Hi, I am looking for a 2 person tree stand. But I have some problems. I hunt national forest land and treestands cannot be left longer than 24 hours so I don't need anything permanent. I was thinking about a 2 person hang on or a 2 person climber if that exists. I'd like to have a stand that I can take apart to transport it through the woods. My only option is to have a 2 person stand, my girlfriend is wanting to go hog hunting with me and the day I put her in a stand alone is the day I will no longer need a 2 person stand. If anyone knows where I can find such a thing please let me know.

Never seen a 2 person hang on or climber. I'm for sure a 2 person climber doesnt exists. Id say just get 2 climbers and sit in close trees to each other.

Why not just go with a pop up blind? I know you can get 2 people in those.

I'd like to use a pop up blind but my hog spot is in the middle of a palmetto swamp. And as far as 2 trees beside each other, the trees in the swamp that are safe enough for a tree stand are sparse. Any ideas on converting a normal stand into a hang on?

I wouldn't want to modify a stand. Seems dangerous. Looks like you need a different spot for 2 people.

The top section is a little bulky, but not that heavy. The girlfriend could carry the ladder sections while you carry the top. You could skip one ladder section and put it up only about 10 feet. There is also a skirt that can go around the bottom for a bit of concealment. It holds two adults just fine and is easy to lean against the tree, then scoot up and loop the safety strap.

I have two of the game winner tandem tree stands and they are sturdy enough for two grown men. They do suggest having three grown men to hang them on the tree and I agree with them. I have put them up with my brother and it was not an easy task. I have put them up with 3 guys and it was fairly easy. The parts are not light and it would be difficult for your girlfriend to carry the ladder and depending on the distance, the top will not be easy for you to carry in a thick, swampy area.

Take a machete and just cut some shooting lanes. Be a lot easier than hauling a 2 man ladder stand and setting it up every time you go. Or like somebody mentioned, 2 hang ons, one low, one high and a set up climbing sticks.

cutting limbs or plants or otherwise altering the
landscape used to be a great big no-no on public
land. you might check first, but i'm sure it still is.
same for any stand that damages the bark on a tree.

I like the idea on setting up a pop up blind on a trail leading into the palmettos. The palmetto patch is about 1.5miles by 1 mile, it's huge. Any tips on luring hogs to me without baiting? Not sure if they would really respond to squealing or not.
