We have a combo lock. However, I have a set of keys that stay in my truck with the key to toolbox, spare house key, and pad lock on rtic cooler. If we had a lease gate key it would for sure be on the key ring that stays in the truck!

Not because you may or may not be old but being too excited to remember the simple things could be a problem
Thatís my excuse anyway

I try not to forget that hunting is fun even if you rarely see a deer from the stand. If you have low expectations you are rarely disappointed.

Spare key tied to a tree with #9 wire in an undisclosed location works great. Current place has a combo thankfully

I Try and never leave without a 3 ton chain-fall, snatch blocks, chain, tow straps, shackles, and leather gloves. There's Nothing worse than being stuck up to your door with no tools, and nobody is available or willing to help. First thing I did several years back was go and buy the above tools and have a winch on my truck. I've seen a 3 ton chain-fall pull out lifted trucks backwards if you can't go forward with your winch. It's a longer process, but it works!

Spray bottle to fill with water....so you can cool down every 15-30 min and fill with vanilla if you want to kill some deer
