Does this qualify as a fence line hunter? Why or why not? Would this bother you if it was neighboring your property?

No it would not bother me since it is his land and his right to hunt it how he wants to. It would bother me more if he was facing his blind and feeder at my land or if I had a road down the fence.

That would not bother me at all no road going down the fence plus deer jump from his place to yours as well. Just get along and work with them could be good for both of you.

I personally wouldn't do it... But, I wouldn't be offended if someone else did.

I guess it came across that I'm upset about this. I was just seeing what others thought. I showed these photos to a friend and he thought I'm way too nice. My biggest is concern is keeping honest. If there's a monster on the fence but on my side, will the hunter have the integrity to do what's right? There's already remains from two deer within 50 yards of the feeder. I found the head of one but not the other. This is goat country, top wires close together of a 10 strand fence, lots of deer hung in fence, so the deer remains don't concern me much.

The stand is located in about the dead center of this photo.

One thing for sure is when he shoots a deer that don't drop in its tracks we know where it is most likely going to run. But that works both ways.

If it were my neighbor, I would have to say that it is his property, and thus entirely his choice as to how he makes use of it. Much the same as it is entirely your choice to let brush grow right up to and/or through the fence on your side of that fence.

If the probable line of fire intersected my property line, I would have an issue. That does not appear to be the case based on the photo.

IMO your native habitat is being taken advantage of... You don't have a relationship where you can call and talk to your neighbor already? If not now is the time to get that relationship going. Explain your herd management intentions and if y'all don't agree you may have to high fence or just bend over and deal with it....

This is true. In most cases, a deer is going to attempt to seek safety in the cover from which it came.

Cover is one of the basic requirements of good deer habitat, and it's obvious that you have it while your neighbor doesn't. But with deer being the cash crop that's in relative high demand, there's no shortage of those willing to lease open pasture with the explicit intent of hunting fences of neighboring properties with good deer habitat.

Your only recourse is to inform your neighbors that it would be illegal for anyone, including a game warden, to retrieve any game or non-game animal that crosses the fence after being shot without landowner permission. It becomes your property, clear and simple. Just as your neighbor has the right to hunt near the fence, you have the right to keep anything that falls on your side.

If you have no interest in working out an agreement with your neighbors, I would suggest adding several posted signs.

Such things brings into question the ethics of those who will hunt a stand and feeder with such a high likelihood that breaking the law will be required to retrieve a deer.

Wouldn't bother me. I could drive my fence lines and take similar pictures of at least 6 blinds just like that.

That's a picture of what drives most high fences up.

It's extremely poor form for a neighbor to put a feeder on your fence like that. But perfectly legal.

Pretty funny that folks think they can keep deer on their side by feeding more. Sooner or later that doe in heat is gonna cross that fence and visit that feeder, possibly dragging the 4 year old mainframe 12 you've been passing with her.

It makes it worse IMO when they have cut all their cover down and are overtly attempting to draw the deer you saved your cover to hold, over to their barren land to shoot.

There's really no reason to pull a stunt like that. Says a lot about your neighbor. And not a lot good.
