    After last year royally honked me off, I ditched a lot of stuff.
    Today took a ladder stick to the woods to set a stand.
    Of course the tree I spotted late season last yr, proved dead.
    So picked a different tree, and it has curve, so the ladder stick won't lay flat against it.
    Gotta pick another tree.

    I don't have any now, but for private ground, screw in steps are great.
    EZY my preferred brand. Single fold. Double folds are just gonna bite you LOL

    Might have to order some, cheaper than going with section sticks (not joined together to form one stick).

    Public land says no screw ins.
    So may buy some Muddy not joined ladder sticks.
    IIRC close to 200 retail. Ouch.

    A dozen EZY way cheaper.............for private land only.

    Woods was green, spiders galore. No new acorns down. 65 but covered to avoid tick issues.............burned me up.
    I left my partial ladder stick on the crooked tree.
    Will move it later.

    At least I don't have to lug the thing into the woods now. Clanking and banging............just sucked.
    I've just about stopped climbing trees on public land. A pop-up blind is half the weight of a tree stand and a ground blind made from natural materials just takes a little effort.

    LOL, 65 would be nice. Our highs have been running in the mid 90's, lows in the mid 70's.

      Pack frame from early 70s (camptrails astral cruiser) 17' Grumman shoe keel my dad bought in the 60s, Grandpas field grade Elsie is just a door gun, not much interest in upland birds and not many birds here but it's probably good for two legged varmints, Wildee Experience day pack from 79 still take it for day hikes all the time has lots of sewing for reinforcement. Canteen cup early 70s.
