Climbing sticks?

7 posts in this topic

Due to having a few ladder stands taken in the last few years I have been thinking of going back to a hang stand with climbing sticks and taking the sticks with after setup.

Anyone else do this and which ones would be light and stack well for carrying, fast and quit setup and sturdy? I know a lot to ask!

I just hate the thought of clanging around on opening day but it's better then finding your stand gone all together in the dark! :sick:

Lone wolf, XOP and I am hearing good things about Hawk Helium sticks. All would work, I have a set of lone wolf and really like them but they aren't perfect by any means.

I buy whatever is on sale, but dont much care about portability or weight.  Just got some big game 32" sticks for $13 each at farm n barn.  They work fine for my purposes.

On sale is good but since I would have to carry them in and set the up opening morning I don't want to haul a piano in there. We have hunted this spot for about 18 years without seeing a person, now it's getting hard to trust the area.  We think it may be a local that comes during the week with a bolt cutters and cuts the lock cables. Kind of suks.  Will head over to Fleet and check them out. Thanks.

Never mind, found a thread on this topic in bowhunting forum. 

Apparently depends on what kind of public land whether semi or permanent stands are ok.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
    • I've got a bunch of Humminbird Snapshots of my DI and SI stuff. Many people pay for the technology and don't know what they are looking for. Study these shots and tell me what you think you see.
