Florida Reminds Hunters to Remove Tree Stands
With the start of archery season a few days away in Everglades-area wildlife management areas, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reminds hunters to remove tree stands at the end of the season.
Abandoned tree stands present safety hazards. They also create debris and litter on public lands.
Florida law states that hunting equipment used during the season must be removed no later than one day after the season ends. Any tree stand left in Everglades, Rotenberger or Holey Land wildlife management areas after Nov. 15, 2011, will be subject to removal and disposal without notice.
