Archery stands in the Archery Only areas may be left up during firearm deer seasons. But, they may not be hunted from on a firearm deer day if they are less than 200 yards from an area open for rifle hunting. With the exception of archery deer stands, construction or placing of deer stands prior to proper registration is not permitted. Archery stands must be labeled with a tag stating the owner’s name, phone number and the words “Bow Hunter” or “Archery Stand”.
