    i say climbers because i can move them depending on circumstances and because i can go as high as i want to get good shooting lanes. also because mine is very comfortable.

    I voted hang on but I have and use, on a regular basis, all 3 types.
    the hang ons are my preferred stand. It’s so much more convienant to walk into the woods and climb into a stand.
    That being said, there is more homework involved with placing one.

    I have to say I prefer the ladder. The lands that I hunt are private and theft (so far !!!) hasn’t been a issue. If I had to worry about theft or If I was hunting public I would go to a climber. Getting in and out with very little disturbance is a ladders best feature IMO!!!

    I have and do use all three, but when I hunt a piece of property, I like the versatility you get with a climber. Being able to move quickly and quietly from tree to tree without spooking game is a key issue for me. Sometimes just a 10 yard move will result in a shot on deer. Plus it enables me to hunt a tree several times to see which view is best before coming back in the off season and hanging a few more permanant stands.

    I like my 20′ Summit stationary ;but also use climber from Summit. Ladder is more like easy chair-lot of customizing on it.

    I use ladder stands now for the safety aspect ( bringing the kids up now). But my favorite stands are my tripod stands. They get you up 15 feet plus at your feet, tops and sides to keep you dry and out of some of the wind, Camo backgrounds let you get away with more movement and quieter than the rest.

    two years ago I had 5, 16.5′ ladder stand made at the local Ag shop and I really like them. But this year I bought 3 hang on’s and some climbing sticks for them. And let me tell you I really really like the hang ons. Granted where I hunt it is very hard to patteren the deer so I had to move afew of them this year but it was well worth it. Hang ons has my vote.

    I use all 3 but i like lock on’s better because i feel lock on’s are more secure & more comfortable now if i see deer movement where i don’t have a stand i will put the climber up in that area. [=}=]
