My son-in-law came out to hunt this morning and before leaving offered to put up my stand. Being no spring chicken I quickly accepted. I showed him the tree I had in mind and said wind would be predominantly from southwest. I then returned to house to get the bow hanger I had forgotten. Upon my return he had the climbing ladder up which is composed of sections that hang by a single strap but do not plug together. I like them they are aluminum and easily put up. However he was very upset about my blankety blank climbing sticks. Well he had the stand on the correct side of the tree, so I did not say anything other than I wish I had good stuff like you. He said I should climb up and check it out he was afraid of it. As soon as I stepped around to the side he put the steps on I could see the tree had a lean and the steps where on the underside of the tree. Climbing up you had to try to wrap your toes around the rungs to keep from swinging out into space, not easy with boots on. So what do you think he is polish or is he just trying to hasten his inheritance?
