illegal?
Not to be rude but i have had this issue personally at my own home here IN louisiana and i was told by multiple sheriff officers after repeated calls, that if the animal DOES NOT have a collar and the owner does not contain them after being warned. That it up to the landowners descretion what happens to them. Luckily for them, each time it happened to us, the owners picked up their animals, but it IS NOT illegal to *remove for lack of more grotesk words* NON-COLLARD animals from your property.

It is probably not the most human solution to the problem but honestly after having several dogs stolen or killed on my own property...i don't really care about the humanity of it.

Louisiana Cruelty to Animals Law
Several of the things suggested in the comments may fall under this law and could be illegal. You certainly have the right to take whatever actions you deem necessary and take responsibility for.

Chris you are correct about the joke I made about the Poison. It is illegal and I apologize.

Bone Collector if you want a fully legal way to shoot your neighbors dogs, then simply get a dog of your own and wait until your neighbors dogs attack it on your property. If you lived in Alabama, it is legal to shoot a dog or cat for urinating or defecating on your property.

Leash law
If they have a leash law and they are your property then you have the right to take whatever means necessary to protect yourself. A growling dog (other than mine) on my property is a dead dog. No questions asked. I will not take a chance with my child playing on my property

Same
i have somewhat of the same problem on my property , the neighbors dog comes over pisses all over every car and boat in the yard then comes on the porch and does the same to everything on the porch , i have to keep my female dog caged because her dog has got mine knocked up once already , i have asked her many times to control her dog and she does nothing about it , the dog pound is a worthless use of tax payer money they also will do nothing because we live out side of the city limits even though they are a parish pound.

id like to find a way to put a shock wire on my tires after a little jolt that might keep him from coming back

problem
Move or buy him out.
One thing that will never change is you should never buy your recreational property next to someone's long-time residential property unless you already know them well.
Odds are that this guy grew up hunting on this land years ago, and thinks that because so he should still have use of the land.
He probably only owns 3 acres but thinks he is living on a hundred.
