Whoa there chief, pretty sure he said they look like guys who MAY work for a company who MAY own the land (if applicable). He covered his bases. Deep breath.

Not private timber land, guessing they were scouting for modern deer...or muzzy.....which leads to this next video.

Opening day of muzzy this dude shows up and it is somewhat unclear what he is doing. After pulling the cam because of the previous guys discovering the location, I went back in to see what this guy was up to. Not sure why he was crouched near the mineral block, but he then hung some kind of scent strip in the tree.



Dude, very lame to attempt to take advantage of another's set up IMO.

Well, hopefully I show up soon.  Walked in front of a cam on Saturday and gave the guy the deuces.  Nice spot dude, been setting up a stand there for years (within 100 yds) but you beat me fair and square.  Hopefully a bear doesn't destroy your camera since you didn't have a bear box, I've had it happen.

Well, I may get my chance at fame, ran across one in the 346 twice.  The first time I walked right by and didn't notice it until returning.

I went to pull my cams in this area for the year. Got to a cam above this one to find the lock had been shot off, cam smashed and the card taken out. Well this fine up standing old fart neglected to realize that the smashed cam has internal memory when the card was removed. So I got his picture on cam same date and clothing he wore. I now know what he looks like so we will have our day.

Sounds like pretty solid evidence against this *censored* bag! Would love to see an idiot like this get hunting privileges taken away or some repercussion for his actions. Any attempt to contact game department or authorizes yet?

Not yet I have a few feelers out there to see if people recognize him. Giving him a chance to own up to it first and make things right before I go down that road.

Was he bear hunting? No orange and carrying a rifle

Why would he wave at one camera then destroy another knowing full well he is on the other camera?  Are people really that stupid, you take both cameras dude!

Well my guess is he was he was deer hunting since the day he did this was the last day of deer season on the East Side. Probably just chose not to wear hunter orange. He didn't actually wave at this camera he didn't even directly look at it plus the one that too this picture was a little more concealed.

Dang, still no glory for me.  I was going to moon the cam but then decided not to in case it happened to be a female hunter or a kid.  Shooting the lock and taking the card didn't come to mind, I would turn him in the second I figured out who it was.  Hopefully you took some cell phone pictures of the damage for evidence.  There are probably finger prints on it as well.

Looks like he's looking at the stolen SD card.

Need to start another thread with this guys picture.  It'll get buried here.

Another thing you can do is show the pic to the game warden for that area to see if he happens to know the guy.  Many times the less than stellar characters are well known.

I was going to say, show it to WDFW enforcement. I wonder if they would/could cite him for no orange?

Not sure it could be proven that he is the person who destroyed your camera.
