Hey every one. I was wondering if you have left a tree stand on public land durning hunting season? Was it stolen ? Was someone sitting in it when you rolled up ? Good , Bad, ?

There is an entertaining thread on here that you need to read.  I can't remember what it was called but someone will link it

My hunting partners and I have more tree stands than we can count hung all
this state... This year was the first time we had one of our tree stands taken. It was crappiest one we have out there.  The dip sh!t who stole it got a 20yr old stand with a red boat cushion as a seat from our elk spot.

Some people’s children... but it’s the risk we take by leaving them hung up but it would be too much work to take in and out

I personally wouldn't care about a tree stand being up on public land. But the owner better not be upset if someone is hunting that same spot (not in the stand) when they get there. I can see someone claiming it's their spot because the stand is there. Nope. Public land. First person there gets the spot.

I always saw public land tree stands as someone being kind enough to hang a stand for the public to use. You would have to be a real low life to steal one though.

Ive left a few up over the season.  Usually in a pretty crappy holes in western WA where its thick and the only way to hunt it is in a stand, so the chance of someone finding one was very low.  I also hung them fairly high using 4 climbing sticks with as far as i could reach between them.
