That will be a nice wake-up call to both the parents and the kids once the law gets to their house.

Just because it's bad-a** don't mean it's a good idea.

I would hate a call the law on a kid for shooting a .22. God knows I shot them where I shouldn't have when I was that age, however, if a neighbor ever told my dad that I was shooting where I shouldn't have been, he would have put an end to it in no uncertain terms. The parents are more to blame for not stopping it than the kid is for doing it. Unfortunately, if they won't do anything about it, you aren't left with many options. I guess I would call the sheriff.

Call the law if he is being that careless and his parents are to it's just a matter of time before he really crosses the line.

If he is shooting toward an into your property line then that is reckless endanerment, also shooting the posted signs can be seen as vandalism or destruction of property so yes, there is plenty you can do, he shoot all he wants on his land but the bullets have to stay on his land

I know that it may be annoying but, him simply shooting during your "prime time" is not a crime. I would have another talk with the parents and have the kid there and let them know that someone has been shooting signs again and ask the kid to keep an eye out for trespassors and such so that you can contact the law about it. Explain how it costs you time and money to replace them and not to mention it's unsafe.

I would exhaust all other methods to resolve the problem before I called the law on a kid because after all if the parents don't know any better how could the kid.

Maybe you could consider and/or offer to "mentor" the kid in hunting and teach him some values??
If not for bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all.

There is also a law against hunter harrassment...and if he's shooting that much every evening it would easliy be harrasment.
Everytime I see you....there you are.

There is a possibility heisbreaking all kinds of laws. One the comes to mind that has some teeth is reckless endangerment.

Bottom line. Call the police and file a report. A visit fromt he cops is a good wakeup for the neighbors. I would not fiddle fart around either. I would call now.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.

All it takes is a knock on the door (try to not look like the uni-bomber when you visit), and a word with his parents. It will shut down his random shooting quick!
Some hunt for racks, some hunt for roasts. I hunt for sheer joy; the aforementioned items are merely fringe benefits.
