    :crazy:Just wanted to let everyone know thieves are targeting conservation areas and boat ramps I did not know this but found out the hard way Saturday night my fishing buddy and our wife's were fishing the Mississippi we put in at Columbia bottom and fished Alton but when we got back well we were short some items after talking to Officer Walker this has become an epidemic in the state sense May. So don't leave anything in your vehicle I will be back to Alton soon but wont even have trash in my truck

    Welcome to the Boc Dave... from the Beach at Los Angles....

    Sorry to hear about the problem ..... I have avoided going into wilderness areas hear in Calilfornia because of the problem..... If i lived closer, I'd set a trap and wait for the a holes to show up.... Its like that all over this country..... I read some posts back a few years ago.... and on a river, across from a casino... there were "trash folks" preying on fishermens cars while they were out fishing.....

    yuckky butt heads....

    Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Wish there was something we could do to put a stop to this idiocy!! By the way Dave, you might want to make your font size a little bigger so it's easier to read!:0a5:

    Due to the fact that most enforcement agencies are under staffed to begin with, i support the trap a thief program. A handful of able bodys wait in the bushes and when the pilfering starts, just leave their bloddied beaten remains there for the crows. No arrest or law even called but the word will soon spread hey ole Dirty joe the thief got the crap beat out of him at columbia bottoms the other nite and came limping back to town with a dip net suck out his arse.:eek:oooh: The economy is bad as i ever seen it and theift is on the rise but there are ways to slow it down too.

    Boat ramps have come up on the list of good targets for theives. Its got to where I leave nothing in a truck anymore. It wont be long till one of us catches some idiot. If its me catchen em it might get messy :wink:. Just make shure you secure your gear. And use a good car alarm. As far as layen in wait nice idea but could turn ugly fast. Better bet is to write down the lic number and let the county boys track em down. Its how we got rid of a few chunks of human garbage in my area of Gasconade. Funny thing how the theiven stopped cold and a few went to the big house for tripple nickels.

    As luck usually has it the only time the police show up is is in mid beat down of a thief and then guess who goes to jail.

    Yes it sucks but on the bright side we caught some fish and had a good time. While karma will bite them in the A$$ Grand theft auto 7 years
    Trying to run over a cop 15 years
    Steeling 2 two guns from water patrol 25 years
    The look on their face when the jury says guilty and the judge says life...... Priceless

    whenever im out and about fishing i always make sure to stop by my truck every few hours, i once caught someone attempting to break into my camper..... i put a stop to it and a stomp to him. Im not normally a violent person but theft is so petty and ridiculous espicially when i have to work hard for everything i get. Thieves need to gtfo permanantly.
