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.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
