Were your stands locked to the tree ?
Both had a cable and padlock around the tree. This was a determined scumbag!

I realize I've been very lucky. I put 10-12 stands out a year and these two are the first ones I've lost. this spot is close to some private but unposted ground that gets a number of boneheads hunting on it. Rest assured that I will have something special planned for that spot next year.

I'm liking the cheap trail cam idea. That could work if it's hidden well and placed somewhere that it'd be hard to get toeven if it gets spotted.

I think I'll also start stamping "stolen from" and my name in em!

You should engrave some kind of ID on your stands in a hard to see/ grind off place. Then you'll have concrete proof they are your stands.

Thieves do not care if they are trespassing on private land, why would they? Break one law or 2, doesn't seem to make a difference. I lost some stands also and quit using permanent stands and use exclusively climbers now.

Just like those trail cameras, I would never buy one, would be to worried about it being ripped off.

I lost only one in all the years of hunting here in New England. It wasn't locked and now all of them are locked with 3/8" double ended aircraft cable and a combination lock.

Things like this are why I own a climber , that may not suit your needs but it's something to consider .

Just an idea for some of you that are loosing things in the woods.Go buy a spool of 25lb.spider wire and a pac of salmon egg size trebel hooks & a tube of super glue.
Pre tie about a foot of the line on to each hook.Then put them in a 35mm film can.
After your stand or trailcam is in place Look at the clamping strap and carefully glue one of the hooks in an area where the slim ball will reach.Them tie the other end to a solid anchor point.In some cases more than one hook may be used.
If your local scum sack is not there when you go back you can always practice your blood trailing. []
