Default Good Treestands?

Hi all, this is my first post here although probably not my last, I am addicted to hunting. I am thinking about buying a new ladder stand to hunt with and I have only bought one before, we build permanent stands for the most part. So I was wondering what I should be looking for or any suggestions you have. Thanks

I know I'm getting a Summit Viper SS climber. That way I can take it wherever I go hunting.

Most ladder stands are good. But if your going to be far back into the woods with no way to drive in there, then the climbers/hang ons are the best for you.

I have one of these http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=402510&pdesc=Gander_Mountain_Mag num_XL_17_Ladder_Treestand&cname=Ladder-Stands&aID=503H4&merchID=4006&r=view

And two of these http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=402509&pdesc=Gander_Mountain_Bas ic_15_Ladder_Treestand&cname=Ladder-Stands&aID=503H4&merchID=4006&r=view

But you can pretty much get whatever you want.

Welcome to the forums.

I like a heavier built all aluminum, all welded ladder stand. Most of the ones I have are built with two inch conduit with smaller conduit for bracing/steps. The last four I bought I had the builder make a simple frame to put an aluminum roofing top on it. I use camo tarp aroundthe back and a camo burlap on the front. Welcome to the board.......

Look for the ladder stand on wheels. It is made for lugging aorund. You can out your gear and deer and walk out at the end of the day.
