Mike is spot on.  Number of years back two brothers stole my pickup and trashed it.  Eventually found out who they were and somehow the rumor got started that accidents happen around big chipping equipment and one of them was destined to end up in a bag of shavings.  No idea how that rumor got started, but it did end up with the last brother fleeing to a small island, that is only accessible via ferry, to turn himself into the State Police.  I was told he sat at the dock making sure there was a cruiser on the approaching ferry.

I've heard a few of you guys make the point that you need the thieves to think you're crazy. I also don't think a few of you don't have to work very hard at convincing anyone 😁😂

One other thing......a high tensile hot wire fence is another decent deterrent.  Make your gates hot as well.  Might not stop the crook, but it will make a few have a bad experience for a minute or two.  Had a buddy that was having trouble with folks breaking into his mounted toolboxes on his work truck.  He wired a deadman switch into an air horn just inside one of the side boxes.  When the guy opened the door he got a good awakening.......plus it alerted he and the neighbors to action along with a souped up rottie. :o :o

Mike, what a trade you made. Paying real estate taxes in Mass to being your own vigilante in TN. smiley_headscratch
I lived 3 houses from the big projects at berkshire and bay st in springfield,  same stuff i had to do up there, heroin gangs are much more dangerous than meth monkeys.  


I got 54x more land for half the price. Property tax bill is about 1/10th and the cops are equally as useless except these ones say shoot him if you have to. And i dont have to worry about the thieves color.

Funny i just made this today for my wife.  No parking lot, no trash.  Not even a trail to it or around it. 

And i get to live here.

For me it is fuel tampering and Oil tampering and equipment damage.

Good 4k networked cameras, at least 16 cameras with POE
Power Over Ethernet. uses standard RJ-45 cables
use Dielectric Grease in the outdoor connecters

Trail Cameras.
cuddeback - CuddeLink Black Flash
the Long range ones have a red light that blinks when the battery is low, thus giving way its location

Tip - have two cameras watching each other. that way you might catch the thief when the camera is stolen

with the cameras put the Serial Number for the camera name

the biggest problem with trail cameras is they look like trail cameras.

Buckeye cam is the same system some border patrol and various other government agencies use. No cell service needed but you can get it if needed. You have a base unit with your laptop or phone with first camera range of one to two miles then each additional camera acts as a repeater so you could go for miles. Solar panels so you never need to go out there. All settings can be controlled from base. Also they have gate openers and feeders that can be on the same system. Made in Athens Ohio

Maybe thats why thy leave me alone I have shot at a few of them ;D
Can’t do that here, even if they break in to rob you, can’t use/point a gun lol there was a guy recently who finally got let off after 2 years on a murder charge for defending himself from someone breaking into his house and trying to tie him up, anyway yeah he ended up blasting him, but still ended up being dragged through courts drained financially and life in ruins over it. Canada’s justice system for ya. I say you come looking for trouble on someone’s property you deserve every bit of force coming to you in

If not who you gonna call? The RCMP? Don’t make me laugh. Portapique is all I need to say, how that was handled.

A 12 gauge shotgun tied up about 8" off the ground with a trip wire. I know a guy that got his leg blown off in this manner. He continued to be a POS after this and still ended getting murdered in his own home for screwing over the wrong people. 

Just make sure, if you catch a thief on your own land in this country that he is never found again. Especially since he likely didn't tell anybody where he was going.  A 15 ton excavator makes that an easy task... Like has been mentioned, in Canada, you don't have the right to defend yourself or your property, even against an attacker who has made it clear they are intent on killing you or your family, still no rights. Your supposed to roll over and take it up the cornhole. If you engage him with intent, it has to remain silent as you are now a criminal.

No wonder they do what they want without regard of consequences.

Ive pondered what id do and I guess I will never know until Im in a situation but it almost feels easier to disappear them out in my back swamp bogs rather than try to call the police or defend myself in anyway then after go to the police. So sad its this way.

We have a current problem with heroine addicts in our community. Lifetime criminals that will steal anything from anybody. Useless. If they disappeared, nobody would miss them except their fellow addicts. They literally litter needles up and down our road drive in a complete stuper and steal anything not bolted down and some stuff that is. The cops are a simple joke, do absolutely nothing. Everybody knows, but nobody cares. It really makes me think about what Ill do when one of them decide to try me. I don't know what Ill do, but I can guarantee, they will never come back a second time! Most of them are to *DanG weak to even walk let alone fight, they look like zombies.

They used to smoke crack and stuff like that, whatever was under the kitchen sink, but they have graduated over the past few years to stronger drugs now. Probably worse yet are the acquaintances they deal with. Hopefully they get offed for drug debt before they screw our community to badly.

I literally brought an entire nap sack they dumped near our local water resevoir to the cops. This is a place where people fish, camp, sit by the lake with kids and dogs.  It was full of used needles. They know, we know, they the cops, just don't care.  They are to busy charging folks for attending church services here to deal with the true crime. Its probably just easier for them to go out hassling law abiding citizens. No investigation is involved with that one.

That’s right it is easier for them to hassle law abiding citizens, just like this insane gun ban to cover the fact of how big a failure our police force is, and government, they say”look what happened, see we need less guns!”, are you kidding!? (Funny how after the fact they said this itncame out the guns were illegally obtained anyway) If anything that whole scenario tells me I NEED a gun to protect myself, because the police sure as heck won’t move in to help. Heck they shot up a fire hall full of people hiding and then drove off and there was “no wrong doing found” in officers actions closed cases all gone, gun ban now! Nothing to see here, whoopy doo.

Not to mention the smooth brains that vote for these people mostly come from urban settings, phoning the police is easy, they are probably 10 seconds down the road at Tim Hortons, out here yeah no, I may be lucky if they get here in 15min. By the time they get here I don’t need them anymore because the deed has been done.
