    I have about 30 acres of primo hunting land here in North Dakota right outside of Fargo (ND's largest city). I have the land posted in multiple area's that Hunting and tresspassing is not allowed. I live about 15 minutes away from the property and dont have the luxury to patrol it often.

    I know for a fact that an @$$hole that lives close to this hunting land uses it often and tresspasses using his 4wheeler. He owns no property besides his tiny yard but still has a deer cart attached to his 4 wheeler.

    Does anyone know any neat tricks how I can catch him on the property, stop him from entering, ect.? I see a spot where he has been driving around my fence line next to the river so I put down a spike strip of nails to hopefully flatten all of his tires.

    I am open to hearing any creative suggestions. I have also thought about bugging his 4 wheeler with a GPS tracker but think that can be pretty expensive. Thoughts???

    If you can't stop. Charge him to you your land or hire (wage=permission to hunt) him to take care of your propetry. Sounds like your asking for problems if lay down spike strips just my .02. Good luck

    We had trouble like this with some family land. We just got a few friends involved and eventually caught and spoke with the criminals. We would just camp out at random times. Also we were the primary care takers of the land so we let it be known that we would be gone. Then had friends hang out. We tried the fence and tack strips but it never worked.

    GPS trackers aren't very expensive now days, but something makes me think that it might be illegal.

    Easy thing first, have you tried just going over there and talking with him and letting him know its not ok and why?

    I would suggest posting up one day/night with a good video camera and catch him in the act. Show him the video and let him know if he does it again, you will show the police and get him for trespassing.

    If you know where he's coming in to your property, maybe set-up a motion camera to catch him in the act (make sure you get the No Tresspassing sign in the frame). Then it turns into a legal hassle though... Have you tried confronting him in person? He might be willing to pay you to hunt your land or could be too ignorant to know the land belonged to someone who cares. Those signs are everywhere around here to the point where they just get ignored. If he knows you actually care and notice, he might stop (doubtful but stranger things have happened). I'm assuming the property is large enough where fencing isn't an option?

    if hes a dick then let him know there are tack strips and cameras set up. he'll be warned

    If i were you buy some game Camera and put them where you think he goes. It will only take pictures when it senses motion. Upload the pictures and prosecute him for trespassing.

    I am going to suggest the game camera (as stated before) but with a twist. Purchase a broken one from ebay. Place it where the he is trespassing but make sure it is in plain site. Then place another one (working camera) that can't be seen but will monitor the other camera (broken one).

    One of two things should happen:
    1: He will stop trespassing
    2: He will molest or possibly steal the broken camera while trespassing

    Win/win. If the second scenario holds true, you've got him on film trespassing and stealing.

    I forgot to provide some background on this colorful character that is tresspassing. My Dad owns a farm about 2 miles away and has continually had issues with him. I would say this guys is a nutjob on a good day. He has made several threats to many of the neighbors who have had to deal with his BS. He drives his 4 wheeler by our farm and purposely tailwhips in our gravel driveway along side of the road to kick up gravel. He has been arrested on multiple occasions for random things. I wouldn't consider confronting him an option, especially since he will have a weapon in hand.

    I understand GPSing his 4 wheeler might illegal but I would use it for personal use just to see where he is entering and going on the property. Does anyone know where to buy a cheap small GPS device that I could check via google maps or something?

    I have considered a trail cam. I am actually going to post some This property is under survaillence signs where he is entering just to let him know im sick of his $hit. Im not trying to start WW3 with him but I think it is crazy that he going on my property since we do not have a good relationship.

    X2 you'd be better off with using a Game Camera..

    That's a good idea. You can put anything you want on your property. You just don't have to tell him about it....:D

    Yeah, I'd put them just after the 'No trespassing' sign and maybe a sign just after the spike strip saying, "now get the F out."

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Wow, this guy sounds like a real d*ck.
    As a civilian you can't put a GPS tracker on his ATV or at least I'm pretty sure you can't, and I wouldn't recommend you doing it. But the Police can, even without a warrant says the courts.

    Anyways, I was thinking you could talk with other property owners and get in contact with the local Police department or Sheriff, Sheriff would probably have jurisdiction on this. And see if they would be able to do this or help in some way.

    If they can't, you're screwed and you're going to have to just deal with Him. Or put up a fence which may result in no dear for you.

    I like the game camera idea, but it may not be much of a charge or fine against him for just one property owner. But if it's multiple property owners, it could be a much different deal.

    I have a feeling you're just going to have to learn to live with him. I'm guessing no amount of no trespassing signs, and possible imprisonment or fines will stop him.

    my dad had this same problem. homeless people were coming into his yard/shop stealing copper wire/metal fitings etc..and then selling it. what he did was pound some nails into a 2x4 and place them upside down where the homeless people would jump down from the fence. do this except put it where he always drives into your land.
