So a buddy of mine has told me several times that if I plan on hunting on a Saturday morning, to go out to my spot Friday evening and set my climbing tree-stand on the tree I have scouted. That way it is much much easier to move to your spot without hauling a big climber on your back. He does this mostly in Thistlewaite area and sometime Shurburn. I myself would be weary about it due to someone without an honest bone to steel the climber...anyone else do this ? is this a common practice for people hunting public land? what you yall think the odds of a shady hunter coming along and stealing your climber ?
