The ok tell of what tree

Postby Elkhunttoo » 08 13, 2022 •  [Post 1]

Just got home from putting up the other 2 of my three stands. Yes, it’s 1 am and I’m super tired…it took us a while to select the tree at the first site today…then when we got the steps up we didn’t like the view at all to we moved it to another tree…it took a while but the set up seems solid and I think it will be a great spot…by the time we got the stuff packed into the second stand location we were super tired…this is a good location but we are trying to find a tree to cover both water crossing’s … we put it on a tree that I would of never thought originally but it should be good…ran out of energy and daylight so we hiked out in the dark and that spot still needs a bit of work. When we were about 75-100 yards from the four wheeler a couple wolves started howling right by our wheeler…I had my labs with me and so that was a little worry but we got loaded up and out of there with no problems

So hope we got the stands in the right trees…we also made it into the other stand we put up a few weeks ago and got all of the lanes cleared out…it should be ready to go

Sounds like you are about ready. A few good pictures would help us see what you have. If you don't have any now, please get some this season. I will do the same.

My tree climbing days are over.
I've spent a few hours a couple nights at my ground blind.

That must have hurt standing on your head for hours. Either that or your picture is upside down. :D
