    My next climber will be a Lone Wolf if I can swing it. I've heard too many positive comments to not try one out.

    I'm on my 11th year with my Summit Viper and I have never not been comfortable in the stand nor worried about safety. It totally locks to EVERY tree I've ever put it in and I've put in 100's!

    I have a couple friends with the Lone Wolfs and they love them as well.

    Woodie - You won't regret it. Out of everyone that we hunt with in the last 18 years, nobody has bought a second climber except my dad. He wanted the sit and climb because its more comfortable. Doesn't even sit and climb with it. He will get to see how that stand works down in SC since he moved down there in February!

    Hopefully he's enjoying himself down here.

    As long as he doesn't try to climb the pine trees, or is real careful if he does, he shouldn't have any problems. And the only real issue with the pine trees is the loose bark chunks that can cause slips.

    I also climb the pines fairly often, but I've learned to keep my stand at a slightly steeper angle to set the teeth in the large bark chunks. Same thing goes for the water oaks up here with the smoother bark.
