Cons: Getting my fat arse up in the tree stand in the first place (I'm older than dirt so that's a double wammy), Packing a tree stand in and out, most stands are noisy putting them in, not all but most, kinda hard to get a better angle for a shot placement while stuck in a stand, you know, little difficult to step 3 feet to the right when that first step is a DOOZY , I actually know a fella that forgot he was in a tree stand when a 12 point monster stepped out and he tried stepping to the right to get a good shot angle Luckily he caught himself, sceered the buck right out of the county though with his "OH CRAP". Took me a bit to stop laughing when he told me that story.

I heard of a guy down in Texas that was up in a tower stand with no sides on it that did the same thing when he saw a big buck and got all excited. Unfortunately the story was that he fell and broke both legs!
