I need some help in a situation I am dealing with. I hunt on private land that my great uncle owns. He has in the past but rarely let others hunt both bow and turkeys on his property. It never was a real problem, but an annoyance at times. I help him out on his property, take care of trails, food plots for me etc. There is a guy from Racine whom my Uncle still lets out and he just waltzes in and goes pretty much where he chooses to without checking with my other family members. Well now my two sons and another cousin are at the age of hunting and my boy wants to set up a bowstand very close to where I think this guy usually sits. My uncle also told me he thinks he is turkey hunting this week, which is also my sons and I season. This racine dude will have no clue we are there, and I am positive that when I park my truck there earlier than him, that he will still waltz in making a situation more dangerous. I do not want him around, he is not polite and he is not family. I know that this is somewhat selfish on my part as I dont own the land or pay the taxes or own the wildlife. He comes up and reaps the rewards of us protecting the land. My Uncle is older and does not need to deal with the problem so I have not nor will I bring it up with him. What would you do???
I dont have the guys number, and dont want to stir the pot as I dont want to lose our privelage (which it is a huge privelage) to hunt on this property. But he has ruined my hunts in the past and I dont want that to happen to my sons or cousins.
As a side note, this guy used to hunt the neighboring property before he got kicked off, and then he asked my uncle and caught him on a good day, so the guy is slippery to begin with I think.
