Q:OK how many time have you got to the stand only to find you have forgotten to dawn your safety harness? Go up the tree with out. I use a climber and for the most part I use a harness, but I have in the past used the climber without a safety harness on a tree I am familiar with. Go up or go home? Second question do most of you use a ratchet strap along with your climbers?
Q:I have never hunted out of (or even put up) ladder stands before and I bought two different used ladder stands over the winter. Other than the straps, is there anything else that I will need to put them up? I assume that I can find some instructions on-line and that most ladder stands are basically the same. Am I right?
