    Because of where the camera was placed, it also makes me suspect of someone; that is, someone who knows our place and was out roaming when he shouldn't have been. So, he sees the camera and realizes that his picture would be on the camera already so just took it so as to destroy the evidence. rdust is right, it isn't like our place is on the beaten track so no doubt it was someone local.

    That sucks bad, sorry.
    Nothing worse than being ripped off.
    It's not even the item so much for me, it's the thought of being stolen from.
    I live in a small town 10K people. My coworkers always give me a hard time cause i lock up my
    tool boxes on my work truck every night. There is $1000.00 worth of tools in there. Just takes one dirt bag.
    I recently added a vice to the back of my truck. $300.00. I welded a mount and drilled a hole with a padlock.
    I lived in Phoenix for 13 years and had my truck broken into several times, it's sad but don't trust many people anymore.

    So did you report the theft to the local law enforcement agency?

    Do you suppose it would do any good Jake? There were no tracks to be found and what evidence would you look for? No, just have to realize we're out a hundred bucks. Cripes, I've given needy folks more than that but having it stole from you is different.

    A reward of some firewood for anyone who turns the low life in, get the word out, it's worth a try.

    A few years back a friend saw a man going back in on our property (he was 100% sure it was this guy) so I called (no answer) but left a message explaining that the land was posted and it was for personal/family use only, the next day she called me,up oneside of me down the other then hung up.

    Never realized owning land entilted you to a good ole ass chewing from a TRESPASSER'S wife!

    Dennis I would definitely report it to the local police and to any DCR officers. They may stop the scum bag for something else and see your camera in the truck or they may be walking in the woods to check hunting licenses and find one. Most officers are regular people and hate the violators as much as you. Nothing to lose. And it gets the word out that you are serious. Be safe.

    Ironically The murdered guy was supposed to have protection provided by the local DA. Makes you wonder. Probably got the idea from Guido and his boys when they ran out of cement.

    Lot to be said for engraving your drivers license number onto the camera. If the thief just pitched it in the woods, someone may find it but more likely they will take it home and at some point may get caught with it.

    Sure is a shame backwoods. Being young i can only hear the stories of long ago when permission came with a handshake and also respect from both parties.
    Hope your still able to tag a nice one this year.

    My thinking as well . . . oftentimes these dirtbags get busted sooner or later . . . it never hurts to have the report on file in case law enforcement (police, sherriff, game wardens, etc.) end up busting the guy and find the game camera . . . only takes a few minutes of your time.

    Too right it's different.

    One is you being a good guy, the other is someone nearby being a bad guy.

    But not worth losing any sleep over, because the moment you change your life, you let them win..... ;-)

    Right. I'll replace the camera but still dream of catching the thief.

    Put a label on the next one: "Smile! You are on camera (and I'm not talking about this one)"

    Ya, I've seen that one suggested in the past. Might drive them nuts trying to find the other camera. :lol:

    Most people are good, probably more than you realize. It's just that the minority of @holes are so profoundly exceptional at their craft. I shun them and deal with the good people, although none are my next door neighbor. My condolences to you. Replying to some later posts, the vast majority of hunters are responsible, respectful people. Except the one's on "Alaska State Troopers".

    i would suggest getting 2 new cameras...one to take pics of deer, the other to take pics of the camera taking pics of deer....no one ever expects the unexpected.

    Nothing like reinventing the wheel. Is there no imagination among murderers!

    I read that same new fiction novel about that wood chipper stuff that Craig did not long ago and for the life of me I can't remember the name of it. It was how the bad guys got rid of people. Delivered them to a guy in a shack with a chipper and they went away.

    Equipment maintenance has to be a mess.

    I think if you just throw a bunch, a big bunch, of green branches through the chipper it would clean up OK.
