This is long, so bare with me. We have lived here for going on 18 years. We rented for about 13 years from a nice guy. He died & his daughter got the place. We rented from her for about 2 years. She then sold us 3 1/2 acres with the house & buildings. She lives in Ohio, we are in Indiana. She asked us to continue to keep an eye on her property. Said if we wanted to allow anyone to hunt, it was up to us. We do let one guy go that hunted here when her dad was alive. He's very nice & gives us the meat when he gets a deer. My brother & nephew also hunt once in awhile. Since I have lived here, there has been a guy & his son that want to hunt. We have always told them no. Even when the original landlord was alive yet. He said it was up to us since we were the ones living here. So, every year the answer has been NO. They finally quit asking & now just sneak in. I have called the cops a few times, but they have never been able to catch them. My brother lives down the road from us in a trailer. He rents & his landlord also lives in Ohio. Same situation. He has run the guys off at his place many times. He called & they did get caught once. Of course they made up a bunch of lies & were basically given a warning. His landlord said she will prosecute next time. The next day the dad, stopped at my brother's & got in his face & threatened him. Told him if he ever called the law on them again he'd be sorry. Well, tonight they were here coon hunting. So I called the cops. My brother came down to indentify the truck. I was pretty sure it was them & he confirmed it. So, a state cop comes out to try to catch them. When he got here, the truck was gone. It had been parked in the driveway across from our house. I am sure as soon as they saw my brother they knew what was up. The cop drove up the driveway & as soon as he got in the woods we saw lights come on. They had moved their truck & were trying to get their dogs & get out. I saw them up in the woods with their lights & heard the dogs running. They were parked on the the main road from ours. Cop comes back out the drive & I tell him where they were parked. They had turned their lights back off. So off he goes. FINALLY!!! Every other time we have called the cops miss them by just a little bit. He stopped back later to talk to us. Of course the guy fed him a bunch of lies. Said they were just retrieving their dogs. The officer told us the guy had his gun on him. If he was just retrieving his dogs he didn't need his gun. I also told the officer if they needed to retrieve their dogs all they had to do was stop & ask. They lie so much & have an awful reputation around here for hunting where they shouldn't. Told the cop that they were on someone else's property where they were parked getting the dogs. So I took a ride with the officer & showed him the property lines. He said they were clearly lying to him after he saw the boundries. So, I wrote up a statement & will call the former landlady tomorrow to let her know what happened. If she wants to pursue it, he said he will turn it over to the prosecutor. I am so sick of these guys doing this. I think my brother called the cops on them at least 4 times last year. I do worry now that they will do something to him or his place since the guy threatened him. I told him he should ahve called the cops & told them about the threat just so they had it on file. My brother said he's not worried. I told him if anything happens or they stop there or come back here, I will call the cops again. Why can't some people learn? Even after being told hundreds of times by every person on this road not to hunt, they still sneak in & do it. I actually hope she does prosecute them because maybe they will learn. I kow this guy's family & they have property they can hunt on. I guess they think since the owners are out of state that they can just do what they want. I am sick of people that do not respect other people's property. Not sure why exactly I posted this. I guess because I needed to vent. I'll have to update if anything comes out of this.
