Tree stepsContributors to this thread:
What do you tree stand gurus recommend for tree steps?
As I've gotten older, it's all ladder stands!
I use screw in steps. Bottom five are API sky hooks or bear claws that hang on a bolt and take the off when you leave
Lone wolf sticks or ezy hang screw ins
Make that "ezy climb" the one's made by cranford
Ez climb by Cranford are by far easiest to screw in imo
Oops, climbing sticks is what I'm after. Thanks guys.
I use Jim stepp steps, the ones I personally use I cover in hockey tape and then they stack into each other so and when I fold up my portable I lock the steps into the stand all the metal is covered so no noise and a very quiet and light set up for those scrub oak type trees that are impossible with a climber, they aren't made anymore but I have an original un used set forsale if your interested..
Depends, I have 60 plus stands and have used most everything from giant nail to huge lag bolts but as far as screw in Ameristep grizzlies are very good they are a heavier gauge steel. Shawn
I use Lone Wolf, like em
I've been using Lone Wolf sticks for the last about 10 years. I really like them. I hang and hunt every time I go. Takes me about 12 minutes to get set up and in my stand with 4 sticks and a Lone Wolf Alpha hang on.
Cheap climbing sticks from Menards or Fleet Farm for a lot of the stands that stay out on our land. Muddy and Lone Wolf climbing sticks for mobile.
