Climbing Tree Stand

3 posts in this topic

Just bought a Loggy Bayou climbing stand it has the wire type strap that goes around the tree. I just had a friend tell me he knows of 3 people that have fallen from this type of stand. He perfers the metal type strap around the tree. Please let me know you thoughts guys before I start climbing trees with it. Thanks

i think they sell an attachment for those stands to assist you in climbing, they are on Amazon. I have a cheapo climber i found at Walmart for $50 and have had no problem with it, it has the wire type strap.

I think you are asking about the type with a 1/4 steel cable as the attachment around the tree? I have used my summit many many many times, with no problems. I think most people that have difficulties do so because they pick the wrong type (smooth bark) or size tree (too large or small) for their stand. Also, like any stand, you should use a harness while climbing. It only takes maybe 60 seconds extra to climb with a harness on and attached to the tree...

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
