I have a tree stand about 1/2 mile in the woods. I know I have to take it down, but do I have to take it out of the woods, or can I chain to a tree and put it back up in September.

Bob,

I take it you are talking about public land?

On page 43 of the 2005 Michigan Hunting and Trapping Guide, it says: Scaffolds, raised platforms, ladders, steps and any other device to assist in climbing a tree cannot be placed on public lands any earlier then September 1, and must be removed by the day following the close of the last deer season in the area.

It says removed, so I would say no you cannot leave it out there at all.

Can't leave it on state land in any fashion for use or storage.
