That is going to be part of reinforcing the fence lines or places where it can be breached, I have some cut offs of poles, large ones, length and diameter western cedar, I had hoped not to have to use them like that, it seems they go for the weakest area. Things like this are hard to move and get around.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but placing logs or trees is not foolproof. If they want in bad enough they will make a gap someplace. Especially if their ATV activity is tied to the drug trade.

Yes, its like someone wanting to steal your car, if they want it, likely it will happen.

More or less a more substantial deterrent, anyone could pack tools, a saw or what have you to get in, there is no doubt about that.

I find the riders whom appear to be "smoked up", seem to just be out enjoying a ride, you can either smell it or see their bloodshot eyes. I don't think anyone would be foolish enough to sneak in and grow anything of significance either, would be too much work to get anything out of it. People do try on a small scale, as I have seen in years past I have found amateur attempts, 1 small plot, even found some plants in the middle of a large field behind us a long time ago, while walking along just happened to look down, couple of transplants of some afghan variety according what I was able to look up, brush hog got those anyway, they would not have amounted to much.

North of us, and that would be a concern like you said, they reported taking 6000 plants. In that case you don't want to run into those folks by mistake, as they would likely be armed and dangerous protecting their interests, anything is possible here, but I think there is too much aviation traffic nearby, someone would see anything of any size, but up there its rural and a lot more places to hide. That's a job for the law to deal with for sure !

Yeah, we're also in a "busy" area which would deter an impromptu drug operation. But you are right in that there are certain areas where it takes place and would be bad for someone to stumble across it given the nature of the people involved.

Thats certainly something I would be highly cautious of, I still can't believe they found that huge grow, within 15, maybe 20 miles of here, orginally said it was 4000 plants, then said 6000 plants. Its hard to prosecute, as its highly unlikely you'll catch them unless there is stake out. The thing that got me was the size and knowing like any plant, crop what have you, you have to take care of them to insure they'll produce, and this plant is no exception, thats not a one man operation and I can't imagine how many people it takes and what kind of people are doing this, someone hard on their luck, trying to "moonshine" or a dangerous criminal element determined to succeed, meaning I do not want to meet you by accident in the woods LOL !
