Default This is a must read because i need help!!!

I hunt about 65 yards from my property line. Ive never stepped foot on the property that im by. One day last week the property owner next to me seen me checking my camera cause he was on his quad. He stared at me the whole time as he drove by. He is not a hunter, he is actually against it. Anyways, yesterday i got up in my stand and i could smell something that shouldnt belong in the woods. Almost like a chemical of some sort. When my morning hunt was done at 11 oclock i got down out of my stand and found the main source where the smell was coming from, and i could not believe what i found. He had put deer repellent all over my salt lick, and all around my main opening where i hunt. Now i know this was deer repellent or "deer-x" because i used to work for a company where we used it on peoples lawns. I raked up all the leaves and the rain this week will take care of the rest, but thats not the point. What should i do? Im not the type that gets revenge on people, should i call the DNR?
-Thanks for whoever reads this.

Reposition your camera to face your salt lick. Try and get him to see you are "replacing" the salt lick and hopefully he will get caught on camera. I would then approach him in an adult manner and ask that he remain on his own property and that he shouldnt be trespassing. If he plays dumb let it be, you know he will cross the line again and get caught on camera again. Once that happens, immediately inform law enforcement about someone trespassing on your property and have them come out and speak with him.

thanks for the comment. And ive talked to him many times. He knows that im only 18. Hes in his 60's!
I think he gets mad when i leave with deer. I dunno. He seems like a nice guy. His wife is friends with my aunt even!
im just in complete and utter devastation on why he would do this. Thanks for the help.

He did it, because he is a small petty man.
He can't stand that others don't believe as he does.
He is bound to make your time miserable. Hoping to drive you from the area.

These kind of a$$ H***es Won't quit. I have one by me and he is always up to something to try and destroy my hunting. I caught him red handed dumping that stuff by my stand and hanging it in plastic drip bags on our fence line. He has entered my shack and messed with my stuff so I would see it moved.

I would just move but it isn't that easy as I am disabled and have to hunt out of a 5x5 shack. I have hunted there for 15 yrs before this Moron moved in next door. I still get deer and am not quiting because of him. I do however carry a .44 mag just in case he attempts to cross the line and assault me.

Now days you can't be too safe! I just wanted to let you know there are other hunters suffering the same experiences as you.

Good luck and Good Hunting!

Get proof. Then prosecute. Once you get him once, any future actions will automatically point to him, with stiffer repercussions. An inexpensive DPS Truth cam by Primos ($70), positioned close enough, set at 5 second between shots will do for daytime. Put black tape over the red light indicator and hide the camera well.

A regular flash game camera will be needed at night.

The golden rule of hunting these days is NEVER LET YOUR NEIGHBORS KNOW WHERE AND HOW YOU ARE HUNTING! I had neighbors pull some "crap" on me this year too! In my case I don't think it was an antihunter, but rather a jealous hunter, which is a lot less of a problem.

I had a problem with a neighbor about a different situation but like you they were doing things that were not legal. One call about what they were doing followed by a a visit from the authorities I never had the problem again and surprisingly they were very nice to me after that.

Make sure your property line is posted according to regulations so that there is no doubt that he is knowingly trespassing. Yea I know he knows but if you catch him doing it again you want it to be so solid he has no way out on any technicalities.

In addition it might be worth a call to your game commission. In PA it is illegal to harass anyone who is legally hunting. Not sure if pouring that stuff on the ground fits that category but I think that the more you impress on him that you are not going to take it the sooner he decides to give up.

Hell I would even check with the local environmental dept if you catch him spilling stuff on your property. They might be obligated to checking out dumping of an unknown liquid on your property. The cost to determine if it is hazardous or not and any removal they may require would be placed on him. 20 years in that business and I can tell you that it would not be cheap.

I think I would shoot at any game that was near by every time I saw him anywhere near the shed that you hunt out of.

Thumbs down

What would I do? What would I do? WHAT WOULD I DO?!?!

Well I tell ya I'd find that SOB and I'd.....I'd march right over there and I would......I'd get him right in front of me......I'd look him right in the eye and I would......I would.......I would....

Well just never mind. You don't want or need to know what I would do. It wouldn't be pretty though I will tell you that!

I don't know if his age would come into it or not but he would receive a good attitude adjustment and be told exactly why he was the lucky recipient.

But I wouldn't be dumb enough to do it myself - that's what friends are for.

I would speak with him about it once and only once. Let him know you won't tolerate it one bit in the future and if he wants to play games that's fine. Point out that everyone gets a turn in a game and you'll take your turn too.

If he keeps it up - call your boys. Sometimes a good busted lip and a few black eyes changes people perspectives and attitudes.

Doing whatever he does on his property is one thing (although it could still be hunter harassment) but when he starts coming on your property......

Thanks everyone for taking your time to read my issue. I will take all of your ideas and put them into one. Im going to try talking to him once. Let him know that i will not take that sort of harassment. Thanks again. I just dont understand why he would do anything like this. F****** people these days!
