    Lucky you weren't charged with a felony depending on the value of the camera, intent has much to do with, but that was pushing the envelope on lucky for you.

    Honestly, I'm surprised more stuff doesn't get stolen. Think about how much stuff is sitting in the beds of pickups at drawings.

    We got hit for the second time this year! Put out snow decoys yesterday, son shows up this morning and about 10 - 12dzn decoys are gone. Also went thru the pit and stole calls and misc items. Enough to make it a felony theft. Be on the look out for some Winglock calls because whoever has 5 or 6 for sale is a suspect

    Canton area just north of Cilco, like real close but not inside old Cilco ground.

    Multiple brands of decoys. Calls stolen out of the pit are easily identifiable Winglocks

    Just want to update that it has come to light that 2 more pits have been hit! It appears someone is being dropped off, gathering snow socks and decoys with bases as well as entering pits. Unknown thieves are using bolt cutters to cut cables and locks to gain entry to property and pits. If you notice a suspicious vehicle making multiple trips past your spot I highly suggest getting a description of vehicle and plate number, if possible, just in case!
