Treestand Safety Application For Smartphones

by Scott Abbott 1. September 2011 03:33
Scott Abbott

The following Application can be downloaded on your cellular phone this fall for absolutely no cost to you. The benefit of this App. is that it could potentially save your life. Please read and pass the information to your hunting friends. Let's make this year the safest year we've all ever endured.

The people at forHuntersbyHunters in association with the Hog-g App team has completed the prototype of a treestand safety tool that will be on display at the Eastern Outdoors Sports Show in Harrisburg,Pa on 2\5-13 at the Kodak Outdoors booth.

A "first of its kind safety device" that utilizes modern technology to aid hunters in the event of a fall from an elevated hunting platform. forhuntersbyhunters are dedicated to meld modern technology with the oldest hobbies of all time, hunting and fishing. Originally designed for Hunters , SafeClimber could be used as in other ares such as roofing work, for Linemen or anywhere there is a risk of injury from falling when you are by yourself.

This much anticipated prototype is finally ready - the "SafeClimber" safety Application for all who hunt from an elevation that have or will buy a smartphone and it is FREE. Thats right, not a cent. 4HxH and the developers are more interested in saving lives than making money. We will be rewarded when the first hunters life is saved because you just can't put a price on life.
Nearly every hunter I know, myself included, knows of at least one hunter that has fallen from a treestand. Hunting accidents such as accidental shootings, rank high, but still treestand accidents are among the top reported accidents during hunting season We want to drive that number down.If you own a smartphone, this is a must have hunting App, a real no brainer because it's FREE and can save your life.
Statistically, nearly one out of every three hunters that hunt from an elevated stand will fall at some point during their span of hunting and treestand accidents are among the top reported accidents during hunting season.There are an estimated 13 Million climbing treestands in use today.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) nearly 75% of falls happen while the hunter is climbing the tree. The "SafeClimber" application has a 1 touch SOS button to enable an emergency text if you find yourself dangling from a tree. The App also has an automatic contact function (automated safety monitor) that will text two preselected contacts (one click from your contacts list for each for a total of two contacts for redundancy) and if you have a GPS signal, the phone can deliver your location by telling exactly where you are located if you you fall from the stand and are unconscious. Another important feature is that your phone will let you know that it has been triggered which gives you time to stop the emergency texts on a false alarm to keep the EMT's from coming.

Essential Tools For Hanging Treestands

by Justin Zarr 24. July 2011 16:23
Justin Zarr

Every year about this time I curse myself for not hanging more treestands during the spring. It seems like I always start out with good intentions, but once the weather breaks my mind wanders to other things and before you know it August is staring you in the face. So despite the heat and the bugs it's time to hang a few treestands before fall comes. So I grab my stand-hanging pack, some bug spray, a couple Lone Wolf stands and off I go.

Inside my stand-hanging pack there's a variety of tools and supplies that are essential to hanging stands quickly, effectively and most important safely. In no order of imporance here are the items I carry with me while hanging and trimming treestand locations.

  • Lineman's Belt
  • Hand Saw
  • Extentible Pole Saw
  • Hand Pruners
  • Screw-in tree steps
  • Gear hooks
  • Realtree E-Z Hangers
  • Bright Eyes reflective tacks
  • Bow ropes/Hoists
  • Treestand lock
  • Bug Spray

 


All of this gear has it's specific purpose that allows me to hang and trim my treestand locations more quickly and safely than ever before.

Let's start with the lineman's belt. This is probably the most important piece of gear to have as it not only makes hanging stands a LOT easier, it makes it a lot safer as well. I personally use the Treehopper belt, which I have retrofitted with a Lone Wolf linesman's belt. I prefer not to wear my full body harness that I wear while hunting primarily because I don't want to get it smelly with bug spray and sweat. The Treehopper is extremely easy to use and allows me to hang stands and sticks while having both hands free. If you're hanging stands without some kind of lineman's belt do yourself, and your family, a favor and get one before you hang another stand. Even if you don't ever slip, you'll thank me after seeing how much easier it is to hang a stand when you have both hands free.

After you get your stands up in the tree it's time to trim some shooting lanes. There's three tools I use for this - the hand saw, pole saw and hand pruners. With these three items you should be able to trim just about any shooting lane you could need. Since these tools are used quite a bit, and used hard, I make sure to use the best ones I can find. I've found the best combination to be the Wicked Tree Gear hand saw, Treehopper "Lane Maker" ratcheting pruners, and Hooyman 10 foot extentible pole saw.

The Wicked Tree Gear hand saw is a brand new product for this year, and so far it's performed extremely well. What sets this particular saw apart is the all-metal construction and extremely durable blade. There isn't a single plastic part on this saw which means it's extremely durable and won't break on you. The blade is sharp and tough, which means I can not only saw through large limbs but use it for the old "grip and rip", slashing down small twigs, vines, weeds, etc. This is a great product and if you're sick and tired of buying a new hand saw (or two) every year, I suggest you get a Wicked.


The Wicked Tree saw features a cast-aluminum handle and hardened steel hardware, which makes it extremely durable and a great option for hunters who are hard on their gear.

Hand pruners are another item I use a ton. After breaking several pairs of cheap plastic-handle pruners, and not being able to cut through large limbs with standard pruners, I discovered the Lane Maker from Treehopper. Like the Wicked hand saw, the Lane Maker is 100% metal which makes it extremely durable. Mine has made it through two hunting seasons along with constant use around my yard during the off-season, and it's still going strong. The ratching action allows you to cut through limbs up to 1" in diamater, which is very nice.


The ratcheting action of the Lane Maker pruners makes them great for cutting through larger limbs.

Anyone who has read my Blogs over the past several seasons knows how much I like my Hooyman Extendible Saw. The 10 foot version is perfect for reaching some of those out-of-range limbs, and it's packability is great for both pre-season and in-season lane trimming. It's not the greatest pole saw in the world as far as the durability of the blade goes, but the packability and versatility makes this saw certainly worth the purchase.


Here Bowhunting.com Pro Staff Blogger Scott Abbott uses his 10 foot Hooyman saw to trim shooting lanes during the summer.

With the stand hung and lanes trimmed before I leave I always make sure that it's properly "accessorized". That includes hanging a bow rope, screwing in several small gear hooks to hang my pack, rattling antlers, quiver, etc and a bow hanger. I personally like the Realtree E-Z Hanger, which seems to be a pretty popular choice with quite a few hunters. Unfortuatnely with some of the less-than-honest folks roaming the woods these days, I also lock my stands to the tree before leaving as well. Although it won't completely prevent stand theft, it will hopefully deter it.

On my way out of the woods I like to mark my stands with a few Bright Eyes reflective tacks. This allows me to better find the stand again when it's dark. This is very helpful those first few hunts of the year when you've haven't been to that stand in a couple of months. After all, nobody likes wandering around the woods in the dark, looking for their stand on opening day!

A couple other items I carry with me at all times are spare tree straps and a couple of screw-in tree steps. You never know when you'll need an extra strap or two to help get your sticks or stand around larger trees, or when you'll need that one extra step to get your stand in just the right spot.

So as you head out this summer to prepare your stand for fall, make sure you bring everything you'll need to get the job done right the first time. Making sure your stands are 100% ready to go before the season starts can not only increase your chances of success but make your hunt a lot more enjoyable as well.

Armchair Whitetail Scouting

by Steve Flores 21. March 2011 13:16
Steve Flores

Flying under the whitetail radar, while effectively locating your next trophy from the comfort of your own home, is actually easier than it sounds using these three steps.

Record Books
They may not have the glitz and glamour compared to other methods used to uncover whitetail hotspots, but don’t kid yourself regarding their value.  If properly utilized, record books are the next best thing to someone actually telling you where the whitetail hotspots are located.  You see, most individuals are reluctant to reveal their exact whereabouts when they experience any type of consistent success; especially when hunting on public land, and without a doubt if the animal is of Pope and Young caliber.  However, upon entering their trophy into the record books, they must at least divulge the general area of the harvest.  And that is where this entire process begins. 

Another good source of information is your local taxidermist. They are witness to a large variety of bucks and usually know the exact details of the kill. (i.e. harvest data: time, date, location)

Searching through the most recent edition of P&Y records will ultimately tell you (among other things), where the best bucks is being taken.  Finding a hotspot is as easy as calculating the total number of entries for any given county within the state you are researching.  Obviously, when you find a county that is consistently producing a high number of record class bucks, then that is where you will most likely want to concentrate your efforts.

Topo Maps
When using the lay of the land as a guide for stand placement, whether you’re in an entirely new spot or on very familiar hunting ground, the first thing you need to do is realize there are 2 types of terrain features….Positive and Negative.  Both will influence deer movement.  Your job is to utilize the clues found on your topo map to determine which types your area holds and how the deer are going to respond to them.  Then, act accordingly.

 

Don’t dismiss the amount of information contained in a topo map. Take your time and study one of your area before actually walking in on foot to further investigate.

When looking at your map, try to find negative terrain features that funnel deer movement into a pinch point.  For example, a small drain possessing steep side-hills that eventually turn into gradual slopes near the top is an excellent illustration of how negative terrain can funnel and influence deer movement.  Ideally, any deer moving through the area will most likely cross near the top, where the slope is not as radical.  An actual observation of the land should reveal heavy trails at the top which will coincide with the “widely spaced” contour lines from your topo map. For the most part deer are lazy and will often take the path of least resistance; as long as it provides them with the safety needed to get from point A to point B. Use this behavior to your advantage when thinking about possible stand locations.

Positive terrain features on the other hand will include, but not limit themselves to: ridge-top saddles, shallow creek crossings, overgrown logging roads, bench flats, and/or gradually sloping hollows.  In the past, I have set up in saddles discovered using only a topo map and long range observation, and struck pay-dirt my first time in the stand; mainly due to a bucks tendency to use a low lying saddle when crossing over a ridge in order to prevent sky-lining himself. 

Scouting Cameras
You should already have a good idea about where you are going to hang your camera based on the info (lay of the land) gathered from your maps.  Within that chosen area, consider setting up your camera near recently discovered “pinch points”.  Ideally, you’ll want to be set up in high traffic areas; somewhere near bedding/feeding locations or along the transition routes in between. However, if you are unfamiliar with the locale, it may take a little more investigating to discover such places.

 

Scouting cameras are your eyes when you are not there. Set them up in the right locations and they can pay off in a big way.

  Not only can game cameras reveal travel patterns of target bucks known to frequent your area, they can also provide evidence of NEW bucks that have moved in for any number of reasons. 

While conducting your search, look for heavily used trails leading to pinch points that choke deer movement into a confined area; increasing the likelihood that you will capture useful images.  Remember though, that the overall goal is to remain under the whitetails radar, so try to conduct your camera hanging/scouting before the season starts.  Also, do your best to get the camera location right the first time in order to avoid disturbing the area any more than what is absolutely necessary.  If you have thoroughly studied your maps, it shouldn’t be a problem.

Finding a good location to hang your treestand will be much easier having followed these three tips......

and the rewards will be well worth it!

Conclusion
Locating your next trophy without tipping your hand can be difficult to say the least.  However, with a little more homework, and a lot less footwork, you can accomplish far more than you thought possible.  Remember to utilize the information found in record books and harvest reports to get you headed in the right direction.  Then, obtain a topographic map of the area and study it as if your life depended on it. Lastly, go in and hang a scouting camera based on positive and negative terrain features and see if your hunch was right.  My bet is you will be going back very soon to hang a stand. Good luck and God Bless!

2011 ATA Show Day 2 - More Bowhunting Gear

by Justin Zarr 7. January 2011 06:08
Justin Zarr

Halfway through Day 2 of the 2011 ATA Show and I'm seeing a bunch of cool new bowhunting products that are coming out for this year.


The Bowhunting.com staff working hard updating blogs, videos, and articles from the hotel this morning.

Two companies are now producing treestands with cast aluminum platforms; Gorilla and Leverage (River's Edge).  For many years Lone Wolf held the patent on the cast aluminum platform but with that running out recently we're starting to see some of these new products hit the market.

Both stands are nice, but lack the refinement and adjustability of the Lone WOlf.  The Gorilla stands have no side to side adjustments or platform leveling, which is slightly disappointing.  The Leverage stand is very well made and the platform casting looks amazing.  The platform is only 3/4" thick and the entire stand weighs in at just 14 lbs, but also lacks the side to side adjustments that I'd like to see.  The seat leveling system also leaves some to be desired.  Both stands will retail around $199, but for that price I'd like to see some extra functionality added to them.


The new cast aluminum stand from Leverage.


Cast aluminum treestand from Gorilla.

New from Mountain Mike's reproductions is their turkey mounting kit called the Beard Collector.  This kit is very well made and looks great.  The plaque comes with a fan mount, an option for mounting the spurs, and hanging up to 5 beards.  The beards are mounted via a very simple and effective screw system with shotgun shell covers.  This is a killer new product for you turkey hunters looking for a classier way to display your trophies.

Trophy Taker has come out with a new line of field points that include a small o-ring for a secure fit.  These points screw in nice and tight and won't come loose after every shot.  I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about with how annoying it can be to re-tighten your field points every time you pull them out of the target.  A very simple, yet effective new product.

As usual the stars are out signing autographs at various booths around the show. 

And as promised, here's a better photo of the Tree Spider harness from Robinson Outdoors.  SO far this product has been the talk of the show.  Light, easy, fast, and safe.

I'm grabbing some lunch now and will update with another blog after the show ends tonight.

Tax on Treestands!

by Bow Staff 2. August 2010 17:05
Bow Staff

Big Brother is watching all hunters!

Minnesota hunter, Jeff Hardy, is your typical northwoods rifle hunter. On the 40 acres he hunts in this state’s Morrison County, he has one of those small mobile homes up in a tree he calls a ‘stand’. It’s about 8x16 feet, and complete with vinyl siding. Cause let’s face it, you have to protect your wood... right?

When Hardy first constructed this treetstand, he needed no permits because no planning and zoning ordinances were violated. That was then, welcome to the world according to the democrats Mr. Hardy. Enjoy!

The county tax office now wants him to pay taxes on his treestand! Claiming because it’s more elaborate than a typical treestand, they can do it too. It’s not a lot of dough, roughly about $40 per year.

When any county figures property taxes, it attempts to value items based on how they would sell in a fair marketplace. “The bottom line is whether they contribute value to the property”, Morrison county tax assessor Gale Zimmerman said.

"There isn't anything that says deer stands are exempt from being taxed," Zimmerman continued. "But they don't necessarily add value. I have seen a number of deer stands and they are usually just used for deer stands and they are really not suitable for anything else."

So let the readers here at Bowhunting.Com try and understand this one. The county assesses taxes based off how valuable they believe an item is, and yet the tax assessor so clearly states items don’t necessarily have to add value. So we’re all wondering why he’s being taxed then? In fact, we think the Morrison county tax assessor should likely credit Mr. Hardy. After all, someday he’ll have to sell that property and pay someone to cut the monstrosity down!

The staff here at Bowhunting.Com would like to extend a huge congratulations to the Morrison County Tax offices on making us all look better as employees. If our beloved owner knew we were wasting this much time over $40 a year he’d likely fire us all. We’re sure the taxpaying citizens who elect you are grateful in your attempts to collect these invaluable monies. Morrison County, Minnesota, tax officials, we salute you!

Bowhunter's Marry in Treestand!

by Bow Staff 1. July 2010 03:54
Bow Staff

The staff here at Bowhunting.Com can think of a lot of things to do while on stand waiting for Mister Big to stroll by. Among our most favorite are playing video games, practicing card tricks, and polishing our knife collections. The couple highlighted below however, may have just one-upped us all!

Meet 42 year old Kim Silver and, get this, 61 year old Marvin Hunter of Iowa. Yeah, that’s his real last name, we swear. While dressed in their finest camouflage and elevated in a tree stand they tied the knot this past June.

Kim’s camouflage fatigues were even made of silk, specially made by the good folks at Mossy Oak. Marvin sported your classic shirt and pants combo which appears to be of Realtree descent. Furthering the rift we believe might exist between Toxey Haas and Marvin.

Rumor has it that Kim and her new hubby even stalled the ceremony on several occasions to fling some shaft. Then we’re pretty sure they left on their honeymoon to exclusively fling some shaft.

Bowhunting.Com would like to send out a HUGE congratulation to the new couple! We hope you have many more seasons of bliss in both the home and woods to follow.

And you thought you were hardcore.

Custom Treestands!? Ambush Hunting Products releases the REVOLUTION!

by Bow Staff 13. April 2010 11:42
Bow Staff

Looks like that long afternoon in November just got a little more comfortable. Introducing the first ever treestand that can be pieced “custom” to your bodies needs, or even to your chosen trees features. Gone are the days of a “one size fits all” treestand. Read below to find out more! This is UNREAL!

Here is the “Revolution”, by the good folks at Ambush Hunting Products. This stand breaks down into 3 separate pieces! Choose your desired seat, and its height! Then choose your platform size!

In developing a new approach to the fixed treestand market, the Revolution is manufactured from high quality aluminum and splits up the stand into three parts. The treestand post is first attached to the tree with two straps. Then, the platform can be attached with a selection of various angles to match the level surface. Last, the seat can be inserted into the top of the post at the desired height. An angle adjust cube allows for a combination of angles for the seat to give the hunter the most comfortable position.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Ambush offers three different Revolution models, each with interchangeable parts. The available setups include two different 21"x25" platforms, a 30"x36" platform, three seat styles and the treestand post. This treestand concept allows for easy installation and security by removing only the platform at the end of the day.

So whether you hunt private or public land, keeping those neighbors honest just got a whole lot easier!

For more information and details on many more products, including the Revolution treestand, visit the website for Ambush Hunting Products or call 309 676-7930.

 

 

Swivelimb Products Review

by John Mueller 11. January 2009 04:14
John Mueller

One of the neater items I came across at the ATA Show was the Swivelimb Treestand and the related products at their booth. The treestand has actually been around for a while. I remember seeing them on Dave Embry’s hunting videos quite a few years ago. There have been some improvements made and they are hitting the market again. Their lineup has 2 stands, a multi-use winch, and a new screw-in step tool.

Their Swivelimb S1 is unlike any other stand on the market. It has the ability to adjust to almost any angle, making it one of the best stands for hanging on crooked or leaning trees. I have this stand on my list of things to buy this year. The M.S.R.P. is $199.99.

 
The Swivelimb S1 will fit almost any tree.

The seat and adjusting mechanism are made of sturdy DuPont ZyTel and the platform is made of steel.

This stand features include:
Multiple leveling positions
Silent swivel seat
Seat-to-tree distance is adjustable
9300 lb. Ratchet strap
19.5 in. wide platform
Weighs 19.75 lbs.
300 lb. capacity

They also sell just the seat by itself, called the Swivelimb S2.

 
The S2 would be great for hunting on the ground or duck hunting flooded timber.

This model can be used by itself for turkey hunting or duck hunting in a flooded woods by attaching it to a tree. You can use it with a platform as a tree stand or it can also be used as a free standing stool. The M.S.R.P. is $164.99

The seat features are:
1200 level mounting positions
Silent Swivel seat
Seat-to-tree distance is adjustable
Can be used as a pedestal on the ground
9300 lb. ratchet strap
Weighs 9.5 lbs.
300 lb. capacity

Another item at their booth I plan on purchasing is the Trewinch.

 
I can think of many uses for the Trewinch.

I can see many uses for this on my property, everything from hanging my deer for skinning, to lifting it on my 4 wheeler, hanging a feeder, to hanging food at camp, lifting tree stands in trees, or just helping to lift heavy objects. The M.S.R.P is $69.99.

The Trewinch features include:
9 ft. long 9300 lb. ratchet strap
Securely straps to almost anything
Silent operation
30 ft. of 500 lb. rope with carabiner

The last item from their booth is the StepBrother.

 
The Stepbrother could be a real handsaver.

This is a tool designed to make screw in tree step installation easier. It looks like a motorcycle throttle handle and is made from high tensile strength injection molded Zytel. You slip it over the tree step and as you screw the step in, the center spins so your glove doesn’t wrap around the step or your hand doesn’t get ripped to pieces. Simple but it really works. The M.S.R.P. is $9.99.

You can check out all of these products at http://swivelimb.com/. I am hoping to talk Todd into carrying these here on the site so check back for updates!

Treestand Safety

by Bow Staff 4. January 2009 10:24
Bow Staff

Treestand safety is something bowhunters don’t think about much unless they have a treestand accident. Almost all serious bowhunters know someone who has had a treestand accident. I know several individuals who have fallen from treestands. One gentleman I know had an accident in 2007. He is in his twenties and is now confined to a wheelchair.
