The assembly procedure has been refined so one person can set it up, and anyone can very quickly tear it down. Once trained, allow at least 45 minutes to an hour for one person to properly install, string, and initially tension the net set. An experienced manager will delegate several setup tasks at once to assistants, cutting set-up time to under 15 minutes. For super fast sets, remove the nets, secure the rigging, and place the fully assembled poles on a vehicle roof rack for transport to the next net site.

Do not invest in a system that fails to address tensioning and mainline spacing on every net in the stack.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style820\"\u003e\u003cem class=\"style3\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003eThe BCM system comes assembled with fixed spacing between net carriers, guaranteeing that nets will hang evenly top to bottom, every time. Sturdy pole anchors ensure the 3H set will go up straight and stay straight all night long. NOTE: Purchasing and using mist nets from the same manufacturing lot will ensure a properly tensioned set-up, but slight differences in length between nets can easily be addressed with simple adjustments at each pole and if wind conditions require, the fixed spacing between the net carriers can be manually adjusted to increase or decrease the amount of bag in each net as needed.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style816\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style675\"\u003e6.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style47\"\u003e Do not underestimate the amount of tension required and forces involved to hoist nets 25-30 feet into the air. Any system should use high quality rope running through a marine grade pulley to prevent snags, wear, twisting, fraying or beading that will interfere with smooth operation while raising and lowering nets.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style827\"\u003e\u003cem class=\"style3\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003eBCM has sourced out the best rope after years of trial and error, and even under extreme use by professional consultants spending 300 or more net-nights in the field each season the BCM system requires little or no rope or pulley maintenance for 2-3 years.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style816\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style675\"\u003e7.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style47\"\u003e Finally, remember conditions and objectives change from field site to field site. Don't choose a system that is inflexible enough to prevent unique deployments or adjustments to special conditions. Why lock yourself into a stacked net system that will only allow a certain number of nets to be deployed to a certain height? Why be confined to working your pulley rope at the pole instead of in a more convenient (or safer) location? What prevents nets from becoming tangled in the leaf-litter when they are collapsed to reach a bat in the top tier? How easily can poles be transported to the field, erected, and broken down, in the dark without losing small pieces or damaging fragile parts?\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style819 f-lp\"\u003e\u003cem class=\"style3\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style221\"\u003eFrom the modular pole sections to the ropes to the net carriers to the guy lines and pole anchors the BCM system is designed for ease of use, long life, and the vagaries of any situation that may arise in the field. Want to turn your 3H system into a 4H system? Two extra pole sections and a set of net carriers added to the pulley rope will do the job. And, the poles are modular and study enough to do double duty to raise bat detectors, camera systems, or harp traps 30-feet in the air.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2017-09-25T13:19:40-04:00","created_at":"2017-09-25T13:27:49-04:00","vendor":"Bat Conservation and Management, Inc.","type":"Capture Gear","tags":["Poles"],"price":5000,"price_min":5000,"price_max":74500,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":1275783348251,"title":"Complete System","option1":"Complete System","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"MN-3","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"BCM Triple High Mist Net Pole System - Complete System","public_title":"Complete System","options":["Complete System"],"price":74500,"weight":18144,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":1,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""},{"id":2636809633819,"title":"Replacement\/extra middle pole","option1":"Replacement\/extra middle pole","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"MN-4","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"BCM Triple High Mist Net Pole System - Replacement\/extra middle pole","public_title":"Replacement\/extra middle pole","options":["Replacement\/extra middle pole"],"price":5000,"weight":2268,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""},{"id":2636809732123,"title":"Replacement top pole with pulley","option1":"Replacement top pole with pulley","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"MN-5","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"BCM Triple High Mist Net Pole System - Replacement top pole with pulley","public_title":"Replacement top pole with pulley","options":["Replacement top pole with pulley"],"price":5500,"weight":2268,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""},{"id":2636809764891,"title":"Replacement bottom pole with cleat","option1":"Replacement bottom pole with cleat","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"MN-6","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"BCM Triple High Mist Net Pole System - Replacement bottom pole with cleat","public_title":"Replacement bottom pole with cleat","options":["Replacement bottom pole with cleat"],"price":5500,"weight":2268,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-1396.jpg?v=1506362581","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide.jpg?v=1506362592","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide--2.jpg?v=1506362614","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-2452.jpg?v=1506362621","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-2460.jpg?v=1506362629","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-7521.jpg?v=1506362635","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-7760.jpg?v=1506362647","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-7767.jpg?v=1506362653","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-7779.jpg?v=1506362716","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-8098.jpg?v=1506362728","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-223754.jpg?v=1506362736","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/dsc0167jpg.jpeg?v=1506362803","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/3Happlication-3168.jpg?v=1506483085"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2378\/9221\/products\/frontpageslide-1396.jpg?v=1506362581","options":["Options"],"content":"\u003ch2 style=\"text-align: center;\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/106782175\" width=\"480\" height=\"270\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003e\n\u003cspan\u003eBigger is Better! \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style248\"\u003eThe Original Triple High Forest Filter Mist Nets.\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style498\"\u003eThe portable \u003cstrong\u003eForest Filter mist net system\u003c\/strong\u003e consists of poles and an associated hoist system capable of creating a huge mist net 24’ (7.3m) tall.

Sturdy pole anchors ensure the 3H set will go up straight and stay straight all night long. NOTE: Purchasing and using mist nets from the same manufacturing lot will ensure a properly tensioned set-up, but slight differences in length between nets can easily be addressed with simple adjustments at each pole and if wind conditions require, the fixed spacing between the net carriers can be manually adjusted to increase or decrease the amount of bag in each net as needed.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"style816\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style675\"\u003e6.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style47\"\u003e Do not underestimate the amount of tension required and forces involved to hoist nets 25-30 feet into the air.

Don't choose a system that is inflexible enough to prevent unique deployments or adjustments to special conditions. Why lock yourself into a stacked net system that will only allow a certain number of nets to be deployed to a certain height? Why be confined to working your pulley rope at the pole instead of in a more convenient (or safer) location? What prevents nets from becoming tangled in the leaf-litter when they are collapsed to reach a bat in the top tier?

Sure we knew of the terrific lightweight poles already commercially available, but the high price for these featherweight poles caused us to look at other avenues (did I mention we needed A LOT of poles?).\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eDutifully we set out starting with aluminum shafts featuring wooden pegs for stacking. Easy to build at a campsite (which a lot of them were), had seamless connectors, and worked great except for when the wooden pegs would swell slightly when wet, causing many afternoons to be (literally) whittled away. Later we tried using some electrical conduit with all its wonderful connectors to avoid our wooden problems, but it turns out that conduit should really just be used for conduit. You can't slide the net loops over the pole connectors, and conduit is HEAVY. Other material like bamboo can't be stacked into a double high, and since bamboo doesn't come apart, good luck reaching the top mainline on a single high net. So it turns out there is a reason why 36'' stackable poles have proved the test of time...everything else just seems less versatile or just plain sucks.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eSo midway through that summer we broke down, started over, and made our own all metal poles with CNC machined ends. We decided up front we would use for less expensive material instead of trying to make them featherweight, since rarely would we net several days' hike from a road and frankly sometimes they are used to whack brush down when we need an extra foot or two for the net length. After beating on these poles for a few years, we felt they have stood up to enough of our abuse and can now be available to fellow bat and bird netters. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003ePlease note that we sell poles individually instead of packs, as people prefer to build their own configurations.

Easy to build at a campsite (which a lot of them were), had seamless connectors, and worked great except for when the wooden pegs would swell slightly when wet, causing many afternoons to be (literally) whittled away. Later we tried using some electrical conduit with all its wonderful connectors to avoid our wooden problems, but it turns out that conduit should really just be used for conduit. You can't slide the net loops over the pole connectors, and conduit is HEAVY. Other material like bamboo can't be stacked into a double high, and since bamboo doesn't come apart, good luck reaching the top mainline on a single high net. So it turns out there is a reason why 36'' stackable poles have proved the test of time...everything else just seems less versatile or just plain sucks.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003eSo midway through that summer we broke down, started over, and made our own all metal poles with CNC machined ends. We decided up front we would use for less expensive material instead of trying to make them featherweight, since rarely would we net several days' hike from a road and frankly sometimes they are used to whack brush down when we need an extra foot or two for the net length.

The grocery bag handles provide a great way to keep trammel lines separated and easy to find. Unfortunately after so many uses the bags are destroyed and replaced. We searched for a thick mil color coded grocery bag for our own use and apparently this type of bag just is not manufactured. White Nose Syndrome and the stringent decontamination protocols finally killed the mist net grocery bag storage system in 2009. With the WNS decon protocols, we may be washing and attempting to dry dozens of mist nets every night. Washing a mist net in a plastic bag....well, just doesn't work. We tried lingerie bags, mesh bags used to keep delicates together in the laundry, but the nets tear when snagged on the zippers, and they snag all the time. Worse yet, both grocery bags and laundry bags are susceptible to other items in your kit bag puncturing and snagging nets.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style310\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"style250\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eThe handy solution.\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003c\/span\u003eThese heavy duty mesh bags are custom manufactured exclusively for BCM.
