We will be in 16e for archery elk and will help as much as possible after the hunt. Information has been really slow with no replies. What is the date of the hunt and will you be able to scout ahead of time. Is the deer hunt for the entire unit 16.
I have hunted 16D for archery elk for the past 5 years, except this year I drew 3rd choice 16E. I have always seen a few great deer in 16D during early September. I picked up a left over Archery deer tag for 16 this January and hunted a week and never saw a single deer. Anyway I usually see deer in Moraga Canyon in unit 16D. For deer you have all the 16 units together. I am not sure when those deer move out of there, but they have been there the past several years during Sept. I have always heard 16E holds deer, I will let you know what I see.
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?
