    Re-drilling existing holes

    I felt the need to share this with others that use the drill & bolt system and drill the same tree more than once; My first season with the drill & bolt system was 1983. But, it was only several years ago that I started using a cordless drill motor to pre-drill trees. I never considered using...

    Woodpecker, EZ-Kut and Treehopper comparison.

    When Jerry Simmons sold his broadhead company, a decade or so ago, the new owner didn't continue the Woodpecker hand drill. By this time I had pretty much replaced my spurs with the drill & bolt system as my primary climbing method. Knowing that I had already went through a couple of Woodpecker...

    I had a problem....

    with my knee pads and small diameter trees when using a platform. There would only be room for one knee, and I had to keep switching knees or when I tried to use both they would separate. I used a piece of cord to tie around my legs just above my knees and it worked. In fact, so good that I used...

    Problem solved!

    This past season was my first using a saddle. Having pre-ordered a Kestrel it was mid season before it arrived. Didn't take long for me to get it adjusted and become comfortable using it. The only problem I had was when I accidently bumped my hanging bow and the arrow fell to the ground. This...

    My new Acadian Woods Recurve Bow

    Having shot an unbelievable number of arrows from my Acadian Woods recurve for over 24 years, Tim Mullins must have thought it was time for me to replace it with another updated model. It's basically the same bow as my other one, except 2" longer and 10 pounds lighter, with all the bells and...

    Wild Edge steppladder system ???

    Lately I've become interested in adding the Wild Edge steppladder system to my climbing methods. Of course I would want to keep the system as light and minimum as possible. My question is, using the "Build Your own Steppladder" option and using the Steppladder Aider.... what would be the least...

    A thread named "Pictures".

    May 11, 2007 I started a thread, on another site, sharing some of my pictures through third party Photobucket, with narration. I never dreamed that it would grow to 74 pages (1500 pictures) before I lost the interest to continue. Sometime last year Photobucket made it impossible to see them and...

    Replacing the bridge carabiner??

    Spent some time with my Kestrel today. Decided to see how using a bowline knot to replace the carabiner on my bridge would work. I've had a lot of experience using the bowline and find it simple, quick and easy to tie and untie, even after it's been under a load. I've never experienced any...

    Lock-On Limit stand for a platform

    I'm really enjoying the Kestrel, but not so much the ameristeps platform. Today on a whim, I tried using my lock-on Limit stand for a platform. It worked so good that I took the seat off of a spare Limit stand that I have and tried it. Worked even better. One of my main reasons for going to the...

    My Kestrel saddle came in Friday......

    Since then I've logged in a couple of hours in the yard getting use to it. And, have made two hunts with it for another three hours. First hunt without the back strap and the second with it. The back strap really made a lot of comfort difference. Felt like I was in a recliner. I'm getting more...
