This fairly new climber is for sale:

524781_10200722327049245_789393603_n.jpg


I took it off one of my trees in a location I hadn't been on in a while - I hunt from a ground blind and have no use for it - it's in great shape, I'm guessing about 2 or 3 years old, no rust and the foam padding is still great.

It's in my shed now waiting for anyone that might be interested.

I was riding down the power line and instead of turning right like I normally do and run up the property line, I decided to edge down a steep riven just to see if I could get across the creek/run off - went down the slop about 25 yards and poof there it was - I almost fell off the wheeler - I'd have never have thunk someone would be seeking that far down to hunt -

He'll be surprised when they return in the fall :)

We found two stands stolen off our farm and found a lock on stand over looking a creek on our property about 200 yards inside the fence so he knew good and well he was on our property.

There obviously not trying to be sneaky about it if they left the stand on the tree. At least you can make some money off their stupidity

Hows this for ballsy trespassers. A couple years ago I had a two man ladder stand in our beanfield. My son and I went to hunt it one morn, and it was gone ! Later that morn, we noticed it was in the other end of the field. Their 4wheeler tracks showed where they had driven to/from the stand, then back to a neighboring subdivision :(

Out of curiosity, what would yall do if you caught a trespasser on your land? I dont say that to imply anything, just wondering what actions yall would take. Im not a land owner yet but I would think that were I to find someone on my property doing something they shouldnt be doing (being on my property without permission is bad enough)that I would get awfully irate and perhaps even a little "confrontational."

It would depend on the situation - if they knew I knew there were there - that would be one thing - I never walk/patrol my land without being armed - never know when you're gonna up on a meth head or something.....sad as that is ....

In this situation....had it been during the season, and they didn't know that I knew, I'd have called TWRA/Sheriff and let them handle it -

In this case - the person that I believe this belongs to moved out of the 'subsidized' home that they were renting 'in the middle of the night' - and I figure he just forgot about it - he's gone now, so, nothing to do -

Yeah, it's amazing how some people can be so bold as to put up a stand on private property and think nobody will ever find it. If I find one, I might do what you are doing but my 1st gut reaction is to shoot holes all over the frame with a rifle and leave it there with a "No Tresspasing" sign hanging from a rung of the ladder. That's what I did last year when I found a spot where somebody had been sitting against a tree and a decaying deer carcass was laying nearby with the head sawed off. I nailed a "No Tresspasing" sign to the tree he had been leaning against and then nailed some of his trail marker tape above the sign. I wanted him to know that his little "Secret spot" wasn't so secret. I never saw any evidence of anybody around there again.
