Hard to do that there Winchester if your only hunting for a few days on public land. I don't have the luxury of hunting private land or lease. I usually don't hunt 30 yards from the truck or four wheeler either. I have trekked as far as a mile to get away from hunting pressure. I would like to see you hike that far and remember your exact hunting location without a GPS or markers! Or let me guess your one of those who can read the stars,sun and the moon to get to your stand. LOL!!

No Star reading for me, but I promise you, if I find a place in the daylight, decide to hang a stand, I guarantee you I can find it the next time I need to in the dark, guarantee ya!!!!!! So can anybody else with just a little bit of woods skills and the mind to pay attention! I've hunted just a tad on public property, maybe a few hundred days over the years, never ventured far from the truck however, bout 50 minutes is as far as I have ever walked to a stand in TN. But I guess your right, now after doing it for 26 years I need to start marking my trail for everybody to see!!! Order me 2 please!

Winchester your trade mark on the bottom of your reply says it all. Your probably the toughest guy I've ever had a conversation with. I DIDN'T ASK FOR YOUR OPINION, I WAS JUST TRYING TO HELP SOMEONE OUT. So if you want to argue with someone go to the general forum. Your not going to get a rise out of me through the computer.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

if you really want to save you money then put the reflective tape on clothes pins and you can take them back down when you leave that stand.

I totally agree, and im trying to help you out, seriously, if you will learn to go to and from your stand without having to put up markers you will be much better off! Take your own advice on the arguing, you made the first smart alec response to me, outta nowhere.

I would have to disagree on that comment.

Hate to admit it but once I hunted a new Farm, In the after noon I found a stand built years ago.
Decided to hunt from it that afternoon, The next morning decided to hunt from it again.
Got out there at O-dark-30 walked in and looked all over for that stand. Decided to just sit at the base of a tree.
When day light came I was sitting 20 feet from the stand. Markers would have been nice that day.


Been there, done that.

I actually combine both systems. I like to hunt out of the way places and usually there is an old skidder trail or something that gets me within a few hundred yards, I will then set up a non-reflective natural marker where I need to leave the trail. As I head to my stand I will bend twigs down at eye level so in the morning with a light I can see them. I will mark my stand with two bright eyes so I can see it as I get close. I have taken to this system over the years due to stand theft. Its way to easy for a thief to come in at night and clean stands out of the woods. I will not get stolen from again because I gave them a nice reflective trail to my stand.
