I thought permanent tree stands were illegal in New Jersey. I have been scouting Colliers Mills and Manchester WMAs for a place to bow hunt next fall and come across quite a few permanent stands. What's does the regulations say? If it's illegal what are all these doing there?

They are illegal, you either saw very old ones, or if they are fairly new, some jerkoff bulit them. I normally take them down, no need to have jerkoffs in the woods

I'm not talking about old ones. I found most (new ones) in the Zone 17 section of Colliers Mills. I thought you were not even allowed to use screw-in steps (tree damage).

Yes permanent stands and screw in steps are illegal. If you leave your climber/portable on public property dont be surprised to find it missing the next time you go in. Earlier this year at a WMA I hunt I came across a ride on lawn mower that someone either left or put there as a prank. havent been back to that piece since before 6day but i wouldn't be surprised if it was still there.

I've found permanent stands in the woods as well, which are totally illegal. I've even met the guy who uses one of them and had mentioned that he is illegally hunting in the woods. He didn't care.

But to answer your question, permanent stands are illegal as are screw in steps.
