I can't help but wonder, what non-hunting, boneheaded, genious at the DNR made the command decision to put the "Special 4 Day Gun Hunt" right smack dab in the middle of the PRIME TIME part of the Bow Hunting season. Why coudn't they have put it at the begining of the Bow Hunt or just added 4 days at the end of the regular gun hunt.
Bow Hunting is like a religion to the true dedicated Bow Hunters. It just doesn't seem right, especially when Bow Hunters have been scouting, patterning and reconing the movements of deer in their woods for months.
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?
