    My option isn’t there. My stands average about 22-24′. I don’t think I have any under 20′. I have to be a little more careful with shot angle, but I started seeing a lot more deer when I moved higher. I get too fidgety on stand and would get busted pretty frequently.

    Last year I hunted no higher than 10′. And harvested a deer. But those set-ups had awesome concelment. This year my lowest is 20′. It all depends on the situation and cover. [=}=]

    Higher than 20 lower than 40 :p

    I too get fidgety… the ONLY way I hunt lower than 20 is if the wind is too strong that I get “sea sick” from being too high… started happening once this year… climbed half way down… much better :oops:

    25+ depends on canopy and time of the season how high I hunt, I like height, for example this morning 3 doe under my stand for a half hour. sometimes I go 28 to 30 when my strappers stop, and sometimes this is no good due to 2inch trees canopy’s block alot of shots

    I kinda knew 20+ was going to be the mainstay of tree stand height, but was really curious to see who has had success on a buck and at what height below 20′. Thanks everyone who has posted, I appreciete the input.

    well whats up neighbor (fellow nj hunter) well my best luck was something more like between 15inches to 20ft i use stands and switch it around quite a bit ,but like other said it depend whats around me and the cover so i could not cast a vote .,
    my best stand in the deep woods (ny state )is only 8 feet high .
    this year i got 2 bucks sitting on a cut of 10 inch stump behind bushes, does that count as anything .
    so seriously and in mine honest opinion the height of the lucky stand is not a logical question but height to your environment ,surroundings,and cover is the one :?:
    remember we all dont hunt in the same identical conditions and places so success for someone at 17-20 is not definetly sucess to others much lower just my 2 cents
    good luck everyone
    and happy hunting :thumbup 8D

    agree totally. I have shot 5 bucks from a stand that can only be 12 feet up. It has good concealment, thats the thing.
    If possible, i like 18 ft. :thumbup
