Before you judge me for asking about an easier way to get a stand in the tree, remember, I am women. I am trying to find the easiest and safest way for me to be self sufficient this year. My brother, dad, or boyfriend have always had to help me get a stand up in the morning and down in the evening being I can't physically get my stand up by myself. The other day I looked into these tree stand pulley systems you can buy. Any one gave experiences with these? Is there one that is easier to use than another? Seems to me with the use of one of these pulley systems, I should be able to get a stand up when I hunt by myself.
