PSA: There is *NEVER* any reason to touch, let alone STEAL someone’s else’s equipment!!!!!! I hope karma & Mother Nature really come back and bite the asshole who stole my steps in the ass!!!!!!! Backstory: I walked into my stand this afternoon that my husband just moved a few days ago, to find my bottom steps missing so I couldn’t get up there. Took a walk around and found another stand about 70 yards away & I’m assuming it was him who did it bc he didn’t like we were that close. Mind you, it is SO thick and heavily wooded, he had no idea there was anyone in the area because you can’t see the stand. And even more so, the stand we found close to us was recently moved as well because we saw that stand earlier in the season in a different spot not too far away when we were scouting. We actually try to talk to everyone we see in the parking lot to find out where they are so we DONT hunt their area. We are extremely courteous & that trait seems to be a thing of the past. It would’ve been nice if the person left a note at the stand or by the car saying “hey, you put this stand in close proximity to mine, would you mind moving it?” Or leaving a phone number so we could talk about it and move our stuff accordingly. But no, this asshole had to steal our shit. Our hard earned money, the hours and hours of scouting and walking and hunting we’ve put in. My husband got hurt at work last week and with stitches in his leg moved that stand for me so I would have better luck trying to shoot my first deer. If the person who did this is on the forum, I just want to give you a huge F*** YOU!!!! The end.
