I've never used one before but i figure its time for my wifes sake. I usually hunt out of my 16 foot ladder stands or my Gorilla climber. One of my ladder stands and my climber have a shooting rail that makes me feel safe. I feel especially safe in my climber. But i found a used HSS treestalker for 40 bucks and am gonna get it i think. Do you guys even year them in your climbers? Do you wait tillm8 get up the tree to strap it on? How would you use it when climbing? Again, never used one before. Thanks for all advice.
