My latest invention for my Lone Wolf

1301 17
Well, I couldn't see spending $100 on Lone Wolfs treestand carrier or $50 for the one that is made by their maker, so I had an extra backpack and rigged it on to my LW as a quick disconnect system. To me, part of what I like about the LW is that they have a honeycomb platform that blends in better than a solid platform. I wanted this backpack to quick disconnect so that when I get the stand in the woods, I can quickly take the pack off. Total cost...free, as I already had the pack and the cable clamps. :tongue: Talk about COMFY on my back and shoulders. I use 6 cable clamps in various existing loops on this Fieldline pack to secure it to the top, sides, and bottom of stand.

Some stores sell them individually. $1 a piece. Wally world has a 4 pack for $3.67. They work gr8 for securing items in treestands too such as packs or detacheable quivers to your pack or a limb or whatever.

I bet you can use thick plastic cable ties (I call them "zip ties") or velcro straps too.

So, you just sacrifice the backpack, right? Looks GREAT!

I mean, you can't put any gear in the pack or it wouldn't be very comfy between the stand and your back.

I was going to do something similar but realized I still needed another pack for all my gear.

My setup has straps from an Army Alice pack. I think they were $15.
But yours looks better. :)

Zip strips will work too. They of course are just not reuseable like the cable clamps, but one could just bring extras with you. I simply like the pack removed once I get there as I don't like the solid look of the bottom of the stand. I feel that more and more mature deer look up and will see that solid black blob of a pack left attached to the stand. I carry my Lone Wolf stand and Lone Wolf sticks in and out of the woods each time I hunt. Just simply remove this pack once you get to the woods and place it up the tree with you in a crotch or wrapped around the trunk.
