uggs sale womens leggings are in style again

They come in different colors and patterns from a modest navy blue or black to a metallic snakeskin or flannel pattern. They are worn with running shoes and high heels, with sandals and Uggs. Like any garment, their attractiveness is debatable to some and unquestionable to others.

Fashion trends often resurface years after their initial conception. Wedges made a recent return on fashion runways, and chunky cocktail rings became a staple accessory to a new generation. Leggings are no exception. The difference in the resurgence of leggings is how they are being worn.

The trend has trickled down from the fashion editors of Vogue and svelte celebrity legs to retail giants such as Target and small towns across the country.

Some prefer them with a skirt or dress.

“I like to wear shorter skirts, and I like the style of sweater dresses and tunics with short skirts,” said Stefanie Veneziano, a junior international affairs and theater major at the University of Maine. “I won wear leggings if it warm. I have no problem in minus 10 [degree] weather wearing leggings, as long as I have boots and a thick coat.”

Would she wear leggings as pants?

“Only if I at the gym, or if the top I wearing covers me,” Veneziano said. “It looks awkward to wear a shorter top with leggings.”

“I think I wear them because they are soft and stretchy,” said Abbey Pelletier, a freshman at UM. Pelletier said she wears leggings two or three times a week. “I feel comfortable wearing them as pants because they are pretty thick and very comfortable. I guess you look a little better than wearing really baggy sweatpants every day.”

Wearing leggings as pants has sparked activity in fashion magazines and on the Internet in positive and negative ways. The first three lines of the manifesto read, “Let be clear. The wearing of tights as pants is an abomination. TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS.” The manifesto goes on to list ways in which tights as

pants are acceptable hair metal, ballet, etc and the website offers printable fliers with its logo: an equal sign with a slash through it sandwiched between the words “Tights” and “Pants.”

Heather van Frankenhuyzen, the owner of Bella Luna, a women clothing boutique in downtown Bangor, said her store carries a significant stock of leggings and thinks they are a great staple to have on hand. As pants, van Frankenhuyzen isn a fan.

“I really don like leggings as pants and sometimes feel the need to tell people they are not. But I try to restrain myself. Fashion is, after all, individual expression,” she said.

Van Frankenhuyzen, who holds an Associate of Applied Arts in Fashion Design degree from the Art Institute of Seattle in Washington, says leggings have changed in various ways,
ugg bailey button bomber leggings are in style again
including the materials used to make them.

“The big difference between the leggings of the and the leggings of today has to do with technology,” she said. “Back then, they really didn have the synthetic fabrics that wear and feel like ours today. So often in the the leggings tended to be slightly baggy or loose.”

Leggings have a history extending back to the 15th century, which makes their current use even more interesting. During the Renaissance, men wore stockings known as hose or chausses that were similar to tights and made out of sheep wool.

American Indians wore long buckskin leggings that resembled boots, and cowboys wore buckskin to protect their legs from the elements.

Before switching to combat boots during World War II, United States soldiers wore a form of leggings known as puttees to keep their legs dry and to provide basic ankle support.

In the mid 19th century, women in France began wearing a form of leggings known as pantalettes, which most resemble modern leggings. Pantalettes, worn under skirts to fully cover the woman, were often made of linen and eventually found their way into British and American dressing rooms. While pantalettes were the grandmother of modern leggings, they looked nothing like them. Pantalettes resembled a pair of oversize linen pajama pants with lace.

Leggings worn with skirts and simple shoes became mildly popular in the 1960s. In the American designer Patricia Field claimed she had designed the modern legging.

The 1980s transformed leggings from a practical garment worn by both sexes into a skintight garment worn, well, whenever. Originally worn as exercise clothes, leggings became “street wear” and were worn with long sweaters and skirts. Clothing stores such as American Apparel and Urban Outfitters became popular sellers of the product, and it hard to find a retailer that doesn sell them today.

The evolution of leggings, from cowboys and dainty French women to gyms and grocery stores, could be approached from different perspectives. Does a shift from utilitarian to aesthetic say anything about either generation? Do leggings as pants suggest high physical self esteem among women or just a need to follow trends?

“I do think some girls wear them [as pants] to show off their figure, but I also think some wear them because they are really comfortable,” said Pelletier.

Van Frankenhuyzen said, “I will admit that some girls can pull them off as pants, but they are few and far between, and honestly, who really wants something that shows every dimple or jiggle? Just wear a longer shirt when in doubt.”

short ugg Legendary UM chemistry professor Garon Smith delivers final

Hundreds of giddy kids raced around the University of Montana Oval on Thursday evening stuffing liquid nitrogen soaked Cheetos into their mouths and laughing wildly as they exhaled the resulting white “smoke” out of their mouths and through their nostrils in big, thick puffs.

It was all part of legendary UM chemistry professor Garon Smith’s final fiery lecture, as he is retiring after 24 years.

Members of the UM Honors Student Association convinced Smith to present one of his famous chemistry presentations an hourlong spectacle of fire, ice, smoke, explosions and humor for the benefit of the campus community. A huge crowd gathered with lawn chairs and blankets an hour before the show to watch, and Smith who wore his famous wizard cloak and hat did not disappoint.

“Usually, you say ‘chemistry’ in a conversation and everyone goes ‘Whoa,'” Smith told the crowd as he mixed up one of his concoctions. “But I’ve been fascinated with it my whole life. I always wanted to grow up to be a wizard. Nobody told me that you couldn’t be a professional wizard. So, I just had to invent a job for myself. So what I’m going to do is share with you good friends that have made for a fabulous career. So with a cart full of plastic bins, I have been all over the world. So you can be a professional wizard.”

To prove he has wizardly powers, Smith first unveiled his “ink spell,” where he has timed a certain mixture of chemicals so precisely that a beaker of clear fluid turns black as ink after exactly 17 seconds, right when Smith finishes saying one of his patented spells, to the delight of the audience.

“Professor Garon Smith, aka G. Wiz, is among the most engaging and entertaining instructors that the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the University of Montana have ever seen,” said Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry professor and chair Christopher Palmer.

Smith has instructed about 20,000 college students in introductory chemistry, and because he travels to other schools to give presentations he has entertained and educated 100,000 younger students. Since he took over UM’s chemistry course for applied science majors in 1994, class enrollment has expanded exponentially from about 400 to 700 students each fall semester. Smith vowed to accommodate every student who wanted to take his class, so he consequently estimates that 20 percent to 25 percent of all UM students have taken at least one of his courses.

“What a lot of tests to grade,” he said. “But what a privilege.”

Smith has won multiple local and national awards for both teaching and outreach, including 2014 Best UM Professor in the Missoulian’s readership poll and the 2008 Professor of the Year award from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. He was also named Most Inspirational UM Teacher in 2004.

“G. Wiz continued to make the whole semester interesting, from blowing things up in the lecture halls to making liquid nitrogen Cheetos, some of the reactions you’ll see tonight, to giving little tidbits on bomb sniffing bumblebees to how snowflakes are formed,” she said.

Smith will continue to give presentations to schools, and he is producing an educational software package and manual to help teach principles of aqueous chemistry. He is also writing a book, “G. Wiz’s Book of Spells,” to help teachers of all levels include live demonstrations in their classroom teaching. The book will have recipes, performance suggestions, safety precautions and explanations on how to deliver science concepts to students from kindergarten to graduate school. He will also be nominated for professor emeritus status this spring so he may stay active at UM and perhaps transform his UM courses into digital materials that can be used by other educators.

“At the same time, he has applied his knowledge and understanding of chemistry, the environment and human nature to address multiple critical environmental issues and problems in the Missoula Valley and beyond,” Palmer added.

Smith has served as an ASUM adviser since 2007 and sits on the local Board of Health, the Air Pollution Control Board and the Water Quality District Board.

Smith finished his presentation with a bang Thursday, lighting off 24 artillery shells that echoed off the campus buildings to commemorate each year of his career at UM.

“It would be hard to find another professor that is as incredibly passionate about teaching as G. Wiz,” Richards said. “There’s something about learning from a professor that is excited about their subject. It starts to grow on you and makes you enjoy the class more and more. G. Wiz has shown countless students that chemistry can be interesting and fun. The University is losing one of the best professors it has ever known. It will be a sad day tomorrow in the Social Sciences building when he finishes his last Chem 121 lecture. But we will always remember him as the man in the wizard robe and his magic flying hat.”

Editor Note: Second life. It can represent a chance to do over. To reset and refocus your life. To shake off the past and give yourself an opportunity to change and grow. In our series, Second Life, we took a look at how those in the small business world, out of necessity or desire, reach beyond their comfort zones to re create themselves and their world. These stories celebrate those who saw potential in being something else or creating something that wasn and were brave enough to take the plunge into the deep, dark waters of entrepreneurship.

TRURO As Downtown Truro has grown and evolved over the years, two legendary buildings have taken on a second life in a very different form.

While the old Warehouse Bars buildings haven changed much on the outside, the sights and sounds of the once booming nightlife hotspot has been replaced by hot coffee, hot shaves, new age learning and extreme sports.

bailey button chestnut uggs legacy may be at stake in appeal

Tom Brady grew from a sixth round draft choice into one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. Off the field, he’s a celebrity with a supermodel wife and lucrative marketing deals.

All that has made the New England Patriots superstar the object of admiration and respect to some, jealousy and enmity to others.

Goodell’s decision upholding, reducing or eliminating the punishment won’t likely cause major changes in perceptions of a four time Super Bowl champion perceptions enhanced during a stellar 15 year NFL career, yet sullied in one game in which he may have knowingly used deflated footballs.

“He is a guy that I have said for a long time is the best in the business,” said Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethslisberger, who faces the Patriots in the season opener Sept. 10, when Brady’s suspension is set to start. “I have a lot of respect for him on the football field.”

Buffalo coach Rex Ryan, a longtime nemesis, says Brady’s legacy hasn’t been tarnished.

“I just know the kind of quarterback that he is and what he’s meant to me personally,” Ryan said, smiling and sighing about Brady’s success against him when he coached the New York Jets. “I’ve got nothing but respect for the guy.”

Companies the boyishly handsome 37 year old has represented in stylish ads Under Armour sportswear, UGG footwear, Movado watches haven’t abandoned him.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank sat with him at ringside at the Floyd Mayweather Manny Pacquaio fight May 2 in Las Vegas, where Brady flew by private jet after attending the Kentucky Derby. Less than six weeks later, Plank said at an appearance in Boston, “Tom has our undying support.”

On Memorial Day, fans held a “Free Tom Brady” rally in a parking lot outside Gillette Stadium.

Backers of other NFL teams may not be as supportive.

“People would like to know: yes or no,” said Marc Ganis, president of sports business consulting firm SportsCorp. “If it’s no, then clear the guy. And if it’s yes, then nail him.”

The 243 page Wells report issued May 6 said Brady “was at least generally aware” of plans to prepare balls below the NFL mandated minimum of 12.5 pounds per square inch. Wells defended that in a conference call a few days later.

But in a 16 page report this month, the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, said, “The Wells report conclusions are likely incorrect.”

Goodell will reach his own conclusions.

“If you’re not from the area, the Patriots are an amazingly easy team to hate,” said Adam Brasel, an associate professor of marketing at Boston College. “The actual severity of the punishment is not going to change people’s perceptions. They’ve already made up their minds.”

The hyper competitive Brady could challenge Goodell’s ruling in court.

“If there was some clear exculpatory evidence, Brady’s reputation gets even more enhanced,” said Ganis, who grew up a Jets fan and is based in Chicago. “He will have taken these terrible accusations and didn’t do what most people do, which is find the easiest, most convenient way out with the least amount of disruption to their lives.”

ugg coupons Lee Meltzer

MISSOULA Lee Meltzer, 64, of Missoula, passed away Friday, Oct. 11, 2013, near the old Milltown Dam site on the Clark Fork River of natural causes during a float fishing trip with his son, Max A. Meltzer. Max performed CPR on his father and contacted emergency personnel, who responded quickly to assist. Lee’s last day was spent doing exactly what he loved best, enjoying an urban float from Turah to Missoula with his son in the Montana outdoors.

He was born on April 25, 1949, in Missoula to George C. “Sonny” Meltzer and Virginia Lee Rinke Meltzer. His primary home was on Jackson Street in the lower Rattlesnake, where he attended Prescott Grade School and went on to Hellgate High School, graduating in 1967. A football player for Hellgate High School, Lee was named to the all state team for both offense and defense, and played in the annual East West Shrine Game in Great Falls. Sonny was a Missoula police officer and a deputy sheriff. Virginia was a seamstress and worked at Westerner’s. She survives her son. The family had a cabin on Seeley Lake during Lee’s youth and many happy summers were spent there boating, water skiing, hunting and fishing. Lee learned to scuba dive at Seeley Lake, a skill he would use later in law enforcement. He met his future wife, Rosalie Roberta Rose at Seeley Lake. As a young boy, he learned to snow ski at both Marshall Mountain and Missoula Snowbowl.

In 1967, Lee began studies at the University of Montana and pledged Sigma Nu fraternity. Many of his lifelong friends were his brothers from Sigma Nu and a group of them enjoy an annual get together in northwestern Montana for golf and fishing. Marine Corps Reserve Platoon Leaders Class, graduating from the Junior Course in the summer of 1968, when he was meritoriously promoted to the rank of lance corporal. He was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps Reserve in 1969 due to a previous football Injury. Lee left college to become a Missoula County deputy sheriff. At age 50, he returned to the University of Montana and finished his bachelor’s degree in history. He loved studying history and continued throughout his life. And, of course, he was an avid Griz fan.

Lee worked at the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office from 1970 until 1971, when he joined the Missoula Police Department. He served the city and county of Missoula for 20 years. His favorite experience was “walking the beat,” where he said he enjoyed meeting people. He retired in 1991 as the assistant chief of police for Missoula. Prior to being promoted to that role, he graduated from the FBI National Academy at Quantico, Va., in December 1988. Lee was also named and served as a special deputy United States marshal and held that position late into his career. He truly loved being a policeman and especially helping those who fell into harm’s way.

Lee was then employed by the Montana State Crime Lab for 19 years in Missoula as a forensic scientist specializing in alcohol test equipment. He retired there in 2010. For the past three years, Lee worked for CMI of Covington, Ky. His role there as the law enforcement program support manager was to mentor and teach new program managers in the United States and around the globe. Almost 40 years of experience in law enforcement and the Montana State Crime lab prepared him well for this position.

His most recent trip to teach and train military police officers was to Japan and Okinawa.

On Aug. 18, 1973, Lee married Rosalie Roberta Rose at First Methodist Church in Missoula. Rosalie is the daughter of William L. “Bill” Rose and Elfriede Vybiral Rose.

Lee and Rosie lived together in Missoula and celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this past summer. Lee was devoted to his wife Rosalie. Through their many adventures, Lee and Rosie were able to weather any storm. In recent years, Lee worked hard to help Rosie become the exceptional golfer that she is. He beamed with pride when he told people, “She beat me again.” Lee was a supportive, kind and protective spouse who truly cherished the four decades he spent with Rosalie. Rosie is employed at Hawthorne Elementary School in the Orchard Homes neighborhood. To their union were born a daughter, LeAnn Marie Meltzer, and a son, Max Aaron Meltzer.

Lee was a valued member of the Missoula Trap and Skeet Club. He always had a smile on his face, a story to tell and a helping hand for everyone. In 2005, he traveled to San Antonio and competed in the World Skeet Championship.

Lee loved spending time with family and friends and some of his best times were spent bird hunting with his dog Briley, playing golf and fishing. He excelled at all of them.

Although he would have liked morning to come later, Lee was the perfect hunting partner. A gifted raconteur, his stories kept the memory of the trip alive forever.

Lee’s family and friends know him as a loving and kind son, husband, father, friend and public servant.

Survivors include his mother, Virginia Meltzer of Missoula; wife, Rosalie Meltzer of Missoula; daughter, LeAnn M. Hall (Jonah) of Foothill Ranch, Calif.; son, Max A. Meltzer of Missoula; brother, Max C. Meltzer (Sue) of Missoula; mother in law, Elfie Rose of Florence; sisters in law and brothers in law, Yvonne Busse (George) of Big Horn, Wyo., Bill Rose Jr. Kelly Meltzer of Portland, Ore., and Brady L.

Your boots may have been made for walking, but they might also be ruining your feet.

schuh ugg boots Learning cat speak may help solve behavior issues

ugg style slipper boots Learning cat speak may help solve behavior issues

For me, March signals the time to put away my purple Ugg boots, schedule a pedicure and break out the flip flops.

For animal shelters and rescue groups in warm climates, it’s the time to start hanging the “Get your cats and kittens here!” signs.

Kitten season is nearly year round here in Florida, but it peaks in the spring. Shelters acquire litter after litter of kittens in need of homes, which is hard on the kittens and the shelters. And the sheltered adult cats: It’s hard to compete against the adorable ball of fuzz in the kennel next door. pet owners have a cat; that’s 38.2 million households with almost 21/2 cats each, according to the 2009 10 APPA National Pet Owners Survey.

So why are so many of these favorite pets surrendered to shelters?

Because they can do things we find confusing and contradictory. Dogs are much easier to read, and there are far more resources to help their owners address problems.

“Owners feel silly asking about cat problems,” says Donna Bainter, behavior manager at the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Tampa Bay. “People are reluctant to admit their cat is peeing or pooping around the house.”

There is bit of a stigma associated with negative cat behaviors because most involve delicate issues such as inappropriate elimination, spraying to mark territory and destructive scratching. Bainter says cat owners are often ashamed to seek help. But those stinky, destructive behaviors can be a feline cry for help.

“They can be indicators of stress or illness,” she says.

Seventy percent of cats in shelters are there because of some type of behavior problem their previous owner couldn’t or wouldn’t deal with, Bainter says.

“And those are the lucky cats, because they may get a second chance,” she says.

Many more frustrated owners simply banish their pets to the outdoors.

“Cats are an ‘assembly line’ pet,
schuh ugg boots Learning cat speak may help solve behavior issues
” Bainter says. “When a cat is not fitting into our lifestyle anymore, or causing problems, people often just cast the cat aside and get another one.”

For those who want to learn the language of cats, the SPCA Tampa Bay offers a two hour feline appreciation class that explores the cat psyche, personality and benefits of early socialization. In the first hour, SPCA veterinarian Cherie Buisson discusses feline nutrition and its effect on cat health and behavior.

“Cat Talk” comes next and focuses on aggression, excessive vocalization, scratching, biting, litter box issues and failure to get along with other household pets.

“We’ll talk about why it’s important to keep cats active and involved in predatory type play,” Bainter says. “Also how to read your cat’s body language and how cats communicate with one another.”

Most importantly, Bainter will talk about how cats are often misunderstood.

“When a cat’s behavior changes, people tend to think they are just being resentful or mad,” she says. “That is not the way a cat thinks, and it’s not what’s behind the behavior they’re exhibiting.”

If you’re having a problem now, the SPCA Tampa Bay offers a free Behavior Help Line for cat and dog issues. Call (727) 586 3591, ext. 133, and leave your name,

uggs sizing learned a few things as well

bailey ugg boots sale learned a few things as well

It’s time for another foray into hate speech. 22 bathroom adventure, today’s chapter of our ongoing critical conversation concerns Chancellor Robert Jones’ Sunday commentary (“What I’ve learned by listening”) in which he excoriates your humble scribe for daring to suggest that he, as someone who grew up in the really oppressive days of Jim Crow in Georgia, might be less than impressed when hearing today’s students bleating about how oppressed they are by the allegedly hostile atmosphere on campus, particularly as it relates to the memory of the late and longtime UI symbol Chief Illiniwek.

Chancellor Jones says it ain’t so, that his experience as an “outsider” has left him especially attuned to those who feel put upon. As a consequence, he listens “when I am approached by a student who tells me she feels her culture and history are being disrespected and insulted when she watches someone dressing as Chief Illiniwek.”

Jones said he does so “to understand the foundations of their perspectives and to respect the lived experiences that have brought them to these viewpoints.”

In other words, he feels their pain.

The chancellor ought to get outside the university bubble more. If he did, he’d understand that, just as there are those, including Native Americans, who object to the use of Native American imagery in athletic competition, there are many more who do not.

For example, in 2016, The Washington Post,
uggs sizing learned a few things as well
which opposes the Redskins name for the city’s NFL franchise, reported the results of a poll that showed “nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name.”

At the time, the newspaper said the poll reveals “how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.”

Maybe Jones should listen to them, too. Don’t hold your breath.

When people complain they aren’t being listened to, what they really mean is their target audience doesn’t agree. When a speaker tells a group that “I heard your message,” it generally means he accepts it.

Here’s an example of the difference. Last week, UI professors from the Senate’s Faculty and Tenure Committee challenged Jones’ decision to put Rosenstein on administrative leave. They insisted “there are procedures that have to be followed,” that Rosenstein is being disciplined without having an opportunity to be heard.

“I feel comfortable with the course of action as being the best for the institution and Professor Rosenstein,” Jones responded.

What happened to trying to “understand the foundations of their perspectives and to respect the lived experiences that have brought them to these viewpoints”?

Nothing, really. Jones listened and then made it clear he disagreed.

People, of course, are familiar with the clever use of one word to convey the meaning of another.

That’s standard operating procedures in any bureaucracy, and a university is just another bureaucracy.

University administrators can’t bring themselves to ignore the protests of anti Chiefs who complain the pro Chiefs still revere the Chief’s memory.

That’s why Jones hyperbolically opined that Chief Illiniwek’s “legacy throws disruptive shadows across every aspect of our mission” and is “tearing us apart.”

Nonsense. Does anyone in touch with reality think the memory of Chief Illiniwek undermines the daily functions of the UI in any way? Jones’ assertion is not just laughable, but preposterous. Further, to the extent he treats the issue as a conflagration,
uggs sizing learned a few things as well
Jones only ensures more of the hand wringing he wants to go away.

real ugg boots uk Learn where Opossums Live

ugg gloves women Learn where Opossums Live

Although opossums look like a big rat, they are actually related to the koala and kangaroo. The opossum (also called possum) is the only marsupial (female with a pouch) in North America. They are about the size of a cat, have black to gray fur, and long, pointed noses (pink in color).

Opossums have many teeth, more than any other land mammal, and a prehensile tail, one that can grasp or hold. Their tail helps stabilize them as they climb but they are not used to hang from trees. They are non aggressive animals (although they may hiss or growl when frightened) that prefer to avoid confrontations and be left alone. They are non destructive. In fact, opossums benefit the environment by keeping it clean and healthy. They eat roaches, rats, and dead animals. Many refer to them as “Nature’s Little Sanitation Engineers”.

When threatened by an animal it is unable to frighten or run away from, the opossum will “play dead” or “play possum”. This response is involuntary. They become comatose, foam from the mouth, and secrete a foul smell from their anal glands. They will not move even if they are prodded at or carried away. Most attackers will simply walk away and the opossum will regain consciousness after a few minutes or a few hours. During the Great Depression, they were introduced to the western region (probably as a source of food). They prefer wooded land but are adaptable and can survive wherever shelter,
real ugg boots uk Learn where Opossums Live
food, and water are available. Their dens can be found in a variety of areas, including hollow trees, stumps, rock piles, abandoned burrows, and attics.

Besides eating unpleasant food like dead animals, opossums will eat over ripe fruit, berries, vegetables, grasses, and leaves. The gestation is short (about 12 14 days). When the babies are born, they will find their way to the pouch and attach to a teat. At about 3 months, they will leave the pouch. For about another 2 months, the mother will carry her young on her back when away from the den.


Opossums are said to rank higher in intelligence than dogs.

Opossums have a remarkable immune system. They are more resistant to rabies than other mammals and many can survive venomous bites from rattlesnakes and cottonmouths.

ugg kensington boots sale Learn the rules for portable stands on wildlife management areas

Hunters planning to use portable stands on wildlife management areas this season are reminded to check regulations to learn when they need to remove stands after hunting.

“In most of the state, leaving stands overnight on WMAs is not allowed and they must be removed at the end of the day,” said Bob Welsh, Department of Natural Resources wildlife operations manager. “Users of most WMAs will not see a change in stand regulations this year, but there is a change in an area of northwestern Minnesota.”

Minnesota has 1.3 million acres of land in WMAs, and an estimated 500,000 hunters are expected to hit the woods and fields during firearms deer season in hopes of harvesting a deer.

The new regulation allows WMA users to leave up to two portable stands overnight in any WMA in the northwestern corner of the state roughly north of Thief River Falls and west of Warroad. The area also is described as north of Highway 1 where it exits the Red Lake Indian Reservation to the western edge of the state, and west of a line from Highway 89 where it exits the Red Lake Indian Reservation to Fourtown, then north on the west side of Dick’s Parkway Forest Road, then north to Highway 5 to the northern edge of the state.

The DNR defines a portable stand as a stationary platform or blind designed and capable of being readily moved by hand by a single person in a single trip without the aid of a motorized vehicle, is secured in position and does no permanent damage to the natural environment.

Hunters leaving a stand overnight must label the stand with the hunter’s name and address; the hunter’s driver’s license number;

or simply with the hunter’s MDNR number. The label must be readable from the ground.

In WMAs in the remainder of the state, stands cannot be left overnight.

“Every year we have people leaving stands overnight on WMAs, so it’s a common violation,” said Greg Salo, assistant director of the DNR Enforcement Division. “We have this regulation in place to prevent some users from preempting others from the opportunity to use WMAs on a first come, first served basis.”

Portable stands may be used on WMAs if they are removed each day at the close of shooting hours and do no permanent damage. Spikes or nails driven into trees are not allowed, but screwing or clamping devices are allowed if removed each day at the close of shooting hours.

“In addition to WMAs, there are a variety of other public land types and hunters should be aware that regulations governing the use of portable stands can differ depending on the type of public land they’re hunting,” Salo said.

Hunters should always wear a safety harness if using an elevated stand, added Salo.

“In addition to wearing a safety harness, check climbing sticks, steps or ladders for damage and always wait to load a firearm until safely in the stand,
