Shed hunting trespassers and rule breakers
« on: May 02, 2024, 11:10:48 AM »
So I own some land next to DNR. I get lots of trespassers.

The guys on foot complain about the guys on dirt bikes and quads. The guys on quads and dirt bikes complain about the guys on snowmobiles and tracked side by sides and the tracked guys complain about the tracked nuts that got there before them.

I’ve talked to them all and rather than taking responsibility for trespassing they just complain about the guys that were trespassing before them.

So frustrating especially for the guys doing it right, not trespassing, not driving motor vehicles on closed roads.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

A shed hunting season wouldn’t fix the issue. There are already enough rules. No trespassing, no motor vehicles on closed roads, no entering the feed stations before May 1.  We need more enforcement of the rules we have and need to prosecute those that break the rules.

The real question is why do they want those sheds so bad they’re willing to break the law to get them in the first place… $$$

I know a guy who puts them on blast and they get a visit from a deputy. They don't return.

Oh cmon Rainier10, I was blasted on the corner crossing thread for saying this kind of thing happens constantly. It rarely ever happens. Like almost never... They aren't trespassing, hunters don't act like that. We are a team and we need full unfettered access to all public lands at all times for any and all reasons. We are America!

You know where I'm going with this... I'm sorry that you once again have to deal with trespassers who accidentally ignored your no trespassing signs and were just exercising their right to enter public lands. How many times a year would you guess hunters trespass on your property?

These guys politely ripped down my signs and through them off the edge of my road, smashed my cameras, took the chips, tossed one camera in the creek and another in a 12” deep puddle.

I would say 4-5 guys every week during shed season, 3-4 times a day during hunting season and yes it is licensed hunters. They give the good guys a bad name for sure and when I say the good guys I mean the ones that just trespass through on foot not motor vehicle, without damaging property and cameras, or stealing sheds or poaching animals during and out of season.

That’s my new definition of a good guy, someone who just walks through my place without permission to be there.

It is very sad that this is the new reality.... No reason for law fearing people anymore because the law doesn't get enforced.

Seems like you have a pretty level head when dealing with them. I would get extremely tired of it and start pushing the line. Probably do something like this....

Try the SpyHigh mounting system, won't stop a bullet, but most likely they won't see the cam.

the one that got shot was 15’ up a tree.

Replaced it with a cell cam and they climbed the tree from behind, removed the batteries and chip, unhooked the camera and threw it in that frozen mud puddle

The best time to go in and out is under the cover of darkness. The red lights of the cameras are obvious at night.
