Well going by the options that you presented a climber is way more versatile than a ladder and will get you into a heck of alot more places. Then your scope is pretty much the most important piece to the puzzle because you need to see what you're shooting at and does it fog all the time or in certain weather conditions? I would go for a new scope because whether you are on the ground or in a tree you need to know that your optics can be counted on during that moment of truth.

i should also say iv got a real nice scope on my shot gun i could put on my .270, but its only a 1.5x-5x X32. id trust that scope if my lfe depended on it. then i could get the climer and a red dot scope for my shot gun.

I'd say go for a good set of optics. That way you can at least see what you are shooting at from your uncomfortable "hang on". But that's just my opinion.

If I had an extra $200 I would give it to Toys for Tots or give it to a cause to help fallen Vets.

im starting to lean towards a nice game camera. the one i got is junk. i often get pics of nothing but woods cause it takes so long to take the pic than the animal has moved on before the pic is taken. i can always drop that nice scope from my shotgun on to my .270.

I would go for the Pro staff. Just my two cents. Good luck.
