Ameristep and HME both make drink holders for tree stands. It looks like they retail for 3.99 to 5.99 and are available from Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops. I haven't personally used one but they look pretty handy.

I much prefer a hydration pack with a bite valve. I have a Camelback which has been great. With the bite valve positioned properly, you almost have no movement when you go to take a drink, plus there is no bottle or can to drop and make noise.

hydration packs are nice and I have one in my hunting backpack, but it doesn't hold pop, coffee or cocoa. Kinda nice to have a place to put down a cup without worrying about tipping off of your seat or having it between your legs when you need to take a shot.

I use a pack that straps around your waist. I carry a knife,scents,license,snacks,sandwiches ext. Plus it has slots on both sides for cans or bottles. Once in my tree I strap it around the tree. You can put it high or low. I usually put it so its just off to the side of my seat, so I can reach it without to much movement. You just want to make sure its out of the way for bowhunting. If a shot presents itself behind you. During rifle hunting I hang it to the side so I can also use it as a rest for a longer shot behind me.

Harvey I was just on the cabelas website and they sell something like this that can bolt to the shooting rail or seat frame of your stand. It had a large cupholder with a hook below that they showed holding your thermos. I think it was like $12. If anything I'm sur eyou could find something at a truck stop or auto parts store like the ones that hang in the track of a car window or on the old armrests.

I bought a couple that would hang in your car window ledge and took a hose clamp and attached it to the side bar.Works great and now its easy to have a pop if you like.

I have seen mesh can holders that just screw into the tree like a step would. I have yet to buy one. I have also thought about getting just a chunk of wood with a double ended screw screwed into the edge to screw into the tree so you have a little mini table to set your coffee cup on. There is alot of time to think of this stuff on stand.

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes
