Someone tried hunting my stand opening day

I fold up my stand to the tree and cable it.these whiting guys will not think twice about sitting in your stand. And hunt over your bait if your not in it.one of the biggest culprits is a buddy of a local w&w member.

Me and the OP haven't always seen eye to eye over the years on NJH, or here. But I have to  agree 100% with him on this. Yes, it's public land. But if someone wanted to hunt the same area, they could either

A - set up their own stand

B - use a climber

C - hunt the ground

 

 

To me, I see this as some lazy hunters who didn't want to do any of that, and figured it's fine to just jump in someones stand. It's not right. If it doesn't belong to you, LEAVE IT THE   F   ALONE.

also people need to think. they see a tree stand up and the damn tree is growing around it. its clear the stand has been in that tree for YEARS. how are they suppose to know someone is still using it? or the orginal owner is still using it. 

all tree stands on public or state land should be removed at the end of the season. period.

Two sides to every coin... The lazy hunter that leaves his stand in the woods is destined  to have others use it. The choice you make when you leave it

IMO it's never ok to use or touch someone else's property. No 2 sides to that as far as I'm concerned.

I hope those kids are on this site and see that not every hunter treats people they you say you treated them. A couple young hunters who probably can't afford to buy stands and just leave them out on public land get cursed at by a guys who leaves his out all year and thinks that's ok.

maybe a more civil and respectful conversation would have been the adult thing to do. And we wonder why kids aren't getting into hunting.

Maybe they can hang out at the next BLM and Antifa protest, then loot a sporting goods store to steal their own stand. Because they need it.:popcorn:

I’ve found guys in my stand and have just let them hunt it. Yeah it’s my stand but I put it on public. That was back in the days of leaving stands behind. I try to keep my presence unknown. I’ve also had guys hunt my stands and leave a gut pile at the base of it. That pissed me off. I got his gutting knife he left behind though lol.

If we as hunters can't get along then why would we expect anything different from those opposed to hunting or anyone else for that matter? Really lighten up guys. The Country is about to go down a rat hole with this election and we as a group should have more solidarity.
