    @Ryan_Songhurst can you lock the gates once there in then call the boys in blue, pretty frowned on these days getting caught paching on farm land

    Very Unlike. There are some real oxygen thieves around unfortunately.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    @Ryan_Songhurst I had a mate who used to manage a farm with a very similar access road. It nearly drove him nuts, up at night chasing people etc. Some would argue the point they are just using a legal road, so he would just follow along behind them where ever they went at about 25m distance and they eventually get pissed off and leave.

    One of these lots of guys was on the farm itself, and another lot were spotlighting onto and shooting on the farm from the river bed (which they off course denied) but the farm is terraced and I was standing up above them watching them the whole time before I went and confronted them, it's shit like this that makes you want to just put a gate in and be done with it

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeah, same shit as this farm had stock grazing on both sides of the road without roadside fences, just boundary fence against river frontage, so essentially the road was through a large open paddock. My mate used to give the rego numbers to the local cop (Darfield) That soon slowed down a few.

    best thing is an old set of harrows in the long grass points up of course and just have a old rag or a piece of tape hanging on the fence to remind all that work on the farm where you have left them

    berg that is pure brilliance....... and dont forget the 44gal drum over first bank with set of reflector eyes so they shoot it and scare rest away and you know they are about.....
    was up your way last week and drove past road you are on...wouldnt friggin dream of going down the likes of that for a sneaky look myself...when you put that big steel gate in just make sure the hot wire runs across back of gate dog...... add in a tricky latch and the first larakin will sit on his arse and the others wont be able to help as will be laughing too much.

    If you let the boys in blue know that you were working late in je paddock and had shots fired in your direction I'm sure you would get a response.... That said sounds like your local man will help out

    Putting a gate over a public road is a dick move(this is a public road right or have I got the wrong end?)
    However you have a right to protect yourself and property and this is best done by using the police as that is what we pay them for and it removes you from confrontations in the middle of the night with people who are armed and possibly high or drunk or both.
