    Hang on stands are by far my favarite way to hunt. Once set up you can enter and exit in seconds in total silence. Less bulk to carry in and out of the woods and freedom of movement is usually much better than any other type.

    I have a climber for hunts where I’m not allowed to use a hang on or if the chance for theft is unusually high but other than that i’m always walking up to a tree and scooting right up as soon as I arrive. [=}=]

    I use ladder stands. I feel safer, so i can stay out longer and not be so tense. :thumbup

    Climbers. I like having the ability to move around in case the deer shift their travel lanes(and they will sometimes). It also gives me the option of more than one hunting location. :D

    I voted hang on,that’s seems to be what I use the most,but I use all 3 types.

    I guess I like the hang ons best because most places I hunt,I can leave my stands with little to no chance of them getting stolen,and they’re usually on high travel areas,so no need to relocate alot.Hang ons are usually very easy to hang,blend in pretty good,very sturdy,and I like not having to carry a stand with me all the time.

    hang ons. Never really used a climber except for once this year.
    I felt like i was really sticking out there as opposed to hugging the tree with my lock ons. Plus I like as much concealment as i can get so I’m always looking for double and triple trunked trees with limbs. Climbers seem to pretty much eliminate that. Most of the hardwood trees I hunt out of in Indiana seem to lend themselves to a hang on. But……..a lot of guys use a climber so there must be something to them :thumbup
    I usually hang my stands in advance, unscrew the first 5 steps and take with me so getting back into the stand is easy and quiet.

    Timbertall baby lite. Very light(12lb) easy to set up and carry and for me I find it to be comfortable although it may be a little tight for anyone over 200 lbs.

    MY VOTE IS CLIMBERS VIA BUCKSHOT EQUALIZER
    IT WILL FIT ON A VERY SMALL TREE IF NEEDED AND
    WILL ADJUST EASILY WITH SMALL CRANKS WITHOUT UNHOOKING ANY CABLES , THIS STAND AND A PEICE OF 4 X 8 COMO BURLAP
    CAN’T BE BEAT.

    IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT GO TO BUCKSHOT EQUALIZER WEBSITE AND WATCH VIDEO.

    BY THE WAY THE SEAT ON THE VIDEO ON MY STAND HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A SUMMIT SLING SEAT.

    I voted other, but in fact have four homemade stands on my land, one is about 12×14 with a staircase and a deck, thinking about running a 400′ cable from the satlite so I can watch the Packers loose. But I also have climbers and two ladder stands. I never know were to go ](*,) but then I never know were I’m going anyhow :D

    Love the comfy ladder stands and like the versatility of the climbers. Hand-ons are in between. Safety is the main thing.
