    Really, it is a red light that blinks, or stays on continuous, as opposed to a high intensity strobe. Plenty bright, and the remote turns in on when you get into the area. I have one that you turn on and leave in the evening, and it stays on and gets you back in the morning. I've also used that one for three nights in a row, with now apparent loss in brightness.
    You still need a marked trail to get you in fast and quiet, but the marker light is a great asset.

    I like my GPS but for the most part I come in under pink light and have no trouble finding my stands

    I use the reflective tacks some times if i'm hunting a new area and at the end i'll stick 2 in the tree that i hang my stand in....But for the most part i've hunted mark twain forests where i live for the past 35yrs and pretty much know it like the back of my hand.Even though most won't make the walk that i make through the woods i seldom leave my climbers.I don't trust people nowadays.

    I don't know how but I just tend to remember where it is. I look at the tree line and remember the layout and location. Works for me any how.

    We've had trouble with theft too. I still use the reflective twisty-ties, but sparingly. A bud showed me to lay dead wood off to the side going in the direction of travel, if there's no snow, they stand out pretty good with minimal light, even decent moonlight. Pretty inconspicuos if your not looking for it.

    hehe thats been me on quite a few mornings. It really is amazing how much different the woods look at night as opposed to in the day. I've gotten turned around in the woods where I played as a kid for years and have hunted for the last 3. And it always happens when I'm walking someone else in to a spot too

    If you guys think it is hard finding your TREESTAND in the woods try packing your treestand in on your back and finding the TREE that you've preselected for it to go in hahaha now THAT is tough
    No I'm not dead

    to find a stand that is prehung just keep looking up I know that now make this light that goes on the stand and you keep a remote it is good to a couple hundred yards i think....Or just buy a GPS mine works great
