I agree with the sticks and bolts. Except if you log the trees on your property I don’t put bolts in so they don’t grow into the tree or I have to take them out when getting logged. I stick with the sticks. Quick easy and mobileIf you’re hunting private land or your public land allows it you can’t beat a drill and grade 8 bolts for presets. If you’re gonna run and gun I think sticks are your best bet. Some guys like a hand drill and bolts but I still don’t think I can drill holes easier and quicker than I can hang 3 sticks
i want to go to that later on but im to receive my saddle next week during the rut and im going to use tree steps pre drilled to start with . i like the look of the cain method.I use 6 wild edge steps with the Cain method it gets to about 20 feet super quick and super easy. I will say that the wild edge steps have a learning curve but once you learn what it takes to cam them over on the first try it’s great compact light climbing method.
thanks the tree saddle is all new and im do to get it at the end of this week according to the lady i talked to so i was going to prep some trees for bolts .Sounds like you have already discovered the easiest way to climb a tree to hunt.
