I graduated High School in 89 and worked for my Uncle building Tree stands. Striker Tree stands built in Harris NC, we had the sit and stand rifle stands that you faced the tree in then developed a bow stand called The Tree-cat. Me and my cousin were tasked with taking photos for our new brochures that were going to be printed up and we set up in some tall pines to get the photos for our new brochures. So I came up with Tallpine89 from that experience. The business went under as both my cousins passed away early on in accidents and my uncle suffered a stroke that made him unable to keep producing the stands, he also has since passed on. I'd bet that some of you remember these stands and may even be using them still. They were made out of aircraft aluminum and strong. We use to work all the hunting shows in the Spring and early summer selling stands from NC out through SC, GA, FL, TN and a few out west. They were endorsed by Joe Kelley and Sammy Schrimchere (not sure how he spelled his last name).
