    What would you do

    Went into check on one of my stands today I've had the stand in erected for 3 yrs it was due for new strap this yr. But on my way in I come across a stand that looks just like mine only 45 yards short of my spot I continue to my spot only to find the stand gone, I return to the stand and find a piece of my old strap on the ground the pieces of the cross ties on the ladder,. So some one cut or shot my masterwork python cable and move the stand that close...wtf? I climb up and repo my stand. Wth is wi th people today?

    I'm assuming it is on private land?

    If so, ask the landowner if they gave somebody else permission. Maybe that person thought they had exclusive permission and assumed it was an old stand.

    Only thing I can think of is some idiot probably thought it was abandoned.
    Cant see any other reason why someone would steal a stand only to put it so close to where it was.

    Jeez, I've had the same stand on state land none-the-less for the last four or five years and hasn't been touched. Maybe I'm just lucky.

    I thought we weren't allowed to leave stands on state land from year to year?

    Maybe but you would think in good near great shape stand secured with masterlock python that someone wanted to keep that stand safe?

    That sucks, whoever did that is someone I would not want to hunt anywhere near. I'd pack up and find a different spot. You could drop a deuce at the base of their tree on the way out.
