Default New stand

The more I look the less I can make a decision. Can't choose between a fixed or ladder???? A lot of things go into this: stand weight, my age, physical condition, comfort, ease of putting up.......

HM I will quote you from another post

"use the force, pick one"

Just kidding I know what you mean every time I research stuff like that I go crazy trying to pick one out
Good luck

Not to mention the cost comparisons, the economy, necessity...

ronn, the force is split down the middle. This new stand should give me a good 8 years so not too many will be needed after that.

yea that wasn't me. but between a fixed with the steps or sticks and a ladder it seems to be more or less a wash to me.

i'm very happy with the climbers. that said I have a pretty good stash of stands now and will use each kind if i think they will work better in a certain spot. I'm have 6 climbers, a dozen hang on, and a couple ladders, a couple climbing sticks and strap on steps for the hang ons. by the end of the season and because of the number of spots i will hunt i'll have all the climbers out and 4 or 5 hang ons with spots last year i wish i had had a ladder. For several reasons i hunt allot of different properties, which, the reasons, wouldn't help you make a tough decision.

just make sure its a safe comfortable one.

personaly I would go with a stand that has sticks and hangs on over the ladder for transportability.I like ladders too but I have to walk at least a mile to get to my stand location(it's on public land)

Its a toss up..

I like fixed for the only reason of less visible to everything/everybody.
