Like I said though... tracking is awesome, takes a degree of skill and the hunter in that case has earned what they kill.

Not sure where you hunt, but trying to track animals, especially deer, in flat country is prettty futile. They'll hear you long before you see them. In hilly terrain or mountains it's an entirely different story. Also, if you are tramping around in the woods during deer season you have a 90% chance of walking right past another hunter in the a tree that can easily mistake you for a deer.

I've done both and can say it's a lot harder to sit still in a tree for 4 hours not making a sound and freezing your butt off than it is to go hiking through the mountains looking for game, but if you live in flat land and want some venison that's pretty much what you got to do.

As for the original post, I'd go with a real tree harness rather than use a rock climber. Go on craigslist and get a used one.
