Hurricane Safety Systems ladders

Thread starter #1

I'm thinking on getting some of these. I've been contemplating getting rid of my last lock-on due to fact that I'm not a spring chicken anymore (66) and hanging them is a real chore to me especially since the only one I have left is made of steel and heavy. This ladder system is set like a conventional ladder and appears to be rock solid and since you're weight foreward as opposed to hanging on with your weight working against you. I know they are more expensive than traditional sticks and heavier too but if it makes the hanging process easier I may spring for one. Last year I was hanging my stand by myself in August and it about drained me. Anyone got any experienc with these ladders?

Did you notice that none of the guys on that website use any kind of safety system? No harness or lineman's rope. I figured this would be a big no no in today's climate of staying safe.

I like them. You got me interested now in a couple of items Hurricane has to offer. Anything that makes you more willing to get into a stand is a good thing to me.
I like them..I have 2 and they are rock solid. Easy to set up they are just heavy. I have mine set now just on permanent sets. They are not made for run and gun type deals. They are worth the money in my opinion. I still use a linemans rope and harness while hanging stands but the way that the ladder angles towards the tree the higher you get is very comfortable while hanging

I dont like the climbing sticks either. Something we have done is buy a very inexpensive ladder stand......and erect it in the tree you want your lock on to be in. Simply clim up the ladder and hang your lock on (with safety harness) . you have both hands free and feel safer on a platform than hanging off a tree.

Some may argue....why not just hunt from the ladder....the lockons we use are much more comfortable and easier to hunt out of, so we just use the ladder as a glorified climbing stick

May not work for all, but we have found it effective.
