    If you hunt there enough I am sure you will run into him… Sit in his stand..I am sure if he comes up yall will get it worked out one way or the other..

    x2 that is my take as well and a quiet call to the land owner while you are on stand is a sure fire way to get DNR involved quick fast and in a hurry is my experience. You will also know for a fact which direction said person is using to gain entry/exit from the stand as well as he will have a flashlight or if in daylight will be walking in so you can see him. Be sure to take a picture of this person with your phone as well to clearly show evidence he was using the stand. This will help the landowner and you out.

    :D I am being quite difficult! There is all ways two sides to every story. I just felt that Jeff was going way overboard to keep this hunter from HIS deer that is all. I hate tress passers more than most I feel as I have had trouble with this in the past. I also think it is sexist to think that the wife of the property has no say in the use of this property. I know you are older than me and being 60 you grew up in a slightly different era, but I feel that the wife owns the land just like the man. Did the wife give someone permission, who knows it is possible. Does the farmer have a son or grandson who just took up hunting, who knows. The one thing I do know is nothing is certain. I also know that taking something that does not belong to you is theft. I like Erics comment about taking it to the sheriff to be picked up by the tress passer, which would remove the chance of being charged. What about putting up a game camera to oversee the stand location. I ended up installing a servailance system ran of two deep cycle batterys and a converter with a solar charger. I was able to download to my computer from 500 feet away 72 hour continuous video. which worked very well. I did find it funny that his original tress passer claim was not on the land he had permission to hunt. Sorry to piss you off but I do like to argue [=}=]

    I agree – seems this guy thinks he is good because IF he came and installed another stand after he was torn down seems very bold to me especially knowing someone is on to you – bring a side arm when you hunt jeff!

    My Buck killing skills are sick – too bad there not contagious!!!

    I am really contemplating that (even though its illegal). I am going to be down there tomorrow for gun season, so I’ll already have a firearm with me. But packing a Glock in the backpack seems like it may be a decent idea.

    A couple of years ago a friend got permission to hunt a piece of property… one day while he was going out there he saw a truck with a trailer parked on the other side. He called the landowner to ask about it and he said “I havent given anyone permission besides you… Please ask them to leave”. My friend approached the “Trespassers” to give them the message. Turns out they actually had signed a lease agreement with the landowner’s Father as he was the true “owner” of the property… The guy my buddy got permission from was the custodian of the land for his dad. Neither the father or the son knew of the other one giving permission for hunting rights to the property and it was a big misunderstanding. In this situation my buddy just took his stands down because he didnt feel it was right for him to hunt a piece of property that someone had leased. [=}=]

    Im with the rest on here… take a picture of this bozo walking in to his stand and call the landowner when he shows up… Confrontation on this would probably be a bad deal… if this idiot persists and causes any trouble I’d just back off and find another hunting spot.

    Either the guy is very bold as stated before or he’s confident he’s done no wrong. If you meet the guy maybe a simple showing of the property lines would be all it takes. Best of luck.

    Leave a note withyour name and cell number, cut chains and drag stand out. If he’s legit he will call you. You said the land owner had given no one permission, so he’s not legit.

    If you don’t have permission, you shouldn’t touch that stand.

    Did you read the post?? The land owner told him to take the stand down!
