Here in NJ stands are getting stolen on private property at an alarming rate.
Trail cams are getting stolen on private property too!
We have to go portable now.
Article fron Newjerseyhunter.com
I was out hunting Saturday on a new piece of property that only one other guy has permission to hunt. We put stands up two weeks ago-locked to the tree with cable locks. I got out of the stand at about 10:00, and started walking out. About 1/2 way through the woodlot to the highway, I catch movement and crouch to a knee think I had deer walking toward me-Then I saw the blue flannel.

I had a guy about 65 years old walking through the woods CARRYING BOLT CUTTERS!-and he was headed straight for my stand area! I stopped him, identified him, and reported him to the property owner, who told him the next time he gets caught-the cops get called.

Turns out this guy "always hunted this spot" and was "pissed the some johnny come lately hung a stand in his hunting area" the SOB never owned the property or have permission. He simply hunted there "always" The property owner has owned the land for 10 years-it was never hunted by anyone in that time--legally. The nerve of some people-If this guy was any younger I'm sure the cops would have been called. I guess you get some leeway when your older

My uncle has a 120 acre cattle farm that has some great hunting spots. There are only a handful of people allowed to hunt there, and I know all of these people. Recently, we have been finding traces of other people hunting illegally on the property, and someone has been stealing stuff from my stand ( i had a bow hangar, and a rope to hoist my bow up into the stand) What's even better is that the whole property has a barb-wire fence surrounding it. I know people have been using my stands, and what I want to know is what is an easy way to secure my stand so that no one else can use it??? Please help.

I thought about putting a 6 foot piece of plexiglass over the bottom rungs and locking it with chain and a lock. Any thoughts?
Put a sign on it that says.
This stand is now booby trapped.
If you use it you could die.

Good Luck

See what happens next.

One of my ladder stands on my sister in law's property is actually 4' onto a neighbor's property that I have permission to hunt on . Instead of bolting the foot platform in place , I drilled a hole through that and the frame and ran a long shank lock through the holes .
The only problem I had with that is someone took the clip pins out that hold the ladder sections together . I put some bolts in there last week .............
