Only as high as you are comfortable with. I have killed Deer from 10' up to about 35' high. The tree and the shots it allows usually dictate how high or low I go.

I try to stay around 15-20 feet. Last year I hunted one morning in a buddy's stand that was close to 40' high on the downhill side and a 'comfortable' 35 feet on the uphill side. I've hunted some high stands before buy my goodness was that one up there. It was so high that when I was climbing up I had to stop about 10' below the standand hug the tree to gather my nerves! It was in a mature white oak stand that didn't have any under brush at all in a residential neighborhood. You had to be that high to keep the deer from seeing you (according to my buddy at least). I think had I just stoodon the ground wearing dress clothes looking like I was a local resident the deer would have just come up to me and tried to eat out of my hand. The more I think about it I think the treestand was just for effect. Urban hunting at it's finest. I'm glad I don't have to hunt like that every day.

Am I a SPIKE yet?

Average 15 to 20ft. Not much more than 20 though because like you that is long as my hoist rope is.
