Justice Deborah Austin said the man's reaction the visitors, who said they were there to ask permission to hunt on the land, was dangerous.
The elderly man ordered them to leave with his loaded .303 British Enfield rifle in his hand before the hunters could even speak, they said.
"It (the rifle) was pointed at us," one of the hunters testified. "I was ready to die,"
The 80-year-old man said he never pointed the gun, and his daughter testified the rifle never left his shoulder. But he did admit to disliking hunters on his land.
"I don't like hunters ... I blew my stack," the 80-year-old told court.
The elderly man will not be named because he was otherwise granted a discharge.
