With a tight budget, I'm not sure that I would devote money to the moose. I'm not even sure why this is called a "reintroduction", since it is my understanding that there is little evidence that a viable moose populations have ever existed in CO. Admittedly it is a stretch to call Grand Mesa "northern colorado" (as sighted in the link), but if they didn't exist in the rainier areas of the north, why would they exist in the south?
I have nothing against moose (I think they are cool actually) just seems that if the moose were never really here in significant numbers, it seems hard to justify putting more money toward "reintroducing" them.
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?
