Looks like a good setup to me. He can see down that long fence line. And those that say he has nothing to offer deer with his open field, well if that was true, no deer would cross the fence in the first place. He isnt shooting across the property line. I guess if a big buck crosses his property from the far side and goes onto yours, you wouldnt shoot it?

I swear, by some of the comments on here makes me think these guys want HOA type rules to cover what you can do on your own land.

This question is for the hunters that this wouldn't bother, if you were hunting the stand in the field, would you be bothered if TxAggie10 set up a stand 20 yards to the left of the feeder...say 3 feet on his side of the fence and shoot the deer that are walking to the feeder that you have been supplying? I'm just wondering if there is any unwritten common courtesy in today's world or if most hunters go by "as long as its legal" who cares about courtesy. I guess this must be a flat bill era thing... My grandpa would hop out of his grave and slap the s#$% out of me if I did this to anyone.

This would bother me. It is not safe. Anyone ever seen a bullet ricochet after hitting a deer? The line from his stand to his feeder needs to be pointing back into his place.

what ever happened to this law...I sure wish it would've passed

http://www.[censored]/forums/viewtopic.php?t=23

if we are going to allow unsafe hunting practices, why would we even make people take hunters safety...it's hypocritical, IMO bang

I can't link that forum, it's against the rules but google "Hunting Fence Lines in Jeopardy", it's a very good read

Looks like a safe line of sight stand to feeder so the shot is not crossing the fence. Would not like it, but i would not be that upset. What i would and have done is put a tripod or other stand 100 to 200 yards inside from the fence in my cover across from the feeder. Out of line of sight from the stand and feeder if possible so you and any deer around you are not constantly glassed from the neighbor's stand. Older experienced deer hitting the open ground feeder will stage in the thick cover before hitting the feeder after dark. That is where you want to be and I would not place my own feeder. Make lemonade out of the situation. It could end up being the best stand on your place.

Wouldn't bother me in the slightest. His feeder is angled away from the fenceline and from what I can see, there is brush on his side of the on beyond the blind. We also don't know what the brush is like left of the blind, in the distance or right of the feeder. This is commonplace and has been since people were hunting out of deerblinds and feeders. Don't you think you are also getting deer crossing through his pasture out of the brush on his side too? Perfectly legal and not unethical as I see it.

Huh? Looks like he is shooting back towards his land to me. And no I have never seen a bullet ricochet after hitting a deer.

I have it so bad on two sides of my ranch it is almost comical. except that their feeders are only about 5 foot from my fence and their shots are directly at our property. Twice we have pictures of their "tracking dogs" on our place. They have been warned by the GW now twice and we have 10 cameras along the fence lines. Now they are erasing the SD cards. We will catch them as I work for a trail cam company and can put out as many as I need to.

Maybe naive of me but regarding fenceline infractions, I assume innocence until I have hard evidence of an actual infraction. At that point, my perspective changes quite a bit; until then I don't sweat it.

It is at a VERY slight angle. I have seen bullets take much greater angles after hitting a deer. Of course a bullet isn't gonna go 90 degrees, but it may go 10 or 15 degrees, putting it over the fence and right down that road.

Hope you don't have a blind within eyesight on your side of the fence.

Our neighbor to our east, who sells hunts, built a blind right on the fence between our properties a couple of years ago. We've had a blind in place a couple of hundred yards from the fence for eight years.

My son and I decided to hunt our blind one morning. We were both glassing with binocs around when my son said "Would you look at this idiot?", pointing at the blind on the fenceline.

Here is a bonehead, in the fence blind, looking at us through the scope on his rifle.

After the second time it happened, I got down, walked over, and had a little chat with him. Basically, I told him if he pointed his rifle at us again I was going to drag him out of the stand and I wouldn't be in a talking mood.

I talked to the neighbor's ranch manager a few days later. He couldn't apologize enough. He, then, told me his customer complained to him that I had ruined his hunt. He also told me that he would put signs in each of his blinds warning of looking through rifle scopes at other hunters.

"Some people you have to tell them to sweep the floor. Others, you have to tell them to GET THE BROOM and sweep the floor."

I've dealt with this issue, and worse, so many times in the last 30 years I can't even begin to count. As previously stated by several, your best course of action is to put a stand on your side, facing into your property, with no windows facing them. I have done this before, and usually the 'offending' feeder/blind disappear soon afterwards. It also makes me chuckle thinking of the reaction these hunters have the first time they see my new setup. I have no doubt I get a thorough cussing.


Thank you...thank you very much

what about just plain old common sense and respect for your neighbors? Equivalent to letting your dog bark all night next to your neighbors bedroom window or having a bright light shine all night into a neighbors house - I was taught growing up to treat others like you would want to be treated. For me that still goes - wouldn't dream of putting my stand and feeder on my neighbors fence line.

YEP! But then again, nobody wants HOA rules because they don't want to be told what they can do on their own land. They just want to make sure their neighbors can't do what they don't approve of them doing.

Ever notice when people complain most about a lack of common sense in when the common sense of another doesn't agree with what the speaker doesn't think is right?

"Common sense" is information or understandings held in common. Based on the discussion of this thread, the "correct" placement of that stand and feeder is not commonly held.

It's not a common sense issue, it's a safety and integrity issue, very different. I wish it was common sense, but I think that term is a myth these days, "common sense" waved bye bye to this world a long time ago...

With an open "field/goat grazing area" with that kind of cover surrounding it I object to that set-up. They should remove the feeder & plant it all in wheat to lure in the does & bucks that perceive feeders & feeder pens as a death trap.
