Fixing Stands? State Land?

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if I can get some help as to the exact rules about permanent stands on state land. Our group has a couple of stands that were built many years ago and we were wondering the rules about fixing them up. Is it legal to fix them up? Most of the repair wouldn't even entail nailing to the tree, just nailing to the wood already nailed to the tree. Any help would be great.

Thanks!!

It is fine however any stand or blind on public land becomes public property by law...most guys dont take others stands but if it happens by law u cant do anythign about it. Ive known guys who got in trouble wiht the co for hunter harrasment when they kick another guy out of "their" stand

Thanks for the info guys. I found a great new spot and wanted to build a stand as well as fix up a couple more. Just wanted to make sure that was okay. Wouldn't that be something, two guys who don't know each other in the same stand? grin.gif

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
