Default Tree Stand Height Question

I've heard that tree stand heights are different in different parts of the country. My company designs and manufactures products for tree stand hunters. I'm hoping you can help me with a little field research.

My questions are these:

1. How high is your tree stand?
2. What is the average height of tree stands where you hunt?
3. What is the highest you have ever heard of a tree stand being?
4. Where do you live?

Thanks for your help on this.

1. I usually put my climber around 15ft. my one ladderstand is closer to 20ft
2. that's about the average around here
3. I don't know if I've ever seen a stand that was much over 20', if at all
4. Southern Illinois

If its of any interest to you or your company I think the biggest advantage to a treestand isn't the winding or "out of view" aspect but the fact that YOU can see better. Not that the deer can see you less.

1. currently one is 10 ft. and two are 18 ft
2. avg varies on condition anywhere from 10-25 or so...
3.25 ft as high as i go..no need to go further
4.Sacramento, CA

things as a hunter i find key in a tree stand for us in CA....lightweight, very strong, NO SQUEKS, easy on and off a tree.....just for thought

not sure what parts you manufacture, but make them lightweight, strong and silent....and any tree stand company would want to use your parts...

1&2 Weprobably have45 16' ladder stands, so that would be 1 & 2. I had rather have a 20' ladder stand.
3 I have climbed as high as 50' with my climber, depends on how high I can go and have the best view.
4 NW Florida

You need to specify what kind of stands you mean (ladder, hang on, climber etc)

Thanks for the information. It is appreciated.

Our product is primarily used with ladder stands. It can be used to raise and lower your gun when entering and exiting the stand and secure the gun when hunting. We're primarily concerned with tree stand height for the Safe Retrieve Tether which is used when raising and lowering the gun.

Again, the information is greatly appreciated.
