Sounds like this is your first year at this tract? Maybe all the past Hunters haven't been notified. I'd leave notes saying they will be removed before Muzz Season.
It is. If it were my property they would already be gone. The landowner seems pretty ticked about it and I am the first person in 15 years that he has let hunt. Hope this doesn't ruin it for me.

I think this is a great opportunity to sit down and find out from the owner how *he* wants you to be an extension of him when on his property. Clarity is an awesome thing, and I bet he appreciates someone who can be his eyes and ears in places he probably never goes.

If you dont call them on it then they will keep on doing it. The ones i have confroted have taken their stands and not returned.

This. Really, how are they to know they are in the wrong if it is "just a mistake"? ;\)

You can contact your local LEO to pick it up from you when it is removed. Leave a note stating that the property was turned over to law enforcement and can be picked up from the local precinct

I've never taken the stands, but I don't own the land. I'll tell the landowner where there at and he usually takes them down and throws them in his barn. I've offered to sell them for him but I guess he doesn't care. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't cut em up and scrap him. He's a different character.

I'm under ORDERS on a friends farm to let him know where I see stands and if they aren't something he's put in I will be told to take them down. He will put them on another farm somewhere and use them I guess.

I cant tell you how many times I've had hunters, even hunters with kids in tow, walk by my stand on private property.. Every time, so far, I've calmly let them know they were trespassing - some say "we thought nobody hunted here" and some say, "I'm sorry, I thought I was on uncle bill-bob's land" which later I always find out this certain person they name doesn't even own any adjoining properties.

Honestly I would never hunt someone's property without permission. Some folks shoot 1st and ask questions later and learning right from wrong and the consequences of wrong at an early age has always lead me off the unapproved path.
Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.

If I'm leasing or own the property then yes I'm taking it, now I might leave a note telling them to come get it but they never do

I have amassed quite a collection of stands over the years left on my property

If I found stands on our property they would become my property, plain and simple. I would leave a note as other said, but would be very surprised if they where ever claimed. They would then be give to one of the many young hunters that I take to the woods.

On the other property I have to hunt I would check with the owner and do as advised.

If I ever found a stand on land that my family owned I would take it in a second. I guess I'd leave a note, but I've not come across that particular situation yet. This is the way I see it: They know they're hunting without permission and they don't care. The way to make them care is to hit em financially....a good stand can cost a pretty penny. Take it and maybe the don't hunt again.

Someone hunting your property when you don't know it can be dangerous. This past spring turkey season I had located a gobbler and had done a soft yelp once I get situated on the ridge. He gobbled and so I knew I was in business. Heard a hoot tube on an adjoining property. Gobbler responded. Heard the tube again closer. Gobbler responded. Finally I heard the tube on our property coming up the ridge towards me. I'd had enough at that point because if he fired close enough there's no tellin if I would've been in a bad position. So I made a really obvious and over-exaggerated hoot call and didn't hear a thing the rest of the day. I also didn't see the bird. I figure he realized that owl wasn't right after the last call I made. lol.

So, take the stand. Leave a note. Confront them....but find a way to make them realize hunting that property isn't worth it.
