not sure what brand but i got it from the sportsman cataloge and it a climber / lounger it's to heavey for some of my of the beaten path trees so i'm thinking of a summit and i go anywhere from 20ft to 30 ft it all depends
I bought a stand at the Suffern Show last year (don't remember the name). Light stand and easy to use. So far I have only gone about 15 feet, but that is all the trees in my area normally allow with a climber without trimming too much.
I have two climbers. One old plywood job I got as a gift but never used. I got a new climber last year for X-mas but haven't used it yet either and I found an old 16ft ladder stand in the basement of a house I bought that I use all the time. On the private piece I hunt there are wooden stands built all over the place and other areas I like I just set up the ladder stand.
Fixed stands of different manufacturer,and climbing sticks, one tripod, and one ground blind. Use screw in steps only when we run out of climbing sticks. We hunt 20-25 feet. When it is possible, we prefer to put our stands in cedar or holly trees which I do not want damaged, so the climbing sticks are used there.
I use a summit viper for shotgun I like the shooting rail, a loggy bayou for the long hikes very light stand, also have a ol man for all day rut sits very comfey stand..20 - 25 feet depending on surrounding cover
huge fan of GORILLA treestands. the strap, not the chain. hook on the tree easier than any other stand.
i keep climbing until i hit cover. anywhere from 10'-20' (sometimes you have more cover down low. all depends on the surroundings)
2 trailhawks - love em, but cant fine them any more. couple of gorilla's - All hang ons. I lock them all with cable. It keeps the traspasser from taking them when they tressp [no swearing please] on your property. Normally 22-25ft. I have found the extra 5 feet makes a diference on getting busted.
