Back in the years when the Baker tree stand was popular, a buddy made a copy. I borrowed it as we both headed out for the evening hunt. First time I had ever used one but I had no porblem getting up the tree about 15 feet. Once in place, I decided I wanted to face a little one way or the other so I hugged the tree, shifted the stand to the side and next thing I knew I was sliding down the tree as the stand didn't grab. ohmy.gif blink.gif sad.gif I hugged the tree and just as quick I let go as my hide seemed to be peeling off. Rode it all the way to the ground. Buddy told me later he had heard the noise and knew what had happened. Live and learn. biggrin.gif

Just hit me upside the head with a 2x4, that MIGHT get my mind off of elk hunting.
