Portable tree stands need to be removed from county managed public land


Crow Wing County Land Services is reminding hunters that all portable tree stands or free standing stands must be removed from county managed public lands on Jan. 1.

The Crow Wing County hunting stand ordinance states portable tree stands must be removed no later than one day following the close of Minnesota’s big game hunting season, which ends on Dec. 31. Permanent hunting stands are also prohibited by the ordinance.
