Ok so here is my situation and there isn't really anything I can do about it. My neighbors land (about 4acres) joins our land on an old logging road on top of a ridge for a grand total of about 20 yards. My neighbors kid every afternoon gets up on the road above my best stand location and shoots usually between 50-100 rounds through his .22 rifle over a span of about an hour before dark. That I don't guess I can do anything about, but now he has started shooting my posted signs and my other (good) neighbors posted signs and gate! this kid is 15 or 16 years old and I'm about ready to give him something his mom and dad should of done a long time ago!!
Sorry I had to rant to somebody.. It gets really annoying sitting in stand trying to see a deer when some kid is standing above you shooting up stuff. I don't know how he affords all the bullets he blows through.

If he's firing bullets at your property (your signs have monetary value), then there *is* something you can do about it.

I would talk to his parents first. if that goes nowhere, the law will certainly put a scare into him.

Oh yea I guess I should of added my (good) neighbor and myself have talked to the parents and they acted as if it wasn't a big deal. This took place back in September and its still going on. Hate to call the law on the kid but its getting to that point. I don't mess with their property and I expect the same in return.

It sounds like reckless endangerment and vandalism to me. It is time he gets a dose of the sheriff's dept.

Call the law in. If hes shooting onto your property and damaging it whos to say the bullet couldnt come and hit you or worse a kid.

Call the law. Time to teach the kid, and more importantly the parents, a lesson.
