I posted this @ BloodyDecks too: Hey Gang, I'm not really against someone sitting in my stand. My name & # are on it (which the ranger was happy about. She said that's the rule) It is in a public national forest and after all it's been there since last year but besides six other locks I have keeping the stand to the tree and the ladder steps to each other and to the stand, I had a lock (bike style from Sp. Guide) keeping my shooting rail down to the stand. Some asshat actually cut it and took it which is funny because anyone could have sat in the stand without cutting and stealing the lock. Not to drag this out but the ranger I talked to said they are guilty of vandalism and theft which is more than I thought. I showed her the trail cam pics of the guy and she plans to look out for the him. (I won't post them yet since I don't think it's THAT big of a deal) I told her I don't care that much but I just thought is was loserish that they made the effort to bring bolt cutters to cut my lock and sit there but they can't even make the effort to buy their own stand and put it somewhere (I THINK I PAID $100 for mine?) Guess losers will be losers. Anyway, I hope y'all have a great season and double-check your tree stands. Some inexperienced, not a real hunter, asshat may be cutting/stealin your property. It's been a bit hot and big moon for deer but I feel it coming in a couple of weeks.
