Tree Stand Lock

Recommended Posts

cybermuskie

He guys just thought I would let you know that I was at wally world this past week when I came across a new tree stand lock called Python made by master lock. It was camo, and looked cool, so I was checking it out. Well I wondered how it worked, so I was playing and by chance I took a key from package 2 and inserted it into lock #1. Imagine my surprise when it opened the lock. So I looked at all 4 hanging there and they all had the same key. Not sure if this was a bad batch, but I wouldn't trust losing a stand to a lock that everyone had a key to. Just thought I should share.

Good tip on a good product. It certainly would work nice on those public spots. However, your best bet is to remove your stand on public land if there is a chance of it being taken. Good luck all!

I am fond of a lock/cable I picked up at a bike shop. Its a kryptonite cable which is plastic coated. The first one I bought had a padlock on it and I used it to lock in my auger and house in my old pickup w/o the topper, until it got exposed to an icestorm...

After a half hour with frozen fingers and lock deicer and no luck I was able to cut it with a vice grips with cutters, but it took me twenty more minutes of knawing through it. The next one and one I really like has a combination lock on it.

To bad people aren't all honest or have dignity and we have to go through all this crap, huh...

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
