Somebody ran off with my 4 oz. bottle of Dobbins Beaver Plus at the New York Convention. Have had quite a bit of stuff walk away at the shows over the years.

How sad. Crime is everwhere, can't escape it.

Amazing. Outdoors people are usually the trustworthy type. Sadly if they needed it that bad, youíd probably cut them a deal. I canít stand a thief.

Years ago that got my Canon AE-1 camera and also a laser gun sight. At one show they ran off with Ivan White's bear trap. I try not to think about all the stuff that has come up missing over the years. A short time ago they got 9 brand new traps in boxes with labels on them. That one hurt.

Doesn't have to be outdoors people
Scum of the earth thieves steal from every walk of life and anywhere they think they can make a buck
That kind of scum could have driven by and saw stuff laying in tables and thought; I'll steal that from those hard working people.
NYS let's criminals go! No repercussions. Bail reform has let them free to do whatever they want.

Take finger off of them, then a hand...I know I know harsh and it sounds like a bit like the Middle East but...

Hereís one, Iím giving a predator demo at a little trapping convention and pass around a few traps one a new number 4 Victor coil. I finish the demo up and stick around to answer questions and then pick up my gear, the new #4 cannot be found, someone walked off with it...grrr

NYS is not the only State that let's the criminals go, Michigan is just as bad.

I saw a big beaver walking out of there with a wide smile on his face! That's probably your culprit!

It's a dam shame, Had two cage traps grow legs last week, I have a refundable security deposit for traps in my contracts, but you couldn't expect a homeowner to stay home all day to watch them.I try to keep them out of sight, no matter where are, you find thieves.

For us, former employees have taken more than customers have.

I always use a chain and lock with cages, haven't lost one yet.
