Default HOW "HIGH" are YOU?

When climbing and setting your portable treestands, what height do most people hang their stands?
I myself usually go up about 20 feet. I have a rope that I pull my bow up with and it's 20' in length, I tie it to my safety bar and when all the slack is out I am approx. 20' in the tree.
I have seen some hunters permanent stands as high as 40' in a tree.

I mostly have tree ladders that are 16 feet high so thats about how high I go I have never been seen in a tree by deer so I have never had any reason to go any higher. I don't like climber stands (personal prefrence) I only use fixed position stands.

Anywhere between 15 and 25 feet.

It all depends on the tree and the terrain.

I don't do fixed position stands but I go 25 - 30 feet high in a climber.

With my ladders I am 16" high. But my climber and hang ons have me anywhere between 20-30". As said before, it depends on the terrain, cover etc.

I am usually 10- 20 feet. Do the same thing, I have a 20 foot rope and when I get to the end of it, I know I am at least or around 20 feet high![8D]
