Occasionally copper thievery can become a "self-cleaning oven".
Warning: Graphic!

We did have a problem with people stealing the power cable that powered these machines. one night late we lost power to the muskie dragline so as uausual the electrician was contacted to trouble shoot the problem, which was just a process of elimination. The electrician soon found the problem, seems two thieves were trying to steal power cable, problem was the thieves didn't know the cable they were trying to steal was energized with 13,800 volts of good ole electric. one died and the other went to prison. i would imagine the one that survived probably changed his ways "when he got out of prison". this is not funny but to me they both got what they deserved. BTW the one that died was trying to cut the power cable with a hacksaw, needless to say that saw wasn't much good after that little stunt.
Skymonkey i feel for you nothing worse than someone stealing anything that doesn't belong to them. that is one reason i do not believe in gun control or most of the laws that pertain to protecting family and property. I feel if "Anyone" is trying to harm a family member or steal your personal property they deserve no less than 300 grains of lead.
Would that happen to be the same. Big muskie thats on display on the AEP property in OH?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Seeing as to the location of my place, and how isolated it is and the given distance from the nearest law enforcement agency and my neighbors are like minded family. There are always burned vehicles on really remote mountain tops and thousands of places to hide things that the coyotes would eat down to nothing and nobody would ever find these things. I dropped 3 deer carcasses behind my house up on the mountain and went up there squirrel hunting today and all that is left is a little hair on the ground. Not even any bones are left.....bwahahaha!

Yeah, I like the idea but they need to tighten up that grouping to look more persuasive. This was mine when I got my CCW permit.

I hate those big targets and yes I'm painfully aware that I dropped 3 of them.

WOW, those two weren't very bright.
But then again. I bet jist for an instant they were

"Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for me; JESUS CHRIST and the AMERICAN SOLDIER. One died for my soul,the other for my freedom."

At birth, God bestowed each & everyone of us with the most important responsibility there is..................FREE WILL.

Haha, nice group there man... Ya dropped three to the left though, in case you missed that.

Seriously, that's better grouping than half the cops in my town.

Just the way I like 'em. Well done, (or "extra crispy" if they try to run...).

Turning good wood into designer firewood on a daily basis.....

I never plan my days. "Premeditated" is a word Lawyers love to toss around in courtrooms.
