I'm an idiot! Lost shotgun.

Postby equinedoc » Sun Oct 13, 2013 5:01 pm

I was hunting Turtle Valley in Walworth County this morning, parked off Island Rd. I leaned by Benelli Super Vinci against the passenger side of the truck as I loaded the rest of my gear. And then drove off without it. Obviously it was not there when I went back after realizing I had forgot it. I don't deserve it but I'm hoping some kind soul found it and is willing to return it.

If not, report it lost to your local department. It will be entered into NCIC.

Got my gun back! It was turned into the Sheriff's office yesterday. Glad I had recorded the serial numbers on all my firearms this summer. Sheriff's deputy said they will not return lost property unless you can prove that it is yours. Without that it might have been tough.

Congratulations! Great news.

Now would be a good time to send a pizza to the Sheriff's office and a check to the guy who turned it in.

Oh, and buy a lottery ticket.
