Cutting shooting lanes... The Essential tools.

Here is one thing I  have learned....  There is an easy way and a hard way to cut in stand locations.  Over the years through trial and error I have found the essential tools of the trade to get the job done as fast and easy as possible with leaving minimal disturbance to the area.  Sure using a chainsaw you could knock out some lanes fast.... But at what cost to the setup?

Starting with a simple folding hand saw.  I have one of these on me at all times while hunting.

A nice set of loppers are fantastic at taking down trees up to 2-3 inches in diameter.

The Hooyman 5 and 10 foot saws are outstanding pieces of equipment that I believe are a must for any mobile hunter.

Finally for those branches way up there a 14 foot pole saw.

By using these tools there won't be a setup that you can not effectively trim out with minimal effort.  By owning these tools for properly trimming out areas to hunt a hunter is more likely to cut out extra setups each year to expand their hunting opportunities.
