I bet many of these thieves are not even hunters. They're guys that know stuff will be in the woods and they move around stealing it. Same guys that go on private property and steal stands and feeders.

I have purchased locks at Academy. Sometimes they are not by the cameras but by the feeders and such.

Yeah, we don't have much of that stuff at the Academy's in El Paso, mostly camping stuff and women's bathing suits.;-/

Hey brotha, why donít you just wing it on unit 6 tomorrow.!! Finding tracks with this wet ground should be easy to find currently used game trails. Pack a blind and bow and try it. Sometimes trying something new tactics pays big dividends!!!!🦌🦌

Hello everyone,
Iím brand new to the forum and been seeing a lot of people getting things stolen. It sucks that people do that and Iíve been victim to two stolen cameras and a pop up in the past, which were all locked. Last year I got the smart idea to put a hidden camera up where I was hunting in area 5 overlooking my camera and caught someone cutting the tree down and taking my camera with the cable lock still on it. I sent these pictures to the game warden, but never heard back from them. Also, could anybody help me post pictures on this forum?

Area 6 has been good. I have hunted there a couple of years. A buddy has taken 3 nice bucks from there. I had a nice big 8 come in but as I drew back my drop away rest broke and my air fell. I could only watch him. Hurt me since it was fun season and didnít have my back up. Good luck!

Not all cameras have ability to put cable/locks on them. This maybe one of those.

Can anyone enlighten me on the most heavily pressured areas when shotgun season opens?Wanting to give myself more options to hunt besides unit 9, but really wanting to do my best to stay away from crowds? I know you’re never gonna avoid everyone, just want to minimize it. Thanks in advance everyone.

Ok. So everyone needs to continue hunting their spots regardless of pressure. Thatís been a standing rule at twin buttes going back 20-40 yrs.

I wonder whatís going on?? Have the deer numbers dropped in the area? Seems that no one is seeing anything. Not even doeís. Usually doe sightings every time. Or you guys guys just have some bad juju going on!!
