What Will Get You Into A tree Stand?

Postby Swede » 01 04, 2020 •  [Post 1]

I elk hunt almost entirely from a tree stand. The only time I hunt on the ground is when someone wants me to accompany them. Even then I usually drag my feet and return to a stand ASAP. It seems I have much better success setting up in a tree over some good trails at a water hole. I don't get shin splints or blisters in my stand, but I view enough wildlife to pass much time at that. So why have you not tried stand hunting and what would it get you to grow a bushy tail and climb a tree?
