    I went hunting today on a lease I have in Lee County.It got windy and I decided to walk the property boundries and to my disbelief I found a nice brand new ladder stand.Its on the Lee /Harnett line if you read this and its yours you have 24 hours to move it or it will be mine.I hate to be like that but I don't tresspass on your land so stay off mine. If it was on the boundry line it would not bother me as much but its only 50 yards from my lock on and well onto my lease.I really hope to catch you in it though.Then you can deal with the man.

    DANG
    Dang Coldfeet that is not good. I would leave the guy a letter telling him to take down the stand or you will be happy to.. I hope you work it out and be safe.

    Same Here
    I have the same problem at 1 of my spots...I think I ran my mouth about where I killed my 8 at too much but whats the Big deal? He's Dead and you can't go in there and kill him again!!!His stand is Right on the line BUT...His Corn Pile is on me...He even went through the trouble of blowing out paths right into the Cut-Over that's on me!!! A friend of mine at work found a NEW Summit Viper yesterday on him and he took it and same as you...He left a Note saying 'Show yourself if you want the stand back' If not he offered to sale it to me for $50 because he doesn't use climbing stands!!!Some people have a big set of B*lls to just hunt where they want...I didn't have any pictures in a week and that makes me wonder if someone deleted the Card...Just never know I guess

    MAYBE THIS WILL HELP
    Hey cold, I had sort of the same problem a couple of years ago. The stand was on my side of the line looking into the cutover I lease, and they put corn about 50 yards on my lease in front of the stand. I confronted the owner of the stand and he said there was nothing I could do about it. I called our wonderful wildlife officers and they said that with the stand on the line that they couldn't do anything and as for them putting corn out on my side that I had to call the sheriff department about that. Well I took care of the problem my self and since then they moved the stand about 50 yrds back on there property and they cant see down that lane now. I bought one of those big tarps and strung it from trees that where about 15 yards in front of there stand on my side to where they couln't see, I would have loved to seen the look on his face when he got in the stand and seen that..lol.

    Trespassers
    We have had a problem with a guy trespassing on us for a few years now it started with him baiting on our side of the creek because he has a box stand right on the edge of the creek on his side then when my land was logged and we could see him coming across on to our land have called the game warden but of course they are no help (big surprise) he even shoots deer with a gun during bow season and they wont even do anything bout that and iam not real big on walking up on somebody with a gun and dont know were they are at cause he dosent have a stand up because it would get ugly if he pointed a gun at me so idk what were going to do but like I told my dad iam fed up with it

    WOW!!!
    LOL @ Earlyriser...Big Blue tarp LOL...I have heard a Big Bag of Hair will work to keep deer away from a area but I dont know about the Moth ball and Irish Spring Soap Myth because I have tried Both and they started shooting more than what they were LOL...Bottom Line is We as Sportsman need to Respect each other!!! Don't get me wrong, It makes me cringe when a shot goes off so close to me that I jump but I just tell myself that it could be a Coyote ETC and every Nice Buck that I would shoot is still alive anyway...Man, A Box Blind? Thats Crazy!!! Some Guys just have a Huge Pair I guess to Go through the trouble of Building a Box Blind on Private land....Another thing that makes me go HMMMM LOL

    Big Blue Tarp
    Actully GT, I was nice and the tarp was camo....lol. I havent had anymore problems with the guy since then, I guess he figured if I went through the trouble of hanging a tarp in a tree then he had better quit...lol. But it is ashamed that the wildlife officer will not help u, thats what they are there for. You can be a law abiding hunter and they want to check every little thing but if you break the law they have nothing to do with you, they must think you are crazy so they are not going to mess with you. Makes no sense to me.

    wildlife officers
    JUST A COMMENT ON THE WILDLIFE OFFICERS. THERE ARE LAWS AND THEY ARE ONLY ABLE TO DO WHAT THEY ARE ALLOWED TO DO BY THE LAW. AND THE WAY I LOOK AT IT IF IM NOT BREAKING ANY LAWS THEY CAN CHECK ME ALL THEY WANT TO. USUALLY THE ONES THAT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THEM CHECKING THEM ARE DOING SOMETHING THEY DONT SUPPOSE TO DO. AND FOR THE WAY HE HANDLED IT LOL I THINK THATS GREAT. YOU TALKED TO HIM LIKE AN ADULT AND DIDNT DO ANYTHING STUPID. YOU ASK THE WILDLIFE OFFICER WHAT IF ANYTHING HE COULD DO. AND THE TARP. THATS PRICELESS. A GOOD IDEA WITHOUT LOOSING YOUR HEAD AND THEN YOU POSSIBLY GETTING INTO TROUBLE FOR SOMETHING YOURSELF...I WOULD HAVE JUST LOVED TO SEE THE OTHER GUYS FACE AND REACTION. PEOPLE WHO KEEP COOL HEADS USUALLY COME OUT ON TOP. JUST MY 2 cents and sorry for the rant on the officers but iv heard that alot over the years. And just like cops alot of people give them bad raps and if people would just stop and think before they react or actually knowing the laws about things people wouldnt say or do the things they do..lol ok im done. and im neither a cop or wildlife officer lol

    WHAT I WAS TOLD..
    Don't get me wrong, I respect the wild life officers and what they do. I hunt and fish and do it all legally. I was told they have more authority than a regular officer of the law. But they can't do anything about trespassing even if you have proof and it has to do with hunting. I am just wondering if we have to call the sheriffs department then what are they there for beside making sure kills are legal and that your license are good. I am not bad mouthing them just a simple question, I understand they have to abide by certain rules but you would think if someone called them about trespassing they could check it out, I mean they can ticket you for not having a signed paper with the land owners permission to hunt there land, so wouldn't that fall under trespassing in their book?

    Chain It!
    I would get a cable lock....lock it to the tree and leave a note. That way they'll have to call you to get it and you haven't moved it. You just put a cable lock on your tree and somehow the stand got locked with it....lol!

    gooa idea
    viper that was a good ideal but the property owner made me take it down.Now if the hunter finds me I will give it back !I've had tree stands come up missing and know its no funny thing! But land was posted and is marked in purple paint every 25 to 50 yards
