So you hike in your climber, bow, rattling horns, etc. and you are at your tree...now what? How do you get your butt, bow, and gear safely (and quietly) up the tree with you or after you climb the tree in the stand?
I typically hunt hang on stands with steps or ladders. With a lineman's belt I place my steps, hang the stand, drop a life line, drop a bow/gear line, and place a bow and gear hangers. When I get there to hunt I clip on my bow to the gear line, clip my harness to the lifeline ascend the tree and haul up my bow. Safe and sound in my stand I hang my bow ready to hunt.
Any suggestions from seasoned climber tree stand users? Thanks guys!
