What would happen if you didn't use the telephone pole. If you have no family then don't worry about it, what's the worst that could happen.

I did that once when I was young and foolish. Each time I shifted my weight the stand would drop a good 6 inches. Most climbing stands are dangerous to use on hard surface trees as they are not getting enough "bite".

My cousins brother in-law used to hunt from one. Killed a nice buck from it, one day a wind gust came along and now he hunts in the comfort of his wheelchair. I like Huds advice, chainsaw is the only answer.

If I'm breathing, I have nothing to complain about.

Id find a tree with some cover and more importantly, some roots either where they are coming from or where they are going. Please don't climb a power pole.
