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

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
