Lake Shelbyville to auction confiscated tree stands

July 21, 2011 at 10:18 PM

Prairie State Outdoors

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a silent auction for 33 impounded deer stands and 11 sets of climbing sticks from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. July 30.

The auction will be held at the special events lot, across the street from Lake Shelbyville’s new Project Office adjacent to the Government vehicle compound. 

Twenty-eight of the tree stands are commercial models in good condition and include ladder stands, locking mechanisms, and climbing stands. 

During the past two years, 204 tree stands have been impounded on Lake Shelbyville for abandonment of personal property or failure to comply with posted restrictions. 

The remaining stands were either home-made or in poor condition and were destroyed due to safety concerns. 

Proceeds from the auction will help fund the Third Annual Youth Deer Hunt held in October and the 22nd Annual Disabled Deer Hunt held in November. 

Bidders will fill out a bid sheet with their contact information, the stand number(s) they are bidding on, the bid amounts, and a release of liability form.

Sealed bids will be opened Aug. 1 and the high bidder(s) awarded the stand(s). 

For more information on the silent auction or Lake Shelbyville’s Tree Stand Policy please call Park Ranger Brock Key at (217) 774-3951 Ext. 4 or visit http://www.mvs.usace.army.mil/Shelbyville/wildlife.htm.
