I don't have any blinds on my place but I'm fixing to. Since they decided to put up such a nice set up I'll take advantage of it, only deer going to that pen will be coming from my side. I'm sure they won't mind, need to cull a bunch of does from that section any way.

This is getting old folks, real old.

Awful nice of them to use your place as a backstop for their shooting.....:.:

Call the GW.

Iíd set up a stand directly in their line of fire.

I personally dont like blinds on the fence line as most of the time the only way to shoot carries the bullet across the fence which is against the law. The other side looks like an accident waiting to happen. A bad situation indeed...however many hunters dont see a problem with fence hunting. Just think...the guy hunting the fence could set up on the other side of the blind with a pen such that he would be shooting toward his side of the fence. There needs to be some law to regulate when a dangerous situation exists. This setup probably is within the law..This setup is usually a rookie hunter...needs guidance, and experience.

You can't fix stupid, and I feel your pain.
Leave him a note that you would appreciate that he move it or else.
I think you can reach that feeder easy with a grappling hook which would be the or else.
Looking at the picture, I noticed he has a brush pile to the left if you stand looking at the feeder, or his right of the feeder. Suggest he move the blind there and shoot parallel to the fence so the bullet doesn't cross your fence.
I hunted on a place once that had a blind touching the fence, but he shot parallel to the fence or at least that is what I hoped he did.
It's not fun walking around on your side knowing someone can send a bullet your direction at any time.

The grass is always greener...

And pure laziness, trying to save having to build a 4th side to a feed pen.

I can understand him/her hunting near the fence line if they're on some small acreage, but the stand and feeder spots should be switched around.

High fence that section. Deer will still go around, but activity will be lower.

Probably over half the people on this forum support fence hunting. And most are the people who hate high fences.

That warms all my cockles.

From TPWD...And we all know this. Virtually impossible for them to shoot from that blind and not have their projectile cross your property line. Call the GW and have him come look at the set-up and then go have a talk with the fence line hunters. Or spend about $20k and put up a mile of high fence.

We had a similar incident at our place. GW came out and asked them to move it and they did with no issue.

GW did tell us that he cannot make them move it. It is on their land and until the projectile actually crosses the property line, the other hunters haven't actually committed a crime. He also said that it is almost impossible to prove that the projectile crossed the property line and make the ticket stick because of the lack of evidence. He said that the law was originally designed to be added onto other violations, like shooting a deer across a property line. At that point, it is easy to prove that the projectile crossed a property line.

I like that...

The GW can't make them move it until the law is broken, but he can let the other hunters know that he will be monitoring closely. That plywood fence could be your permanent monitor...

Seems like a good place to park an old camper, or start dumping your gut piles on that spot.

How close to the fence do your property rights go? popcorn

For the record, I don't hunt fence lines but don't care when the neighbors do. With a set up like in the OP, I would ask them to move it like we did with our neighbors. Not move it off the fence, move it so they aren't shooting onto our property. I also don't care about high fences. Just find it interesting that a HF proponent that lays the claim on property rights would argue against someone utilizing their entire property.

Just because something is legal, donít make it ethical.

A 60 yo man could date a 17 yo high school girl legally. Heíd still be an unethical scumbag. He also shouldnít be surprised when he gets his azz kicked (or shot) for doin it.

I would just put up the plywood with a big bullseye target on it.

I put a corn bag with a target on the fence and took a picture of it and posted on here. Member saw it and reached out to me. He moved it and problem solved. He is a great guy.
