I already have a set of the Lone Wolf climbing sticks and I just ordered an Alpha Assault stand. Anybody use the set-up like this. I believe I can hit smaller trees in areas where a climber is not suited because there are no good trees. Does your set-up make you more mobile in your opinions?

Hunting from a hangon with climbing sticks probably opens up some different setup opportunities. BUT - if you need to put your setup up and take it down due to not wanting to get it stolen - it makes for a 100X harder way of putting a stand up - unless you're a freakin' monkey!

The tree straps suck.

I have two lock on type stands. I put those up where I know I will be hunting for the season. I also have a couple of ladder stands I use in the same manner. I have one climbing stand that I use when I am mobile, hunt different areas or someone invites me over for a hunt ;\)

It works Tony. I use a summit headhunter with lone wolf sticks to get into places a climber doesn't work and leaving a lock isn't an option.

I had a Lone Wolf hang on stolen years ago when I lived in Illinois. Light weight,but not as good as a Loc-On.

The lone wolf with screw in treesteps is a deadly combination. I've gotten away from climbers just because they are too heavy to tote in.

Personally, I use a gorilla silverback (8 lbs), and carry 8-10 screw in steps in the back pack of my seat of the pants climbing harness (probably another 3 lbs) I can screw in the steps on the way up the tree with the stand on my back, set the stand, climb in it, pull all my gear up, and be ready to hunt in half the time it took with a climber. It's also a LOT quieter using treesteps. And you get the versatilty of being able to hunt smaller diameter trees, not having to trim out limbs, etc. I just unscrew the steps out on the way down.

Once you use this system, you'll never go back to a climber.

I know several guys who use crampons and a climbing belt instead of the tree steps and that works as well. I'm just not proficient at using crampons, though.
