FWP Warden Frank Bowen reminds hunters that tree stands used for hunting and all other temporary structures must be removed from DNRC lands.
Temporary structures, such as tree stands, may be kept in place on un-leased DNRC State forested lands for 16 days in any 30 day period. No nails, spikes or screws of any type may be put into the tree, and no permanent structures are allowed. General Recreation road use rules apply (no off road use allowed to access a stand).
Tree stands may not be placed in any active timber sale area; if found, they will be removed in conjunction with the local game warden.
Hunters are urged to remove any existing stands.
