SD card Stealing Dirtbags!
« on: May 05, 2022, 11:32:52 AM »
Man I'm trying to avoid these SD card stealing basterds this year.
Messed up thing about last year is none of my SD cards got stolen until September when deer seasons started.
Had one stolen durring archery deer.
And one stolen durring muzzy deer.
Trying to avoid it this year.
I've bought about 80 dollars worth of those cable locks,
Plus made lock boxes for known SD thief spots

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I know my welds suck,I'm not a welder by trade that's for sure.
Made two by cutting an ammo can in half.
Made one from scratch.

Man I'm hoping to avoid these guys this year.
But a few spots are spots I use every year.
I just can't give in to these SD card Stealing basterds.

And the black one is already been out in the woods for almost a month.
But the ammo can ones I just made.

These should deter them. Sucks that it has come to this. Unfortunately there are dirtbags everywhere.

Cables won't stop the dirtbags, you need those heavy steel boxes and multiple 9/16'' min lag bolts to a tree.  They suck to pack in but they have to cut the tree down to steal your crap, and hopefully it takes them so long you catch them in the process!!!

I could lag bolt them through the metal I welded on there .
It's like 3/8 I think.
The cables are for all the ones that don't have boxes.
I try to put them higher up with tree stand steps.
But it's a task getting me to climb a tree.
Most of my cams are just out of reach if your 6ft tall and reaching up. With a cable now.

You guys think its ok to drive lag bolts into trees that you don't own?
He's not trolling you - he's mocking you

Did you ever notice that the biggest critics of formal education have little of it?

Cloaking ignorance and bigotry in an elementary school understanding of scripture doesn't change the fact that it's ignorance and bigotry.

yup, I don’t leave them in the tree, and I’m in the wilderness, those trees aren’t being processed.

I stopped using lock/bear boxes, they don't deter, they're more work and heavy.  I've had 4 cut from the back with a battery Sawzall most likely, probably didn't even take the dirtbags 60 seconds.  I now put cams about 12 up in the trees, no problems period.  Not one person has even looked up at them when they walk by, only have had 1 bear make eye contact with one, and he let it be.

I have used the same tree for many years. You can't hardly tell I was there.

I accept that risk, totally different feeling than knowing a dirtbag has my stuff!  All though it could end in the same actual result of no cam/sd card, chit happens.....

For a starter there ,you screw lag bolts ,not really drive them.
Who says I don't own these trees.
Some things are better left unsaid here and on HW.
