    Default Word to the wise

    Took a trip to arkansas last week. Stopped in Birmingham and while staying in the hotel had every bit of hunting gear stolen. Guns, cameras, computers, blind bags and all. Re grouped at MackS and had an ok trip after all that crap. Donít ever leave your gear in the truck!

    There are thieves who target just folks like yourself, fishermen too. Park your boat at the restaurant for breakfast on the way to the lake and you may not have any gear when you come out. Happened to 3 people I know up this way.

    It is a hassle to drag all your gear to the room but it is a must.

    around here you can't go to Lowe's or Home Depot and leave anything, the vultures are circling. Yet people still do. The movie theater is always listed in the entering auto portion of the Police Reports, yet women still leave their purses in plain sight.

    I am considering taking the tool box out of my little truck that I take to shoots. It will keep us from backing into spots we can see from inside or finding somewhere else that we can see.

    That sucks but at least you made out good on the trip. Congrats on the shooting. I always tote everything to the motel room but I only do a couple trips a year at most.

    That really sucks!!! Same thing happens at the lakes while fishing. And they are not content to just steal your stuff. MY BIL
    lost everything out of his truck and while they were at it they crushed the bearing buddies on the boat trailer and slashed his tires. Sorry turds cleaned me out at the Rose Hill boat ramp years ago while parked during a deer hunt. The only thing I leave in my truck now during hunting season is stuff I'm willing to sacrifice, cheap ice chests (no Yetis for me) and soft gun cases unzipped and folded in half in plain view.!!

    I had the exact same thing happen to me last year on my way to Missouri. I was making sales calls in Birmingham and stayed the night, my truck got broken into and they stole two shotguns and a pistol
