Default How high do you sit?

I was just wonder how high most of you sit for bowhunting. I prefer to be no less than 20ft off the ground when i got a bow in my hand. What about you?

I prefer to be on the ground in a blind makes the deer and turkey so much more enjoyable to watch.

I have probably been averaging around 15ft lately... I've shot deer as low as about 8ft and as high as around 20ft....

I hunted for years at 12 to 15 and would get busted from time to time.........the past 10 years all my stands are 18 to 22......rarely ever do I get busted......less than once a season.

Good Luck!

Right around 17 feet on average, sometimes lower earlier in the season, and sometimes much higher if I'm in tall timber when the foliage is off
