I like the extra climber pins idea. I had to learn that one the hard way in the dark a few years back.
Another hard lesson - I had an incident many years ago where I slipped in between the top and bottom halves of my climber. I hadn't tied a string between them, and it was before full harnesses. The single strap started squeezing the breath out of me, and if I hadn't had a knife in my pocket to cut the strap and let me shimmy to safety, who knows? I always keep a knife and whistle in my pocket just in case I fall or my pack falls. What good are they if they're in a pack 30 feet up a tree and I'm not.
One other thing - I keep a a turkey mouth call to practice soft calling. It doesn't seem to affect the deer at all. If you run into a flock, you can have a little fun with kee kees and such. If it's bow season, you may even get a shot. I got a hen last fall just goofing off in the bow stand. I didn't actually call it in - the flock wandered into range, and I luckily didn't get busted. I wanted to see what they'd been eating, so I took the photo of the crop contents. All the hoppers, walking sticks, acorns, and seeds are completely whole.

My lord I thought I was the only one who went into the woods prepared for the appocolypse. I have all the nescessities: knife, license, calls, scent, first aid kit, 550 cord, binos & range finder and a leatherman plus extra stuff like release and sight for my bow and a snack and water. It only weighs 15 pounds couple that with my 23 pound treestand and I am floating like a butterfly @ 40 pounds of gear!
