I will start off by saying that I am not looking to start a conversation (argument) about whether or not trail cams or tree stands should be used or left in place throughout the hunting season. What I am interesting in hearing is what the etiquette is when hunting around said items. I hunt from the ground and don't use either and because of that I am unsure what the common code of conduct is when you run into either. I spend as much time as possible scouting pre-season (public land) but a fair amount of time when I go to hunt an area or water hole that I have been watching I run into trail cams, stands or both. My question is to those that use this equipment. If I come into an area that is set up this way and there is no one there can I sit the spot? A follow up to that question is, if I do hunt the area and the owner of the equipment comes in after me, am I obligated to move out? In the past I have just moved onto another area if I see equipment but it is getting harder to find a good water source that is not being monitored. I don't always have the time to hike out far enough to avoid someones set up. I don't want to ruin my day out or anyone else's by getting into a conflict. What are your thoughts on this?
