This tweet by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (@OKWildlifeDept) has gone viral: This “tree stand” was discovered on public land in McIntosh Co. by Warden Rowland. Not only is this EXTREMELY NOT SAFE, it is EXTREMELY NOT LEGAL.
Not Safe: The chair was attached to the tree by just 4 small screws!
Not legal: In Oklahoma (and many other states) it’s illegal to drive nails or screws into a live tree on public land.
In a related tweet after posting the chair in the tree the ODWC said: We are hosting a hunter safety class specifically for adults. Please sign up, some of you really need it.
