Hi. Welcome to The Gun Rack. No doubt, your journey here has been a long one. But rejoice! For you have arrived at a place like no other. A place where goats and Chevettes dwell in harmony. A place where Glock fanboys and HiPoint hipsters coexist with mutual respect for one another. A place where even crocs are considered cool. Well, not really, but those that wear them are still accepted. Hell, even the owner of the site is a kilt wearing Californium. So register, log in, and become a part of the most eclectic gun forum on the interwebs. You'll be glad you did 😉

    I just use a stand like this from Cabela's.

    [​IMG]

    I think it was about 80 bucks at Cabela's

    Includes sections to reach 13 feet but that feels wobbly to me. I remove one 4 foot section. More stable for my fat self at 9 feet.

    I set it up a day or two before opening day.

    Yeah I'd like some ideas to. No worries I already have the life jacket covered. I've considered just using a ground blind also. Not sure which way to go.

    I use a Summit climber. Can't remember the name right now, but it's like this one. No front rail, I thought that would bother me but I feel fairly secure in it. I don't climb very high with it, 18' at most...usually about 15'.
