Scouting camera season has definitely arrived. So, here’s a zinger: What if you replaced your SD card and raced home only to discover that among the deer visiting your food plot was a trespasser?
I’m not talking about a raccoon trespasser, I mean a human trespasser. Don’t call the sheriff yet. What if that trespasser was a good friend who owned the neighboring acreage? Or, what if it was your buddy who hunted on the property next door?
This happened to a friend of mine a couple of seasons back. We were setting up a new treestand overlooking a food plot in Kansas. He pulled the memory card, and later that night we were clicking through the images when suddenly a human appeared. My buddy quickly realized the person in the image was a neighbor. The dude's in-your-face mug shot was unmistakable. My friend didn’t get along with that particular person, so his course of action was as direct as a nonstop flight to New York. There might even have been a cop-shop mug shot involved when it was all said and done.
How would you handle that situation? Would you let it pass as a one-time mistake? Would you confront the person and jeopardize future relations? Would you contact law enforcement immediately to press trespassing charges?
