The stand was placed as a distraction - and it looks like it will work better than ever expected.

I've dealt with this for the last several years with my neighbor. It got pretty bad for a while when he hung several stands on the proper line and he screamed at my brother for shooting deer close to his property, not even on his property. Eventually he finally started hunting the rest of his property and not on the line all the time, which helped both of us. His stands were in horrible locations and spooked most of the deer in the area. And by ignoring him for couple years it never really turned into anything serious and now we both get to enjoy hunting more. Just don't make a real big deal about it, don't willingly let him shoot deer off your property, but don't do anything like hang a stand right there as well or anything else.

Get over it. Work with the dude. It's only hunting and it's suppose to be fun.

Man! I thought this thing would’ve died down by now. The guy has done nothing illegal whether it his land or his lease, at worse he made a bad judgment call on stand placement. It’s time to put on the big boy pants and go talk to the guy. But you need to be civil about it because if you go with an attitude you’re only going to make things worse. Surely you two can come to some agreement that will satisfy both of you.

Although I don't lease land I do own land. Our neighbors hunt and so do I. We all have a deal. We let each other know where we will be hunting and try to not get in each other's way. If there is a hot spot we take turns. Yes, we hunt on each others land. It all works out in the wash.

i had the same problem. i told them that if i find signs of them shooting on my property i would get the DNR involved and that they were not allowed to track at all no matter what. so far i havent had a problem.

this is what i'd do. most people (not all), are decent folks. if you're nice, they'll usually reciprocate. and if it does work out then you've gotten a little extra ground for the cost of your lease. if not, then put a stand perpendicular to his, directly in line with him and smoke anything decent that walks by.

We have 80 acres here in Michigan my family owns. We have had 2 box blinds on the two highest hills on the property for many years. This year a nabor that has a couple acres set a tree tent blind on the property line facing our land at some apple trees. We did not like it but really you cant do anything about it.

If i was the guy on the other property I'd be waiting for the day you shot one and wanted to track it on my land, and hoping it's a whopper buck.

I'm all about being friendly and neighborly and that's what I'll try to do, but if he can't see that his stand is in a place that will cause tension, then other tactics will have to be considered.
Tread carefully. Hunter harrassment laws would apply to a lot of those "other tactics." Plus, he could probably find many ways to mess up your hunting.
