Regardless of how your dad likes to hunt deer, he probably spends part of his time in a tree stand, and the words, “I just have too many treestands,” have seldom been uttered from a hunter’s mouth. There are basically three kinds of treestands. Hang-on stands are simple stands that attach to a tree by a belt or chain and require steps or climbing sticks to access. Ladder stands, available in both single- and double-wide configurations, are usually the most stable, and the ladder attached to the stand makes them easy to access. Climbing tree stands are two-piece stands used to climb a tree to hunt from a perched location. For gifting purposes, you can’t go wrong with a hang-on or ladder stand.
