So I need some ideas or personal experiences. I am in the works with a large property that has 3 main road access points. A fair amount of traffic and I get asked nearly everyday by passer by if I can fish the property. So I am looking for solutions I do have about 10 green signs displayed that say are no hunting or fishing violators will be prosecuted. This seems to have little effect.

So what options do I have?

Any way of blocking the view? Trees, berm, whatever?

Fences and gates. Locked.

May just need to call the police (just warnings were required, no arrests). That was what a neighboring farmer had to finally do on his remote land. He also allowed one (just one) fellow to hunt it with the agreement that he kept others out. This has worked pretty well for many years now.

I will say I don`t have enough dirt material for the berm. I can do trees or fences or both. What types of fences or trees should I be thinking of.

I have talked to our local wildlife officer to help keep a passing eye on the land.

Thanks

I had trespassers. Sister caught them, I responded, took pictures, and asked states attorney & conservation police officer to prosecute. CPO gave the two individuals tickets, SA prosecuted, each paid $175 in fines. I then set up two trail cameras that should catch someone coming in, ensured gate was closed, and put ip big sign..

Of interest, ASCS office person told them about it and who owned it, they confirmed it and checked it out on google satellite images.

In this day and age I would firstly set up game cameras that link to cell phones to advise you immediately of trespassers and even without that I would put up signage to that effect,, let people know that they are on camera and reported, not in a couple weeks when you check your camera but are being watched and recorded live, right at this minute, and law enforcement is on the way even as you read this.
My biggest beef I have with it is the disrespectful rifraf that trespasses,, there is a private lake here local that a lot of people sneak in and fish, it is owned by a municipality that really doesn't care, just puts up no trespassing signs for liability reasons, but they leave piles of soda and beer cans, Styrofoam worm boxes and every other piece of trash they can find to throw down, absolutely disgusting. how can anybody be that worthless?

All the really good ideas I've ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.

Thanks for all the great ideas, I think we have a starting game plan. We have decided to put a t-post fencing around the entire property. The 3 lower strands of barbwire and top 3 strands of electric fencing, outfitted with a alarm siren if the line is cut.

We also decided on planting Japanese Silver fountain grass about every 6 feet on the perimeter of the fencing line. They grow dense and spread 6ft wide and 5ft height.

Purchased 11 wireless cameras that will record and send movement notifications to our cell phones. Finally 2 trail cameras placed in the entrance ways to capture license plate information. Placed a call to the local game warden to make them aware of the situation.

Anything else I should look into?

Well, I sure am impressed! Fortunately my place is not visible from any road so I haven't had your issues, but if I did your game plan sounds like it would work. Thought of planting bamboo if necessary, but it spreads like crazy.
