    Old thread I know, but, this is my 1st year hunting the regional forests in the 35 years I've lived around them. These old reports are correct, very hard to find a spot, as there's tree stands everywhere. I've been tried 6 times so far, so hopefully I'll see one or connect sooner or later.
    This isn't a test run................Enjoy er'.......

In addition to that, you never have to worry about going to YOUR stand and finding someone else already in it and dealing with that confrontation.
    X2 on the climber.......Summit Viper. I agree you never need to worry about it going missing if you take it out with you when you leave. But I did leave mine out for 2 weeks and when I went back to use it one afternoon the squirrels chewed the crap out of my seat - had to stand for that hunt. New seat was $100 - lesson learned.

    X3 on the summit viper climber. Most comfortable and safe stand out there. I believe many people are very limited with ladder stands, even on private land they regularly hunt. The use of ladder stands limits you to one spot unless you have multiple stands. This means you're limited to sitting on the ground if you have bad wind. Not only that but whenever I leave stands I notice animals ALWAYS look at the stand first. I've noticed it from 2 year old bucks that move around them to avoid them and from young bears before they hit the bait. Whenever I sit in a climber/temporary stand they never look my way unless I give them a reason to.

    I've been living in Halton Hills for 30 years too, though now I spend most of my time up north. Always looking for a new location to hunt, new people to hunt with. Also bow season lasts 2 weeks longer down here. I know a few local farmers, I should talk to them and see if they'll let me hunt their land. One has 300 ac, bordering the Credit River.
