    Tree stands are up

    Spent Labor day getting two hanging stands up. The new stand is setting on intersection of secondary ridge and transition area of back edge of main ridge. Not sure that makes since. The one and only picture I got is of inside corner of corn field.

    Fruit Tree Problems

    I have 2 pear trees (one is Bartlet, can't remember the other) and an apple tree in my yard, as well as 2 peach trees. Both pear trees were loaded with pears to the point that many branches were dragging the ground. Well, the deer took care of that long before the pears were even close to...

    I'm wanting to get my dad back into hunting this year, and I've stumbled upon a Tree Lounge for sale for a great price..the thing is though, I know he would hate using it as a climber every time out.

    Tree stands and ground blinds

    Guys, I really hate doing this. I try to avoid it actually. However, given how many people have shown the desire to purchase ground blinds or tree stands in the "Must haves" thread, I am going to throw out a shameless plug. I do so only so you might know what we have to offer. We sell...

    I am hunting from a millennium m100 treestand this season and am trying to figure out the best bow holder option for the set up.

    Wicked Tree Saw

    It is getting to be that time of year when a lot of people start hanging there stands. I hand and move a lot of stands each year and I do a lot of trimming for trail camera placement. Most years I would go through 1 or 2 hand saws, and quite a few of them were really flimsy. I bought a Wicked...

    WARNING: Check your tree stands

    Yesterday evening I had a bit of a scare. I hunted a stand I helped a friend hang in 2010. The stand was new, but he left it in the tree and over the past two years the weather played hell on it. I was hunting for about an hour when that afternoon T-storm rolled in. I debated about riding...

    Persimmon Tree

    I have a real good persimmon tree on a property that I hunt, and was curious as to when I should focus alot of attention to hunting or hanging a camera by it. I would assume that after a frost that they would begin to fall. Its location is between a bedding area and an oak flat that has an...

    New Member! Save A Tree Eat A Beaver!

    No I'm not a tree hugger, lol I'm originally from a small private lake in Oklahoma called Cedar Lake but now live in Phoenix, AZ. As kids we'd ride our dirt bikes off into the woods and hunt for whatever we could find but we never really found anything, maybe some birds and a few squirrels is...
