I was missing a double ladder stand off one of my properties in just the last few days. Normally this neighbor always has his gate chained shut but it was trash pickup day and I found it open and him home. As I got closer to the house I saw my stand loaded onto the back of his tractor.




After taking a couple pictures I knocked and knocked until they finally answered. After a little chat I loaded up my stand and left him maps of the property lines and a survey we had done. I'm still missing two single seat 15' ladder stands off the property but glad to have got the double seater back. Sometimes the mrs likes to go out with me. Sometimes.

You were a lot nicer than I'd been. Glad you got one of your stands back. He knows where the property lines are. He lives there for crying out loud. He's just a straight up thief.

Yes they just bought the property about 6 months ago. Was pretty much running on mine like it was theirs. I suspect they took the other two stands also. All I can do is get a gate up and freshen up the no trespassing signs. Purple paint some posts.
Grand Saline area. Lawless.

And fire lots of rounds while your there. A "Support your local Bandidos" sticker by your gate would also be a nice touch. (I kid.)

It is bad when your neighbors are the ones robbing you. Our family ranch is in that area, so I feel your pain.

Yeah I know. I hate to spend good money on a new gate to be vandalized or stolen. I might have an old ratty aluminum gate I can see how it fares. The metal meth heads pretty much steal anything they can get scrap for. Nothing like being robbed by the neighbors. They pretty much have easy access.

I'd go with a heavy chain and padlock. They would probably steal the gate just for the metal. The chain doesn't cost that much to replace.
