I have more than a few neighbors blinds/feeders set up within 100 yards of my fence lines.

They are not doing anything illegal, but I do think it’s bad bs.
Feeders on fence-lines cause beef and make bad neighbors.

In small tract areas I get it may be unavoidable, but you are asking for trouble if you are the guy setting up close to the neighbors fence.

Hunter harassment[/QUOTE]

That's works both ways.. A feeder placed on a boundary fence can and has been viewed as "hunter harassment".. That is exactly why we see these threads over and over and over.. They are on social media and every hunting forum I visit..

Its not rocket science folks.. Do it if you want to, because its "your right", but don't act surprised when the neighbor doesn't like it and makes it known..

The hunters on our north side 10 years ago thought it was cute to put up 3 feeders 5 yards from the fence line on a 1500 yard stretch of fence but the owner of that property, who refused to line out his hunters after friendly requests, went ballistic when my landowner high fenced the out.. Guess what, It was my land owners right Problem forever solved..

I’d take the high road and move the feeder. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t put a couple hundred pounds of corn down that fence line every weekend I’m there though......

It can be viewed as such and does happen..

Just take a hard look at the motive behind many of these responses on this thread.. Its clearly to harass..

Honestly, rather the up front honestly from the guy rather than posting it on social media. Would rather meet face to face to discuss like adults, but this sent the message. Is it right, no...but did he really do any harm?

I may not speak for all landowners, but if someone is trespassing on my land I better be notified ASAP. That way I can call the neighbor and we get the matter handled immediately. If I found out about it months later then ya I would be ticked off. Now all the petty stuff that happens around camp I don’t want to be bothered with.

I won’t set up close to a property line normally not because I feel it’s wrong but because I don’t want a shot deer to cross the fence. I want everything I shoot to stay on my property so I tend to back off the property line to give me a buffer for that.

If lease agreement says no closer than 100 feet of property line and said feeder is 60 ft move itanother 40 ft, put up no trespassing signs and put up camera. If neighbor trespasses and messes with your equipment call game warden and have him arrested.

Whoever left that note needs an arse whoopin and a visit from the local GW!

Move it closer or leave it where it’s at and set up multiple cams in the area.
Why? You’ve already broke leases agreement with landowner by having it that close to fence

This.....read what "Bullets" composed above....

Now, in my experience as both a member and the primary lessor I can tell you what I'd do. I'd move the feeder well off his fence. I'd personally go to the landowner and apologize for causing a problem and offer to go apologize to the neighbor landowner, which he'll probably not want you to do. Most likely he'll insist he'll handle it and you should let HIM "handle it."

Now, would I want to paint a big finger on the feeder and point it right at him....lol.....you bet. However, all that'll do (or any other silly immature action) is cause your landowner more problems with his neighbor. It'll also probably cost you your spot on the lease and more than likely the whole group the lease itself.

In my experience landowners tolerate lessee hunters for the money. With some it's like they want the money, but, don't want you around.....with some I'm sure it's exactly that....sure feels like that to the hunters anyway..... they're "tolerated." You should be the ramrod "go to" on a deal like that....hehehe.... no fun I'll tell you that.

So, in conclusion, you can pour fuel on a small lil' grass fire and turn it into a potential scorched earth for you, your fellow lessee's and, very possibly, the landowner him or herself. Or you can do the MATURE thing and do your best to diffuse the situation.

Given the choice between what I want to do and what I know is "right" I always TRY to do the right thing. It's quite often not easy as I know I'm correct or at least on equal footing. However, me swallowing my pride, using my intellect vs emotion, and experiencing a bit of short term pain for long term gain has almost always worked out for the best.

Same here.
Our neighbor uses our access road to get to a stand of his, which is about 50 yards into our property

This. The 100 yard rule keeps everyone happy. And ttaxidermy is right. This is what causes high fences. Not to keep deer in but to keep D~Baggery neighbors out.

Try 👀 gn from the other side of the fence. It is no fun being shot at. I know. Do not tresspess to resolve, but finding a feeder on the fence line you walk by to get to your stand and having blind shooting at such feeder and you makes it no fun.

I grew up old school. Out of common respect I was taught not to put feeders or stands right on a neighbors fence line. There are lots of things that are "legal" but does not make it the respectful thing to do.

On the other hand nobody has the right to trespass and take property. So IMO both sides were at fault. (as your LO I would not be happy that one of my lease hunters ignored a rule I had in place)

Communicating with neighbors before issues like this arise is the answer.

I really dont think more than 1 or 2% of HF are installed due to people hunting a fence line.
Those fences are tens of thousands or more dollars and more likely they are installed because someone with deep pockets would rather guarentee bigs bucks rather than hunt big bucks

Well we had this fence line problem on deer lease I was on. We pitched in high fenced 1 mile on that side of the property. Not all high fences encompass entire properties.

He messed up by crossing the fence and disconnecting your feeder.
If it's on this side of the fence and your'e not shooting into his property and the corn from the feeder isn't crossing the fence, it's none of his business.
If he really doesn't like it, he can put up a high fence so no one can steal "His" deer....

I can say, that this years lease agreement he specifically added that all feeders and blinds must be at least 100 feet away from property lines.

So if said hunter had moved the feeder after signing the latest lease agreement this probably would not be an issue.

I'm not looking to draw anyone offsides with the post. Just want level headed thoughts. Thank you

OK, I didn't see this and I take what I said back. Move the feeder 40 feet and be done with it.

We have several food plots that are next to fence lines, why ? Because it was the best place to put them, we also have a couple of stands along a fence line, same reason. The only problem I have with neighbors is when they place a feeder next to me and will be shooting towards or onto my property, that is dangerous, other than that all is good. Cannot believe they came onto your property and disconnected your feeder, that took some balls.

Maybe try to think like a rancher. In my experience, the ground and vegetation is affected by the presence of a feeder probably at least 60 feet in every direction due to the concentration of animals walking around trampling away all the grass, hogs rooting around, etc. At a bare minimum, I think a feeder should at least be far enough away from a fence to not affect the ground or vegetation along the fence because that could eventually affect the fence itself. I would always try to err on the side of courtesy.

Same here. Asking for trouble when you start putting ANYTHING close to fence lines, especially stands and feeders. Its like your just agging the neighbor on or daring him to say something. That is not conducive to working toward better relations with your neighbor.
I also see a lot of comments on here where some of you guys are saying to move the feeder closer to the fence ... why? just to prove something? Besides, the OP said there is a lease agreement of a 100' (that's feet, not yards!) rule of not placing things within that limit.

Don't call a Game Warden and don't blow it up.

Most likely that land owner knows your lease rules and knows feeders must be 100 feet from the fence, also that land owner is probably either family or friends with your land owner and crossing the fence is not a big deal to your land owner in this situation, because your hunter broke the rules (whether he knew it or not)

Don't create drama, move the feeder and be done.

Lease agreement is one thing to follow. Your land or no rule stating is another. Stands and feeders on a fence line is not asking for trouble. It’s simply using the land your paying for however the heck you want. If a neighbor wants to trespass, harass or cause trouble then the problem is on them. Don’t break the law shooting across the fence or slinging corn over.

My neighbor has a feeder 15 Feet from our north fence. He has a bow stand 20 yds further down the fence and a rifle blind 100 yds further down. It doesn’t bother me one bit. It suits his property the best for him to hunt.

Feeder 15’ in or 100’ in the same deer are being hunted. I “hunt” his feeder in a way. I may not shoot one on his side of the fence but I set up 50 yds inside my property line and catch the deer filtering from my place to his feeder location all the time when wind is right.

I also see a lot of comments on here where some of you guys are saying to move the feeder closer to the fence ... why? just to prove something? Besides, the OP said there is a lease agreement of a 100' (that's feet, not yards!) rule of not placing things within that limit.
X2, why landowners prefer not to lease property. Easy for hunters to lease a place and not consider the forever nature of the situation for the landowners. Lease members move on but the issues left behind stay with the landowners (neighbors) forever.

It’s legal. Go let the neighbor know you are not breaking the law and if necessary you can call the GW.

Don’t break the law shooting across the fence or slinging corn over.

My neighbor has a feeder 15 Feet from our north fence. He has a bow stand 20 yds further down the fence and a rifle blind 100 yds further down. It doesn’t bother me one bit. It suits his property the best for him to hunt.

Feeder 15’ in or 100’ in the same deer are being hunted. I “hunt” his feeder in a way. I may not shoot one on his side of the fence but I set up 50 yds inside my property line and catch the deer filtering from my place to his feeder location all the time when wind is right.
This is a solicitation for opinions thread. Antlers just stated mine.

A lot of you young people have lost all respect . From fishing to hunting . Just because it's legal doesn't make it right. No different than you fishing and catching fish and I come barreling azz in there and cutting you off. Respect you bunch of millennials.

Public water you don’t own it. Good point but still if I own the land I will do as I please and whatever suits the area I am setting up.

Really? Even if it gets you cross with your neighbors? Keep in mind the OP is a leasee, not a landowner

This thread just shows who you want to be on a lease with and who not to be.
