15 to 30 feet, it depends on the tree.

about 20'-22' and that is good for me. I get this nervous feeling when I go above that.[:-]

I go as low as 6' and the highest I go is 20'. depends on the terrain and the available cover. I don't go over 20' b/c I find at that height a light breeze can move a Jack pine several feet which can be very disconcerting! On windy days I sit on the ground.

15 max feet for me, and I actually measure. I like to get them in close, but I don't like steep angle shots.

I like 18-20 staa atop three clibing sticks, I've read articles that 12 is the best, guess if you can get a good backdrop there is no wrong, but I like a low-mid exit wound..

When I hunt from either a lock-on stand or climber, I stay between 15 and 18 feet.

22' in my favorite tree. (that way I can hang my pack onthe broken branch on the side nearby!)
