What about climbing sticks and a platform stand? I think you can get them fairly cheap at some of the online sporting goods stores.
I have a different issue:
1-I mainly hunt a military base, which is shut down until the government re-opens. I like hunting there since it is convenient and are a lot of deer. Usually kill 1-2 per year. My buddy has 13 acres we will be hunting instead.
2-It is going to be 85 degrees!! That will un-motivate anybody.
