Default What type of deer stand do you use?

Also, what type is best? I am looking to buy one. I will be doing mostly bowhunting. What are advantages/disadvantages?

Thanks

The only options seem to be climber on your poll...

personally, I have lock ons, ladders, & climbers... depends on where I am and what the deer are doing.

I love my Summit Viper SS. It's light, quiet, and real easy to use. Very comfortable too with the foot rest.

I used ladders and lock ons... little iffy with the climbers. I got to get used to them and i'll be fine.

I use mostly ladders any more, but also use hang-on stands and climbers. If I had to only own one I would pick the climber, it gives the most flexibility to move around. The only draw back is you need a fairly straight tree to climb.

I usually sit on a ladder, but I like climbers as well.

If you find good sign you can easily move a climber to that spot rather than taking down andputting aladder stand back up.

I have an Ameristep ladder stand and a SummitUltimate ViperSSclimber. I really like the ladder stand because its easy to get intoand very quiet but if the rut is on then I use the climber so i can move around the woods. Both are extremely comfortable especially the viper, and the viper only weighs 19lbs so it's easy to carry!

Ladder stands make me feel safer as I am connected to the ground. I think they are way easier to set up ( especially by yourself) and get in and out of than a hang on stand. However you lose the mobility you get with a hang on or climber.

4 Lock-ons and 1 ladder stand. Climbers don't work to well here. Too many branches to cut before even being able to try one of those.

I hunt from ground blinds (store bought and homemade), hang on stands, ladder stands and also just climb a tree.
