    I can tell you what I would do (on the internet) but you'd have to call me for the truth. Don't want that in writing.

    Is the stand on private land where only you are allowed to hunt? On private where others also have permission to hunt?

    Or is this a stand you put up and leave on public lands?

    I would not be happy in any scenario but the way I handled it would greatly depend on these answers.

    We've had it happen on bait sets a time or 2. Mostly the guys were apologetic, and left. Usually if we knew someone found them, we packed in a chain saw for the last hunt, and moved on. Public land is public land, the guys that irritate me are the ones that try to buffalo every one else into not using an area.

    It is public land and he is using your private property that you left there. I would approach him in a firm but friendly manner and ask him to not use it again. Then let him decide where the confrontation went from there. If it got heated I would remind him that his truck is probably parked on public access and he probably would not like it if you set up camp in it.
