If your hunting the same tree just leave it hooked to the base of it instead of packing it in and out each time. if on private land or you trust the area your hunting that's what I do if I use my climber, not much sence packing it in an out for no reason if you don't need to.
Well thanks for in put, but i bought the climber because my permanent ones keep getting stolen. Different areas to they were chained to big trees some of these crook are not hunt for deer. four areas two stands gone so i decided to get a climber, but thanks again.
