A tree stand or ground blind on Park District public hunting areas is legal as long as it is portable and uses no nails, steps, or any other device placed or inserted into a tree. The tree stand may be installed from September 1st to the last day in February, annually and must have a tag with name, address, and phone number. If stand is not picked up, it will be confiscated and considered Park District property.
