What kind of stands are you talking about. There are different ways for different stands.

You ain't gonna do much better than a case hardened chain or heavy cable with a QUALITY padlock like an American.

I agree with uncle matt. If you have ladder stands, you can run chain or bicycle cable through the different sections, in addition to chaining and locking the top/seat portion. Hang-on you can chain to the tree. I suppose you can also chain/cable steps to the tree, but may have to be more inventive in how you do it.

I don't know what kind of stands you have but I only use the hang on type with a ladder. What I found works pretty good is like everyone says put a bike lock on it but I use 2 people usually don't want to bother with 2. and as far as the ladders go I drill a hole in the top of the top section and the bottom of the bottom section and scres a lag bolt through them right into the tree. this step only takes a couple of min. and I have never lost one since. People are mostly opertunists and don't come back with a wrench and bolt cutters.
