    How do you catch a THIEF?

    So my hunting partner called me today with some good and bad news. The good news he found a 1oz Kugarand in a draw with a 10 dollar gold piece. But then he told me his neighbor heard people digin our spot. Naturally this makes me HOT. Our spot is 40 acres of Confederate trench lines that are posted to the hilt. So how do you catch someone diggin on 40 acres? People like this dont care about the rule and generally don't give a sh*t about anything else. And I am worried that they might ruin the permission we have to hunt the surrounding property.My only thought is wildlife motion cameras. Anyone else have any ideas?

    too bad its not yer land ( booby traps are nice if it was -- fish hooks strung up calf high on 80 lb test clear fishing line - tends to give em the stay the hell out message. ) -- game cam's (well hidden) to prevent them being spotted and thus damaged or stolen by the scum would be a good ideal since its not yer land --give the images to the land owner to help bust the tresspassers with.

    its no fun when folks will not "respect" YOUR off limits / posted signs --sort of like when folks try to use "sneaky metal detecting sandels" under long pants to try to hunt posted " off limits spots"

    That's a bummer. Sorry to hear that. I have had problems with these hoppers in the past, and until you catch them on the spot, there is not much you can do.

    Re: How do you catch a THIEF?

    How often do you hunt it?Is it your property?Don't know till I ask!
    Ever wonder where your thoughts come from?

    Re: How do you catch a THIEF?

    oh its best to camo it up so that its to the side of a trail they use * do not use the flash option as it will give away the cameras location -- a pit fall type "ankle twister" pit is another non lethal favorite --a few foot deep pit say a foot wide and say 2 foot long by 2 foot deep -- covered criss cross pattern wize with thin tiny twigs and covered with leaf debris once stepped upon the foot goes in twisting the jerks ankle --

    if one wants to maim a bit but not kill --use the ankle twister pit with the following-- a chunk of two by four with big nails driven thru it--placed so the points face upward placed at the bottom of the hole --or soda / beer bottles neck down are shoved in the dirt and the bottles busted -- used the bottle one in the past myself once --ugly mess once they stepped in it sliced his foot to bits--and once you find out who got treated for getting their foot mangled at the local hospital you know who was tresspassing --they can not say squat about it because they would reveal their "tresspassing" crime by doing so --uh make sure yer land is very well "posted" )

    Yep game cams. Look for area where they might park at and set up cams. Might get lucky and get license plate?

    Re: How do you catch a THIEF?

    This is a big problem. Can you do a surveillance on the property?The game cameras are a good idea. Possibly the best is to see where they park their cars, ect... Write down license plate numbers, and catch them back at their vehicle. A citizens arrest can hold them until the law arrives. Carry a shotgun, it will surely intimidate and they will comply with your orders. Be careful, lawful, and good luck!

    Re: How do you catch a THIEF?

    I don't agree with the ankle breaking pits, however I would suggest hiring a local kid to keep a lookout for suspicious cars and trucks parked on or near the property.

    Think I'd use a passive / aggressive approach.... and not do anything that would result in physically harming these fine upstanding individuals...

    A removed valve stem insert(s) or a punctured tire(s) might get the message across...

    Or wait until they return to their car / truck, then call the local sheriff and have him explain the benefits of respecting posted property...

    Now in the event you can catch these fine folks on the property with MD gear in-hand...simply approach with a shotgun and relieve them of their equipment and make a citizens arrest...

    Or better yet, take their equipment, shoes, pants and shirts and let them hike home...(gotta remember to keep the car keys, as well)

    Be smart and let the law take precedence.

    As a former Army Ranger I have a hard time believing what you are saying.You have got to be crazy to give this person these ideas.I have seen many booby traps,both in combat situations and in training andf I feel you are an idiot for suggestions like this,you want to see someone get killed,and if you deny it you are a liar.From what you are telling these people to do will lead to a bad result and you know this so you sir are as much to blame for what happens as the people who are trying to recover history
