LF: Tree stand and/or Game Camera

Postby highlander » Mon Sep 04, 2017 1:00 pm

Getting into deer hunting for the first time. Long time waterfowl and turkey guy, into rabbits and pheasant too, but never big game.

I'm finding there are a few must haves that I'm hoping to pick up this week.. Ladder style tree stand, game camera, etc.

If there are any kicking around gathering dust, please PM or post here. I'd love to snag a deal as i'm not sure this will stick. I could also return after the season is done if there's someone out there just taking the year off.

:)

Good for you. So did you get a ladder stand? They are so much nicer than using tree pegs and a hang on stand.

Cheers

Yikes, 84 pounds. That is heavy for sure. You won't be carrying that too far at a time. I have an aluminum one which makes it pretty easy to handle. It can be erected and taken down in one piece which is nice. Methinks you'll have to do yours in two sections.
So what type of trail cam are you looking for? I have 3 black led models and they sure are nice. Nighttime videos aren't as good as the red led models but you absolutely can't tell when they are on so there is no spooking of game at all from a glow. Plus the reaction time and detection range on the newer models are amazing now.

Nope. Setup. Leave it there. Take down sometime (not sure when -- maybe in the spring or never).

Cheap trailcams just aren't worth your time in my opinion. They take crappy pictures and are slow to trigger. I have tried a bunch and regretted it.
However, there are low end but quality brand units available. My latest is a Spypoint Force 11 - it was 150+50 for the bearbox. I can recommend that unit, it works great, trigger is 0.3 second.

I totally agree Len. One of my favorite sayings is that you'll never regret buying quality, but most often regret buying junk.

Ian just keep an eye out for trail cam sales. It's about that time of year.
