    I really didn't get scared. Just focused on being safe and doing what I had to do.

    Glad your okay Virginia, that is scary stuff!!

    Congrats to those following (and not) that got it done today.

    Thanks all for following along with me. I'm worn out - will hunt in the morning and go back and look for him for a few hours. He got to the top of a ridge (steep hill) found blood couldn't tell if he went left, right or down the other side. It was a tough track through a lot of different terrain. I really enjoyed reading your comments it kept us pushing! Thanks

    I had this happen to me back in 2002, when I bought my first LW sit and climb, which didn't come with connecting straps. I didn't know any better at the time, so I hunted without them.

    As I looked down after the platform slipped down about 6ft, I had to figure a way to get it back up to me, as I had nobody around. I took my pull rope and a couple of those screw hooks and tied them together like a grappling hook. I lowered it down until I hooked the platform securely, and pulled that bad boy right back up to me! I couldn't believe how well it worked. lol Lesson learned. After that I installed connecting straps.

    I ended up seeing 47 deer and 26 turkeys tonight. Nothing was close, but it was good to see where all the deer were coming from.
