I purchased my first two tree stands this year, one climber and one ladder stand. It was rather interesting the first time practicing with the climber......Tree stands aren`t the norm around here (Washington) although they seem to be becoming more popular. I`m looking for some advice from experienced tree stand folks. How do you clear your shooting lanes of the brush that is too high up to reach from the ground? Do you carry a hand operated telescoping pole saw in with you? It`s a thick jungle in this rain forest.
