South China woods on rt 3Contributors to this thread:
I live in south China Maine and i see alot of wood that have atv trails with no signs saying no hunting i want to hunt deer with a treestand but don't want to get myself in trouble. So my question is who or how do i find out if it's ok to hunt there on rt 3

Go to the town office and find out who owns the land then ask for permission to hang a stand and hunt there.. LISTEN UP PEOPLE.... Down load the hunting laws and regulations for the State of Maine. It gives All info what you CAN AND CAN'T do.
Good advice regarding need to know the regs but the regs definately do NOT have 'all info' and neither are they written in a particularly user-friendly way for finding specifics. Also, be aware that it's better to use the on-line regs as the printed rule books are not always up-to-date (i.e., the dates and times aren't always correct in the 2018-2019 rulebook). Apparently proofreading them isn't a priority before printing.
See the post here on hunting public land, it has some useful info on treestand use.
