    I have just gotten permission to hunt a new piece of land, and i did a little speed scouting yesterday. The owner is not a hunter and told me no one has permission to hunt the property, but it has never been posted.

    I found a Newer ladder stand in one of the best wooded draws on the property.

    The owner says take it down. What do ya think.

    Think I'd let the land owner make that call.

    Take it down and post a note telling the owner where he can pick up his stand. If he never claims it, you have a freebie.

    Shoot it with a Rage therefore rendering it useless. :D

    Seriously though, I'd do what the landowner says.

    Take it down and take it to the landowner. Put up a note where he can get it.

    Agreed...take it down and leave a note. Leave the stand at the landowner's place just in case the trespasser has enough guts to come claim it. That way the landowner can tell him to stay off his property. If it goes unclaimed, enjoy using it.
