I found a stand a little while after that just inside my property line and may or may not have taken a chain saw to the tree just to drive the point home. Figured he got about $300 worth of mine and a really sore @$$, we broke about even. I killed a really nice 9pt that year despite all the shenanigans. Ended up finding a couple of button bucks that'd been either terrible shot with a bow and died on my side of the fence, or shot with a 22. I killed one really nice doe only to find she was all infected and gang-green in her backstrap and had been suffering for no telling how long. The warden was called in for that one too and no evidence means nothing could really be done. He was caught spot lighting a few wks later and had his atv, a nice rifle and some other gear seized. I wish I'd have been in town for the state auction a few months later and could've bought his gear at a much discounted price. "A little too spiteful maybe???"

Re: someone using your treestand

Had 3 guys take my double bull blind down and toss it in the brush once. Set their own blind in place of mine. It was 3 on 1 and getting ugly. I have a varied enough back ground that I felt reasonably confident they were going to lose this fight but man, we were a long way from nowhere and losing was not optional. I backed down. From then on I slept in my blind until I decided this crap was not worth it.

I had a tree on a migration trail I had set up well for sitting. Came in one morning and there was a guy, I knew who was, sitting there. We got into it but this group was ruthless. So I told everyone I knew about the area and showed another guy and his group how to hunt the migration trail a mile up from there. Ruined the hunt for this bad crew and I laugh everytime I go by the area and see the new crew screwing the bad crew. Makes me happy.

Confucious say...'The bigger gun always wins. Why, when on my property I'm carrying a rifle and a big bore sidearm too and the sidearm ain't loaded with round nose pills either.

You don't go to a firefight with a Bic lighter.

I laughed at the picture, I get folks venting, and I get folks defending private property. I worked with a guy that had friends and family closely involved in a well covered tree stand dispute, the ripples literally travel cross country. Be sure you're right, be sure it's worth it, be sure you win. Whatever you define a win to be.

Re: someone using your treestand

Leave and call police/warden.


I'd just moved from the area when this happened:

MPR: Hunter kills six, wounds two after tree-stand dispute

"Hunter kills six, wounds two after tree-stand dispute"

Wisconsin officials are trying to understand why a hunter opened fire on others hunters Sunday, killing six people and seriously wounding two. Many of the victims were related - all from around Rice Lake, Wisconsin. The suspected shooter is a St. Paul resident who's had minor brushes with the law, but nothing apparently that would predict such a violent encounter.


Birchwood, Wis. The shooting took place in a small township near the borders of four rural, wooded counties. During deer season the woods are crawling with people in blaze orange, and it's not unusual to hear of small disputes, over property lines or who owns what deer stand. But nothing has ever happened of this magnitude.
According to Sawyer County Sheriff Jim Meier, Chai Vang, 36, is accused of opening fire on a hunting party, killing six people and seriously wounding two others.
The dead include Robert Crotteau, 42; his son Joey, 20; Al Laski, 43; Mark Roidt, 28; and Jessica Willers, 27. Dennis Drew died of his wounds Monday night. Still hospitalized are Terry Willers, who was listed in critical condition, and Lauren Hesebeck, listed in fair condition.
Sheriff Meier say that the suspect was lost in the woods, and apparently wandered onto private property. There, he found and climbed into a deer stand. One of the property owners came by, spotted Vang in the stand and radioed back to his hunting party in a shack about a quarter of a mile away, asking who should be there.

The answer was nobody should be in the deer stand," Sheriff Meier said.
The first victim, Terry Willers, told the others on the radio, that he was going to confront the intruding hunter. He approached the intruder and asked him to leave, as Crotteau and the others in the cabin hopped on their all-terrain vehicles and headed to the scene.
"The suspect got down from the deer stand, walked 40 yards, fiddled with his rifle. He took the scope off his rifle, he turned and he opened fire on the group," Meier said.
There were two bursts of gunfire within about 15 minutes. Apparently three of the hunting party were shot initially. One was able to radio back to the others that they had been shot. The others soon were on their way, apparently unarmed, expecting to help their fellows. But the shooter opened fire on them too.
Meier says the weapon used was Chinese style SKS semi-automatic rifle. Its clip holds 20 rounds. When recovered, the clip and the chamber were empty. It's not clear whether any of the deer hunting party returned fire.
Chai Vang was taken into custody several hours later. He'd been identified by the ID number which Wisconsin deer hunters are required to wear on their backs.
Vang is reportedly a veteran of the U.S. military. He emigrated here from Laos. Sheriff Meier says Vang does appears to be mentally stable.
"From my dealings with him, he seems mentally capable of conducting his affairs. His criminal history is, I believe, there's a misdemeanor warrant for trespass out of a county in Minnesota, and he does have an entry in his file for an aggravated assault," he said.
