Auga frias theifs

Postby Sgtstadanko707 » Sat Oct 26, 2013 12:33 pm

Our blind is in richvale. Someone stole all of our decoys. Over 3k in gear gone. It had to be tweakers. Be on the look out for your stuff. All mine stuff had ES written on the bottom.

Yeah not cool. Went out to get my refuge bag and not a hung left. Over 500 ducks and another 100 geese. Full bodies, shells and even the chairs. I am so angry right now I don't even know what to do.

And when and if you catch the guy using them, he'll probably tell you he bought them from somebody online or at a garage sale.
A spread that big will be hard to sell without advertising it, harder to use without it being noticed.

You may have a chance.

Everything was marked. Nice bright fresh sharpie and brand new deeks. It would be hard to pice out 500 decoys and not find some.

Was the field flooded and who ran the club or is the farmer. If flooded that would be a tone of work an take a lot of people. My guess like you is tweakers from Oroville. I grew up in Richvale so I know the area. Sorry for your loss, I'll keep an eye out around Biggs and Gridley. Nocalhonker

It was dry. He said take them out last weekend and water was coming in on Monday. Yeah to the north end of the property. Water just hit our field today.
I am thinking it had to be farm help. The blind is far off the rd and everything was locked in ground. No way some random would know it was there.

Every year I hear about scads of dekes being stolen. Yet I never hear of them being sold.

Where the heck to they all go?

If that is the case it has to be hunters then filling there spreads. I was trying to give them the benefit of the doubt.

I would check close first bro ... Farm Hands prefer to not deal with water, my guess is someone's rice spread just got a lot bigger. :mad:

That blows buddy. I will keep an eye out but I doubt they ever make it this far south. I have some deeks I can spare if you need any. Just let me know I plan on getting up to Marysville pretty soon.

Anyone have any old deeks they might want to sell. I am going to have to buy more new ones but would be down to pick up some cheaper fillers as well. :bow:
