I posted this question in the blinds/feeders section but I've only gotten one comment, so I figure I'll post it here since I'm not the only one that would like to hear opinions on the matter.

So what do y'all prefer for bow hunting? Ladder, climber, hang-on? Any specific brands? Specific height? Any tips would be appreciated.

I like ladder but I have only gun hunted in a lock on stand but a bow would work great in it. I'm going to bow hunt out of a lock on this year. For ladder I recommend big game. I thinks it's called a deluxe. But for lock on I recommend millennium stands but they can get pricey. They have great ladder stand too but again they are pricey.

hang-on or ladder for me. Climbers require not only a very straight vertical tree, but no limbs. I use hang-on more than anything because I like having the seclusion compared to a giant ladder all the way to the ground. Doesnt really make a difference to the deer I dont think but thats just my opinion. Not big on brands as long as it has a comfortable seat and roomy enough platform that I dont feel like im going to fall off anytime I stand up. Just make sure you keep your hang-ons well maintained and taken care of and I would never sit in a hang-on without a safety harness.

For bow, a lock on. I can hang one on a tree with limbs which still has leaves for max concealment. Takes a little longer to put up vs a climber. Ladder stands are just to hard to move and set up if you are by yourself.

X2. I use two lag bolts through the frame and into the tree when I'm able. Never trust straps and chains when I'm 20 foot up and alone.

. Finally something I can answer! I love advanced tree stand technologies ( smackedown ) Easy to carry in Easy to set up! Yes it may take a little longer than ladder stands however the quality is awsome and its light!

The leaves of the tree make great concealment and the stand is easy to move and carry out.

Climber first, then hang on second.

Just be thankful you have trees big enough to put a tree stand in frown

Your question is a good one, but really depends on more than just personal preference. Most answers you have received so for are likely based on one's physical condition as well as what trees are available. I would prefer a chain on, but because I'm "Fat and over 50",the ladder stands make me feel much safer and with so many options out there, it's not hard to find one that's comfortable enough for an all day set if I choose. There are advantages to all 3 mentioned above, and to each his own, but when you know where you want to hunt before season, a ladder stand that has been pre set and sturdy is hard to beat on those dark mornings where you are trusting to feel more than your eye sight. Good luck with which ever you choose!

Climbing stand. I feel very safe using one, can't say the same for ladder stands I've been in.
