    How can anyone steal gear from another person's camp, let alone a camp that is in a backcountry location

    I can't say that I've heard or read alot about people stealing stuff from camps. Most of the theft I hear or read about is stealing downed animals or stealing things out of truck or trailer when laying over in a hotel.

    That's something to consider. My inclination is that 99% of the people you would encounter are not the types to be thiefs. But, I can say that almost all my gear is ultra-light and expensive. So, the possibility of someone taking it is plausable.

    And... On a seperate note. We actually have trail "pirates" here in WA. Groups of people that rob hikers way way back on the PCT. Haven't heard of this happening to any hunters, but it has happened to un-suspecting hikers with lots of $$$ REI gear....

    I had a friend as a kid that was a cleptomaniac. He would steal anything. Even stuff he didn't want...

    That's because hunters would give them some lead, not possessions. :-)

    Bonecollector said it best! Haha! But I agree with most, I wouldn't worry about hiding it for that theft reasons. As you said before, guys going way back in there are only looking for one thing.

    Good luck!

    I don't really try to hide it that much. I try to hide it from the animals, but not really other hunters. I'm more concerned about finding a flat(ish) spot to camp that will block the wind if possible.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
