Default What would you do?

If you came across this on private property? I got out of there as I had followed fresh footprints to it. I had passed it going up the ridge and must have spooked the guy out because on the way down on the other side I picked up his tracks and followed it here!!
I called the guy running the property and he said take it down and take it home!!. I left the guy a note letting him know I was there, but Im sure he was watching me seeing as how the tracks were very recent!! Ladder is about 20 yards away from feeder. Feeder is full!

If in fact it is a tresspasser's stand and feeder on private property, I would do what the guy running the property suggested and take "MY" new stand and feeder home with me.

Actually, my brother has found a couple of stands on our place and has either torn them down or taken them home.

He's probably spooked now, but the stand and feeder would be seized. My dad just found a nice rifle ladder stand on one of our farms.

I'm going to use it tomorrow for our last day of the season.

Even though the person doesn't have permission to be there I wouldn't take either.Once I notified the landowner or manager it would be up to them to either pull them and do with them what they want.
I would never feel good about taking someone's elses stuff even if they shouldn't be there.This is just my opinion.
