With some of the comments like that we are all just joking aren’t we ? LOLif you own the land get law enforce the involved.
if you lease the land get the land owners and law enforce the involved.
personally I’d never go out of my way to confront a person armed over a deer. Trespasser armed is a story that if prosecuted will cost them money. If you run into them on your own property is another story but I’d still get law enforce the involved.
either way it’s tough situation when people are a piece of property at night.
legally the law needs to be involved. legally that is....
if you were to do option 2!!!! I wouldnt be on a forum asking about option 2. Deniability.
