For tree climbers what kind of modification would like to do or have done when Xbow hunting.

I'm using these rubber coated twisty ties to hold my fanny pack on my Ol Man arm rest. Also, it's one less hook I have to use to screw into the tree. As a result I move less having my fanny pack open for quick access to my accessories like, thermos, windicator while sitting in the stand. It may seem minor but it really helps me to have easy access to things while sitting in my tree climber.

I've been doing a lot with the rubber coated wires too Tom. I do have a front rail bag on my climbers and always add a quiver receiver to the right side rail. The Third Hand Archery stabilizer straps and rubber tread strips are good adds.

I added a home made bow holder...

Gun Trigger Machine gun Soldier Airsoft gun


I also ordered another quiver mount that matches my quiver and screwed in on the outside of the right hand rail on my stand. Arrows out of the way and within easy reach. I bought AND USE the thirdhand straps. These make your stand where it wont move even an inch. I use a fanny pack to carry my stuff and it just clips onto the front rail of my stand once I'm seated. I just wrap the fanny pack straps enough times to hold the pack still so I can unzip it and leave it open. I don't use any hooks in the tree. Don't want any sap running down the tree trunk.

I added a front bag and two side bags to my Summit Viper. Nice to have everything I need without having a backpack hang on one side.

The front and side bags are listed under the Options drop down.

Added two straps one on each side of the stand securing the top and bottom sections together. Don't want to loose the bottom section while climbing!!

Added the curtain around the stand. Really comes in handy when it is windy!! I like being able to move my legs around unseen as well. Some have said it spooks the deer. I haven't had that problem. Curtain or no curtain if they look up they will see you. Be still and they will go back to what they were doing. At least that has been my experience. Have killed several deer with the curtain on.

I leave my stand out with them on it with no problems so far.

If you don’t have a footrest be sure to get one!! Comes in very handy with long sits.

I made a front bag and two side bags and use a Thirdhand Bow Holder, I also have blinds for my stands that have pockets on the inside. I use these stands once the leaves come off to reduce movement. I also have Thirdhand Stabilizer straps on all of my climbers.
