They should have gotten him for pulling a gun on you too. Isn't that a felony, especialy if its on YOUR property. Sorry, but I would have really been tempted to shoot the dumbass for pulling a gun.

Sure they can occupy my land. I just can't guarantee that they will not be leaving with a few extra holes.

I can't recall if he was arrested for that too, but my wife should remember, so I'll ask her when she gets home this weekend.

I'm not a doom and gloomer but, if / when the SHTF, this squatting will be the norm and not the exception. As a civilized society, and knowing we don't go around shooting people for simple trespass. During a national emergency, economic collapse, natural disaster, etc. The police / Sheriff's department with their hands full and maybe answering only bona-fide life / death situations, and not concerned with trespassing...

What's yawl's plan of action?

It certainly isn't letting squatters use up my resources.

As a civilized society in a shtf situation if someone sneaks on to my property past the no trespassing signs and fence then I as a civilized member of society will defend myself my family and my land. I wont go around shooting unless they pull on me but if they are on my land without asking if its ok ill make sure i have my gun with me when i tell them to get the he// out before i count to 3.

I don't know, but since then my uncle has been talking about getting a taller fence and a lot of razor wire, the only reason I didn't call the cops it is would have taken them half an hour to get there. We did talk to land owner next door he had zero clue who we were talking about so my cousin and uncle will be making "patrols" around the property. All I know is if those people aren't more careful they might end up getting shot by some angry land owner.

The guy is probably bipolar. I have a friend who fits the description exactly. He would have done the same thing as the guy you describe. Generally you can set boundaries with them and they will generally stick to them. My friend is homeless by choice. He is very intelligent, very talented and a big pain in the ass if you let him.

I have problems like this as well. I live about 180mi away from my land. Luckily the neighbors patrol 3-4 times a day on 4-wheelers. The problem is a night they go out spotlighting deer at night, clean them, and leave the carcass for us to clean up. Really pisses me off. It only happens 2-3 times a year though. One day I will catch them and hopefully scare them enough to keep them away. Local sheriff can't seem to track them down. Other property owners in the area have to deal with the same thing.

Someone that walks onto your property may just be passing through and mean no harm,or they may be scouting resources to steal and possibly "take by force". I WILL find out what their intentions are because my families safety comes first. I will confront them with a weapon and find out why they are tresspassing. I will then escort them off of my property, whether they walk or have to be carried is up to them
