lost/stolen auger

10 posts in this topic

my new jiffy model 30 fell off my sled as i pulled it out onto long lake north of saint francis this evening. I saw the only truck leave the lake a mid to late 90's gold s-10 pickup with a topper before i relized it had fallen off i was maybe 300 yards from the access when i noticed it was gone. I have filed a police report but won't press charges if it is returned. PM me if you have any info.

Don't get me wrong, I really hope you get it back, but how can you file a police report for something that was lost? I don't think any charges would stand up in any court against this guy as he could claim he found something on public property and the court could deem it as abandoned property.

Nothing to press charges on if you drop it, but man that is a kick in the teeth I understand your dissappointment.

Filing a police report is a good idea. If an honest individual finds it and wants to try and return it they may very well contact the police department to see if anyone reported a lost property report.

you may very well be right but in stating that it is abandoned couldn't i drive up and steal an empty wheel house and drive away with it and say it was abandoned on public property?, seeing the guy drive off with it, in my eye's, would be stealing he could have just as easily turned around and made an atempt to find out if the guy a couple hundred yards away had accidently dropped it. bottom line the auger probably is never going to turn up. im out 1 new auger and my season is over.

i stated that the auger fell off my sled in the police report at any rate my hope was that the person would get pulled over or see a posting on this forum and i could recover my property as i can't afford to replace it

Dont know the laws in MN ,but in SD you have to make a reasonable attempt to find the propertys owner or you can be charged. Dont remember the exact charge, but had this happen with a customers gift cards he lost in the parking lot.

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
