That being said there has been more than one thief in the local area come down with an acute case of lead poisoning. My neighbor swears a thief to him looks just like a deer during rifle season of which he's an avid hunter.
He's a pretty good neighbor really. Doesn't bother me and I don't bother him. He doesn't mind my trucks or generators, and I don't mind his guns no matter how many dozens of rounds are let loose with a single squeeze of a trigger. He keeps an eye on the place when I'm not there.
Come to think of it I did annoy him once but really wasn't my fault due to wind change. I was putting into practice my "environmental conscienceness", getting rid of a dozen or so used tires which were worn out through a "controlled burn". Was really going great till the wind direction changed and he was BBQing some kind of recent kill.
