Climb as high as you want buddy. You put 2 deer down in there tracks and thats all that matters.

You had to be tired getting up and down tho \:D
not that tiring really, just took longer. Hauling the two deer out was the tiring part.

I get nervous after 15'. Cool to see that you could do it. Congrats on your deer, you are on a roll! I hope to get my 2nd of the year/ever this week around Percy Priest. What would you have done if you fell out and were hanging from the tree at 50'?
if I fell I wouldn't have hung much below the stand and could have easily climbed back onto it. Definitely a bit more risky being up so high but I felt pretty safe strapped in and I ain't too scared of heights either. Next time ill probably top out at 30 ft or less just so I can shoot under the canopy better.

I guess I would just be concerned that the stand would fall too and I would be hanging way up there. I guess if I could I would wrap around the tree and try to shimmy down a little at a time.

I thought the same thing, I am in pretty good shape so I think I could handle it, although it is not something I would ever want to do, and hope I don't have to. The stand is tied together with a rope so if the bottom falls it won't fall far and I can pull it back up. I don't see it very likely that the entire climber would just drop.

Keep in mind folks, he is still just a kid with plenty to learn. If he lives, he'll come around.

Now that is a climb! nice shootin! What kind of camera/attachment do you use with your rifle? Do you have a set-up for your bow too. I've been kicking around the idea of a bow or tree mounted camera to capture the hunt.

I cant believe so many people are whining about how high HE is hunting! He said in the original post his harness was hooked from the ground up. 25 ft up a tree or 50 ft up a tree, whats the difference if you fall? I too have had places that required I be 40+ ft to get the full advantage from a standsight. and I never thought a thing about it! To each his own, if he was doing this without a harness, at any height, it would not be wise, but not everybody is afraid of heights! And for those who said it makes things more difficult, BS, a rifle in the woods where he likely couldnt shoot past 100 yards anyway, whats more difficult? And dont even mention the angle as we have proved that not a problem years ago!
