I go as high as I can go till I hit the first branch. This gun season I shot my ten from a tree I was 45 ft in. The reason you ask why I'm that high. Is because I have a gun and not a bow. From that tree I could see two swamps, 3 ridges and a high line. What a sweet spot.

It is quit a view. You have confidence in your stand when you can see 5-6 pinch pts. I shot a big doe the first morning and a ten pt the second mornong. First time I ever sat this place.
