Stand and pack

Post by Arki on Mon Apr 02, 2012 10:07 pm

How are do you carry your stand and pack into and out of the woods? I have been simply putting my stand over my pack but looking for something new. Right now im thinking a waist pack with shoulder straps and hopefully it will ride beneath the stand.

I usually put my pack on my stand. I got a web this year so now I don't know what I'm going to do. I've got plenty of time to figure it out though.

I typically have a waist pack and just turn it to where it's in front of me when I'm packing in with a stand on my back. This has worked for me for years.

I use a medium Alice pack & just put my Loc-limit on top of my pack. If I need to carry extra clothes I just strap them to my stand. Using this method everything stays pretty close to my back, & the stand over the pack makes for quiet packing.

Thanks Dave. Im not sure why but Im a little hesitant of the web. I'v been looking at the LW and sticks for the stand and maybe a pack something along the lines of this one. I like the shoulder straps of the ALPS Pathfinder but it may be a little large for what I need.

Cbigbears solution may be the ticket for you. I have used the external frame from an alice pack to strap my stand and then bag to. It is very comfortable and I have carried upwards of 100 lbs this way, not that you will be, but it has the capacity.

I had my doubts about the web at first, but after a lot of research I decide I'm going to order one. I sold both my Summit climbers last week & will be ordering a web soon. The web will be my all day stand & the Limit will be my run & gun stand. The only drawback I see to the web is you may have to be careful with tree selection.

LW makes top notch stuff. I have the sticks, but the stands are just a little too heavy for my liking.

I went with the Alice pack for three reasons price, comfort, & durability. I got the pack for $12 including shipping.

I will rarely walk over a mile so the added weight of a stand isn't too bad. Hunting rivers out of a boat really helps to get away from the pressure. One of my concerns with the web is being caught faceing the wrong way, just seems like more chance for noise with contact to the tree. Many of the places I hunt are very thick and deer will often pop out of no where.

Getting the angle to the tree right is important and if you are making quick shots, learning how to shoot like Dave did with the tennis balls in his vid may be the best bet. You could give Butch a call at Guido's Outdoors and he can talk you through possibilities. He also hunts Mississippi which is thick like yur sayin.

I hope I can explain this right. If you take a short strap ( I have a 2 footer) and attach it to the left side carabiner of the web then through the carabiner on the tree then through the carabiner on the right side of the web you can almost spin completely around in the web. They call this a bridge. I'll take a picture when I get a chance to show you what I mean. Hope this helps.
