Today was the first day I have ever hunted or attempted to use a climber stand. I practiced before going in the woods and all went good. I picked a tree with too hard of bark almost smooth so i was having trouble getting a good grip so switched trees. PLUS i forgot my string so had to hold my bow while getting up the tree for the first time.:lol: more like :rant: I was positive I wouldnt see deer but had a few come in, not close enough though. Any suggestions on climbers?
