Glad to see a few of you starting to get the fever too. I love to hunt muleys, especially old bucks. Over that last few years, I find myself passing a lot of muleys and coming home deerless. I really enjoy just being out there and hunting them. Don't get me wrong, if I see a big one and get a good shot, I'll take it but if I don't see a old buck, that's OK too, I'll just keep enjoying God's creation while hiking over hill and dale.

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.
