    I'm scared of heights as well, but have found a harness to be the best invention ever. I absolutely love my full body harness. Its just the cheap one that came with the ladder stand, but I set it up so I can stand on the platform, and lean into it and it holds me upright. I've never felt more comfortable in a tree then with that system. And thats with out a safety bar, just standing there in the open. Completely changed how I feel about heights in a treestand. just a thought. and congrats on the deer hawg

    Ford, glad to see you liking the harness. Never leave the ground without it.

    Hawg, shoot 'em up. You can have my share.

    Oh, I can't impersonate a tree, but I can impersonate a stump. Just sit down somehwere and go to sleep. The woods are that comfy for me. LOL.

    Well Barry, I like the stump idea. But not hawg's idea, impersonating a tree. The coyotes pee on you. LOL!

    I tried sitting down and shooting legs flat. I just can't do it with any consistency. Knees yes, standing yes, legs out in front, no joy. I might have to work on that.

    I agree it is hard. Practice up and you'll hit well. A small tree in the small of your back will help. Small enough to let you pull back without hitting it. Also you will not be shooting with your body straight.

    i cant do that anymore. not as flexible as i once was. so i stand(since i have no 'yotes to worry about,lol) w my eyes peeled and when i see deer i slowly drop tp my knees. i forgot to post the pics. to obcessed w huntin. so here they are. in the pic w 2 holes,the one on the right is the 1st hole that went into her spine. entered just behind her shoulder blade. the hole on the left was the finisher(BTW,i found my arrow the next morning 17yds behind the deer! i was shocked). pic of single hole is the exit of the finisher and,finally, a pic of the Slick Trick burried in her spine up to the insert. broadhead was recovered when the deer was processed. no bent blades,blades still sharp enough to cut my finger(broke out the peroxide and rubbing alcohol),still spins true and is back in service awaiting its next kill.

    Well Hawg, I kidded with you a lot on impersonating a tree, but its true when my daughter and I were out Thanksgiving and I shot that doe she looked at me and I stood there like a tree. That is the only reason I got another shot off. Its just too bad I couldn't bring her home. Complete pass thru and no deer bummer.
