As mentioned, a second well hidden cell camera about 10-15 feet off ground pointing at the other one.

have you tried knocking on the door and asking him about it?

Iíve spoken to him quite a few times, acts like my best friend to my face but literally in his head anyone that hunts is a poacher. I couldnít tell you how many times the CO has showed up to my house, he goes as far as calling different officers because i havenít been arrested for poaching (hunting). Iím not just saying heís mentally crazy, he is actually insane, he tells everyone my neighbor tried to kill him with a crossbow, says he shot at him through his truck door, last year he pulled his pistol on another guy who hunts next to his property. Itís one thing after another, several years back the CO actually set up at night behind my house at night to try and catch him off his property. Their just as sick of the guy as i am and were thinking he might actually be the one poaching. I got a text from him in the middle of the night last season that guys were poaching in my woods, it was literally pouring rain in the middle of a thunderstorm with 40mph winds, nobody was back their. I just politely tell him iíll check the cameras. I was shooting my hawken at the house one day and i get a text from him that someones in my woods poaching with a .22magnum. He literally makes these things up in his head and he really believes it. Iíve about had it with the guy.

Talk to the CO who set up behind your house and give him the sd card


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Have you ever looked at a restraining order. In the peoples republic of Minnesota you can place a harassment restraining order on a person. If he calls or texts you he goes to jail. Look and see if that's an option for you. Maybe a few trips to jail may change his attitude.

Sounds like a crazy old timer. Tough situation. If he is pulling pistols on people on their own property it sounds like the problem just might work itself out though.

If you are a avid hunter and trapper I wouldn't think it would take much to catch a 75 year old man trespassing. Whip out your cell phone and video the confrontation of you running him off and send it to the warden.

Sounds like you and the neighbors that he has been involved with need to go to the local law as a group and demand something be done before he hurts someone.

By the sound of it he is capable of causing harm to one of you.

Like others have said, a second camera (no flash is a must) above reaching height aimed at camera he knows about will catch him in the act

And around that ground decoy camera, smear a whole lot of lure with some good skunk essence smell to it so his clothes rub it.

We use this for the Power-puffers that go down our trapping trails----they sure get a few heads turned when they enter the bar with their " favourite riding jackets" on.
The chick magnet for " wanta go for a ride" is broken.

Doesn't Indiana have hunter harassment laws? Start documenting everything and press charges.

Several years ago i got him on video trespassing and harassing, the game warden turned it in to the prosecuting attorney to start a case. The guy backed off for a couple years and now heís back at it! Iím really hoping i can recover the deleted pics from the sd card and get the ball rolling again.

Get a 2x10 and pound a bunch of 3 1/2" spikes through it. Then bury the board at the base of the tree your cameras on with the nails coming through leaf litter.
