Hey all, just wanted to drop a line on here in regards to a thief that roams Zone 18 and in this particular case Colliers Mills off Route 528 (West Veterans Highway).

He drives a White Ford Super Duty XL with the black front grill, not silver/chrome like the XLT, and cap on the back. It has a company logo and Brick, NJ on the side panel behind the front door. I only got a look at the driver side and it was brief as I was having a conversation with the guy before he actually attempted to steal my cam. He told me his name was Jerry amidst our 20 minute conversation. He's probably mid to late 40s or early 50s, full head of hair that is dark brown to black with some gray in it and a goatee at the time. I'd imagine he is about 5'10 and 185 to 200 lbs. During our conversation, he talked about the Monmouth and Ocean county areas and knowns them pretty well, so I'd imagine he frequents them often. He also told me he hunts the other side of Colliers Mills probably up near Prospertown Lake and Great Adventure and in Zone 17.

Bottom line, he tried to saw through a tree to steal my cam, but he spotted me coming in the woods from a different direction and quickly ran off. He has been reported to the authorities who are actively pursuing him.

If anyone happens to be in the area and spots the vehicle, please write down the license plate number and PM me or email at [email protected]

DO NOT CONFRONT HIM, just get the license plate so the authorities can pursue him.

Thanks all, and beware that he got away and nearly with my cam. I'm sure it isn't the first time he's done something like this and probably won't be the last.

Yeah DBuck, I had no clue it existed. I'm sure it has been mentioned on other boards in threads I've read, but I thought it was another NJ hunting site that has a not so clean/user-friendly forum format, although alot of good information. I would have been here some time ago if I knew it was different and like I said, the zone breakdown is great! :)

Glad to see you found your way here Matt. I think I know the other site your talking about, I'll be nice and not comment on it. Good luck finding the guy. I think posting it up is best, he may be afraid to show up there again.

If he hunt's (poaches) which he probably does he should lose his license. He's just an ordinary thief in book. Excuse me even worse. That's like stealing from a brother , he has to be an only child.[mad]
