territory - a location someone else
has been using for years - there's a
chance the hunter(s) already using the
area won't appreciate your unattended
claim to it, especially if your stand interferes with their use of the area.
If someone bothers you while you're
in the act of hunting, that can be
construed as hunter harassment. But
if someone uses the tree next to your
tree stand, or disassembles the stand
and uses the tree it was
attached to before you
get to the location, that's
the law of the woods,
first come, first served. If
you harass that hunter
while he or she hunts,
you're actually in violation of the law. In fact,
although it might not be
ethical, another hunter
may legally use your tree
stand on state land if
he or she climbs into it
before you do on the day
you plan to hunt.
Given the related
problems associated with
leaving a tree stand on state lands, it
becomes obvious that the risk of loss or
problems is greater than some realize.
Couple that with the problem of abandonment of tree stands on state lands,
and it becomes clear that tree- stand
concerns have become more prevalent.
Both agencies would prefer hunters leave public lands with what they
brought with them daily. But it's understood that not everyone who hunts
is comfortable using a climbing tree
stand, or physically capable of carrying
in a tree stand or ladder stand daily.
That's why the tree stand exception
is in place. But a growing number of
8

hunters leave behind hang-on and
ladder stands on state lands after the
close of hunting seasons and they're
damaging trees - the trunk is forced
to grow over tightened cables and
straps - and interfering with forest
management operations. Thousands
of tree stands are left unattended on
state lands and hundreds are being
confiscated annually. It's a trend that
needs to be reversed.
Constructed tree
stands - nailed or
screwed into living
trees - on state lands
also continue to be a
problem. These stands
are an eyesore in the
woods, often cause irreversible damage to
trees and have been illegal for years. If caught
using or building a tree
stand that has been
nailed or screwed to living trees - regardless
of whether you built
it - you are in violation
of the law and may be
subject to a fine. You may use a tree
stand that is lashed to a living tree,
but again, you need to remove it or
disassemble it at the conclusion of
season, and if someone beats you to the
location, it's a first-come, first-served
situation.
Penn's Woods is a big place and
there's room for all of us to hunt. So if
you hunt state lands, use tree stands
legally and responsibly. Report illegally constructed tree stands - as you
would salt and mineral blocks - and
stands left behind or abandoned. Every
time one of us does, hunting gets better
for everyone.
