Many hardcore bowhunters, especially in states with high-pressure areas, are constantly looking for the most efficient and lightweight climbing option. Long walks carrying a backpack, bow, a stand, and sticks can make for a sweaty and uncomfortable sit. Fortunately, many companies have stepped to the plate and introduced a lightweight option for these on the fly hunters.

There are really only two options for on the fly climbing systems: Climbing Treestands or a Hang on and Sticks



Climbing Sticks and Hang on Stands

When it comes down to it, this decision is all preference. Pick a lightweight stand and a lightweight set of sticks that pack together easily and hit the woods. Here are some of the most popular and lightweight climbing sticks available. Be sure to test each stand and climbing system before purchase to ensure comfort and safety!
