I don’t even wanna tell you how to take a header from a “ground stand”:D but for sure don’t try to knee walk downhill into a gully. I spooked all three of the bucks I thought I’d get ahead of for an attempted ambush. I reckon if they lived long enough they’re still laughing (it’s been 10 years or so since that happened, older now and perhaps a bit wiser):?:?
Maybe I be glad there’s no trees where I hunt to stand in. A header might be a bit rougher on me if’n I was elevated some.:roll:
Mesquites are not trees. They are thorny monsters.
Seriously I’m glad we talk tree stand safety. Sure don’t want anyone buggered up for taking shortcuts.
