Here is his picture.  This was taken on 2/2/13 on my property.  I would like to talk to the guy to find out why he was there.  If it was a mistake or he had a good reason….no problem.  If he was hunting then I’ll get the CPO involved.  The picture was taken in Knox County by Altona.  If anyone can put me in touch with him I would appreciate it.

jcurri. although I have never met you I admire the way you are going about this! MOST people who understand they are not welcome will not be there. Okay there are a few hard heads but again I truly believe you are making the right approach.

enjyrecreation…I admire your positive attitude. Are you a landowner? Just curious. I am…and have had several encounters with several different people on properties I own or co-own.  Everybody has his or her own way of doing things. My experience has shown me that people who are on ground that they do not own, or have permission to be on know full well what they are doing….and those that are lost, etc., are the exception. A few years ago I had someone trespassing on my property. I was going to contact them/question them myself. My neighbor who is retired law enforcement called the local CPO and I did not know it. Turns out there was a nearly all white deer that this guy was trying to kill. Two CPOs confronted the guy at his vehicle and it was found that he was not only well known for fish and game violations, but had a lengthy criminal record as well, with some violent offenses like battery. I was glad the CPOs handled it…because I had no way of knowing what I was actually dealing with. That is why I said to let the CPOs handle it. If the guy made a mistake, a good CPO will recognize it and let it pass.

The guy is calling coyotes thats why he has a shotgun and a rifle for short and long shots. Do you own that big open field in the background? Don’t know any specifics but willing to bet you dont and that he is hunting that field. Bet he put the call inside the timber a bit because the wind is blowing out into that field and the yotes will come in downwind of the call. He may have even shot a yote in that field and it ran onto your property a little ways.  When predator hunting (as well as shed hunting and mushroom hunting), people sometimes have a little different mindset. Bet this guy would never set foot on your property during deer season, and personally, I would let it go. If that is your open field, I may think a bit differently. I would hang on to the pic and keep an eye out for the guy. If that was my open field, and I see him around, I would say something, if not, I wouldn’t say a word to him.

Yea it’s me!  Thanks Doug!  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to take my AK or my Bazooka so I took both! 

Yea I’m with Yellowstone.  That’s a yote hunter.  Still pisses you off though I’m sure

Jedro, I understand and respect your opinion just happen to disagree. If we know someone is in the wrong I think it best to give them a chance to correct themselves before involving law enforcement. If they don’t comply good enough I would have tried. Certainly not fearful of approaching people, have approached many with almost always positive results there is always an exception or two here and there but that doesn’t change my mind on what is the right thing to do.

Enjyrecration, couldn’t agree with you more. There are plenty of bad apples running around for sure, but this guy may not be one of them. Best to talk with the guy in person if possible first. This could be the most ethical hunter in the world with a fairly decent explanation as to what he is doing there. Maybe he asked permission from the neighbor and isn’t familiar with the area and he started there and got mixed up on the boundaries. If the guy were a “professional” trespasser, he would have taken the camera card or the camera itself. Personally, as I said before, I wouldn’t even think of involving the law in this case. I would simply keep the pic and keep my eyes open. If he does it again, let him have it with both barrels (so to speak)

Berlin-  my dad bought it close to 20 years ago and I bought in about 6-7 years back.  Same last name so there is no way he looked at a plat map and it had a different name on it.

Is the property line real close? If it is, then I would go to that land owner and ask if he knows him and has the OK to hunt his land, if so, then tell him to be sure that the guy knows where the property line is and to have him not to cross it. Now if he doesn’t know him and your family has owned that property for that long it’s no mistake and he knows he shouldn’t be there. And who knows, maybe he was hunting somewhere and his ATV broke down or got stuck and he walking the shortist distance for help and I sure wouldn’t leave my guns there either.

The property line is close.  Our piece is 160 and he is about 25 yards inside the property line.  Like I said, if he mistook a property line or had a good excuse then I have no problem with him being there.  If he was hunting, I have a problem with it.  I also coyote hunt out there, usually with my kids, and I don’t want another guy out there with guns.  That’s a recipe for a bad accident,

Totally understandable, just saying though, talking to that land owner next to you might be a good start. Either that guy doesn’t know the property lines and is OK, just needs to be told. Or you both have a problem of someone trespassing. And even if he has the OK from the other land owner, I would still like to know a little about him anyway with you taking your kids back there hunting and rifles being used. And on the other hand and a little luck maybe the two of you could get to talking and work together when hunting the two different properties. I just hope everything works out!
