some kids just never learn. granted i agree taking a deer with a compound is probably more difficult than a crossbow. BUT like i beleive critter gitter said in an earlier post, you still have to be in the woods, find the deer, aim, hold steady, and all the stuff that goes along with a rifle or muzzleloader hunt at a reduced yardage. |
just wait till i see you at church boy. its on ...
just kidding folks im trying to teach this young un a few things about hunting. but yall know how teenagers can be.

|joel the signman||on a saftey note you should alll go to the treestand association of america website,i misplaced the link alot of recalls are going on and saftey harnesses as well.I have a copy of field and stream or outdoor life that shows the proper way to build them yourself ill have to look for it.Tree stands that is.Stay safe|

no apology needed roz i think we could figure that one out. |
what is funny is the fact that i did not even catch it till you pointed it out.

|Rozman62||Apologies - Where you see "latter" in the above message, please replace with the word "ladder".|

As I have gotton older I have gravitated to latter stands. Of the 13 stands I got out in the wild 11 are latter stands. I use 15 footers on knolls/20 footers on |
flat ground all on private land. Some are near food sources, others near bedding areas so they go hot/cold. I have had a few stolen even when locked. I've had a fear of heights but over it now. The latter stand with the full harness vest gives me the security I want. I wait post season to buy the stands from Wal-Mart,Sportmans Guide or E-bay. I have them out by July 1st for the season so the critters can get used to them. They are a pain to lug into the woods but worth it.

|joel the signman||ladder stands are great .by the way im built similar|

Man thats exactly what I was thinking.More quality time in the woods.A buddy of mine said he has a ladder stand I can use this year.I have a pop-up I used last year but it's not really made for bow hunting.Kinda small and small windows.I may check it out next time I'm at the lease.You can see by my pic that I'm about as big around as I am tall so I think I'll pass on the strap ons and climbers.I'm built kinda close to the ground also(short) lol |
Thanks for the advice so far.More questions soon.

|joel the signman||OVER /UNDER HAPPENS ALOT theres is a lot of discussion over wether or not the distance changes cuz of the angle i believe it doesnt because you are shooting at such a close range.the best way is to find out for yerself get a stand and start shooting. get one of those block targets or if you can afford it a deer style target cabelas or any good sporting good store carries these.i have a climber style tree stand but those ladder ones are real easy to use and are pretty comfortable.some guys use hang ons but i find them to be to small and uncomfortable again try for yerself enjoyno it wont ruin your gun hunting .the beauty of bow hunting is it lets you hunt before the guns start booming you can also bow hunt after gun season.Bottom line more time to hunt and be in the field.for that reason alone youll love bow hunting|
