The guy certainly has the right to tell you that you can't cross that 5' if it is his land even though he may be a jackass and it's only 5'. IMHO that's just as bad as the corner crossing issue if you don't know where the corner pin is and cross anyway. That's why I wouldn't do it if there wasn't a visible pin, but that's just me and others might not agree. He has no right to do anything else like stealing if he is, but he sure has the right to even file a complaint for trespassing across that private property. If you can access the BLM legally by kayak, then IMHO you should do that and if he does anything illegal that you just think right now that he's been doing and can be documented in the future, then file a complaint against him.As to post my post #113. The guy is just doing everything he can to keep people off by intimidating them. I can access that land just as easily by Kayak and he knows that. But not everyone has a boat or realizes this. So the landowner guy will intimidate everyone he can hoping they stay away. And when people dont stay away he resorts to stealing treestands and trail cameras to further intimidate. And if that doesnt work like with me he just sucks it up cause he has no leg to stand on legally. Its not worth chasing down any charges on the guy like say harassment or something like that. The slap on the wrist wont stop him. The best thing guys that hunt down there can do is stand there ground and ignore the ornery farmer. And lock your stands and cameras to trees if you feel you have to.
