Decided last season I was tired of looking for trees that were straight enough and branchless enough to climb with a conventional climber. The areas I hunt frequently have few or no climable trees with a conventional stand. Recently I ordered a "Lone Wolf" alpha assault model and a set of Lone Wolf climbing sticks to reach some of those harder to hunt spots. Heres some pics of the unit. I'm impressed cause the climbing sticks fit right onto the stand its self. The 4 sticks weigh 10 lbs and the stand is 8.5 lbs so its an easy carry. I just took a little walk with this outfit on and was impressed at how it carries. Tomorrow or next day, I'm gonna field test it on several trees to see how it handles.
