That kid is so lost. first of all, hockey hasn't been a sport since 1980. 

Is it any wonder that the words "Hockey" and "Who Cares" have almost the same letters :rofl:

I can't comment on heated vests but Under Armour cold gear base layers has worked wonders for me. I have 2.0 and 4.0. I hate the cold and I was fine in the 4.0 in -20 to -30 temps for 8 hours per day. I typically wear the 2.0 in NY hunting deer if temps are under 30. If it gets under 15 or so I go with the 4.0.
I've got a great base layer from Cabela's that is fantastic as long as I'm moving but sitting still I tend to get a bit chilly. Hopefully snag some baffins at an end of season sale for next year

Just 2 fawns blew by like tumbleweed this morning, wind really picked up around 9:30 and seeing as how I don't want to be killed by a falling tree I bailed.

I have a Cabela's heated vest. I wear it over my base layer no matter the weather. To me, even when it is 50 degrees out, when you are sitting still for hours you can get a chill. I have 3 batteries for it. You need extra batteries for sure. It also allows me to dress less bulky....

My good buddy who is a DEC officer confiscated a dandy 8pt this morning. Guy shot it from his vehicle last night with a 22mag. Neighbors blew him in.

Agreed, the penalties are too light in NY.

Not to mention the summit viper has been consistently number 1 in all of the reviews for years. LW is heavier, less comfortable, more expensive. Only thing it has going in its favor is it packs flat

I don’t know how/why any of you guys are still using climbers? My saddle and 6 screw in steps get me 20ish ft in the air in less than a few minutes completely silent and weighs under 4lbs combined. If I was going to use it on state land I would use my climbing sticks and do the same thing maybe even faster but they aren’t as easy to carry as the screw in steps, although way better than a clover.

Climbers are archaic, I probably have 1500$ in climbers out in the barn and I will never touch another one again.

Soooooo.... is anybody hunting this morning?

I was out, just came in for some lunch and a nap. Rattled in a buck this morning only deer I seen and I couldn’t identify it because it never came out of the honey suckle.

Idk I like to be able to hang stuff from my climber. Can you do the same with a saddle setup? I ask because I honestly have no idea as these saddle things are pretty new

Right on Biz!!!
It's us "real" hunters, that hunt from the ground!!!....................:pleasantry:
I have a Summit Viper that has not seen use in years. Very comfortable, and easy to use. The added straps make it easy to pack in too. Thought about selling it, but will save it for my grandson, who will be old enough next year to use it.

Bought my Summit Viper 19 years ago and just replaced the cables on it this year. I love that thing but I hate lugging it around. Even though it’s light walking a mile or more with it strapped to your back sucks. Have tried a few other brands that friends have but none compare. Never tried a LW though

Started raining so I came in. Sat in two different area didn’t see anything. I think it’s this East wind. I’m going to start keeping track of it. I gave that log book crap up a few years a go,but maybe it’s worth trying it up here.

People who have so many issues with climbers must be doing something wrong. My 2 vipers pack up in less than 2 minutes, it nests tight, no noise, the seat is like a recliner in a tree. I bought the summit backpack straps and added a third hand bowholder. My pack straps to the nested climber and a carabiner attaches the backpack straps. I love my summits. They aren't as light as some other options but I can stay comfortable dark to dark. I'll take a bit of extra weight rather than sacrifice comfort with a saddle or hang on stand.

Most forum members have a 42" vertical leap. so the first step is 42". Then you take it easy with 36" between steps, so all in you are 18.5 feet (222") with 6 steps. The final move is a simple 18" step onto the platform. Hence, 6 steps = 20 feet. Maybe you didn't play in NFL or NBA?

Yes at Sweeneys you can take the whole deer.

How long you been out of the Forks? I've lived there for the last 14 years. I'm sure we probably know some of the same people.    
 

I’ve been out 7-8 years but have family there and nieces and nephews in school.
