You can hog hunt year round and stands can only stay for 72 hours. Be sure to wear your orange and be aware there's a good chance your stand will walk off if left behind.

Can't leave your stand in forest, pack in out each time. However, some people do leave their stands in, you run risk of someone taking it. Or the rangers may find and confiscate it.

Yes. You just can't hunt from a boat.
