I have no pics to go along with it, but just picked up a matthews solocam with empty quiver leaned up against the inside of one of our fences.

Ive found arrows in that area before, but now someone is out of a bow. I looked around pretty hard thinking they might have set it there to hide when they heard me driving up. If they were watching, i bet it sucked to watch that bow get tossed in the bed of my truck.

Now if i could just catch them out there.

Right nice of them to leave you their gear. They will now report it stolen. So you might want to take it to the game warden yourself and get ahead of the claims.

What style, draw length, and weight? I'll buy it, watch out there was just a thread on here for a neighbor taking something that he found on his property that belonged to a neighbor and he kept it (a deer) and he was screamed at by other members on here...I would keep quiet, or be ready to be judged by a bunch of people that don't know you... confused2

So make sure it isn't the neighbors then.

Good luck with trying to find them. Put some trail cams out (if you haven't already) and see if you can get them on camera

Check the bow to see if it has a serial# on it, if it was registered when purchased you might be able to find out who owns/ owned it you can call Matthews to see if it was registered. Keep in mind if it was sold then the original owner may not be your man.

Camera! Good idea, they will return looking for the bow. I would leave them a note and hide the camera(s) well.

When you find out who it is, a thank you note for the bow would be customary grin Along with the complaint to the SO and GW up

From my days as a bow dealer, only a sporting good shop can sell a Matthews bow, not some big box place. Matthews will have documentation of that particular bow being sold to a specific bow dealer. There used to be a Matthews dealer rule that you had to be 50 miles away from another dealer to be able to sell their equipment, so maybe that can help narrow it down. Matthews did this because they wanted to be known as a specialized company and wanted professional bow dealers to be able to install and sell the accessories. Don't know if that has changed. If the bow was purchased second-hand, then there's no telling. As for the poacher, he should've hauled butt with the bow in hand. Good luck.

I would have looked around for the owner if I found it leaning on the fence. I think that you are saying that it was 6" into your property?

I really, really hate poachers and trespassers, so I would have left a note with my contact info. If I got the call, I would hopefully be able to ID the person - and get the story on why it was there. Then I could decide what the next step is........ No call would indicate a poacher/trespasser.
