    20171114_084809.jpg This one's called "The Gambler". Even comes with a free, full color liability waiver printed on classic parchment paper.
    Word is they are working on a climber called "No Fear" to be released by early fall of 2018.

    I still remember my dad's first tree stand, a kitchen chair hung from a fork in a tree, and a rope ladder going up.


    I found some remnants of an old tree stand, one remaining wood rung nailed to a tree just on the other side of our fence. I asked my friend, I wonder how old you need to be to remember/realize that was how tree stands were made before the industry caught up. Use to be, you climbed up to a wedge in the tree and sat there. Good old days of sore buns.

    I used to always carry a 30' 3/8 rope and processes it back and forth in the fork of a tree to sit on, those were the days and everyone thought that safety straps were for p kitties.

    Back in the day hunting south Arkansas leases would use linesman pole climbing gaffs to get up and down to a loc on other wise half the club would be using your stand ... Bark rash is a real thing !

    Heck, just the old Baker stands were a death trap. If it came loose from your boots and slid down the tree you were screwed. I took and put eye bolts on mine and put a heavy duty bungee on it to keep it from sliding down while you shifted your weight around. Ahhh the good old days. LOL

    Had the bottom of a baker style fall out from under me a couple times, getting down is a blast although gravity is on your side.

    Learned real quick to tie those together with a 1/4 rope with enough slack to climb with. I’ve shimmied down too many trees when I was young and dumb.

    Yeah, I killed a few while balancing on a limb back in the '70's. Missed few more with a bow too. Back then "the cat's meow" was some good 2x's nailed up the tree with a nice pallet wedged in the limbs. A good foot or two of snow for a soft landing! :)
    Funny thing is that this chair stand was at least a mile from the road. That would be a chore toting that in and then it was probably 20' up the tree.

    I believe the does are in what they call "lock down" in my hunt area. Drove it out last night and saw 5 yearlings without mammas. Hunted daylight to dark today and saw four lone yearlings. I did see someone had hit a (guess) 130" class buck on my way home. They were standing over it with a flashlight and it had it's head up.
