Depending on where you go, we have Blacktail Deer, Mule Deer, Elk, Antelope, Black Bear, Wild Pigs, Quail, Dove, Ducks, Geese, Grouse, Wild Pigeons, Rabbits, Coyotes, Mountain Lion (protected in CA.), Bob Cats, Squirrels (tree and ground), Racoon, etc. (I am running out of breath) here in California. And on the very odd day you can't find something to hunt, we have great fresh and salt water fishing (whole different forum discussion). Why, I think we are the luckiest hunters on earth; unless I happened to be living somewhere else in which case I suspect my list would be different, but just as long
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?
