Tree Stands on Public Land
I'm going to be hunting on public land here in Florida in the next few weeks. I have a hang on tree stand and a stick ladder. Last year was the first time I ever hunted deer. I didn't get one, and carrying the ladder, tree stand, and rifle through the thick Florida brush were a huge pain in the ass. It really discouraged me from getting out there more than I did. My question is should I leave the stick ladder out there and just hope for the best? It only cost about 50 dollars, but I'd hate to head out for a morning of hunting only to find I have no way of getting up the tree I was planning on hunting from. Eventually I'd like to buy a climber, but I'm not sure I want to spend the money right now.
