I like hunting out of a tripod stand and was looking for recommendations on any you have tested and approved. Looking for sturdy, 10' - 12'tall, and one that has an option to buy a roof kit.

Summit has an excellent tripod for gun or crossbow hunting. Nice platform, swivel all weather seat and very stable. The rails my be too high if your hunting with a verticals bow.
They offer an enclosure for it with a roof.

I have a couple left over leg kits for the summit strike pod 12-16’ I’d let go for $40 a piece. Still new in box, stored in my garage.

Located in the spring area

I think is the best way to hunting on the tree, because you can get the best security for you safety, and have the best vision to find more animal possible.

How do you have more visibility with your back against a tree rather than being in a tripod where you can see 360 degrees?

I do enjoy some good hunting on the tree.

Best value IMO is the Game Winner from Academy. $139 and usually goes on sale for less. The kit is $49 and it goes on sale too. Has a great platform and rail around it that gives you more confidence in the stand (feel safer).

This time of year, I much prefer a tripod to a box blind when hunting pigs at night!

I have 3 old car rims/tires that I put on ground and bolt the tripod to the lug holes on the rim to keep it from blowing over.
It takes an extra 15 minutes to move but doesn't blow over.
