I too always love reading your no nonsense quality hunting info advice. You ever make it out to to the east side of the Rockies lemme know we'll hunt elk in the canyon or coyotes on the plains or both!
I might have to take you up on the dog hunt. It has been a while since I went after them and there are not too many of them in my neck of the woods during the winter.
I have been using a 7-30 Waters shooting a 120 grain Nosler balistic tip at 2200fps, but am trying to figure out another caliber to shoot out of it, but I do love that 7-30. I may stick on the 357 Herrett barrel for this upcoming season. The last time that I used that caliber I dropped a raghorn 4x4 elk with it.
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?
