trespassers on my land
OK, me again. I searched the forums and this was as close as I could get to this problem. I own a 12 acre parcel of land next to thousands of acres of state land. There are soooo many *#@* snowmobilers on my land. It is posted, and not one of them has EVER, EVER asked permission, or introduced themselves to us since we moved in. We checked and there is NO right of way through our land. We have called the police who say "By the time we get there they will be gone" which they are, but then come back. This is a disaster waiting to happen. There are tree seedlings, streams and ruts on the land that make walking hazardous, let alone snowmobiling over the top of these things hidden under the snow. We put chains up across the access points; they go around them. We parked cars across the accesses; they go around. We put signs and objects in the trail; they run over them or move them. The only time they do not trespass is if we are standing there watching them, so obviously they know they are not welcome. I emailed the local snowmobile club and they never replied. I contacted the State Park people and they said there's nothing they can do about private land concerns. They have the right to go along the edge of the road but NOT in my yard. But they do, they go about 6 inches from the cars and disrupt my rabbits who live in the barn, they whoop and holler when they do it like they are King Kong or something. Not only that but I think these guys are drinking because I see snowmobiles parked at the bar down the road. It is a very rural area, and I might not mind if they ever ONCE asked permission!! I have always lived in the sticks but this is ridiculous! Didn't their parents teach them to respect others?? Just venting but any suggestions would help--serious or not!
