My hunting season this year is one giant experiment. Not only am I trying new tactics, but I am trying a lot of new properties. One way I am rolling the dice this year is by using one tree stand for the entire season.
4 months, 6 properties, dozens of locations…one treestand.
The idea of using one treestand isn’t all that new to me – I have used climbers almost exclusively for a few years now. But the problem with a traditional climbing treestand is that you spend nearly as much time hunting for the right tree as you do hunting deer; and often times, the “right” tree isn’t in the right spot.
Every hunt I am packing a treestand in on my back, setting it up, hunting, climbing down, gathering it all together and packing it back out on my back. That sounds like a lot of work, and in many ways it is. Could I really do this all season? Is it worth it? Why would I even do it?…
