I know the feeling. I had 2 combos stolen out of the back of my truck about 3 months ago. I made it all the way out to the main river from the boat ramp when I realized that I had left them lying in the truck bed. I went back but they were already gone. The only good part of that is that I found them in a a friends pawn shop 3 weeks later and got them back ONLY because I had put a small mailing label on two places inside of the reels. But I still know how you feel. Hate is not too strong a word for theivery. I am still looking for my Ole Man Grand Vision Carbon Elite treestand from last year.
