If your wanting to move around, why not just buy a good climber?

true, but I completely understand the desire to slip in quietly with no weight on your back and simply climb up in a pre-hung stand.

I would love to have about 15 more stands so I could cover every possible wind direction and have all of them already hung so I could just come and go without worrying about packing anything in or out or setting up and taking down...

Yup. Sometimes it's best to have stands prehung in early spring. Especially rut stands. Slip in, climb and hunt...no noise at all.

i have a climber.. but they are so much hassle taking in and out of the field and make so much noise.. and the risk of picking the wrong tree and slipping is sort of scary too.. i want something sturdy, cheap, and easy to work with.. thanks for the walmart idea i think i will take a look into that in the morning :]

Is it possible to find a hang-on stand for less than $50 that doesn't creak or make noise? Are they sturdy and safe? If so, I'll have to re-think why I'm buying stands that cost three times that amount.

That's all I use because climbers are useless here. I leave some of mine up year around if they're in a good spot. I take a piece of chain and a turnbuckle long enough to go around the tree and the stand frame and tighten the turnbuckle. It acts as an added safety measure and really holds the stand tight so it won't move. After season I remove the seat cushions and the ratchet straps and just leave the stand. The only things left are all metal. It's a good idea to loosen the turnbuckle a little, though to allow for growth of the tree before next season.

I have also made some out of some chairs and building a wood platform under them. They are pretty heavy, but if you leave them up permanent, you only have to get them up there once.

Remember, you get what you pay for. I wouldn't entrust my safty to a cheap stand period.
