Property rights issues


To The Editor:
I purchased my property about 15 years age for my family’s enjoyment and not anyone else’s.
I encountered hunters trespassing on my property so, the following year, I had my property surveyed.  Since then, posted signs and surveying pins have been removed, and a tree stand was built on my property without permission. I continuously find cigarette butts and litter on my property and over the years, deer carcasses were discarded in my driveway.

Trees on my property were marked for logging without my permission. I had my pond stocked with fish and all my fish were stolen.

Why do people feel they are entitled to use and abuse my property without my permission, while I’m the one paying the taxes?
Is it me or does anyone else have these issues?
