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...

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
