Seems like someone has taken it upon themselves to prep my stand for the season in their own way with what I would assume are intentions to hunt it....

Cleared an unnecessarily large path right to my tree, cut down limbs for more shooting lanes, and flipped the tree pegs upside down to make it harder to climb. 

Not thrilled at all as I had that stand exactly the way I liked it. Took all the pegs out of the tree but not sure there’s much else I can do to deter this individual. 

Oh the joy of public land!

On second thought - maybe not such a good idea.  Might be some crazy SOB with nothing to lose.

I have no words......

 

I can't imagine what would go through someone's mind just to assume a stand in the woods is theirs to hunt.  You have to know someone else is going to walk in on you one day.  Unbelievable and I would hope most are better than that.

Typical NJ scenario.  Can't even turn him in for cutting without getting caught yourself for using pegs.  Spot is ruined now IMO.  Find another and hang and hunt same day.

Unfortunately that close to a field on public land your gonna have company. Sucks

Yep company is one thing and is to be expected. I’m used to it. Hijacking someone else’s set is another.

Maybe it is a rookie hunter that you can give pointers to, might want to see if you can find out who it is.  Maybe you found yourself a new hunting partner.

Agreed. Might be a secret admirer of yours from the Party boat desperate to get your number!:laughing:... Sucks for sure. Bottom line its your,  stand so hunt it. When you run into Prince charming straighten him out. Possibly just an ignorant newbie.

Same thing every year. Jerk off alert.  I stopped hunting public land because of this stuff. Why anyone would want to hunt around someone else they don’t know is beyond me

On private land down here, you still have people you don't know trespassing and hunting around you :)
