Great October evening, buck down in Ohio!

by Scott Abbott 18. October 2009 15:06

Setting up a lockon treestand, climbing sticks and trimming shooting lanes.

by Scott Abbott 5. August 2009 08:25
Scott Abbott Every now and then you come across a spot that just tells you to put a lock on up rather than pack in your stand for the hunt.  This spot only tells me that once every 3 years though because of the crop rotation on the fields.  It is a long walk from my parking area and right o...

Scott Abbott After arriving home with the new stand, the very first thing I did after opening the box was weigh the stand to see if their advertised weight matched my scale.
