So just mounted sticks and Talons last night, haven’t used them yet. Is anyone actually climbing the tree and pulling sticks off as you go? Do you bungee both top and bottom of the stick? I can’t reach the top talon, no where near that flexible. I can reach the lower one but not double jointed to reach the top one.

I believe bungees need taken loose before you start climbing. Im wanting to order some. What are your initial thoughts?

Call the manufacturer. The guy that makes them is awesome to talk to and actually told me to buy stealth strips before talons when I mentioned I was planning to buy talons first.

seems to me they are nothing but a pain in the dupa....much easier to haul up the stand via a rope after the sticks are hung... as for packing in the sticks, a $4 ratchet works great ...

I climb with them.

I mount my first stick then hang the second d on the top step. Leave the remaining two in the talon without the bungee cords. Go up and just grab the bottom of the stick to remove them( practice before hunt).

Now coming back down I have loops on my harness for the sticks. Not going to take my time putting them back in the talons hanging off the side of a tree.

Also stealth strips are a good idea, talons hold much better with them

Yeah I have everything Stealth stripped, guess I could hang bottom one then second have in loop off belt. Then leave 3 and 4 on the Talons without bungees and hang as I go up.

Dont have the setup anymore but when I did, I hung the first two sticks before starting my ascent. Left the other two sticks in the talons without the bungees; I had mine mounted left and right not top and bottom so they were both in reach as I went

Did you haven't full length ones or the short ones?Couldn't handle the extra width myself as I go through some thick stuff on the way to the tree sometimes.
