Which of the following is one of the advantages of using a treestand?
Treestands give a hunter a longer range of visibility, allowing for more time to prepare for a safe shot. Game animals can detect even slight movements, but in a treestand a hunter can move without being easily detected.

When hunting in a tree stand you should always?
Before climbing into an elevated stand, always completely unload your firearm. In tree stands, it is imperative to always use a Treestand Manufactures Association (TMA) approved Fall Arrest System when getting into or out of a stand, and while hunting, to prevent falls.
What are the four R’s of an ethical hunter?
The Four R’s of Ethical Hunters 1. Respect for Self Learn everything you can about the game you are hunting. Know and respect the legal seasons of the game animals being hunted. Practice marksmanship long before the hunting season to ensure a clean, swift harvest of game animals.
What should you wear when using a treestand?
The best safety precaution for treestand hunting is to wear a full-body harness and stay tethered to the tree or lifeline the entire time you‘re off the ground. A full-body harness secures the bowhunter to the tree or lifeline with a tether, which is located on the harness’s back, just below the neck.
Why is proper clothing important to hunters?
Choose clothing that keeps you dry and warm, yet lets your skin breathe and helps control scent. The proper hunting attire also protects you from potential harm. Make sure you understand the safety requirements for the area in which you’ll be hunting.

What is the purpose of the tether strap?
The Top Tether Strap, also sometimes called an ‘anchor strap‘, is the webbing strap attached to the top back of a child restraint. The strap has a metal hook on the end, which should be used to secure the upper part of your child restraint to the approved vehicle anchor point.
What is still hunting strategy?
As the name implies, still hunting is walking stealthily through an animal’s habitat, stopping frequently—sometimes for long periods—to scan and listen for game. Typically, big-game hunters use this method in unfamiliar terrain or where stands are impractical or forbidden.
Do Ground blinds contain scent?
Scent. As with all the other examples listed above, ground blinds can actually help you contain and minimize the impact of your human odor – but only when used properly. Most importantly, you must remember that no ground blind is 100% scent-proof, so always practice comprehensive scent control.
What is a reason to plan prepare for a hunting trip?
A hunting plan tells where and with whom you are hunting and when you expect to return. It also should contain specific directions on your route to your destination and any alternate destination you may have if bad weather changes your plans.
Do you aim high or low when shooting from a tree stand?
When bowhunting from a treestand that’s roughly 20 feet high and shooting at deer 15 yards or more away, bowhunters might need to aim slightly lower than they would when shooting from ground level. Or they might aim for the same spot where they normally shoot, depending on the drop and distance.
Is 12 feet high enough for a tree stand?
Most bowhunters hang treestands 17 to 20 feet up the tree. However, that’s a general rule, and doesn’t apply to every situation. The less cover you find, the higher you should hang your treestand, within reason. Do not go higher than 25 feet.
What is the hunter’s most important item of clothing?
The most important clothing choices are a daylight fluorescent orange hat and daylight fluorescent orange outerwear—a shirt, vest, or jacket. Daylight fluorescent orange clothing makes it easier for one hunter to spot and recognize another hunter because nothing in nature matches this color.
