How Should Your Firearms and Other Equipment Be Powered Into a Treestand?

Knowing how to load a firearm safely, how to use it while in the field, and what to do in the case of an accident are all part of being a safe hunter. Whether you’re using a shoulder holster or a standing straight-stitch vented weapon, it’s always good to know how a gun should be unloaded or brought into a treestand. This way you won’t ruin anything or cause harm to anyone who comes into contact with your firearm. Here are some tips for safely carrying your weapon and keeping it in a safe place during long trips.

How should your firearms and other equipment to be brought into a treestand? Many experienced hunters carry their firearms in a nylon sling instead of a traditional weapon caddy. The nylon sling is very easy to transport, not too bulky, and can easily fit in the trunk of a car or even in the bed of a work truck. For long trips the nylon sling would be our first choice, as it’s the safest, most comfortable carrying option, and it allows hunters to easily adjust their comfort level to various game animals. Nylon slings can also be collapsed into a small case for extra protection against the wind or stored under a blanket for when the air temperature drops.

Most experienced hunters prefer a non-magnetic belt holster instead of a traditional shoulder holster. A non-magnetic belt holster will keep your firearm up high and away from the ground, which is a must when hunting for large game animals. Most long trips require hunters to walk a long distance away from their cars and to take their guns with them to avoid discharges when they come in contact with rocks or other hard surfaces.

If you are going to be on a long trip in the woods with your rifle and ammunition, you’ll want to put the weapon on your back, preferably attached to the buttstock. For many of us this isn’t possible, but if you are good with your hands and are comfortable with handling your firearm while seated, you can always sit down and get into a prone position. This is the best place for a bullet to miss the target. You should always sit as far away from the tree line as possible and have the buttstock slightly pulled back. This will help you stay as relaxed as possible while taking your shot.

If you are shooting a large game animal like a deer or a large turkey, it is important that you keep the weapon pointed in the general direction of your target. If you’re hunting with a bow, try to stay as close to your target as possible, while still being able to fire accurately. Many hunters like to practice their skills by firing from a prone position and then taking a shot at their prey from a sitting position. Remember though, that this is a skill that must be developed. Remember that a hunter who has never shot a gun before, is not a safe hunter.
