i live on a busy street with older nosy neighbors. yet a 1/4 of my firewood pile is missing and no one has seen anything. i know the obvious is to move the pile but with snow on it now it is not as easily done. plus i would rather catch these people then adjust where i keep MY things. so what do you guys suggest? cheap dvr with camera or game/trail camera?

or suggest me something! cause if i find out who this is i am going to call the police and press charges! this is stupid this pile they are pulling from is wood i paid for because it was seasoned for this year. they aren't taking the almost seasoned wood i cut down myself. but even so it is the principal!

Do you have a good place to hide a trail cam where it wouldn't be easily seen or reached?

Amazon. Camera dvr setup. Get a sony super HAD 4 cam setup. Install one cam immediately. Setup will take 5 minutes

Sounds like it's time to stake out your woodpile wearing some arctic camo.

You're gonna get cold, sucks to be you.

I always store my extra gun powder in my firewood.

Soak firewood with blackpowder and kerosene. Don't use yourself and you should find out soon.


















This is not a serious post and in no way should my comments be used in place of official law enforcement.

drill some holes into the wood and fill those holes with some pill bottles full of piss and cap the holes. When the wood burns and then the piss burns omg nasty smell that won't go away. You will smell it in their chimney smoke also.

Another option is to drill holes and fill the holes with smoke bombs which will maybe smoke the house out and definitely let the neighbors know they were burning wood filled with smoke bombs.

other option take some 22 shells, pull the bullets crimp the mouth of the casing with pliers, drill a few holes and stuff them into the wood and fill over the holes.

Bottle rockets/firecrackers in holes should do the trick

Back home guys used to drill a hole and put a stick of dynamite in the wood.

I would place a sign. CAUTION!!! this wood may cause acute lead poisoning, handle with care.

Grouchy pit bull. Not kidding. Only put him out at night. Nothing like a good guard dog to put a screeching halt to theft.

love all the ideas. on my way home i was thinking a hole with black powder. and a dog would be great but the wood pile is on the side of my house where it is not fenced in. i will just move the stuff to the back yard when weather permits.

Close. Drill a one inch diameter hole into an "average for pile" sized bit of wood.

Fill hole almost to top with colorful smoke bomb powder.

Plug hole with wooden dowel. (Yes, it CAN be done so as to go unnoticed by the thief.)

After discovering the theft, watch chimneys for purple smoke!

I heard of bears stealing wood. You should set a few bear traps next to your woodpile in known locations to you.


But in all seriousness, get a game cam with IR and place it I'm a discrete location that you would be able to catch the face of the person AND a license plate. Either or will make an investigation very difficult.

I have heard of gun power in a log. Smoke bombs would be cool.
