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

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
