climber treestands

9 posts in this topic

I am looking to buy a climber treestand for the upcoming archery season and I am wondering if anyone could offer up an opinion on what brand/model to get. I know that Lone Wolf is probably top of the line but they are so expensive. Are they worth the money or are there any cheaper options?

I swear by the Ol'MAn climbers. Very simple, basic and I have had nothing but good luck with them.

I have one that I really like, I think it's a Summit (or maybe an API).

I have a basic summit climber I think I got for $190. its SO comfortable. but I dont find myself using it a lot due to a lack of straight trees without limbs. nonetheless, they are really nice stands.

You cant go wrong with a Summit. I have both a Viper and a Goliath. Solid, reliable, reasonably light, and very safe!

I love my summit climber. The only thing that I would caution about the summit's are the cord can sometime slip on some types of trees. There are some climbers with better cords/chains that go around the tree. I would also consider the accessories that you can put on the stand, such as: Gun holder, bow holder, bag accessory, whatever you want. I love mine, but I have customized my accessories to fit my hunting needs. It is definately safe and comfortable. I stay in mine from 4:30am-7pm straight and never had an issue with comfort.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
