priveledge not a right on somebody elses land.

The only thing that works is having the State Police arrest them for trespassing. This must be done by the land owner. An eye witness can get info and testify if needed that said person was seen on the property. But the land owner needs to prosecute! But it only takes nailing one or two people before the word spreads and people get it!! Unfortunately people don't have any respect anymore and the only thing that works is nailing them when they are caught.[:@]
