They are what they are. vdgif.com should help. If you are form Richmond and have a computer you can read.

Thats a good one haha. The whole tag a tree thing is rediculous yes. I know of many cypress trees I would like to stand under during duck season. Im sure there are many on every river or creek with cypress trees, in fact some of my best hunts ever have been standing under cypress trees (tag or no tag cypress trees are good duck blinds if they are big enough to hide under,thats a fact Jack!).
Consider this, several or one partners in group 1 who are landowners. Several or one landowner group 2. Their marshes are divided by creek. Group 1 has several stationary brushed boat hide tagged hunted blinds in between 375- 475 yards of group 2's one stationary Open Water boat hide brushed tagged hunted blind thats close to his shoreline and sort of in the middle of the triangle of the other three blinds but far enough away that it wont disrupt each others hunting based on years of hunting. They have been there for so long that when they were all built they stood on marsh but some of the marsh dissappeared, and only some or pretty much none of it can still be seen at low tide. Obviously there are landowner agreements out there that 3rd parties wouldn't be familiar with. Politics trump the law all day if you and the other dude own it and agree about whatever.
Another scenario, if someone tags a tree perhaps they are thinking about building a new blind there. If that tree is farther away from a tagged brushed boat hide hunted blind, then why worry about it, but its still stupid and a waste of money.
After NOV. 1 if there is a tag on a dock or tree it isnt real. Docks btw I would never worry about them. The state will take their money if they want to buy the tag, and if they want to waste shells on mergs they are just bored deer hunters educating every bird inthe air. I took an old blind tag that said 1989 the year I was born off an old rotting board in our marsh and nailed it to our cabin in the woods thats about the same as nailing one to a dock IMO. I dont like dummy blinds either. This same "dummy blind" (it was our blind) in our marsh with the rotting boards 50 yards away from where we moved it to the new blinds spot, I sawed off the old foundation 4x4s because it looked sloppy and I wanted there to be a natural spot there, and if I ever wanted to hunt there in ice I wouldnt make a slushy
