Welcome to the country.

any idea's short of carrying a fire arm and shooting at them?

Hope you are kidding with this one. I would have a talk with the local law enforcement and get some ideas from them.

Fencing and signs do work. Signs alone are not much of a deterrent. Fencing is expensive. A quarter mile of 5 wire fence will use 5 rolls of barbed wire and 132 T-posts plus corner sets and a mid point which is around $375 for the wire and $600 for the T-posts. Depending on how the corners and mids are made and how many you need, they will run $200 to $600 each. (These are wood or heavy steel pipe)

Woven cattle fence is more expensive. The 4 rolls of fence would be around $800 for a quarter mile. Normally, it is topped with 1 or two pieces of barbed wire at $75 each for the quarter mile. T-posts, corners and mid points would be the same as the 5 wire.

You will need one or more openings so a 12 to 16 foot gate will run $90 to $120 plus 2 posts(6x6 8 feet long treated) and a chain and lock.

If you hire this out, the price will probably double.
