You built a new blind in King William last year!? YOU LUCKY!
If the tagged stake is not replaced by a tagged blind, built to the specifications outlined in the legislation, by November 1, then you may continue to hunt your blind.
If he does build a blind, you are effectively locked out of the spot unless he decides to let you use it.
This is the EXACT reason why you have to be careful licensing a non-riparian blind. Landowners see it as a threat and will immediately build their own blind to lock up the water. If you instead hunted the spot out of a floater, they would be much less likely to go to such extreme measures and lock up the area. Many folks in the tidewater area who own waterfront land are seasonal, and may not even be there often in the winter. Being a floater and being able to come and go are very important when dealing with angry riparian owners.
I hunted a creek for years out of a floater and for some asinine reason, decided to put a non-rip stationary blind on it. It got cut down at the waterline not long after. The landowner built a blind and another landowner put up huge signs advertising his property as a baited shoreline. That creek will never be hunted for years to come. Dumb move on my part, and I completely deserve it for being foolish with how I presented myself. That stationary blind you put up is much more of an offensive move than the occasional float hunt.
I wish you luck, and if all else fails, there's this....
