    Default scouting results

    a friend of mine was scouting the other day. ran across a stand that i was unaware was on the lease.
    so we go check it out.. lo and behold we have a fence jumper.
    what would you do with the stand?

    I would inform the owner of the incident and take the stand down. I cannot stand "SNEAK" hunters. They are just as bad as poachers in my book.

    we took the stand down for certain. and the tree steps and the fancy boat ladder they had too.
    only i threw the boat ladder prtion over the fence where they crossed.
    maybe they will figger it out.

    Don't bet on it bud. Once a sneak always a sneak. Hopefully they will move off your lease, but they will move to somenone elses spot for sure.

    i would leave it alone, scout it everyday till you see someone in it, then when they are in it, sneak up and take the ladder down!! Or just show up with the local fish and game guys and nail them for it!!

    remove the stand and throw it over the fence attach a note that states why you moved the stand and if you see them or the stand again you will be contacting the DNR

    I'd leave a note on the boat ladder with your phone number telling them to call you and you'll give them their stand and climbing steps back.

    it was only about 10 ft up, small ladder and 3 steps.
    and i'd have to drive 30 minutes one way to do that. not really affordable

    I would take the stand and give him my number to pick up his ladder. When and if we meet I would have the game warden with me.
