Hunting Stands

Hunters may use portable blinds or hunting stands that do not damage live trees and that are removed at the end of the hunt. Portable stands are those that are chained, belted, clamped, or tied with rope and do no permanent damage. Below are some examples of hunting stands and blinds that are allowed.


Permanent blinds and stands are not allowed. They often cause damage to trees, and lead to other resource damage, including the cutting of timber for shooting lanes, cross-country travel by ATV’s, litter, and development of roads and trails.
Remember that no one has the right to attempt to reserve public lands for exclusive use through acts of implied ownership or intimidation.
