Get some hardened steel chain and lock it under the seat of your ladder stand where they can't get a bolt cutter in there. Don't lose the key, you won't be able to get it off the stand. Push the bottom of the ladder into the ground and they won't be able to get the ladder either.

Ditto to all of the suggestions about locking things up. Just common sense IMO.

You're not alone, over the years i've supplied a few treestands to so called hunters that i've never met.

Well, thanks everyone for the pointers. I am going to try the trail cam, or a digital video feed to the house $$$$. and lock them up. We will see who has the last laugh!!
