Update:

So last month after a couple days of showing pics of the white guy, somebody from his family identified him. He gave me a call and swore he didn't take the camera. I did not believe or disbelieve him. But I was def suspicious of him.

I figured if it was not him, then whoever it was would probably be back, so I put up another camera with a lock box.

Sure enough, a few weeks ago by and I get a pics of these 2 clowns on 7 Nov. I checked the camera on 10 Nov and update the police report with the photos. The came in wearing hoodies, and got this pic of them leaving. You can tell they see the camera.



The next day, I am hunting from a treestand directly behind the camera. I am not in the stand 20 minutes when the guy with the sunglasses comes walking through with a hammer. He was right under my stand when he saw me. He talked to me for 5-10 minutes and came up with a bunch of lies about why he was there with a hammer. I told him he was trespassing and I would prosecute. As soon as he was out of sight I went back to the house and called the law. He was long gone by the time they showed. Talked to neighbors, five treestands have been stolen from the area.

Based on the pics, they were on my place for over an hour. Two guys, one pole, no fishing box. I don't think they were there fishing. I don't know if they were looking for treestands or casing the house or what.

The sherriff's department is completely unconcerned with the situation. They made a lazy attempt to catch them and didn't even give me a courtesy call when they didn't catch them. My mom lives on the property alone. I won't be back for a month. If catch them on my farm again I will make they understand there are consequences.

From experience..............I lost my very first trail cam I owned to a rather large black bear. But it was evident as there where pieces of chewed up camera/box, etc. all over the ground. He did not take it back to the cave for a trophy.
If you didn't find pieces around the area.........I am going to say human thief!!!!!!

This infuriates me! I know how you feel. You feel violated and stole from; they might as well have broke into your house and rifled through your things.

Do you own this property? Or does someone else and they allow fishing from the pond. Sucks your cam is gone. I would say a lowlife person took it and not a bear. Hate it for ya.

Sounds like he knew they were on camera and he was going to destroy the proof... as for fishing.... sounds like they were doing recon and holding an "excuse" for being in the area.

I'm sure the SD would be alot more motivated if a couple of dead bodies were laying on the ground.... after defending yourself.
