Thread: Climbing Stands

    The first tree stand I purchased was a Loggy Bayoo self-climber. Itís cumbersome to carry long distances in the woods and is a bit complicated and noisy to get it around the tree. Climbing is noisy too, and itís a workout on my stomach and thighs. Once at the right height, you have to cinch straps around the tree to keep it stable. The platform tends to creak if I shift my weight- especially if it isnít exactly level. On the plus side, itís roomy and comfortable to sit in, and it comes with a shooting bar which, unfortunately, isnít very stable. You couldnít depend on it for s steady rest.

    A hang-on stand may be more of a pain to set up, but once it is, climbing in and out is much easier. My 2 cents.

    I had a Summit Viper years ago and although it was very comfortable, it just didn't suit where i hunting. I ended up selling it and replacing with several ladder stands, but if i was to get another climber i'd go Summit 100%

    Go to a store you can touch and feel all the stands before you buy, most likely you will find Lone Wolf superior..

    I used a JX3 hybrid this year for hunting and some climbing sticks... Super comfortable... doubles as a backpack, and quieter than any climber and very safe to use.

    I also used a tethrd mantis. Light, safe and more comfortable than a hang on.

    Something to think about... all are quiet, easy to use, comfortable and safe. Disclaimer... I do not work for anyone of these but saddle hunting is growing fast in the USA and slow here.

    Good advice...and don't forget to actually sit in them...I bought one years ago that looked great, but once I set it up I found it was extremely uncomfortable. The arm side rails were far to snug on my my hips when I was wearing my hunting cloths. Far to restrictive for hunting.
