Deer Stands Getting Too Swanky?
Well, Montana, you'll be ready for deer hunting this fall, right? It sound like deer stands are becoming a "fashion" competition in Minnesota. I don't think they're concerned about the legalities of it, but one Minnesota land commissioner is just amazed at some of the elaborate tree dwellings he's seeing in the Minnesota trees. "Mansions" he calls them. He's seeing stairways, decks, shingled roofs, commercial windows, insulation, propane heaters, carpeting, lounge chairs, generators...one deer stand found on county land in the trees was an 18-by-20 foot cabin! Guess the days of a few boards nailed into the tree to see above the brush are going by the wayside. What do you do? Are you still old school? DB
