Hunting Club Illegally Posts on Private Land

By Gail D’Alessandro

Here is a  photo of a tree stand that is right alongside my property line in upstate NY.  It belongs to a hunting club on my eastern property line.

As you can see, my surveyor tied a pink ribbon around the tree and the club put their orange posted sign a few feet into our property (my yellow posted sign is on the other side of the same tree)!! Their tree stand is about five trees to the left side of my pink ribbon. They have 60 acres of their own but it’s mostly wooded, so fewer deer, whereas my property is mostly open fields because it was a former dairy farm. I worry about a very special deer named “Socks.” Notice the stripes on her feet!
