Bow Hunting Gear Stolen!
Vicksburg, Mississippi January 2nd, 2018…one of my worst nightmares came true. After killing a stud of an old Mississippi river 8 point, Justin Zuzak and I were headed to Louisiana for another hunt. We woke up to an awful sight, the truck had been ripped apart and all of our bow hunting gear was missing!
There isn’t much you can do when you find all of your gear missing. First, we filed a report with the police and spoke with the hotel. We watched some of the footage from the security camera and found out the culprit was a white male in a newer grey Chevy truck. When he first appeared on camera he drove through the camera’s view with an empty truck bed. However, when he reentered view the truck bed was full of gear and what appeared to be our Bronc Box. After noticing this, the police took over and went to the surrounding hotels checking their footage to try and get a better view or possibly even a plate number.
With all of our bow hunting gear stolen, we ended up having to cut our trip short and start the drive home. Below is a full list of what was stolen out of the truck.
- Bronc Box
- My new 2018 Matthew’s Triax bow
- Zeiss binoculars
- Zeiss spotting scope
- Various bow tools and accessories
- Safety harnesses and lifelines
- A tree stand and a set of climbing sticks
- Justin’s Muck Artic Pro Boots
- 2 Heater Body Suits
- Kessler camera slider
We will keep you updated with any new developments. Hopefully, the police can find the gear or find out more information to chase it down! I’ve always trusted people too much…lesson learned I guess!
