I hunt on private land is a long walk from a dead end dirt road but borders my property. I have 2 - 16' sections of aluminum ladder I was thinking of using for tree stand access. Plan is to paint the flat camo. Could be attached to the tree at or near the top and to a stake at the bottom rung. Would put it out in late August, a full month before the Oct 1 opening of bow season. Has this ever been tried? To what success? Or is it a crazy idea that isn't worth pursuing? Looking at the ease of going up the ladder vs. climbing sticks.
