Climbing Sticks- How high can i go

4 posts in this topic

I use climbing sticks for my stands. All reach 20 ft. I wanted to get a little higher on a couple trees am I OK/safe getting a 5ft extension. Rather not use the screw ins for the extra 5. Anyone use climbing sticks to reach that high?

I use 3 lightweight BuckSteps climbing sticks, but I also carry 2 or 3 lightweight strap-on steps by Ameristep. I ONLY USE THE STRAP-ON STEPS DOWN LOW. They work, but I'm still, um, cautious. Screw in steps give me the willies.

with this configuration, I can easily reach 20 ft, but I don't bow hunt more than 10-12 at very most 15 feet anyways. Rifle is a different story....

I also use Bucksteps. I've been to 24-25ft before. There is no law about how high you can go with a portable. Only problem is getting that high and having a good shot and knowing how to shoot the angle.

Otherwise, the sky's the limit wink.gif Sorry that was too easy

how high ya need to be, jeez! I would think you would need a lone tree to be that high up and not have to deal with a bunch of branches from surrounding trees. But I would go with climbing sticks to go that high up, NOT screw-ins.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
