Not to hijack the thread, but this may be a good place to vent.
Our little village does not have a gas station. I keep 3 five gallon gas cans to refill my pickup on the weekends that I hunt. My uncle came out this weekend and we went bow hunting for antelope and deer. Yesterday I needed to add some gas to the pickup, but someone had lifted my gas cans! Talk about pissed!
I called the Sheriff today to report. It seems someone in a black sedan had stolen gas cans from others in the village last week too. It is not anyone local, so I doubt they ever find him.
Stealing is messed up! Bottom line!
The positive thing about this weekend was that my Uncle killed a nice 14 in antelope with his bow at 60 yards, and a tom turkey at 50 yards.
here are pics of the barrel rolling down the hill...maybe the barrel is at the bottom i didnt even think to walk to the edge down below and look. or maybe he actually took it with him who knows. I bont enjoy packing the barrel too far so im not sure why he would go to the work of hauling it out. i only had the chains secured with caribeaners because I was pretty sure bears didnt know how to work them, but I guess ill be putting a lock on from now on.
I went to the sheriffs office this morning and they pulled up the name of the guy I had heard it looked like and printed a pic of his drivers license picture and sure enough looks exactly like him. so the deputy is headed over to talk to him and will call me later with an update
