Default RE: Tree stand procedure?

I practice from both sitting and standing positions. I prefer to be standing to take the shot but sometimes you just don't have time to stand or you can't stand because they'll see you moving, I prefer to sit most of the time but I have to deal with restless leg syndrome so I sometimes have to stand up.

As far as setup goes I will usually attach the bottom of the climber first and then the upper sections. I double check to make sure both are tied together with a rope to keep the bottom from accidentally sliding down the tree. I then slide the upper part of the climber up about 3 or 4 feet and I climb in from underneath. I make sure I have my bow and other equipment attached to a rope so that I can pull it up once in the tree. Once everything is squared away I setup my safety harness, strap in my feet and up I go.
