Off-roaders Jailed in Minnesota Wetland Damage and Hunter Ha
I'm glad to see that this type of thing is finnaly being punished. It's too bad it has come to this. These young men should have been taught about caring for the land instead of destroying it. I wonder if any of them really knows how long it takes for wetlands to typically recover from this sort of activity. Maybe this will make others think twice about digging up the land with these vehicles. And don't get me wrong, there is a place for these vehicles, it's on a trail.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
