Question by yo_sucka. Uploaded on January 23, 2010
as high as your comfortable, my hang ons are about 15 i have 2 15 foot ladderstands and 1 22 foot ladderstand, and a climber that i have taken about 25 feet, but dont worry if your a little scared of heights, because you can get used to it, and just go as high as your comfortable
I'd agree tboggio's answer. That's about the heights most of my stands are in the 15 to 16 foot range. About 20 foot or so is the highest I've ever gone in a climber.
REALLY DEPENDS ON YOUR AREA, MOST OF MINE ARE SET AT 15 FEET, BUT I DO HAVE ONE AT 10 FEET, AND ONE AT 20 FEET. SO I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THE OTHER 2 ANSWERS, WHAT EVER YOUR AREA CALLS FOR AND WHATEVER YOUR ARE COMFORTABLE WITH
ive been 30 ft up. just get high enough to where you have cover in your tree.
15-18 feet seems to be the standard.
I prefer 20' to 25'. I've been much higher but don't recommend that. Wear a safety harness/belt
I'm with steve on this one. 20-25 is my favorite level and I use a summit climber to get there with a safety harness.
ive only shot one deer out of a 12' stand the rest i was sitting on fallen down trees and stuff...doesnt really matter just play the wind..
mine is up about 15 feet i've taken a climber up to about 25 and my neighbors is about 30 or 35
All depends on your comfort level and how high you actually need to go. Being higher does put you more out of sight but it increases the risks. If you bow hunt and get too high it can play hell on your shot when deer are right underneath you.
You can only go as high as the trees will allow..In some areas about 10 to 15 feet may be the maximum.. Whereas in other areas are about 20 to 25 feet that could be possible to do!!!
At 25 feet this afternoon i was winded promptly by the lead deer. And i take great scent precautions. If they're downwind of you, it don't matter...they smell you!
I say a minimum of 20 feet to get your scent up and body out of their immeidate line of sight. I personally prefer to be at least 25 feet and in a pine tree.
I hang mine about 14-16 ft. up and they come within 20 yards of me. It all depends on your particular situation. I go up to about 20-25 ft. in climbers though.
