    I'm curiouse !

    Do you guys mostly use ladder stand type highseats/treestands or do you use a fair amount of LocOn's and climbers ?

    My own personal preference is for the climbing stands . The way I typically hunt they're easier to move around and put into use .

    Quite easy to hook it on he bottom of a fairly straight tree climb up to your desired height and trim away some limbs with a pocket saw .

    LocOn's are okay but I usually need to put in quite a few screw in steps and once it's up before the season I have no intention of moving it until after the seasons over . Same can be said for the ladder stands , plus i usually like someone with me when I put up ladder stands just in case I fall and break my neck !

    i use both but in the uk it is mainly ladder stands known as highseats here, the climbers are excellent but require something that is at lease partly straight which we lack here in the uk , as soon as the trees get to a good height here the harvest them .

    For deer stalking? Never, but a few people use permanent 'doe boxes' which is the same sort of idea but made from wood.

    I got a Summit Viper climbing tree stand a couple of years back from Cabelas and its a cracking bit of kit. It takes a little bit practice getting it set up, especially in the dark but after a few tries it soon becomes second nature. I shot my first roe from it last autumn and would never have seen it had I not been in the tree stand.

    over here on the public land we hunt, we can't have any permenant structures so these climbers are great as they have shoulder straps allowing you to carry them in and out.

    one bit of as advice is to get one with an adjustable gun rest. The regular rail at the front is too low to use as a rifle rest comfortably. With the summit models you can buy the adjustable rest as an extra.
