Think about all the hunting stuff you can't get anymore...fiberglass (microflight) shafts, 5/16 treestand knobs, stajak arrow holders...

You can still buy similar to Sta-Jak, just not the same name. The Grayling arrow holder.

The Bear Claw Tree Steps.

From: Jon Stewart

All the box stores and trailer parts sales places have the 5/16 tree stand nobs. They are used on the trailer awning arms. I can't find the Saunders Plastic tabs. I was recently gifted on from someone on here but would like to find a spare.

Don’t need any of that stuff No market for it or it would be made

The biggest heartbreak in my life and my brothers' life...AFFORDABLE hunting land, 200 acres with a cabin as a family hunting camp.

Remember when all the men in a family took off work for opening week and everyone went to their respected family deer camps. All you need now is a half million dollars...

Jon Stewart - message me with your address. I have a Saunders tab and you’re welcome to if.

Wouldn’t mind seeing $29 Aluminums agian or maybe year end sales when Easton brought out new camo patterns for shafts.

The opportunity to go to your local archery shop and get what you need instead of always having to order it online. All Archery related shops around me look more like a gun shop.

The ability to hunt out of state without needing an attorney to read the regs and a banker to loan the money.

Baker Tree Climbers

Access to private hunting ground. Thousands of acres I used to hunt on are now posted. Really sad.

From: loose arrow

George, tried the Stay-Jak, but prefer the Grayling a whole lot more, because it is a lot easier to attach to the arrow shaft.

From: longbow1968

Definitely hunting land prices here in Georgia. I earn more than I did in the 90’s, but still not enough after everything else is added up to pay crazy club prices here.

From: kaw369

I still have my baker tree stand! It has given me many a rides in the past. I was young then and indifferent. LOL

Those who havn't used a Baker climbing stand don't know what their missing.

I remember buying cedar shafts for 25 cents each or $2.50 a dozen from Herters catalog. Can't do that anymore.

From: GLF
Date: 23-Sep-21

I payed 35 bucks per hundred for acme premium shafts matched to 10lbs spine and 45 buck matched to 5 lbs. I used to go looking for small town shops for deals. They sometimes had outdated prices on old stuff that didn't sell. Bought a 72 super k in a blister wrap new for 69 bucks in 83. And stocked up on Ace 160s for 8 bucks a pack in the 80s and restocked for 15 a pack in early 2000s.

Good knees. I have used and made Bakers.

I remember $6.95/dozen zwickey's and a free Judo with every dozen.

Miss my Northstarr Arrowstarr treestand. Levels while you climb. Base was lighter than the lone wolf snd it was INFINITELY adjustable to tree trunks. Used yhe lone wolf top with it, and the combo weighed about 10.5 lbs.

After I got rid of my two Baker Treestands back in the 1970s I bought a Fox Squirrel climbing treestand around 1979/1980. It was better than the Bakers. I have never seen another Fox Squirrel climbing treestand again or even an advertisement for one in over 41 years. Here is a picture of a Fox Squirrel Climbing Treestand.

Nemo, I used a fox stand in 1990 when I killed this Bear in Quebec.

Loggy Bayou climbing treestands, nice light to carry portable treestands. Wish I could still get them or parts.

ahunter76, You are the first person I've ever heard of that used the Fox Squirrel climbing treestand besides me.

Live2Hunt, I still have my Loggy Bayou, I also have a Lone Wolf climber and two Summit climbers.

We have no trees left, the northerners are buying and clearing the land faster than my arrow can pass over it.

It doesn't matter I never used a tree to hunt anyway.

Even the everglades is quickly becoming the not so everglades.

Florida is not Florida anymore, it's the worlds largest retiree village.

I am glad I was here in the early days when there were no one for miles, water and alligators lined the edges on the roads, panthers would visit your back yard, and the only snakes we had to worry about were moccasins and rattlers, there were only two roads in and out of Florida, there were no four lane roads or interstates, the bridges were wooden. Game flourished, that will never be seen again. There still is millions of acres, but it all belongs to the DUDA Ranch conglomerate and you can't hunt on it.

There you go olddogrib don't shoot to high. Ha!Ha!

Can’t find My arrow making tools but that’s just me ( I’ll just set that there for now) my biggest mistake is I loaned out some good books in the past I never got back ~ Fatzke Camo ~ many different kinds of tree stands n climbing systems, good deer hunting land is hard to come by for sure

From: LDB

I found one thing. Damon Howatt Hunter 54 pounds at a garage sale. $15, finish was a little checked. Sanded it down and refinished with a satin finish. Looks like new, don't know what I will ever do with it, but there it is.

This aluminum swag arrow cleaner is the bomb. I dont think they are made any more. Couple turns on the arrow and the nock grips so good almost dont need glue. I unscrewed it to show the 3 rods inside.

Damn RonG, was that before smokeless powder? And Black Beard was the only offshore problem. :)

A drainage in Colorado that has Moore Elk then hunters in it. Damn you outdoor channel.

From: Harleywriter
Date: 26-Sep-21

Found a package of 160-grain Grizzlies (6 of em) that I paid $20 for sometime in late 90s or early 2000s. Also have several hundred cedar shafts that cost me less than $1 a piece and 100 ash shafts from silent Pond bought maybe 30 years ago. Do t know what I paid for them but the receipts will float to the top here in bit. Yeah, it’s a sickness - kinda like rock n roll but I like it.

Yep miss those new camo patterns for those old aluminum arrows. TSS climbing stand !

From: Seahorse

Prairie Ghost camo clothing. Everything today is made for dark eastern forests. In the west you just look like a giant black blob in that stuff. Nothing today comes close to matching the subtle light shades of the sagebrush country.

Northern Wi. and upper Mich. before it was over run with wolves.
