I do have a deer stand prep question. Like this deer hunting discussion and too lazy to babysit a new thread. My necks starting to swell up and I have an urge to rub my forehead on trees and get downwind of bicycle parking racks. Getting seriously pumped about my upcoming hunt back home in Wisconsin. Got plenty of tags. If the rain don't stop, will be hunting lake shore instead of swamp/high ground edge areas. For those of you that hunt out of ladder stands. One of my hunting Bud's has Parkinson's. He had an issue with a stepladder while helping his daughter, broke ribs, etc. Doctor asked him if he hunted and in particular in treestands. Was advised not to do so. You know he's gonna hunt, only 72. He's the old fart in camp, I'm the nubbin, only 70. My other hunting bud who is at damn near dead territory at 71 and I are working on fall restraint ideas for the old fart. I wear a harness and use a fall guy retractor or prussiac knot rope system for my hang on stands. Climbing a ladder stand is a smidge different. I'm thinking, still use the harness system but instead use the D rings at the harness waist for attachment. Is there a better way? Don't wanna lose the old fart.
