Default Re: Advantage or not

Climbers are definitely at a disadvantage where I hunt. A lot of oaks, ash, maples, other hardwoods and they won't climb at least 75% of the trees around here. You'll never have that problem with hang-ons and screw in steps or lightweight climbing sticks. I use screw in steps on private ground and sticks on public ground. I just leave the stands hang and only have to carry the climbing sticks in. I'll assure you I can climb up and be in the stand at least as fast, probably faster than a climber. Private ground stands are hung and left, on public ground you get them out as soon as allowed and by the rut they will not even pay attention to them.
