Lone Wolf and Montana Decoy

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Anyone use Lone Wolf tree stands or their climbing sicks? How do you like them?

Other question is about Montana buck or doe decoy....anyone use these? I've read the reviews on Cabelas website and most seem to think they work well but durability is an issue.

Can anyone help?

I gave 2 lone wolfs and love both! I have the middle sized hang-on, perfect in ever respect plus I have the alpha sit and climb, another exceptional stand but the seat is a wee bit small but its still good enough to sit in for a long sit. I usually stand for about 5 minuts every half hour to hour and I am good to go for all day if I choose. Sorry but I don't know anything about decoys since I don;t use them. I carry enough gear anyways, I don't want to have to worry about all the safety too.

The lone wolf treestands are the best that you can buy, You really do get what you pay for. The best stand on the market hands down.

I also have a LW stand. I have the Alpha. I bought it last year and its been fantastic for me. My buddy bought one too. He's got the sticks, I don't. Not for any reason other than I already use the Bucksteps.

My son uses only LW stands and after i had own stolen this past archery season, I will be replacing it with another LW. Many climbers will get the job done and they all work. From my experience, LW makes a very nice stand and yes they are probably the highest priced on the market.

I don't have any experience with the LW stands, but I do with the Montana decoys. The first time I had a deer come into my decoys using one of these, the animal totally froze up and eventually bolted. I couldn't figure out why until I went down later to "relieve" myself, and in walking back to my stand, my decoy caught my attention and almost made me "relieve" myself again in my pants!! The thing was way to pale or light colored, looked like a ghost deer or something like that. My home remedy was to use some brown rit clothing dye and tone it down a little bit. Now it looks very good, and I haven't had that problem again. I am not sure if they have changed this at the factory or not, but just a concern of mine.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
