The link below will give you the state record data for both typical and non-typical whitetail deer in Tennessee. About ten years ago the state record for M/L was killed in Montgomery County, but I do not know if that deer still stands. From articles I've read in the past, Ft Campbell has still got several deer among the largest ever harvested in Tennessee. (for those who don't know, Ft. Campbell, Ky., is more than 2/3rds located in Tennessee. The post's post office lies across the Kentucky border, however)
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?
