learned a long time ago, if you value it dont leave it. I replaced my 5 year old stand that was stolen twice (first time it was relocated by a theif... less than 50 yards away) with a climber! only down side is I have to pack lighter. I wish people had morales that I was raised with, especially when it comes to hunting. Had some scum a few years ago eyeballing the inside of our truck. I took their photo first before asking them if they needed help. Which resulted in a spooked and departing dirtbag.

I wonder if F&W ever does anti theft operations... Probably too busy with everything else they have to do.

Haha.... you wanna steal my all steel doublewide ladder stands i will get some popcorn and watch cause your gonna earn it
That gave me a laugh. That's my attitude as well. It's such an efffort to get those suckers hauled into the woods and I chain mine up like fort knox with like 6 ratchet straps. I've never had any of those guys stolen.

Dont matter any more. Someone Just took one of my trail cam and it was in a lock boxs with a cable around the tree. They must have seen it before and brought back bolt cutters. [wallmad]

Got to think its almost gotten to the point where when people have their stands stolen, they almost are more incline to screw someone else in return. I wouldn't but it seems to happen so often that I can see how it would make someone question their own moral code when they stumble on someone else's stuff.

this was on public land in zone 27, simply trying to give people a heads up thats all. It was locked they cut it with bolt cutters, and i take the stand down every winter but its been put up in the same spot for five years now, last time i checked the WMA didnt have a cleaning crew to discard trash
