Default STOLEN STANDS...IDEAS????

Hey guys I would like to hearsome creative ideas on how to keep thieves off my property. I recently had 5 locked ladder stands stolen, and its a damn good thing I didn't see them doing it. They would have been mistaken for coyotes.[:@]

NOOOO they will steal them to... How much property do you own? how far are the stands from your house?

I've thought about putting cameras but these guys would probably steal them too...

Take the bottom section of ladder with you so they cant climb up to cut chain.

I too have lost stands, on provate property. On each of my stands, I have a laminated card attached and visible that reads something to the effect of "Before you steal this treestand, please be aware that your picture has already been taken, and the authorities will be contacting you shortly"

Its BS, I dont have their picture, but it makes a person think twice about ripping that stand down.........especially now in the age of trail cameras and videos because it certainly could be true. Knock on wood, I havent lost one since I started attaching this card.

Now if my thief is on here, well then I just blew my cover[:@]
