    When I hunt I always take a backpack with me. I like to carry water, snacks, tp. rangefinder, calls, a book,.... Here is the dilemma, I have always hunted ladders or permanent stands. This year I have been hunting a new place and the deer travel pattern has changed but I don't want to move the ladder this late in the game. I have had a climber for a couple of years but never used it. My question is how do you guys carry all your "junk" and a climber?

    I hook my back pack right to the climber so its kind of piggy backing the climber..

    X2, but I would suggest getting a pair of padded carry straps.
    The thin web straps that sometimes come with climbers will kill your shoulders.

    I agree with olshep. I use the military alice pack padded straps. they are quick adjustable and waaaay more comfortable. You can get them from ebay for about $12 a set, or at a military surplus store for about $10

    Yep, sure do. I have the padded "backpack" straps for my mobile sets.
    I use my lone wolf hand on more so when packing alot of "stuff", it's smaller and lighter even when carrying the climbing steps.

    Padded straps are a must as stated before. I have a summit. I carry it with the forks and cables down. The backpack will sit on top of the forks, I then use the foot bungie cord to keep it in, and then use the safety string to tie the top of the pack to one of the climber frames. It works very well for me.:cheers:

    Exactly what I do too. My pack fits in there perfectly.

    Did you figure it out yet? I think there is a picture of a guy on the summitt website packing the climber with the tree cables pointing to the groung. In this fashion a backpack will sit right on top of the bracing. You can then slide your foot bungie down and it keeps your daypack from falling out.:superman:

    I have bags that came with my climber so I put what I need in them and just pack the climber, I also have multiple pockets in my hunting clothes legs jacket and so on that I can load up.
