Question What constitutes a vehicle

I am considering a hunting blind that I can tow to a location behind my tractor and set in place - take the tractor back to my barn and then hunt from the blind. It has wheels and can be towed but would have have no power or method of moving on its own. Does this violate the rules for hunting from a vehicle?

Your blind isnt self propelled. It's not a problem.

I know we covered this in previous posts and if I remember correctly, a trailer like you're talking about is good to go once it is unhitched from the pulling vehicle.

Good to go. As long as it is not motorized.

my farmer buddy has a two cow cattle trailer he hauls out into the field, about a week before the season opens, places it on the highest spot and unhitches it. blocks it so it wont roll away and has a table, some bar stools and a heater inside. we have taken several deer from there, the deer get used to it being there, they have even walked right up to it at night and it smells like cows

That makes sense to me and was my thinking as well but I lack confidence in my interpretation of laws in general and game laws specifically. Thank to each of you for the input. A tow-able blind will allow me to set it up in a location that I could never place a fixed location blind.

Just don't keep your vehicle attached to the trailer when your hunting out of it. That seems to make sense.

Neighbors use an old bare ford pickup cab up on timbers.
