Oh, that requires a scarecrow exposing himself on your side. Or, get one of those concrete bucks and set it just out of rifle range on your property. Gonna take a little effort to get the paint color just right, but I think it's worth it.

I'd write a note saying it was against the law to shoot into your property, tell them to move it immediately, or you will call the game warden.
Then sign it,
Deputy Sheriff Jones

I did write below the target that it was illegal to shoot across property lines. They have no cover, we do. Their camp is right past the blind and is open for a couple miles. I guess they think since they pay the landowner for open fields they can do this. They have two more feeders with 200 yards of here. One is about 60 yards off fence and other is just in the middle of a field used for cows. It must be the cheapest lease in Texas. They have a camp with about 5 or 6 campers right off county road so I can leave them a note there but not sure they will care. I'll just make sure they know we exist since they possibly thought no one was on the other side since we keep our property away from lines not visible to anyone.

Obviously someone who believes that anything that's legal (putting a feeder near a property line when you have no attractive habitat on your land) must also be ethical.

I'll bet they put the shot up feedback there as a message.

Call the game warden and get this handled the right way. This is a dangerous situation that doesn't warrant any 'warnings' - law already violated (shooting corn-bag target thru fence-line).

Shooting across fencelines = no bueno at all.

And I get that it is "your" property line. But it is also their property line - like it or not, you don't get to dictate what your neighbor does on their side of the property line.

I am sure that everybody that complains about a neighbor setting up a feeder or stand on "your" property line probably does several things on your side that may not be what the neighbor likes to see as well.

EDIT - this is for the feeder and blind hunting/complaining that happens when a neighbor has a feeder or stand on a fenceline. The setup int he OP's picture is just bad, bad, bad stuff because of the layout and the fact that they are almost guaranteed to shoot across a fenceline as a result.

To be clear, we have no proof of any shooting across the fence line though I am sure it has happened if they actually saw something. I just put the corn bag on the fence to let them know we are watching and maybe they' ll get the point. I'll check it in a week when I go out and maybe put another one up if it is still there. We have over 1,000 acres and so do they so this is just stupid.

I would strongly advise leaving off the "Deputy Sheriff" part.

Unless he is one, of course. smile

Sure it is against the law to shoot across a fence, but has anyone ever heard of someone being convicted or fined for doing so?
I've never even heard of a GW forcing someone to move a feeder away from a fenceline, and I doubt they have the authority to do so.
Instead of a feedbag why not put up a couple of professionally painted signs warning no shooting across fenceline.
