The way I figure it, the Good Lord grants us a certain number of days on this planet. I sure wouldn't want to face him someday and try to explain why I spent two hundred of them sitting on top of a phone pole for no reason other than to say I did it for longer than anyone else.
I agree w/Exp. seriously what a waste of time!! so what d'u do for a living...oh I sit on poles 200days out of the year...!!!! Where's the compition in a "game" like that?? Of course alot of ppl would do just about anything for 3 meals a day. Plus if ur doing that you can't shoot at things like when ur in a tree stand. That would make it interesting tho if you could shoot at things while waiting!!
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
