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

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
