Description

Bowhunters know the value of hunting white-tailed deer from treestands. Twenty or twenty-five feet up a tree, belted into a stable platform attached to a sturdy maple or oak, with your silhouette broken up by a nearby hemlock, you're well concealed from wary deer that often look up as they walk through the woods. Trophy deer in particular know the score come hunting season -- they know that hunters don't just stalk through the woods, or put on a drive, they also take to the trees. How to take to the trees in a manner that won't alarm deer, that will put you in position for a killing shot -- this is what "Treestand Hunting Strategies" is all about.Written by an expert in the field, this complete guidebook tells you how to select a stand -- a ladder stand, climber, lock-on, homemade -- for the hunting situation at hand. Author Gary Clancy then takes you afield, examining each situation, then helping you decide exactly where to put your treestand -- what types of trees are best, how close to major trails you should set up, how to read the wind currents and plan your stand accordingly, and much more. Tips on how to remain quiet in your treestand are also covered, as are tips on staying comfortable for long hours in the trees. Camouflage clothing and coverings, accessories for your stand such as ladders, screw-in steps, bow holders, rifle rests, and locking devices, and safety considerations are all covered.More and more hunters are hunting from trees, as the method's effectiveness is proven more and more with each passing season. There has never been a book written entirely on this subject before; this will be the guidebook against which all other books in the future will be measured.It is a must-have not only for all serious whitetail hunters, but all big-game hunters period.
