Lone Wolf Climbing Sticks

Postby BirdMan » Fri Jan 16, 2009 1:33 am

I just bought some of these and are using them for the first time.  What method does everyone use to hang their LW sticks?  How do you carry them up the tree with you, keeping your hands free for hanging the next stick?

I use a climbing belt for safety first.  But i go up and down for each stick for safety.  But i am thinking about carring a magnet attached to a drop line and layng them out on the ground to pull each one up with me as i go up.  they are very nice and light.  Good hunting!

Thanks whitacl.  Surely someone else uses these.  How do you carry them up with you so you don't have to go back down for each one?

I LOVE my LW climbing sticks.  I put one on the tree from the ground, then clumb up put the other on.. then climb down.. put my stand on my back, do my bow rope, grab the third stick, climb up put the 3rd stick on, then up and set the stand.   It's a safe and QUIET way to do it. Works for me anyway.

Correct me if i'm wrong but the steps don't look very big. Does any one have a problem with their foot slipping off? Or missin entirely? Just curious.

I've never had a problem and I'm not a little guy.  one thing to consider is that if your boots are packed full of mud.. i know commoon sense.. but clean your boots.  i've never slipped of these.

I tie them up and untie them when I get to the tree I use the saftey belt as well..SAFTEY FIRST! Ill then attach them all together on the ground and hook them up from there.

Deer Hunting peeps,
 
I use this when ascending the tree and attaching the Climbing Sticks:

I put the 1st Stick on the tree and use the Caddy to carry the other Sticks.  I've modified it a bit to allow removal of each Stick as they are being attached.  The last Stick has the Caddy attached to it.  Pretty handy.  Of course, you could always rig up something similar and cheaper...
