I am looking at the summit lines. Who else makes a great climber? I want something that is easy to use and easy to pack in and out of the woods.

I've been happy with Rivers Edge Gator Jaws. It's not the lightest or the quitest to assemble, but I've shot a few deer with it in limited use. For $80, the price was hard to beat. It's a very safe, stable stand, although I would guess most climbers would be.

I am definitely a summit guy. I purchased the summit bullet backpacker a couple of years ago and it is the SAFEST stand I think I have ever had. I chose the bullet because of the front enclosure. I stand when I shoot my bow, and I can lean out to the point my thigh rests on that front bar. I don't feel like I could fall out of it because of that.

The definite plus to this stand is COMFORT. I can sit in that stand all day and not have legs that get cramped up or fall asleep. Heck...If I fell asleep, I wouldn't fall out since it cradles your body and there is a bar all around you.. It's not the lightest stand to carry, but it packs flat, and is only 23 pounds which is not too bad.

You cannot beat a climber for comfort or ease of putting up.

The summit climbers are the best there is in my opinion. Strong, lightweigth, easy to carry, and solid as a rock!

I have used Old-Man climbers for years and lov-em. Fold up flat and the mesh seat is comfortable and sides so you can sit and climb and also some times I sit facing the tree or slide the mesh against the tree.

I bought a Lone Wolf Alpha Sit-n-Climb about two years ago. I really balked at the price (349.99 at the time) but finally bought it. It is my favorite piece of equipment behind my bow and my binos. Light, easy to set-up, and realy comfortable.

I just bought the Summit Razor SS and I love it. It has the front bar but you can fold it under the seat if you don't want to use it for archery. At only 21 lbs you can barely tell it's on your back. Really comfortable too, I'm just afraid I might fall asleep in it. The Summit skin it comes with is a plus too, looks like it would break up your outline pretty good from the bottom.

I to purchased the Summit Razor SS. For the money awesome stand. I agree with the sleeping hazards too. Way to comfortable. Sturdy well build and light. Great buy!!! Ordered direct and had it in 3 days. Kind of like Christmas time when it was delivered. Set up in the yard a few times and shot about 30 arrows at all directions. Recommended!!! Enjoy!!!!

      Lonny or if someone else can answer do you charge more in Sept to make the special trips or is it the standard rate.  Also on a side note took my two citified nieces up there over the 4th for the day and we absolutely killed the Small mouth and even got a bonus trout, they have both asked when the next time we are going up there.  10 and 7.   Tumy  Also depends on what you are looking for, the bass fishing will be fantastic find island cast around said island catch 25 bass. HAH  The bluegills might be a little deeper that time of the year.  Walleyes I have two spots I would try that time of year but have never had much success in July and August, that also might be I do it for an hour and 5 pound small mouth start dancing through my head.

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.
