Love to hear some creative advice on how to address's this issue. Game warden to busy and law enforcement is not entirely interested. We have issues with riding roads, littering tearing down gates, cutting locks etc. It is never ending.   


Since it's a club i want to fly under the radar a little. Not afford to be out on Atv and confront one if i am packing or have ar15.

I'm fixing to get a cheap camera and set it up at gate.

It varies by state what you can do but the  camera or trail cams to identify who is doing what is a safer choice than confronting them and once you have info on who or have the license plate law enforcement will become more interested than what they will be with nothing to go on but a complaint.

Get a few cameras, be discreet or they will disappear.

Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

This really makes me appreciate where I live! Having access to millions of acres of public land to hunt or camp or fish. Love Arizona!
If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

Call 334-242-3465 that's Montgomrey, then ask for Kenny Bradford's number he is the guy for Shelby Co. I use to have it but it's not in my phone.

I mounted cameras about 25 feet up a tree on an adjustable mount. Have them at all entry points and strategically placed throughout my property. After I had several people arrested for criminal trespassing and vandalism they learned to stay away. I didn't give anyone any slack, once I posted the property I took the pictures to the SO and pressed charges. In the area where my property is I really didn't have a choice, no one respects private property.

I bought a cheap wild game innovations camera for the front haye and am going to try to get it mounted someplace that it's not noticeable. I wish the lights didn't glow red.but i hate to pay for a blackout one and have it stolen.

I really feel like prosecution of a few will help greatly.

I really wish there were ways to get bailing wire wrapped around driveshafts and other innocuous things that cause repair bills and tow fees and things like that where it couldn't be tied back to someone.

I'd love a spike strip in the creek but feel like the club people would figure out that was me. I'm not the only member upset about it. How do you go out there with several hundred dollars in camera's or leave a summit climber and feel like it will be there when you come back. ??

My cameras are mounted high, and safety wired to the tree. They tried to knock them down, didn't work and I got pictures of them. I always chain my climber to the tree if I am leaving it, heavy duty chain. Look for cameras at pawn shops, the Detective that I have dealt with told me that is what they do when using them during drug investigations. I was able to get five decent cameras for about $40 each. I made mounts with a 1/4-20 eye bolt and a screw in eye bolt. Here are the plans for them that I found.

The mounts allow me to mount the cameras up high and still get decent pictures.

Shoot a few, the others will get the message - kidding of course


Cameras and trespass charges work better than anything else. If you can get a game warden to help you and they catch them in the act they can potentially loose anything they have with them, which is a real deterrent.

Put up signs along the property boundaries and along trails inside the property that say "WARNING: 24 HOUR SECURITY CAMERAS IN USE," "IF YOU CAN READ THIS, YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED!" etc.

Thieves suck!

Did some holes near the gate with a backhoe. Fill a couple up with loose dirt. Partially bury some road kill and leave some large bones sticking out of the ground. Place a sign on the open hole that says next!. Wink
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

                                                     2. WARNING
                                                    GAME RESERVE
                                                       If your here
                                                        your game

Well, they had a fun day tearing stuff up out there. The upside is all the brush I put out evidently managed to get one of them semi stuck. The ground had black marks all over the place, and there was a broken tow strap. 

If only I could find some rusty barb wire out there. I'd cut it down and spread it around where they go around the gate, and hope it tore up a driveshaft. 

I emailed a guy at another club down my way and he has the same problems. I did find about 10 glass beer bottles, so I tucked them in under some of the brush they drive over. May or may not do anything. 

Timber co has to come put up a new gate for us too. I still say we need to give 2 deputies a free membership each. All they have to do is deal with trespassing. 

I got my camera and the camo flage stuff for it. I just need to set it up and see if I can get anyone on it.
