My stand is 1.35 miles from where I can park my truck. I try to leave the truck by 5:15 AM to get there by dawn. I have taken quite a few deer over the years from this stand, but it is a morning stand only. Repeated stays in the PM have not resulted in any deer seen.

my longest was little over a 4 mile walk in, which was Nothing as to the drag out!

have countless set up well over a mile
but will admit as I got older I have found I prefer stands that are way closer, and mostly now only hunt places I can recover things with an atv, too old for packing or dragging deer anymore!

my dad used to have a saying....".if your going to be DUMB you better be TOUGH!"
I back packed a climbing tree stand into elk country about a mile and up and down about 1700 ft in elevation,
and as stated, dragging both an elk and a tree stand out and up out of a canyon over 5 trips put an end to that idea after one experience,

Well over a mile this last elk season. Altitude went down a few hundred feet, then up quite a few hundred feet. Still didn't get one.

Probably at least three miles hunting elk in 2018. Most of my deer hunting was well under a mile.

One of my hunting partner's longest trek to his stand --- is ten feet --- from his bed to his bedroom window.
