GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!!! my friend and i have thought this as well. however, even as a engineer i dont know of a place to easily obtain ap mines. ("toe poppers" would work wonders) and we've thought about putting pieces of pointed rebar in the ground at an angle to pop tires...but now they have cut open our gate so if we put rebar there...it would deny access to us as well.
the place is not out of the way for us to go to at all.. matter of fact i go by the place at least 4 times a week. we were just in there on monday (13 april) and aside from the cable that we already knew was down..everything was fine. then we go back on thursday (16 april) and the gate has been cut down. we rode around on the land...took down some tree stands and ran into a neighboring landowner and a deputy sheriff... it was kind of humarus. the neighbor has gotten a new 4x4 pickup we had never seen so we thought we had cought someone in the act of stealing from him again. and they didnt recognize us in my buddys 2500 cummins because it was dark.. there was a lot of shouting back and forth, but luckily it didnt escalate to either side drawing their sidearms. we filed a 5th report
with the deputy (different deputy than the other times) and we got told that he (the deputy) had already had a tree stand and 2 trail cameras stolen from the same area.
he also told us to "avoid a confrontation" was his professional opinion and then said he felt the same as we do. he also said if we catch the little sheet heads to go to the magistrates office and swear out warrants on them if we know who they are.
i think cyclone was the one that mentioned joining a ranch... thats a good idea but i dont know of any around here to join..i will do some searching on Mr. Gore's internet though.
my buddy and i have already decided that since it isnt out of the way to go to that we are going to visit it every other day. and the posted signs are up at least every 400 ft around the boundry line and several places inside the property just incase someone happens to "miss" one on the boundry
