Has anyone else packed in a treestand more that 4 miles or am I the only dumb one? I like to hunt hard for a few days then take a treestand day. But I don't like crowds so I pack mine in a bit.
Larry, Just don't count on the seat or any bit of cloth or padding to be there the following year.Actually, walking a stand into a productive area and then caching it there for future use does make a lot of sense. Just don't leave it up in a tree, squirrel it away somewhere hidden and then move it to where you want it each day.
Well, I WOULD put it in a protective case/cover of some sort. Have I told you the story of the raccoon that ate through the plastic coating on the power conduit at the substation near my house...to say the least the meat was very well done!Larry, Just don't count on the seat or any bit of cloth or padding to be there the following year.
My bull from two years ago (my only bull) was taken from a treestand that has been on the mountain for more than a few years and I nor my buddies have any idea who put it there. I've never seen anyone in it aside from myself, and I've only used it 3-4 times. Got lucky the second time I was in it and a nice 6x6 walked to 10 yards.That was one dedicated treestander. I may have to just borrow it for a while one of these days.
