Friend of mine who hunts near New Boston had his camera, feeder, and heater out of his stand stolen sometime Thursday or Friday. He hunts on 2,000 acres with 12 other hunters and the thieves would have had to drive in on a 4 wheeler past other stands to get to his. I hate this.

Sounds like an inside job, or at least someone who has been on the property quite a bit. I would be real surprised that someone randomly drives out into the middle of 2,000 acres and finds a feeder and blind and steals everything out of it.

Although it reminds me of a buddy who had a stand "Stolen"

He was hunting a small property about 40 acres, set up his stand on the edge of the property at the far corner from the landowners house. Next door neighbor had a son that was a bit of a dirt bag, lot of run ins with the law, poaching, theft, dwi, MJ possession, ect..... Neighbors son was on his own property and the land owner saw the ladder stand and thought the neighbors son had placed it. He yelled at the neighbors son to stop trespassing and remove his tree stand immediately or he was calling the sheriff. Kid removed the tree stand. My buddy goes out to hunt and his tree stand is gone. Landowner is not around, but his wife is, wife knows nothing about it, says call the sheriff. Deputy shows up, knows dirt bag son lives next door because has had runs in with him before. Walks over to neighbors house, sees tree stand sitting along side carport. Arrests son for theft. It all got worked out in the end and the charges got dropped.

This is occurring at an alarming rate in all rural areas but east Texas continues to be at the top of the list. Makes sense because of the terrain and all the people living and squatting in their shack or trailer on small properties. I would never hunt there again and certainly not leave anything of value unless I lived there or hunted on property that people lived on year round.

A friend had his trailer stolen off his own place just before the start of the season. It's a problem that continues to get worse across East Texas. A large concentration of meth heads throughout that part of the state. I suspect that's who's living in his trailer now.

Please don't paint all of East Texas as dirt bags. There are some good law abiding people that get a bad rap. Yes there are some real dirt/meth heads there also. Those of us who live in East Texas don't like them either.

I've been in Tyler, which is part of East Texas for 16 years now and I had no idea it was this bad here, or that so many people thought so poorly of this part of Texas. Who knew?

Folks aren't generally talking about small towns & mid size cities.
It is when you get into semi rural & rural parts, lots of out of town / absentee owners, lots of secluded back roads, lots of poverty & drug problems.

Of coarse, you'll always hear of the bad folks & the stuff they do and hardly ever hear about the good honest folks and the good things they do for others.

There are 'bad' areas in every county in the state.

Thieves are everywhere it's just a matter of time before they strike. My buddy has been in his neighborhood for 11 years and they finally got him. There have been some real shady characters moving into his neighborhood. Even the preacher man moved out of there. I'm driving down to install cameras for him and his neighbors this weekend at no charge. He says they are using kids as scouts to look for things to steal. Then at night they come in and snatch stuff. Going to be nice to catch some of these fools in the act.

We've had a nice place in Point Blank for 40 years and no problem so far. Mom and dad are gone now so the house is empty but I have good neighbors all around so I am hopeful that my luck holds. It is real hard to find a honest handyman there though.
