Treestands I would support this Bill but some modifications are needed. I would allow one or two stands to be left on public land with proper ID including a phone number. I would also add that the stand be actively used. Actively would mean that the user is active on this stand within 48 hours. So someone could not sit at their desk in Madison and have a stand in Jackson Co. While enforcement may be difficult most hunters would comply. It would also be a safety issue. A large percentage of Treestand accidents occur during set up and take down. This activity would probably take place in darkness to make it even more dangerous. It may also enhance the success of the hunt if I wasn't in the woods putting up and taking down stands twice a day or more. I've hunted public land for over 40 years and have never had a conflict with other hunters. If I set up a stand and find out someone else is already in the area I simply make a move. We also make our camp in the woods with a couple cabin tents and trailers for the gun season. We understand that someone could camp right next to us and could be a cause of conflict. Yet this has never happened to us in the over 40 years of camping in the Jackson Co. Forest. If I was camped for a week of bowhunting I should be able to leave my stand in the woods until I leave. As I mentioned earlier 4 stands up for the entire season is excessive in my opinion. One or two stands that are active would receive my support.
