New toy... Climbing Tree Stand
Over the last couple of seasons hunting in our terrain i've had a number of close calls but due to limited visibility and vegetation at ground level I have not been able to take the shot. I have been looking at the climbing tree stands used in the USA by bow hunters as a way to get me off the ground and increase my visibility, making more areas huntable and also getting my scent away from ground level, well to cut to the chase I ordered Realtree Outfitters Series Viper Ultra from the states. I've been playing around with it the last couple of weekends and it's fantastic, it adds a whole new perspective to the hunt and opens up countless other opportunities which were previously not available. The good thing about this model is that it packs together and comes with shoulder straps so you can carry it in and out of the terrain with ease. I've also purchased a flexible tripod so I can attach my video camera to the tree stand so hopefully i'll get some good footage.
