As I have gotton older I have gravitated to latter stands. Of the 13 stands I got out in the wild 11 are latter stands. I use 15 footers on knolls/20 footers on
flat ground all on private land. Some are near food sources, others near bedding areas so they go hot/cold. I have had a few stolen even when locked. I've had a fear of heights but over it now. The latter stand with the full harness vest gives me the security I want. I wait post season to buy the stands from Wal-Mart,Sportmans Guide or E-bay. I have them out by July 1st for the season so the critters can get used to them. They are a pain to lug into the woods but worth it.

Apologies - Where you see "latter" in the above message, please replace with the word "ladder".

some kids just never learn. granted i agree taking a deer with a compound is probably more difficult than a crossbow. BUT like i beleive critter gitter said in an earlier post, you still have to be in the woods, find the deer, aim, hold steady, and all the stuff that goes along with a rifle or muzzleloader hunt at a reduced yardage.

just wait till i see you at church boy. its on ...

just kidding folks im trying to teach this young un a few things about hunting. but yall know how teenagers can be.
