Q. Which treestand is right for me, a climber or a hang-on treestand?
A. Many hunters immediately go straight for a climbing treestand first without fully considering whether or not a fixed position treestand might serve their needs better than a climber. Several things to consider before you make your choice: Are your stand sites secure? Many hunters on private ground choose to hunt from hang-on style treestands because of their ability to conceal the stand and the ease of use. Climbing Sticks and tree steps make getting into a hang-on treestand much easier than using a climbing treestand. Conversely if you hunt from public lands where you can't securely leave your hang-on treestand in the woods, you may prefer the instant portability of a climber. Hunting from multiple treestand locations allows flexibility to avoid pressure or wait out wind direction, so many hunters will choose to hang several fixed position stands and keep a climber handy to quickly get into those less permanent sites.
Q. How does a Climbing Treestand work?
A. The basic principle of a climbing treestand is that its a two-piece stand which alternately steps up the tree in small increments. While standing on the platform one grasps the top half and lifts it as high as comfortably possible and attaches it to the tree, then supporting your weight on the climber portion you lift the bottom half with your feet as high as possible and re-attach to the tree. Climbing with a treestand is simply a repetition of this motion and descending is just the reversal.
Q. What to look for when purchasing a Climbing Treestand?
A. For those new to climbing treestands its important to distinguish first the advantages of the sit down/stand up style of climber! This style of climber has a bar that typically runs across the front of the upper half "climber" portion of the stand. The other common style of climber is that with an open front where you need to lean forward and support your weight for climbing on your forearms which is much less safe and more tiring,however for bow hunting this presents less obstructions for your bottom axle of your bow. Which style you go with, many gun/muzzleloader hunters prefer the solid closed front, while most bow hunters prefer the open front/ hybrid style stand for the freedom it gives them.
