    I've was surprised at how well the rivers edge relaxed wide ladderstands hold up after being out a winter, enough that i'm leaving them out again this season. All on private land, would never leave anything on public.

    all my bear and moose stands are still out there for the $100 they cost it's not worth the effort hauling them home and back year after year. we use hydro steps.. got a whole shyt load from the bell canada guys years back. actually went to the pole graveyard and unscrewed hundreds. they remove easily with vice grips when if we move stand locations

    stands are unstrapped and stashed....... straps are always checked and stored at home

    Thanx guys for the impact-appreciate it.

    SK33T3R-Hydro steps are an awesome idea.Never thought of that.
    Question-if you leave it for few years,would the tree rot around the step ,like making the "hole"somewhat sloppy?

    Thanx

    not really ... what we notice is the tree actually adheres to the step tighter. these steps are 5/8" dia and are 10xs stronger then any screw in steps i've seen..
    the outside end is bent up for boot capture. it's a great feeling climbing up those. they're solid

    i predrill a 5/8" hole and pound it in then twist boot guardup

    they come out with a large set of vice grips

    i got mine all FREE. i know a couple guys that worked for Bell.

    find out in your area where the bell yard is.. where all the used telephone poles go to. then be bold and go ask. these pegs get removed and go for scrap. offer 1$ each and take all you can

    if not find out where the bell scrap goes they end up somewhere

    i had a friend who drove around in the country looking for those pegs he had a ladder and removed lots from poles

    everything bell nowadays is basically bucket trucks
