Im lookin for a used (not like I cud find one new) Baker Climbing stand that somebody maybe has stored up collecting dust somewhere and may not need it. If so id like to buy it at a resonable price as long no known deaths have came from any of them. I dont want to haunted.

I can't imagine why anyone would want one unless you're involved in the filming of the next [censored] movie.

Lol I just looked it up to see what you were talking about. Never heard of a baker tree stand had to see what was so dangerous about it. After looking at the pics I recognized it. I have one and you are welcome to it.

I still have a couple of them and they were the beginngs of a new era of deer hunting from elevated stands. First came the stand and then the adapter for a seat. All I miss from the old Bakers is the weight. They weighed next to nothing and packed flat. They were an accident waiting to happen.

Don't EVEN try to demonstrate how those things work on a light pole. I don't care who you are, that's funny right there.

I have my dads old one in the shed with a piece of dangling rope to put your feet in while sitting. I cant believe he let me use it when I was 15.

I was about 16 when I bought mine. I bought a small folding stool that I could use to set on the platform. Climbed at tree at Chuck Swan unfolded my stool sat down and started to reach down to pull my bow up and here we went. Slid down that tree at a high rate of speed hit the ground and my little stool exploded. Wound up over in the leaves unscathed. I still laugh when I think about it.

I think there are quite a few of us, lol! I still remember my last hunt with a borrowed one back in the early 90's. I did kill a deer, a heavy bodied 6pt. I have one in my basement somewhere.

I think I still have 1 in the basement, I will check. Deaths associated, no. Near death experiences, a few. \:o

Please tell me u didnt really. Or if u did how many pulls did u make it?

I climbed opening day with one and got about 12 feet up my tree and instantly felt weightless. What was bad is 3feet from the bottom it bit into the tree and I swear i had a car wreck once that didnt hurt as bad. I layed there for over an hour and hear deer blowing at me the whole time but I didnt care. Thank goodness I didnt break anything.

Na, my old man was tight when I was little. He's always just given me hand me down hunting stuff and I never complained once as long as got to hunt with him. So he bought a loggy and I got the Baker. Thing is that loggy with the rubber band slipped just as much as mine. I still make fun at him about giving his own son such a death trap. He just smiles and says "it made u a better hunter", but yet been doggin me for yrs about wearing a saftey belt til I started this yr. Ah well. I still love that man no matter what.

Was it on archery talk? Was the thread starter poleaxe? I started that one too. There were tons of peoples testimonies about their experiences and near death. If anybody has time u can google baker treestand and in the search results look for one on archery talk. People wrote their stories for months. Each funnier than the last. Itl brighten your darkest day if u read it.

Try and limit your visits over there. I hit the door and never looked back. Why would u want to talk to rude, innconsiderate, children with no manner rather than come to tndeer where everyone is kind, helpful, and would give u the shirts off their back. I dont care nothing about that place other than that thread.

No, it wasn't archery talk. I've visited over there but the layout hurts my eyes (really). The layout is chaotic.

It was actually Georgia Outdoor News. Great stories.
