Every hunter has their own preferences when it comes to hunting. From which time of day to hunt is best to which firearms are the best to use, but we’re talking about tree stands here. Every hunter may even give you a completely different answer when it comes to which tree stand is the best for hunting. Well, many things come into play as well, such as what you’re actually hunting and where you’re hunting.
There are Different Types of Tree Stands for Hunting
There are quite a few tree-stand designs designed for different purposes. And with as many opinions on how to best perch and wait in them, tree stands have always been a point of contention among the most seasoned hunters.
A stand with a seat at the top of a ladder, the ladder stand connects to the tree. These tend to be a bit on the larger side but not as large as the box stand, due to the open design. With little protection from the elements, ladder stands remain stationary because of the size. On the same token, because of the stationary design, they offer more stability than smaller, portable options.
Enclosed to protect you from the elements, box stands are typically the largest design concept. Based on a basic, enclosed box house design- hence the name- they are great for staying warm with a portable space heater and space to move around. These are also most useful for seeing over long distance.
The most portable of tree stand options, climbing tree stands have a couple of different styles to connect to the tree. The part that wraps around the tree can be made from a thick cable or boomerang shaped piece of metal. The part that wraps around the tree is fastened to the stand with a bolt or pin for easy adjustment for different tree sizes.
