Default I hate a thief

Went to retrieve my stands today from my favorite spot and someone had stolen one of my ladder stands. Scumbags! Man that makes me mad as a hornet. I always new it might happen but I guess I was in denial.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I agree with you
Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

Thats sorry.. Hard to track a tree stand too..

Ive been telling myself here lately that I need to put my 4-wheeler in the basement instead of in the barn. You know how folks get when they lose a job or think that their going to. They tend to start picking up stuff thats not theirs.

I don't ever wish bad things on anyone but I kinda hope the jerk that took it falls out of it and breaks a couple fingers, or at Least his trigger finger.

I agree with you all, stealing represents someone near the bottom of life's value system. It's opposite the big three, honesty, credibility, and integrity. A theif possesses none of these qualities. Maybe their actions will catch up to them sometime somewhere!
