  I've tried a number of climbers over the yrs but always spent more time looking for a tree to get up than looking for deer.  Last one was a Summit that was made just for Cabela's. Nice.

I have felt like that in a few of the trees I have shimmied up.

BING BING BING we have a WINNNER!!! Bucky.
 
I'd feel safe in that nest.  It's the realatively small branchless strait truck tree you need for a climber that makes me nervous.

I don't know about that.  I'm 6'3" and 240+ lbs.   My Grand Ol Man works pretty good.  Easy on and off the tree and climbs pretty quiet too.  However, if it is cold (20's or lower) you'll want a cushion between you and the mesh seat.  Otherwise your clothes lose their insulating properties and you literally freeze your a$$ off.

  Which climber belt you using?  I've still got my old API.  My Klien is just too stiff for bowhunting.

have no clue, its the old leather one that my dad used back when he was a lineman.  His hooks too,  I just changed the spikes and leather a while back due to dry rot.

  I just did a search for dedicated bowhunting climbing belts.  Nothing.  I'm guessing they're not considered safe anymore.
  I can see your leather belt getting supple but my Klien is cordora and is unbelievably stiff even after yrs of use at work.

And I was about to get all excited about pole climbing.  Bucky
 
 
My neighbor works for BGE and is a lineman.  He goes up those poles like a freakin monkey!!!
 
Thats a job were you usually only get one mistake!!!
 
The ones that really scare me are the nuts that walk the plank out of a perfectly good helo and climb onto hi tension transmission lines!!!!

My dad had a hook break early in his career as a lineman while about halfway down a pole, them old crisco poles leave lots of splinters in arms and thighs if you try to hold on while falling, I think they quit counting at 500 splinters removed at the ER.

  I've got a friend who does the helo job,Bud.  GOOD money!
 
  Creosote in the body sucks.
 
  Only ever had my spikes kick out one time and that was in a Shagbark Hickory.  Fell only 5'.  I did spike myself bad though when my back came out while descending a tree.

OH Damn!!!  Makes me cringe just thinking about it!  Especially teh older poles that have been climbed alot.  While they would definitely slow a fall all I can think is Cheese Grader!!!!  and when your talking bear hugging the pole..its chest arms thighs and possibly face....
 
Your dad must have some pretty nasty scares!!!!  Cringing again!!!
