    heres a new product i saw at the classic

    its a heck of an idea but this stuff is going to be pretty high two "strips like in the pick to do each side of a 15 ft ladder is goin to be a bit over 150 bucks

    its avaiable with green or fall colored follage

    there also going to make some out of flex able stuff to put over climber or rails.

    the guy was kinda a jerk at frist i was taking a pic and he came running over and said don't plan on knocking that off i have a 30 year pat. on it
    bout pi$$ed me off but aftfer i talked with him a bit he was a pretty cool guy and can 't really blame him for protecting his product i do think it seems prety over priced however

    does look pretty cool, but a patent on some plastic leaves and green wire? You can buy the same stuff at a florist for alot cheaper..

    So why couldn't you go to Wal Mart, or Michael's or some other craft store and buy that stuff and just tie it to the stand? Paint as needed... patten that! :moon:

    It sure looks like it is something a fella could pick up at Hobby Lobby for a lot less money. I don't think that fella is going to sell much at that price........$150 is more that I paid for my whole stand. He's not getting my money but I do appreciate his idea. It got me to thinking about hitting a few garage sales this spring and buying up a few plastic plants and a couple of rolls of camo tape should do the trick.

    honestly i think if you get some fake tree leaves and stick them in some of that foam pipe insulaton you would have it made and as long a you not selling them just makeing for you own use its totally cool

    i do have to say his molded plastic did look just like a tree bark and all

    The price sounds about right ~ for a gov't contract.

    I'll bet he has a lot of $$$ tied up in his new discovery... :roll2:

    Can't blame a guy for trying though, eh?!

    One more thing ~ more than likely, this product will make it even more difficult in finding your stands in the dark. And it just cost you $150 for that privilege...

    There are a lot of ideas out there that we can copy as long as we don't try to make any money on it. Of course if it isn't patented you can go ahead and make lots of money of course as they say you have to have money to make money. That leaves me out so I'll continue to tinker in my garage to make a better turkey call or whatever else my old brain can think up.

    Here is a free tip, I didn't patent it...

    I cut pieces of an old garden hose and cut them down the middle to wrap around the top shooting rail of my ladder stand.

    Wonder why he's got it priced so high. Surely he must realize that not many people will pay more for a couple of strips of camo than they did for the stand.
    I've never camoed any of our ladder stands and the deer sure don't seem to mind. Think I'll hang on to my $150!

    My wife and I stopped at his booth and talked to him a few minutes about the stuff. We walked away and she said why can't you just use some of the black isulating foam for pipes and then go to Hobby Lobby (her favorite store of course) and get the leaves. I think she has a good reason for Hobby Lobby now.:D

    Did a google search and came up with this site http://www.qadinc.com/sneaky-leaf.htm It is called Sneaky Leaf. It consist of two 9 ft sections of rubber coated brown wire that has 70 barbs on each section to attach the fall colored leaves. Each leaflet has two leaves that comes in a set of 50 pairs or 100 per order. The leaves are in 4 fall colors each. The wire and leaves sell separately. Wire...$4.99 for the 2 9ft pcs. Leaves...$14.99 for the 50 sets of 2 leaves each. You can roll each one up and carry it in your backpack.

    The other problem I have with this stuff (the pipe covers) being on the ladder stand, is that you're not getting a sure grip on the stand......I think there's a little bit of a safety concern there.

    Just my .02.
