My ex-neighbor was an ice dealer; I figured he would tell all his clients...and he must have, cause no one ever came down the road past his place.....
Letting everyone think you're crazy enough to just shoot them and worry about jail later avoids the necessity of actually doing so.
I found this recommendation on line that I really like, but am clueless as to whether or not it would work: http://www.landrights.com/trespassing_intro.htm
I like the idea of game cameras.. a lot. But they aren't in the budget right now.
I was told the deputies (yup, all two of them for the entire county) were enroute.
In Washington, people steal the honey!
A note about warnings on signs.
There was a case in our area where someone had a 'Beware of Dog' sign, then the dog bit someone.
The owner was successfully sued because the sign indicated that the owner was aware of the hazard: their dangerous dog.
The dog had never bitten before, but the sign indicated that there was a known hazard, so there was much more to gain by suing due to the sign.
Officials in the news article suggested removing such signs.
It is fun to read some of these, but better to find out what will legally protect the property owner, especially if someone hurts themselves in some way while trespassing.
We don't have time to be charming! Quick, read this tiny ad:
