    Just curious as to what percentage each type gets used… :)

    Now, I know we all have several, but I’m curious about the one type you use most often.

    The end is near....

    i would love the chance to hunt out of hang on’s or ladder stands, unforutunitley I dont have private property to hang stands on… My climber does the job, but it is 10x as much work as just carrying your bow in and going up a ladder …. :thumbdown

    I’ve got a mix of fixed stands, both hanging and ladder, but all my new stands have been ladder due to safety. My wife has started bowhunting the last couple years and I feel better about her hunting out of a ladder stand. I end up hunting about 30% of the time out of a climber to try out new spots and take advantage of movement where I don’t have something set. :thumbup

    I chose climber but I use all 3 types of stands about equally! I have a ladder on one property a hang on on the other and use the climber to hunt public land!

    I have multiple ladder stands, lock ons, and one climber when it’s raining I tend to hunt out of shoot houses.

    Fixed hang-ons. Ladder stands are heavy and cumbersome to set up, and I have a climber, but the amount of trees actually suited for it are few and far between.

    :thumbdown I have to use my climber to hunt on the military bases. I hate it, because by the time I get in the woods and get set up, I’m pouring with sweat. Even when I go in a T-shirt in 50 degree weather. I prefer my fixed stand at home when I go on leave. I like the ground blind too on some field edges with thick cover all around. :thumbup
