Very nice Hog!!! Surprised they are still holding.
Planning my first trip up to Bishop, or further up to Mammothe this summer to go camping. Always wanted to see some of the Tules up there, in those zones, so I'll hopefully get some good shots. I put in for the Bishop or Independance zones each year to no avail.
You ever hunt the Rosevelts up that way? Too far for me to drive, gotta stick with the Tules in the Valley, or maybe FHL.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
