Thanks a lot for your in put, i am 59 yr's old been hunting about 40 yr's can't do hang-on but with a climber it's easier on the knees and bad back.

Because I hunt mostly from ladder stands I go in 30-40 minutes before daylight. No matter how careful you are jumping deer is always an issue that we can't predict nor fool them in their own back yard. They will be back and most times just wait you out and return to their normal activities. I leave when I can't see anymore and try to time it when I'm not seeing or hearing any woods movement. I'm also in the upper 50's and like ladder stands for safety reasons. I have a new climber but just haven't got the nerve to use it yet. It's going down to S. Ohio so we'll see maybe I'll try it. I use a modest fanny pack to pack all my gear into.

I have a little bag.. this one---> http://www.deerhuntersclub.com/hunti...l-pack-review/

I usually throw a water bottle, snacks and my gut knife in that bag. My calls and spare ammo are usually in my pockets. Before I climb my tree I attach my bag to my top rack of my stand.

As far as what time I get in the woods and leave. I like to get there early but am usually running behind and make it right before daylight. In the evening I hunt until I cannot shoot anymore. I have a head lamp I use to come down out of my tree so I can see everything.

Use a harness. You dont want your stand to slip or something and go a falling!
Thanks for your in-put i will see who cares it great idea good hunting
