The memory cards are gone from two of my game cams. I guess they think they are 'honest' poachers, by not taking the whole camera.

The cameras near the gate and the cabin were not touched, so I'm assuming it was Hog Doggers again. What is it with these arragant, disrespectful a..h0les that think they can run thier dogs anywhere they want?

...well, I guess it's time to check the property lines to see what fences they cut.

Really the only answer is to have a camera that emails pics to you. That way even if they steal the camera the evidence of them being there should be in your email or text and they cant access that.

If I was having this issue with trespassers, I would definitely put up the extra $$ to get one that emails/texts photos to you.

Camera watching the camera might work as well.

Is it a lease? I'd have a lease agreement that you will shoot all dogs on sight if they are on your place.

I'm not shooting any dogs unless they are immediately threatening. This is a people issue!
We have had four thefts and three break- ins to the cabin in three years. They got the kids go kart and an outboard motor last time. Both secured with 1/2" security cables.

I've looked into cell based game cameras, but most of my property has very marginal service, especially down near the river. I'm looking into camera systems where several cameras use wifi to communicate with a central hub that I could mount way up in a tree, with a big yagi antenna and a solar panel, but that is big bucks. I'm not sure if it's worth the money. Ive already provided good pictures of trespassers to the SO, including a license plate that you could read, but nothing ever comes out of it.

East Tx has such a bad reputation for poaching in general. At times I consider just throwing in the towel and selling the place. I have watched a pair of young 8 points last fall on the gam cams. Neither would make 13" but both disappeared before rifle season ever started. The generally acceptable hunting ethic in this area seems to be "if it moves, shoot it". Fences and locked gates are just a minor annoyance..bolt cutters seem to be hunting equipment around here. I find shotgun hulls and beer cans around the little oxbow lake every year.

This is the reason I stopped leasing in East Texas years ago.

It's sad there are so many in this part of our state that have zero respect for what you own.

Is that a rhetorical question ? pitchfork ? nak has it about right, in east texas the locals consider most of the land and all of the wildlife as there own you are simply the most recent tax payer. the Dogs get a bad rap because of bad owners.
