When is it okay to remove someones tree stand?
When is it all right to take a stand? I have taken stands off of property they where not supposed to be on. I also think that if you find a stand on public land with no name on it, and it is after the deadline for removal that it is an abandoned stand and it is okay to take them. I always remove screw in tree steps from public property as they are not legal and as a member of the public that is partly my tree that is getting destroyed!We should wish to live in peace, If you starve, I starve, If you eat, I eat.

i dont know the law on this, but, if it were on private property, i would contact the CO and follow his direction....if on public land, i would contact the CO with the location of the stand/screw in steps, and have him remove the stand/screw in steps. unless you are a LEO, i would think removing someone elses property from public ground would not be legal, no matter how illegal the stand/screw in steps are.

I have to cry foul on the "that is partly my tree" crap. Are you really worried about the tree or getting the steps? The damage is already done to the tree. If you want to take the steps out and lay them at the ground then that's another story but I bet that's not what you mean.Bambi's mom was a management doe.

This is my take. If someone puts a stand on my property, I first take it town from the tree, and leave it there, so that they know that I know. If they leave the stand and don't take it out by the end of the season, then it is mine. Also, if they take it, and I find it elsewhere on the property, then I take it down and it is mine. I give everyone a strike, but after that, they are out.

If it was on my land or land that I was the only one with hunting permission I would take them down. I would okay it through the lanowner to see what he wanted done with the stands. When it come to public land, I would stay out of that fight. I have left my stuff on public lands before, not wanting to, but it made going in a little less dificult. If I ran up on someone elses stand on public property, I would just continue on hunting for another spot. If you take someones stand from a public track of land, then you stole it. What happens when that man walks up on you while you are doing this? If he doesn't ruff you up, then he can take legal action against you for the theft. It would be easier for someone to prove you were in the woods stealing, than it would for you to say it was illigally placed. Get a CO to do that, don't take the law into your own hands.

Finelydeerhunting, I agree with your comment.
Also, I'd say don't mess with anybody's junk on public land. Who knows, I might have gotten sick or something on the days i was planning on getting it out of there. I'd go with the "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" policy."I climbed to the top of the ladder of success only to find my ladder was on the wrong wall."--some guy somewhere.
