Wheeled invaders, caltrops are good, (4-pronged tire-puncturing devices) strategically placed in the path, after the no trespassing signs have failed.

I would not recommend that...they would get hurt and they would sue you. Maine has a program that has a group of people act as mediators between disputes among neighbors and farmers. Next time I am going to call them, or just call the cops. It is pretty hard to figure out what the loss on lodged hay is, but once you put a fiscal figure on that, well they stand up and take notice.

--"act as mediators between disputes "--

What is there to--mediate--involving trespassing with a 4-wheeler ?
I can see the purpose of--mediating-- a fence line dispute between meighbors or similar situations where both parties feel they are in the right.

But please tell me what there is to --mediate--involving a 4-wheeler trespassing and damaging a crop?

Will they --mediate--a compromise that he can only ride his 4-wheeler in your hayfield on odd numbered days of the month ? ( sarc)

Sounds like your situation warrants law enforcement and not mediation.

I would definitely expect reimbursment for the loss of the crop! No one should be allowed to get by with that, or any other damage that they had willfully done to your property.
Whatever happened to being responsible for your actions!

We taught our son that if he deliberately got into trouble, he was going to take the consequences. We would not bail him out. And he did, a couple of times, and we stood by what we said.

This is one of my pet peeves. I fllipping can't stand ATVs. They inflict terrible damage to our trails system as well as damage to wooded areas.
As to any tresspassing? NO
I purposely made sure the property was nowhere near a trail system.
Snowmobiling is much more popular around here, and they mainly stay on the designated trails.

I don't want loose horses on my property. Now, if it is a neighbor riding in to visit, that is differant.

I understand. We only have woods surrounding our yard, so it would only be my flower beds that they had better stay out of! And that goes for the rest of their livestock.
