    Most true scumbags understand that hunters are invested in keeping their firearms licences and as such are unlikely to shoot them

    I seen on Facebook that someone stole a tandem trailer (Gibbons one I think) from parked on Thompson's Track over the weekend just gone, this happens now and then. There is a camera that records the comings and goings but how available this information is to others I am not too sure of, I believe it is not one of those that can identify number plates. People really do need to make it bloody difficult to get at their trailers.

    Mate used to leave a coffee cup on the back spare wheel on his Terano, and prop the wheel holder open with an old chair, looks like you have just gone for a walk and could be back soon.

    Do you honestly think those type of peoples level of thinking is that advanced?

    Average criminals have a 30-minute horizon, so maybe, maybe not, probably not, who knows. Then again the average criminal knows a lot of people go hunting without a firearms license cos their mates do it (what do we expect, they can't get a FAL and hunting food is a natural right), so they don't know who's about to return from the bush.

    I like the idea of the vehicle tracker independent of the vehicle battery, also love the setup where fuel is shut off and you can start it but only get a few hundred metres. I can see someone getting reeeally peeved with yours truly on a regular basis with that one though ... and she's not me.

    They wouldn't shoot them because its F@#KING MURDER! Not because of the fear of losing their license. Losing their licience is proberly the last thing on their mind if they did such a deed.

    I know a guy who got a cheap Galaxy S1 and loaded a tracking programme onto it

    He put it up in the roof lining of his Surf and had the charger powering it running off the ceiling light - taped it down and kept the ceiling light running ok so no reason to suspect

    The tracking programme tells his other phone where his Surf is at all times

    Insurance requirement for insurance on Hiluxes (and a bunch of others) in Sarf Africa was to have a 'tracker' fitted.

    So then they would strip your car as they drove it to try and find the location of the device. Happened to a buddy, was retrieved with interior completely stripped out. Insurance elected to put it back together but he said it never stopped leaking/giving hassles - next time he notices it stolen, he says he's going to find a coffee shop and have a few cups of coffee before he reports it's stolen to make sure the damage is sufficient to get it written off.

    Insurance as said above
    Also a Trail Cam hidden good is a good insurance to find culprits

    No no. They're only shooting thieves, not actual people.
