    Finally got a chance to go to the lease and get some stand time in and I found our cabin destroyed. The assholes tore the place apart dumped the beds and couches. Threw all the drawers in the kitchen open and smashed dishes. For some reason they decided to take the tv and put it in the back yard. My plan was to get there Friday afternoon and get a hunt in then and one in the morning before heading home. I ended up spending most of Friday cleaning everything up after waiting on the sheriff to get there and take a report. One of the douchebags cut themself on the window they smashed and bled all over so I got to clean that up as well. Sheriff took a sample of the blood but said unless they were in the system it was pretty much useless. The most screwed up part is it doesn't look like they took anything. Liquor was still there. 300 dollar climbing stand not touched. Desktop computer left. Playstation not touched. Even our cash for corn was still there. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Man that sucks. We got hit few years back so I expect things to be gone every time I go up. But I do have a new neighbor with fire power, open carry, teaches cyber security at university, with Confederate flag outside and rothwilder inside. So I think that helps.

    Report that crap to the sasquatch hunters you see on TV. I swear they'll come out and tell you that's very "squatchie" behavior. Probably even pay you to for the blood sample. I wish I could be an "expert" in something that you can't study and or ever see.....just my two cents

    My guess would be kids, they didn’t take anything because they’d have to explain where it came from to their parents. They just busted the place up like you’d expect juvenile delinquents to do. Probably real young considering the liquor wasn’t touched. Sorry to hear about it though. Maybe worth screwing some expanded metal mesh over the windows. Might not stop a well equipped and determined scumbag but would stop kids and the opportunistic scumbags.

    I know you shouldn't have to but you might thing about investing in a cellular trail cam to watch over the place. That way you'll be notified immediately when someone is there and can call the cops if necessary. We're lucky in the fact we don't have to worry about that as we hunt on family land and just camp at my parents house. However, if we did have a remote cabin somewhere I'd certainly consider hiding a camera close by just in case.

    Man that sucks. I have wanted to put a cabin up at my place for years but I know the same thing would happen to me. Meth gives folks some ignorant ideas!

    The blood won't be good unless they are in the system. Thing is, people that are capable of doing stuff like that are probably either in the system or soon will be. That sucks...

    I had a brand new moultrie A35 that I was going to put by a hot scrape line but it is now behind the cabin. It won't stop them but at least we will get some pics of them if they come back. The people we lease from said they will pay for the window replacement so we got that going for us at least.

    Coming home to Iowa was always a concern that my Polarious, guns, and or deer heads would be gone. I never had any problems. I always kept a camera in the front yard that took pictures of license plates coming in and out of the drive.

    There was a group of young punks that was doing the same thing a few years back in the general area of my land. I noticed that one of the Abloy locks on my prairie gate had some hammer marks on it. They had tried my gate but were unable to break the lock. Too lazy to walk into my land. So a very costly lock made in Finland saved me from a similar circumstance.
    The kids did get caught eventually and guess what, nothing happened to them as they were juveniles. Big surprise!

    Locked gates deter lots of would be thieves I imagine. I have a place an hour away from home and every time I drive in I fully expect to have been hit. I've owned the place ten years and have only lost one camera. I thought I had lost another, but I just forgot where I had put it:(

    We have a nice 1200 sq. ft. house down there too, three years old, and I would really be pissed if it got burgled or vandalized. Insurance won't cover the feeling of being violated.

    This is the problem. No repercussions for misbehavior...

    That sucks. I feel your pain. The first couple of years we had our property we had a pretty shabby shack but we had electricity so we had a refrigerator and lights in it and stored hunting equipment in it. Its about 100 yards off the rural highway not visible from the road. We have a gate and I put a Moultrie camera in a security box on a tree secured by a Python lock (don't waste your money) to capture anyone one coming in the road. Well the sorry bastards used an axe from the shack to cut the Python lock and took the Moultrie (left the axe by the tree). The only thing they took from the shack was a case of beer from fridge, none of the hunting gear or equipment stored in there. I wouldn't have even cared about the beer but that was $250 worth of camera and equipment just so they wouldn't be seen.
