Good deals at Dicks but the staff is usually infuriating.

Not sure I will have to look. It's more for my father to use as he has trouble walking too far and climbing treestands.

Default ladder stands

ladderstands which i have from dicks are good on price but hard on butt and room.
couple things you can do. go to wal-mart and get padded seats with arm rests for around 16 dollars.they have pouch to store and are comfortable.

but best is to get a seat that has sling so you are up off the metal seat.its hard to sit more than 4 hrs in those treestands.put the seat above the ladderstand seat and use that area for your feet.
another tip is to build a wooden platform out the sides.
i think you can goggle my friends directions.

try[ ladderstand wings] it may come up on PM and i will steer you through how to build it.

yes they do. i assume they are called COMFORT ZONE 15 ft...
seat is for young person.leaning against tree is not good with your back.
you can buy optional side rails, but my wal-mart stadium seat idea is better.without side rails it feels like you are going to fall off sides.
i am older and need comfort.stadium seat and my platform upgrade helps.
but better idea is buy a strap on sling type seat and put it above the seat secured on tree then use the ladderstand seat for your feet.

no way i can sit all day in comfort zone treestand........i saw sling type seat ,a steel one at dicks for around 69 dollars but they gone.that is way to go.

in fact i have summit climber i use for archery but i am going to use the top seat section with my dicks ladderstand in gun season.my feet will be on the seat platform of dicks stand where you sit.
this way i dont have to climb stand in dark in morning at 20 degrees in gun season and will have seat that i can sit in all day........

take care sproul
