Yeah, I'm for harsh sentencing for thieves and the like. I'd be fine with stocks in the public square. These days they pay a fine and get counseling at the taxpayers expense! [Roll Eyes]

Sure it wasn't the wind? If it's not nailed down people will most likely steal it. If it is nailed down and they want it they will use tools to get it.

Well, i gotta say, I don't leave anything and am surprised when other people do. I might leave a treestand but it'll be locked with a cable. The ranch I'm turkey hunting currently has no one else on it. I still take everything back with me. If you felt safe, I guess you could've left your bow too.

It's a shame but it's what the world has come to.

I would hope that no true "hunter" would do that...it takes a low life blankity-blank to steal.....have had several tree stands and blinds taken....burns me to the core.....

Really sorry to hear about that. Most likely the person is not a hunter and was just looking for anything to pay for their next few days of meth.

Another sad experience, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. It seems like that type of behavior is getting to be all too common.

Have to agree with Bjorn. The market is alive with thieves that can make a living poaching on others. I live out in the sticks and still lock up tight when I leave.
6 years ago I left my residence just on the outskirts of town for an hour to have lunch with a old close friend. When I returned someone had broke in and stole 2 handguns that weren't locked up in the safe and 70% of my knife collection that I'd started collecting when I was a teen.
Two of the individuals were caught with 1 of the handguns in a drug related bust a couple months later.
The guy lived abot 1/4 mile away and they had been casing my place and habits.
I did get back a nice Ruger stainless 22 target pistol but the 9mm SS Beretta 92 and none of the knives were ever recovered.
The court did send them on a expense paid 2 year vacation but did not require that they pay restitution.
These guys were actually holding merchandise in there rented house and garage until they had enough of a load to rent a truck and pawn it off out of state 100's of miles away.
Justice may have been done but the agrieved were not reciprocated.
Hope they get run over by a Mack truck.

Nothing. That is what a hunter would steal. A thief will take anything he can. Good luck with your turkeys and Good Hunting!

Since all the other stuff was still there is there any chance it could have blown away? I've had that happen and found it in a fence quite aways away. Ben

I lost a blind and a tree stand. I hate loosing them both but I really hated it for Jefferson who I had loaned the tree stand to. It was stolen off of his own property which adjoins public land.

I'm sorry for your loss.

God bless,Mudd
