A few questions...
How high can YOU get with a set of 3 sticks? You, maybe 16-17' max since you're tall.
What did you pay? I paid the same $154 for four sticks and bought an extra at $42. Plus shipping.
What accessories did YOU also get for your sticks? The carrying strap. But you need to get 4 Versa buttons and an extra strap since you have the Millennium. And have Greg show you what to do...

Will do, bud!
I use 2 small ropes. One tied to my belt that is tied to the stand. (so i don;t have to go down and get it) And One tied to the stand platform that is tied to my bow and pack.. Pull up the stand and hang it. Get in and reach down to grab the bow rope already tied to the platform.
That's the thing, Jack. I don't know how to keep the sticks together and attache them to a should sling, or my climbing belt. If you can take pics and post them that would be great.

They should have came with a length of strap (Circled) On the bottom of every stick is a snap button like on a jacket. The other one is on that strap. This is so that when you unhook the strap to grab a stick the strap can't fall to the ground. Snap that strap to the bottom of the bottom stick, Connect the buckle and cinch tight...
Do like Greg does in his video and swing them around front. Lay them on your linemans belt. Unbuckle and slide one stick towards you out of the stack. Cinch the rest back up and swing around your back.
I'll get pics of how i have my shoulder strap attached.
Great minds think alike. I do the same, except I hook both ropes to me, one on each side of my waist. Up the tree once, down the tree once. With the Millennium, I can have 5 sticks and the stand set in 15 minutes. It probably takes me that long once I'm in my stand to get everything situated. I always try to be in the woods plenty early, just cause I'm so particular in how I set stuff up. Then if I have some extra time, I take me a lil' nap in the Millennium.
here is a trick I use to get a few more feet. I only do this for evening hunts and if the tree is a good canidate for going high. The first stick goes about 6-7 ft off the ground. I do this by leaning a stick againt the tree, then stand on it and strap your second stick on. The re-use the stick you stood on. Also I typically put at least a 4-5 ft gap between sticks. No reason you cant get 25 ft with 3 sticks if you really want to.

Good way to get yourself hurt too. Welcome to the forum btw...
I dont deny that you could get hurt doing it.... but if your in shape, careful and comfortable with it, then im just letting people know what you CAN GET out of them. I cant stand seeing guys put a one foot gap between sticks.
Im very comfortable climbing trees and Ive been using the lone wolf sticks since they came out, Ive climbed a lot of trees and think im pretty good at it.
