Homemade Climbing Stick/Ladder

4 posts in this topic

Thought about getting an extra cheap hang-on this year to add to my ladder stand and blinds but not sure if I want a to pony up on a climbing stick which might be more than the stand itself. Does anyone make their own ladder/climbing stick out of treated lumber? I have a bunch of it around and could afford to toss after a few season as to not worry about rotting/safety. Any ideas are appreciated.

The Sportsmans Guide has some pretty good deals on climbing sticks.

I've used the ones in snapcrackpop's picture. They are really easy to put up and even easier to take down, but are somewhat bulky to carry to the stand. Also, sometimes the wood will twist making the steps somewhat trickier to use. Overall though, I like them.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
