I have had someone sit in my stand on public land,  i told them to get down and they did. Later that night after getting out of my stand and talking to my dad. The people that moved went and sat right next to my dad on the ground not more than 20 yards away from him. Now i have a can of body spray in my truck incase i see them again. Bucks dont like the smell of body spray........

If I had a stand on public land I might try posting it with sign that says no hunting from this stand keep off.   It sounds like some of these guys just act like they don't know any better.   
Life is good.

There is a limit to how close you can ice fish next to somebody with permanant shacks on public waters or how close a boat can get to shore fisherman on a public lake so why not a law on how far a stand can be from another hunter on public land?

Don't shoot me, I'm just playing devils advocate and asking a valid question about respecting another outdoorsmans rights.


This is my BOOMSTICK!!!

I think your question is more than appropriate.  I think it should be implemented immediately.  It really only makes sense.  But then you'll have the "well they left the spot so it is mine now."  Yeah, makes a little more sense when it comes to ice fishing.  As much as I don't like Pirates it still is a valid argument but when out hunting and you have a stand that remains on public land via legal parameters, it seems pretty much like an ice house on the ice doesn't it?

Very good question.

I just don't get people.  Hunting is suppose to be a fun diversion from what is important in life, like work, family and such.  If someone is in your stand so what?  What are you really out?  Nothing!  Move on find somewhere else to hunt.  The idea of ruining someone elses day is childish and idiotic.  People need to get back some perspective about hobbies.  Too many families are broken up over hobbies and too many friendships end because of a stupid past-time.

swift,

"If sonone is in your stand so what?  What are you really out?  Nothing!  Move on find somewhere else to hunt."

Wouldn't it just be easier if the person who is sitting in your stand found his own place to hunt?

Tim,  That's my point HE DID.  It's as much his tree as yours or anyone elses on that public property.  Getting all worked up doesn't help a thing.

Swift,

Next time you leave your 4wheeler trailer parked in front of your house on the street (because you have nowhere else to put it) I'm going to borrow it for the day. Nevermind you paid for the trailer and wanted to use it that day. Don't ruin my day by complaining that I took YOUR trailer. After all it is on the street and thats public property (right of way).

swift,

No he didn't.  He chose to not do any of his own homework.  He chose not to purchase gear, etc or put forward the effort to make his own hunt.  He squatted on someone else.  I don't have enough time to hunt for me and some leech.  Jeepers, I think it is pretty obvious a person that sits in someone else's stand has a motivation problem.  In no way, shape or form should the person who has the motivation be the person punished.

Yeah, the tree grove is public property.  I would still call the guy a leech for moving within, oh lets say, 200 yards of a stand location I scouted and got to first but I'd understand the tree grove or tree row or whatever is public property.  But to have someone sit right in your stand?  It makes no sense.

Tim maybe your office hours and lack of family allow you time to get out there and scout, hang stands, and complain because someone is "leeching".  But in reality the person in your stand or that put up a stand next to your scouted the area too.  Found a good spot that someone with way more freetime got to first.  Should I throw away the time I have invested in scouting that area too?  Because someone that put up a stand in August and probably is done hunting now has one in the tree I wanted to use?  NO I would put up a stand in the tree right next to it and hunt it.  If I came in to hunt and you were in your stand I'd back out.  I would hope for the same if the role was reversed.  It appears that you and the other hot-heads posting on this thread would piss on the tree or jerk me out of the tree or whatever.  I would NEVER sit in someone elses stand.  But if someone was in mine I'd back out and realize that is the risk I take leaving my stand up on private land.  No confrontation or even ill will.  But like Allen I'm not ten feet tall and bullet proof in my 20's anymore.

   so swift you think it is just fine for someone to be in someone eleses tree stand and that the owner of the tree stand should just walk away and find another place to hunt? I hope you don`t quit understand the question we are not talking just about the tree but the tree stand that is in it and if you do understand you must be one of the guys that do sit in other peoples stand.......

Really? And why is it okay in your mind to go and sit in someones treestand? Unless they gave me permission I would consider myself a lazy squatter for pulling such antics. Why oh why do people think this is okay? Even the game and fish mentioned that a tree stand is private property. Granted it's on public land but same story with boat docks on shore or trailers on the street. No difference, you paid for it and it's yours, others should respect that and stay away. Of course theres always people out there with a different thought process who rationalize that it's acceptable to use things that aren't theirs without permission. Guess there must be some sort of thrill in it or something.

I wasn't attacking you by the way if thats how it came across, I was just trying to point out another scenario.

Another point I wanted to make is if you think people in general walk around the trees looking for other peoples stands as a method of scouting your most likely wrong.  Because you found a funnel, trail, ridgetop or whatever likely the other guy found the same appeal and that is the real reason he is in that area.  Egocentrism wouldn't allow some people to think that the other guy actually put forth an effort.  They go straight to the leech thinking.

But swift, since my stand was up in the area you said I should be the guy to move if someone else sits in it or moves on top of me. I think that is the completely wrong way to look at it.

Absolutely,

Regardless of hours scouting, I would consider one a leech for putting a stand up next to mine if I had gotten there first. But thats just my personal opinion. Ultimately a person has the right to do it but in my mind it's not polite to move in on somebody.

Pigsticker isn't there a link on this thread from the G&F that it is not illegal to sit in someone elses stand on public property?   Is it legal to borrow someones trailer from a road?  UH NO that is theft of property therefore a stupid analogy.

Bowmen, I do understand and NO I wouldn't sit in another persons stand.  I also won't let it ruin my day or somebody elses day.  To each their own. 

My point is get a clue on what is important here.  You are inconvienced one day in your life.  Life isn't going to end because someone hunted where you wanted to.........unless you try to jerk that person out of the stand then maybe your life will end that day.

No need to jerk the person out.  I will just invent a remote control seat release on my stand.  Hope he's wearing a safety harness...

Inconvenienced for one day?  Nope, have to completely leave the area.  Depending on how hard a person hunts that could be months of inconvenience with scout time, hunt time, etc.

If there becomes a problem with individuals lacking common sense and they continue to sit in someone elses stand or crowd them out constantly the NDGF will have no choice other than to ban treestand or blind hunting on public land.  Seriously, the views of the minority will ruin it for the majority.  Happens all the time in our society.

I am gonna chime in on this one. 

Pigsticker:  I think your analogy about the trailer is dead on - same thing - exactly the same thing.

Swift:  I think you are dead wrong.  The only reason you didn't respond to pigsticker is because you can't think of a logic reason of how those 2 situations are different.  On several threads you always have the "who cares" attitude.  Someone drills holes 2 feet from your fish house and scares the fish off - who cares.  Someone is in your treestand that you worked to put up and clear shooting lanes and you have been looking forward to going out to it all day - who cares.  4-wheelers tearing around on the ice just missing your fishing equipment all day long - who cares.  You sound like the kind of guy who lets just about anyone walk all over you and you just put your tail between your legs and take it because who cares.
