Well I purchased a hunting blind from a co-worked this past Fall to bow hunt out of this spring during turkey season. I put this blind about a week or so ago. Well about 4 days ago I went out to check on it because we had hight winds and storms. When I got there I noticed a hole in the front of it first thinking the wind maybe? But got to looking at it closer and the screens were unzipped but the blinds were up clearly someone was in it and the hole was to clean of a rip.
Then hit someone was hunting in it and since I did not have a seat in the yet the cut a whole in it so they could see out of it....Not the window but in the side under the front window!!!
So I put my trail camera up and all I see are deer checking it out. But never put the memory card back in because it was getting late and had to head to work. So a day goes by and I decide to go turkey hunting even though its about 8am.
So I head out to the blind and behold the hole is bigger where it was cut more!!!
Well I have had it with trespassers and getting things torn up. So I purchased a tracking device that will show me in real time on a map like google earth of where this thing is.
With this being said I have an old trail camera that does not work that I am going to take out there and put this thing inside of it and see if it comes up missing. Should give me the address and coordinates of where its at.
I would recommend camouflage your trail camera and find a good spot to place it. I camouflaged my cameras and can hardly see them beyond 20 ft. I put liquid nails glue on them and poke the glue with sticks for texture then paint camouflage colors. Either place it high or low with narrow view lane on blind. Take pictures to law enforcement to file charges. HTH.
use cam with no flash and hide far enough away it won't alert him while in the blind.private land most likely, is neighbor's kids or guest not smart enough to know where property line is.public land,you NEVER leave anything overnight unless locked up and legal
