I would hang a stand and haul the sticks in each time I hunted it. Keeps your tree stand safe and keeps your climbing sticks save as well. The other plus is that others can't get in your stand and use it.

If it's the field I'm thinking, get on the holler side of the creek and sneak down there and get between them and the woods.

Another thing to consider is that if you've been watching them, so has somebody else. Especially in a spot that's close to a major road or highway. I'd try to be as low profile as possible, carry in & carry out.


The only reason I suggest that is while hunting urban spots, I've experienced first hand, people hanging stands right next to my own. It's made me rethink my approach. This season I'm trying to go completely unnoticed to other hunters by taking my sticks & stand in and out for each hunt, unless I'm going to hang for an evening hunt, then return for a morning hunt in the same spot.

It's in the middle of Vinton County. The biggest concern with someone else seeing them also is that someone poking a rifle out the window. lol.

Haha! Gotcha.... I read words like "highway" and start thinking about some of the places I hunt near home... completely different hunting when you can sit there and watch rush hour traffic on a Friday night.
