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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
