  • Any ideas on how I could get my Dad to hunt my best stand?

    I have a stand I've taken my best bucks on public land and see good bucks year after year. Dad had brain surgery 3 years ago and I can't get him in that stand because he calls it my "honey hole" but I would love to see him put a Broadheads in a good buck. He has always been my #1 hunting buddy and always excited to see my success. Would love to give back him!

      Try to explain to him how much it would mean to you for him to hunt there. Make sure it's clear that he'd be doing you a favor, so to speak.

        Blindfold him and drive him there against his will? Joking of course...you mention favorite hunting partner. What about a double seated climbing stand? Could ease him into it by hunting together.

          I have two sons and they are my to favorite hunting and fishing companions ! When you are a dad , you teach and give your children there introduction to the sport. As they learn and become successful it becomes more important to you and you feel more pride in their accomplishments than you do your own. For years you focus on giving your kids the chance to hunt and fish , worry about safety and teaching them the right way. So in a way you evolve into a different type of person. Two things here , your dad knows your giving back to him and being a true sportsman ! Unselfish and caring and he is very proud of you. He also is still your dad and he will probably will never except the offer because he has pride and with the brain surgery he has to prove to all he is still dad! You can keep trying but don't push to hard. Just your offer is proof enough he raised a great young man! Believe me it's a greater feeling than any buck will ever give him!

                Tell him you have found a much better 'Super stand' and he can use your old one.

                  Tell him you would like to see his mount right next to yours.

                    Don't take no for an answer. Explain to him how much it would mean to you have him get a nice one out your stand. And like it was said before having two hanging from the wall next to each other with a heck of a story to tell is not something many people have. You're lucky my old man expects my best stand and expects me to hand him a deer. But he not around for the work or handing out the cash that it cost for food plots and feeders and corn. Take him early in the dark and just drop him off.

                      Offer it up truthfully, and then let him hunt where he wants. You can lead a horse to water buy you can't make it drink.
