Amen on the aging and adjusting. I walked just a small area on Friday carrying a stand and about croaked. Set one up in a hemlock stand… there were deer there within the last 12 months or so…:roll:
The Sat, I got with a buddy up that way and we set another stand, used my pole pruner to clear some shooting lanes, then did the same at my Friday set site, then set one for him, I did the trimming and then we moved an old ladder stand of his!
I was whupped! Working country like those gorgeous pictures of yours, while so very beautiful, is like my Montana adventures when I was in my early 30’s….a “thing of the past 😀
