Good! Now if someone will just steal their guns, the animals will be safer.

Perhaps if bambi had opposable thumbs, they would have more of sporting chance. But thanks to that little advantage, the human species has developed the fine motor skills necessary to wield a weapon and put food on the table.

I hope they catch the slob and he gets what's coming to him. While I know that there are those that are not in favor of hunting, and I agree that it's fine for you to have that opinion, some of us do these things for relaxation. And for someone to blatantly steal these items, well one day they will answer for their crimes. To the guy that had the items stolen, place an out of sight camera that shows your equipment, then you'll get pictures of the thief!! Buck Rogers, I'm looking for you!!:)

What do you mean you don't feel sorry for that person? If people would only STAY on their own ground and not trespass he wouldn't have to post his ground. We have the same problem, only it is with four wheelers. Don't buy one if you don't have the ground to ride it. Stay off private ground.

Just because it's posted doesn't mean the owner won't share if you go and ask permission respectfully. My uncle posts his land, but lets just about anyone who asks hunt there. All he wants is to know WHO is on his land, and to ask them to be careful they don't shoot in the direction of his livestock. Is that REALLY so unreasonable?

I have 58 acres of mountain ground and I have it posted. Why you ask, people would come on the ground a cut trees down for firewood (by the way if they would have asked I would have let them), a bunch of teenagers rode four wheelers on the property one of them had an accident and his parents had the nerve to try to sue us and lets not forget about people think they should dump their trash out there. My husband and I work hard to pay for our property and pay the taxes, but yet people want to complain that we post it too bad we have had too many problems not to post it. By the way we do hunt and allow many of our friends to come hunt as well. If somebody came to the door and asked permission to hunt on our ground I have not problem with that and would thank them for asking. When ground is posted STAY OFF or ask permission first.

Awwwww..... What's the matter; can't you poach any deer for free? Too bad. Spend some money and buy your own ground, spend some money to join a hunting club that has ground, or hunt on state game land, but STAY OFF of posted ground. And we don't want to hear your whining because you can't find Bambi.

just some advice,we had the same problem on our farm. they run through the fields (planted) with no respect. we solved it.where they were coming in and out of the fields at night,we burried 2x4's in the ground with 4"spikes.after enough flat tires,they stopped coming in.we would move them around so they never knew where they were.

VERY true. My neighbor bought a farm, but the previous owners just kept hunting on it without asking permission, and they got mad when she ran them off the farm. She told them it would have been OK if they had asked, but since they didn't they couldn't hunt there. Then she had to run them off the farm a 2nd time the same day because they were stupid and went back. After the 2nd time, they went to another farm to hunt without permission, and got mad because they were run off of THAT farm, too. They had to ride the 4-wheelers over our ground to get to the farm, and couldn't understand why we asked them to stop that, too.

I had several tree stands set out on my farm. Someone came in on the creek in a canoe and stole one. It had a chain lock...they just cut it off.

I sure would like to catch them!

You know what would solve this all? It is for people to be respectful of other peoples things!! I think there is to much priviatly owned land in the mountains these days but thats there right. But i fish through a stream that runs right through peoples land there are treestands everywhere but i dont go on there land and i dont litter or mess with there hunting stuff, that is just common courtesy. And by now most of them know me so they really dont care.
Thank You

As the owner of mountain land with a stream through it, I appreciate your attitude, and would allow you to hunt my ground. Unfortunately, my ground isn't as fruitful as the ground surrounding mine. But we do alright.
lets do it

you will never get respect out of every hunter, there are always those who think everyone owes them something. it doesn't matter if it's a tree stand or a camera or just the right to do what they want when they want on your property. it's a real shame it has come to this.they had to know they were there in order to take them.some one either opened there mouth, or else they were in snooping. regaurdless. that's where they would have found them. officer, i don't know what happened. i was walking in to my stand and tripped over this perfectlly well preserved hunter lying here. i wonder how he got here, better yet, i wonder what he was after?gee golly officer, i've never seen him before, how about you beaver?
