  1. For sale. Summit mini Viper SD with Hazmore mesh seat on it. Original seat included as well. Bout it this past November but realized I prefer to use sticks and hang on. Used for a total of 3 hunts! Not a single scratch or dent on it! All straps and pads included. Paid 270 for stand plus 40 for mesh seat. Will sell it all for 250. Looks like most places are still selling the stand only for 280. I’ll also drive to meet you if reasonably close to the Hudson valley. If I don’t sell it it’s no big deal. Let me know if anybody is interested. Thanks!
  2. Thanks, everyone for the advice. It seems to be pretty consistent. If anything, I can move some stands in the woods to try to catch the deer moving in and out of the plots...
  3. Don’t know yet. He just text and said he was considering taking up a collection to put some plots in...
  4. Hi all. I’ll try to keep this brief but would like some advice as how to best respond to this situation... I have permission to hunt a very large farm and surrounding property which is almost 400 acres of land. There are several other guys who have also been hunting the property for many years. We are not friends per se but do communicate by text occasionally. Throughout the years it has come to be that each of us have specific areas of the property that we each tend to stay in and it has never been a problem. Some guys like to hunt stands on the edge of the corn fields while I prefer to
  5. I hunt in 3M so my properties are no bigger than 30-50 acres. The places I hang stands are the best spots on the property. Other guys that hunt the property allow their “buddies” to hunt as well. The guy said...”oh, my buddy said I can hunt here. I thought this was his stand.” I don’t want to bother the land owners bc they were uneasy about hunting to begin with so if I go to them with problems they might tell me no more hunting.
  6. I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts about staying hidden- meaning using a climber instead of pre hung stands- to avoid other hunters being aware of your spots. I have had many headaches in the past few years with trail cams being stolen, ladder sticks being removed, and my favorite... me walking up to my ladder stand to find a guy sitting in it. I hunt a few different pieces of private land but each land owner has granted several other hunters permission as well. I recently bought a new summit climber which is nice but due to family obligations, I usually only hunt mornings and carrying
  7. Please forgive me if this is a stupid question. The sd card from my camera was stolen. I went to check my cam today and it was sitting at the base of the tree with the straps gone, latch open and sd card missing. I’ve heard that cameras have some sort of internal memory and if you hook up the cam from the USB port to your computer, some pics can be seen. Before I drive out to my parents house to use their computer... is this true or am I out of luck?
  8. That’s what I planned on doing. Just pushing it back up the tree an inch or 2 to take the pressure off. Then pulling it back down into place next hunt. Any reason why this would not be ok?
  9. I plan to switch from a 20 foot stick ladder to (3) individual climbing sticks to get into my hang ons this year. I plan to leave the top stick on the tree and carry in the bottom 2 each time I hunt. Should I take the pressure off or loosen the straps on the top stick after I hunt and pull it down tight next hunt or should keep it tight all season? I plan to hang my stands this week and was thinking it might keep the straps in better shape if I take the pressure off. FYI- I plan on using the regular factory strap in addition to another buckle strap for extra security. Any climbing stick guys h
  10. Does anyone know exactly how the mechanism workS? I’ve looked online but I still can’t find the specific details. Also- I just learned about it but I’m not sure how long it’s been out? I usually don’t like jumping on a product as soon as it comes out. Companies usually make a few tweaks to the original product.
  11. Hi all. First off- please don’t turn this tread into a rage vs all other companies debate. for some reason, I Just learned about the new rage design with no collar with some kind of self locking mechanism. Has anybody looked into these? I’ve been a fan of rage for years and have had great results with the originals, chisel tip, and hypodermic. There have been a few times however when I’ve bumped a blade out of the collar and Worried about it after putting it back in. This new no collar design seems to eliminate that concern. I watched a few reviews online but wanted to know if anybo
  12. I’m looking at buying the exact same truck. Did you have a truck before this? What was your experience like shopping for it?
  13. If we all went back in time 20-30 years, I’m sure we would be blown away at the bows that are out now. I’m sure back then, if someone told you bows would be 4 lbs and shoot 350fps you’d say “no way.” That being said, what do you think bow technology will produce in the next 10-20 years? Bows that somehow shoot 375 with a comfortable draw? Some type of composite material that will make 2-3 lb bows the norm? If you were to guess about compound bows of the future, what do you think?
  14. I recently obtained permission to hunt a great property for next bow season. I put out some cams in January and I had a ton of deer including several mature bucks. Here’s my dilemma... the perfect spot for a stand is 100 yards past the property line- which is a stone wall. The 2 large properties come to a natural funnel. I spoke to the other property owner and there are already other guys that gun hunt it so I will not be allowed to, even during bow season. Today I spent 2 hours scouting the new property. Several deer trails, rubs, and scat everywhere. I would stand at a tree which I wou
  15. If you do have a back up bow, what is your arrangement? Did you upgrade recently and keep your older one? Are they both equal quality? I was out of commission for 3 weeks this bow season as my bow was being repaired from damage sustained in early October. I def don’t want that to happen again. I’m deciding between buying another high quality bow or perhaps buying a mid level bow to keep just in case I need it.
