This is to the low life SOB who took my lock-on portable tree stand sometime last week? I know you wont be reading this because you can't read and sure hell couldn't use a computer. I am sorry, I just needed to vent. I went so say good by last Thursday to a friend and fellow bow hunter who passed away on Sept. 27 he was only 52 years old and was taken away from us a little too soon, he was planning on bow hunting this season with his 16 old son...
I went my tree on Saturday morning Oct 2nd and and my stand was gone. So that just added to my bad week "the loss of a good friend". I am hunting in Jackson Michigan on PUBLIC LAND which means your free to hunt where ever you darn well please. I scouted that area for over 3 weeks and saw no sign of any other hunters in that area. So please show others the same respect that you would like to be shown yourself and leave there stuff alone. We are sportsmen not hoods, I wont make that mistake again. In 15 years of bowhunting I never had to even lock my stand to the tree before. Since I hunting in a new area and about 20 miles away I locked it this time. I know it is someone who lives close, because they had to get a ladder and a hammer to break the lock. I use strap on steps and take them with me when I am done hunting my stand was about 15 feet off the ground. I am new to hunting here in Michigan and have meet some very nice folks. I hope I find the SOB while I am bow hunting and he is using my stand, casue he will get a 100 grain muzzy in @$$...
RIP Bobby Cry
I am hunting old mossy horns for ya and we miss you....

I no this isn't as bad as getting a tree stand stolen but I caught a guy hunting from my tree stand on a private hunting lease about 7 to 10 years ago. It absolutley blew my mind

I know exactly how you feel, my brother has been hunting the same spot for 5+ years with a stand, last year we decided to put one up for me as well, we stopped by after opening day of pheasant/quail and some jacka$$ thought it great to take both stands. Talk about pissed Evil! now we don't feel like we can put another stand up cause it will just get taken again, so we're forced to use other more challenging tactics to hunt the land. I have no respect for people who pull crap like this, man I would pay good money to catch them in the act.

Here's a new reality show for ya...follow around rangers catching poachers and thieves in the act, like cops. That would be my new favorite show...

I work with a guy who had his stand stolen from him a couple of years ago and i felt bad for him, but in the same breath he told that he came across one in the woods and stole one from somebody else! I let him have it for that. Two wrongs don't make a right.

here's another story to add to the list.
About 15yrs me and my buddy had permission to hunt a small 20 acre woods for white tail the first two years we hunted from the ground the third year we decided to put up tree stands man they were cool 8x8 with walls and a roof carpet. we went out there opening day 'bout 5 or so we had 8" of snow over night we get to where our stands were suposed to be but some clown ripped down our stands!! wondering what to do next the bastard that took them down shows up and asks what the hell we were doin in "his" woods? Your woods we have permission, what about you? he didn't have permission well to make a long story short a half hour later I shot " his" 8 point 230lb buck !!
