How many of you

Post  Mountainman Vic on Mon Sep 22, 2014 6:40 pm

Hang a treestand to practice from before season? I put one up in the back yard for Holly to practice and I'm glad I did. It's been a year since she was in one and it is a little unnerving for her. Even for me I can tell that it is completely different from shooting with your feet on the ground and something that I should do more of.

lol. The porch roof is a lot more foot room than a little API hang on swaying in the breeze. Of course I think I know of a porch roof just east of Quincy Illinois that would make one heck of a treestand.

I shoot off the roof sometimes also, but most of the time off the deck.

I just shoot off the deck.  Honestly, I should do more shooting from the ground so that if I'm in a ground blind I can still hit something.

I don't here at the house, just the ground. I use to, I would put up a ladder stand and shoot from it.  Then I had that demon maple tree from hell removed from the back yard. Now the only trees I have are ornamental pear trees.  I do have a 15 ft platform we shoot from at the house in Kansas.

My deck is pretty high and I shoot downslope which it's the target about the same height as most of my stands except a few really high ones!  3fawns and a doe out about 25 yds right now!
