A lot of people will hunt the fields next to my group and when things get slow they push the back 20(so bad we had to put someone back there everyday). Also this year there are 5 stands on the fence line of the field as they have tress just on the fence line. Was worried they might try to sneak in using the trail going down the fence line every morning, but looks like the snow on the ground will squash that idea hopefully.
The land I lease gets less and less private every year.
I am not sure where you hunt, but in Shawano Co., we just call the Sheriff Dept., a deputy shows up, bull horns the trespassers to the road,
takes their guns, puts the guns in his trunk, and drives them to jail. We have made that call a time or two...Now the word is out, and we don't
have a trespassing problem. You probably want to talk to the local Sheriff Dept., and the local DA, to see how you should handle a trespassing
violation. Also, you want to check the conditions of your lease. There may be some owner option to allow others access...I would look to a
different lease, if you don't have exclusive access.

The reason we Dont call it in as to be honest a couple of the people are crazy and they live in the area. Personally I think calling it in would be too risky for future years. We didn't have any problems last year with a person sitting back in that area and this year one of the guys saw as dragging a stand back into that part. If it ever happens again though we may just call it in and find a new place to hunt. Its just not worth getting shot. 3 or 4 years ago some was 300 yards away in his barn pointing his gun in our direction. Thankfully I think the worst of them no longer hunt there anymore.
Hard to enjoy a hunt with people invading on you. But as long as they stay on there side of the fence and shoot into the field I Dont care what they do personally.
