Introducing TreeStand Shield | Stop Tree Stand Theft
“How do I stop my tree stand from being stolen?”
”What are some tips and tricks to prevent my tree stand from being stolen”
”How can I stop treestand theft?”
We get these questions all the time. That’s why we came up with TreeStand SHIELD, a theft prevention decal for hunting stands.
We all have had a similar thing happen to us. We wash our clothes with scent free soap. We study the map to determine the best stand to go to. We check the wind direction one million times to make sure the deer won’t smell us. We wake up at 4 a.m, drive to our property and then take the mile long hike up the mountain or across the field for the chance at the buck of life time.
Our anticipation begins to rise as we get closer and closer to the tree until we eventually get to the base of the tree only to realize that the tree stand is gone. We look around at surrounding trees and think to ourselves , “Am I at the right tree?” But that hope quickly turns to disappointment as you come to the conclusion everyone hates to see.
“My tree stand was stolen!”
That disappointment quickly turns to anger as you question, “How did they find it?” “Who could have stolen my stand” “What am I going to do now?”
Your hunt was ruined and now you have to spend $200 dollars to get a new one. Who was $200 spare? That's why we created TreeStand Shield. For a few bucks you can play mind games with the next thief that happens upon your favorite stand.
TreeStand Shield is a psychological deterrent that helps convince thieves that taking your tree stand isn't worth the risk of getting caught. Our durable outdoor decal suggests to the passerby that your tree stand is equipped with GPS tracking technology that will ensure they get caught if they attempt to steal your gear.
TreeStand Shield can be coupled with an actual GPS tracking system or works well as a stand alone deterrent. We have found that the risk of "getting caught" is a main factor in whether someone decided to commit a crime or not. We bring that warning to the forefront with our decals. When that person goes up to your treestand to begin to steal it our decal will be staring them in the face with the possibility that they could be caught or even potentially face jail time!
The advantage of TreeStand Shield is obvious. You can't afford to not have one.
Wondering how a decal can actually prevent trail camera theft?
We get that questions all the time! "How can a decal actually prevent theft? It's just a sticker." We have the answer for that!
Our decals get into the head of thieves. Here’s the reason why!
1. A large portion of our customers pair our decals with an actual GPS device.
Thieves would be foolish to assume that there is no tracker paired with our SHIELDs. Because a large portion of our customers do use an actual GPS tracker it makes our SHIELDs even more effective. You can buy our SHIELDs and take advantage of other people using a GPS tracker. You don't necessarily have to buy tracker but because other people do you get to reap the benefits. You get the same amount of protection because thieves won't know which is being tracked and which isn't.
2. Our SHIELDs utilized a scientific theory called Deterrence Theory.
This theory used by phycologists and criminologists says, "If you can increase the perception that the thief will caught you will decrease the likelihood of theft." Put another way, if you make a thief believe that he will get caught he won't steal. Our SHIELDs do just that. We tell them your camera or tree stand is being tracked and that you should respect your fellow outdoorsman and leave the gear alone. We plead with them on both a moral and legal level to urge them not to steal.
Most thieves are impulsive thieves. They don't go into the woods with the intent to steal your gear but instead happen upon your gear and then decide to steal it. Our SHIELDs act as "angel on the shoulder" to discourage bad behavior and encourage good behavior. Our SHIELDs make thieves think twice before committing a crime.
Before just discarding the idea that decals can prevent theft, we urge you to think deeply about what we have described above. There is science and psychology that has gone into developing our product. Our customers have had great success preventing theft with our product. TrailCam SHIELD and TreeStand SHIELD are the most affordable theft prevention systems on the market.
As always, Hunt More, Worry Less.
