Default Are Gun hunters using tree stands

I got in a big arguement with my brother he's a bow hunter and I prefer a rifle, handgun or muzzleloader, you know I like to hear the bang. He claims gun hunters don't use tree stands. I know in Maine we do. What does any one think?

I recently saw a figure that stated that 94% of hunters surveyed hunt from a tree or ladder stand.

Your brother doesn't know what he is talking about...

Why would the weapon determine if you hunted from a tree stand or not???

I hunt with bow, muzzleloader and centerfire...I use treestands to get my scent above the deer's nose, for the advantage of seeing above vegetation and being above the deer's line of sight...

The weapon has nothing to do with it...

I will use ladder stands, climbers, bait, plots, sex lures or anything else that is legal.

I have a tree codo.8 x 8 x 8 . Roof, windows that open and close. A heater, swivel chair and a gun vise that swivels. I often spend the night in it. Stair steps and railings. I am disabled. I have taken old disguarded artificial christmas trees and made it look like a big evergreen tree. It over looks a 2 acre grass and clover field on one side and a creek bed on the other side.
