I had a neighbor do that to me. Even worse. His side was so thick he could only be hunting my side. On the edge of his land but facing mine.

You'd know what to say if it was on the opposite side of the pole!

Trespassing deals only with land, not dead trees. Now, the electric company has every right to take it down, and should.

Could it be any possibility that a person would put the stand facing away from where he would think the deer would come from? Maybe using the pole for some cover between him and the approaching deer?
How do we know a person is trespassing? All we see is a stand on a pole and a fence line that may or may not be a property boundary.

Itís the property boundary, the pole is on their side of the fence. One other cool fact, we can see this pole from the front porch of our camp house.

So as long as heís not shooting over the fence... I know those situations can be aggravating, but is he really breaking a law? You say the pole is on their side

Well then maybe it is a surveillance set up and they are working for one of the lease member's spouse to see if they really are at deer camp when they say they are

Like I said above, Iím assuming itís not legal to climb a utility pole that you do not own. But obviously Iím not a lawyer nor a police officer....nor do I care if itís legal or not. Iím simply amazed at the total disregard for safety and lack of cover. I was raised differently....Iíll just leave it at that.

Its the power company's property for whatever dumbarse lacks the common sense to know that. And B, its common courtesy to not hunt fence lines in TX, established over the last couple decades. If you are unaware of #1 or disagree with the established precedent of #2, hike up your skinny jeans and go vote for Sleepy Joe Nov 3rd.

Depends on the Power Companies line extension policy. The policy can be structured in numerous ways. It can also be changed. In today's world, it is more commonplace for the power company to charge the landowner a per foot charge for delivering power to a meter. This does not mean that the landowner owns the power line. It simply is a charge to cover the cost of labor and materials to get said powerline built to the meter. Once the line is in place the power company owns the asset and is responsible for the cost of service concerning the maintenance and reliability of the line. The power company should also have an easement on the line which gives them the right to ingress and egress.

Most of rural Texas is served by Electric Cooperatives. The Coops are owned and governed by it's memebers. There are still a few Coops in Texas where a new member line extension does not cost the member any out of pocket money up front (usually up to a certain footage). It is however not free. The cost of the new line is spread out across the entire membership in KWH rates.

Hope this helps.

The funniest thing to me is all of the cactus at the bottom. It would suck to fall.. as far as climbing a pole, who cares? Itís been done many times. Not all poles belong to a power company. I got my own business to worry about on my side of the fence to worry with someone else. It is a comical setup however

A wise man told me 35 years ago that "it doesn't matter if a group is hunting 50 acres or 5000 acres, somebody is going to hunt the fenceline". And, from what I seen, it's true in a lot of cases.

I figured the folks telling other folks how to use 100% of their property area would be the ones voting for Sleepy Joe.

Agree. You do you inside your fence. Iíll do me inside of mine.

I hung a security light on a co-op power pole on my place....am I a thief or a poacher?

It seems everyone has 200Ē giants on their place and donít want those fence hunters to be tempted to something illegal

Seems to me that if Iím hunting the fence in the wide open Iím likely to get busted and that 200Ē deer is going back where he came from and not jumping the fence. Iíd think a whiney landowner would appreciate that

Gotta be something. We have a neighbor on a timber company lease that has his feeder about 25 yards from the fence. You can drive down the road on our side and see it easily through the fence brush. Thereís a heavily used path going from our place to the feeder (mostly by hogs I think) but i think the next time Iím down there Iíll get my climber on a tree and see whatís coming through. I mean is it ok to fence hunt a fence hunter?

you know, I don't care if a hunter on another property hunts the fenceline, as long as he stays on his side and don't shoot into mine. Some people get butt hurt by it but not me.

Maybe he hung it there to irritate his neighbors and has no plans on hunting it.
Not sure about Texas but my properties in Colorado, the power poles on my land were owned by me and were my responsibility. I used to hang stands from one of them to practice from.

I second the question previously asked about the minimum distance from a fenceline... The place I'm on already had 4 feeders set up, two of which I would consider "on the fenceline" There really isn't anywhere else on the lease to put them due to the size and tree density of the place. The shooting lanes are safe... The feeders are 10 and 17 yards from the fenceline, the blind is 13 yds from the fenceline, and we have no equipment to move it.

The group there previously put it there and they were on the lease a number of years (they were from Arkansas so that explains some of it )...but it would be nice to know if we ever met the neighbors, I could have an expectation of what may come up.
