Gorilla Tree stands recieved the "2007 Best of The Best" award from Field and stream.

The Gorilla Pro-Series Greyback™ Deluxe Hunter Model 47026 is probably the quietest, safest & lightest to haul around climber tree stand I've ever used
and I think If you shop around you can find them for around 150 bucks. that's my opinion.

That Equalizer looks great the leveling feature would be handy. I am afraid to ask how much.

i think they, the wally world gorillas, are great, for the $$. just have to get rid of that fishing net seat and get one like on the summit. got 5 set up like that and they're super. $50 for the climber (after hunting season clearance), $15 for a new seat. total $65. and you can't shake them out of the tree once they are locked in.

I'm guessing you probably havent seen their newest design, it's super comfy.

Pro-Series Greyback™ Deluxe Hunter

I'm not positive but about 2 months ago I saw one at Dicks sporting goods and I think it was 159.95 or 169.95
So i'd bet they can be found on the net for a buck fifty..

Unhappy I received a brcrhuo

I received a brcrhuoe in the mail today from Windermere called Home Update (volume 32, issue 2). It contains some tax information and has a sidebar titled Inheriting Real Estate. It states in part: After being suspended in 2010, the tax sometimes called the death tax because it's imposed on the real estate and money inherited from loved ones who have passed away has been reinstated, but with all-new rules. One big change is the amount you can exempt from the tax, which is now $5 million. That means if you inherited property (and/or other valuables) in 2011, you'll only pay tax if the total inheritance was great than $5 million. Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not a tax professional), but I don't think there is a federal inheritance tax in this country. And I don't think this is a matter of semantics (inheritance/estate). The last sentence is wrong either way. You don't pay federal tax on what you inherit; the estate is what is taxed, when it exceeds $5 million. Again, if someone knows differently, please educate me.

I had been looking at the climbers but after reading these post and watching the video I think i'll stick to my box stands. I can build a decent 4x8 for $165 with Lexan windows. It just don't get much safer than a box and my girls can hunt with me too.
