1st live hunt state land haddam.
saw 2 small doe on the way in watched them in thick stuff for 40 mins at 40yrds then continued out to this blowdown that Im hunting from
on the edge of a funnel between 2 ridges between food and bedding area wind swirling so using nose jammer
Anything else yet
Sitting on a steep-ass hillside huh??
quiet so far, Id rather be in my tree stand but someone must have borrowed it, risk of hunting state land I guess
Just the shot angle
Gotta buy a climber! Or use screw in pegs and remove them when you leave!
You are not supposed to affix a stand to tree on state property anyways, Carry in and carry out. It’s public land not private.
Yes it was a ladder stand thats what I get, Im not upset about it. Im surprised someone bumped into it. Its pretty deep in, oh well. I dont trust climbers they have slipped on me before
Just take your time and get the proper safety straps and you’ll be good.
Ive had the platform slip down dont think theres really a way to strap that on
From: air leak
Get the stabilizer straps from Third Hand Archery. Strap both sides, top and bottom, of your climber.
When you reach your height, cinch down both straps.
Your stand will be rock solid.
I strongly suggest you check their web site, and see for yourself.
Good luck today, shoot straight.
Thanks I will
wind died down and hear now. Its Go time for the next 40 mins
On the way back to my truck nothing else today back at it tomorrow good luck all
Not being a smart ass but what is "pretty deep in" in CT. I got the impression most were hunting small acres tracks there.
Nothing moving tonight here either. Hoping tomorrow am will be better with a little chill. Good luck, All
Deep for Ct lol meaning an hour or so hike in there are some pretty big state land parcels.
So you have spots you can be 3 miles or so (1 mile in 20 mins x 3) from a road? That would be roughly 6 miles by 6 miles or 20k+ acres. Ok that better than I thought.
Theres a couple state lands that have areas that can be half hour hike in. But not many. I dont know of any that are a hour or longer. Most lands are small and are accessible from all sides. It's tough around here to find state land that goes a mile in without access from another road.
I second the Third Hand Archery products as well. Rock solid on climbers are platform straps and bow holder. I always change the prone to rust original bow holder screws with stainless steel black plated similar screws from eBay. Otherwise those are good products.
Slow in and slow out.
I like to get off the beaten path as much as Ct will allow but yes its not really "deep" in the woods relatively speaking. That said I rarely ever see anyone on the state land areas I hunt.
X3 on the Third Hand Archery straps, makes my Baby Grand solid on a tree.
