    Camping on BLM

    Has anyone ever experienced any problems with people stealing or messing with their camp while away hunting for antelope/mule deer for the day?

    It would take some balls to do that would not hesitate to shoot an ask questions later! We have camped 2 time no problems so far maybe it has something to do with everyone having a gun lol

    No problem for me either, but I do not leave anything of much value at camp either. Better safe than sorry I guess.

    Thanks! I was just wondering if it ever happens. I wouldn't be leaving anything valuable, just my tent, sleeping bag, ice chests and a dry box with close and food in it. Everything else would be with me while hunting.

    Never for me as well. You gotta think that almost everyone now is hunting and in general people are honest!

    I have never had a problem on public land. I lock anything valuable im not taking with me in my truck just to be on the safe side and if im backpacking I need everything valuable with me anyways so I never really thought about it much. I think people out hunting and camping are generally pretty respectful of others camps. I did have some friends get their guns stolen off their 4wheelers at night while they were parked in a shed on private land. The shed was near a gravel public road and the owners house was back off the road a bit and I dont think leaving their guns was was a good idea but still it was a bad situation that could of been avoided. Them and others we know have hunted that ranch for years and never had a problem but you never know.
