There is almost nil public land for Turkey in this GMU. One state wildlife area, but 2 of the 4 limited licenses are restricted from using it. Another parcel is national park land and hunting is not allowed. The biggest landowner was an elderly land who leased all of his property to another party and was able to give me a name but not a contact number. Did see some Rio's on the opposite side of the river and a few on the near side, but was unable to determine who owned that particular field.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
