If you are from the Vidor/Mauriceville area and know this person, let him know that I want my brand new Browning Strikeforce back. It was only out for a week.

I'd be wanting more than that. Bold sumbuck at least you got a good image of the culprit.

What type of helmet is he wearing? Looks almost like a military issue. Where exactly is this at? I had an issue with a thief, I know him personally. Might be him.

There is someone in the UTV....maybe female?

Kinda what I thought. Looks to have a go pro mount on it maybe.

This is off Texla Rd. And yes I think that’s his wife/girlfriend in the passenger side.

He spent all his money on the buggy apparently. I’m sure he just didn’t want the proof he was there.

No, same person. He takes the helmet off and puts it on the dashboard while he is looking for this camera.

Tucker, I would keep an eye out on Craiglist for any of your merch. If so, he'll give you his cell number.

Hope this gang gets caught.

I caught him on camera hog hunting. Sidearm on his belt...that's criminal trespass with the intent to poach or capture game. The penalty was $2000 and some time in jail. He had a felony on his record and several illegal game violations. He had stolen my hog trap, trail camera, hunted from one of my stands, stole an All Seasons feeder from a member, a homemade feeder, plus the corn from ea of those feeders. That's all I can think of right now.

Yeah, he is very well known, just mention his name to the GW.

He got caught in Taylors bayou with a whole bunch of undersized bass, to the tune of $1200.

The warden was telling me he was jailed for that, his dad bailed him out.

I was livid when my lease manager told me that....that was my last year on there.

If you are a Facebook user, you might consider posting up these photos on some of the FB pages geared for East Texas Hunters. Three of them are called "East Texas Deer Hunting", "903 Outdoors" and "East Texas Bow Hunters Association". They each have several thousand members and ya never know, somebody might just know somebody. Hope you find them.

I was thinking about posting it on FB, but I plan to take this camera down before that. He knows where they are at, especially if him or his buddies see these pics. It looks to me like he was searching around for a camera at this feeder but didn’t look in the trees. Unfortunately the one he stole was up in the tree about 10-11 ft and he saw it.

From reading the above posts, it appears they know who he is. I don’t know why his name has not been told.

Someone should get a menu out and order him a serving or two of country arse whuppin!

I have been given the same name by multiple people. The Game Warden has been notified. I’m not going to post a man’s name without knowing for sure it is him.

Thanks to the folks that messaged me with information.

He has had some. Trust me on that. It is possible it isn't him, but the odds are....well he has a reputation.

OP has the name.

With that Go Pro on his helmet, he will probably be posting some riding vids. Just sayin

Looks like a helmet with NV helps you see the IR camera flash. This guy is hunting cameras?

That’s pretty interesting. I thought it looked like a GoPro mount, but looking harder it does look like maybe a NV monocular or something. This dude is high class trash.

Man sorry that happened. Can’t stand a thief. Hope you catch him and get you camera back. Just curious though my lease is partly on Texla rd. Is yours North or South of the road and what is the name of it?
