I hunt about 50/50 from ladder stands and my climber. When I am at my buddies farm i always use a ladder stand. But if I am anywhere else I use my climber. i have a lock on stand but have only sat in it a few times. I love my climber. i feel so safe in it and i usually don't wear a harness while i am in it. i don't wear one when i am in the ladder stands either. I usually only wear one when i hunt from the lock on stand. If i feel tired orknow i am going to take a nap i will wear my harness.

I use a summit viper, and a api grandslam for climbers. A hunters view 16ft ladder(mostly the wife but I occasionally sit it), and a LOC ON brand lock on stand.

Shoot you just gave me a good idea Dan, I'm going to make a complete gear list for this year in a post before bed.

Well, tonights hunt was a good one. Didn't put us on the board but saw a nice 120-ish 8 pt. He never got any closer than a 100 yards, but was glad to see him moving around. I am fairly certain that I wouldn't have taken the shot had he given it. It ws near 90 when I left the house, but with a light front moving in, they seemed to be moving a little better than they have for a few weeks. That's all the hunting I'll be doing this week as i have some other stuff to get done before the hunting gets hot.

sadly this is the biggest buck i have pics of this year or know of running around.. i dont really wanna shoot him but i know if i dont someone else will around here


Hey, today I saw a deer just like this one on the dam of my pond. He's been the biggest one I've seen this year in my yard. He must have come out of the back woods to get a mid morning drink. Not that I would shoot him, but I had a perfect 40 yrd broadside.

I use a summit broadhead. Its just like the viper but it folds down and becomes a backpack and is ton easier to carry on your back cause when you fold it up you dont kick the cables when you walk. I love it I got it really cheap too. It was regularly $290 and I got it brand new for $170. Gander mt had a 30% off treestand sale and I had a few gift cards.

The ladder stands I use are mostly homemade but I do use a ameristep buddy stand. I also have a ground blind that turns into a stand. Their is a big 7 foot platform that the ground blind sits on so you can sit on the ground or attach it to the platform. It is nice to hunt with more than one person. We put carpet down on the platform and use computer chairs inside the blind. It is really comfortable, but really hard to shoot a bow out of with more than one person in it. So I will only bow hunt alone in it.

The lock on stand I use is an ameristep too i think. I either use tree steps or ladder sections.

I ordered a summit seat to put on my api for this season. Squirrels wrecked havoc on both my seats last year, but only ruined one. Hopefully this year they'll find something else to destroy other then my gear. A buddy of mine has a few Summit Vipers and I would get one...but I buy so much other gear that I just settle back in and give my current climbers the once over and replace anything woren and go on.

The new harness should be the big upgrade this year ontop of the new chains and seat for the API. The old API seat moved over to the Hunters View, but the cables on it look good and it's ready for another year.
