One that you don't mind being stolen. Ladder stands seem to have legs and walk off regardless of being on public or private land. Because of this I normally buy the cheapest stand I can get on sale at Dicks or Dunhams

Cabelas has some cheap double treestands right now ,and it gives you more room and harder to steal!

Re: What Ladder Stand would u recommend???

I USED MY BUDDYS FIELD AND STREAM ALL SEASON 15 FOOT LADDER. VERY ROOMY I WISHED IT WERE A 20 FOOT. I WENT TO DICKS AND TRIED TO BUY HIM ANOTHER ONE FOR PUTTING UP WITH ME FOR A WEEK OF BEAR HUNTING, THEY NO LONGER SALE THIS STAND. IT HAD A FOLD UP SEAT AND THE PLATFORM WENT TO THE TREE. HE PAYED $75 FOR IT 3 YEARS AGO.

I just bought two Family Tradition Double ladder stands!They are a bit more money,but I think they are worth it,very solid!THEY ARE MADE IN THE U.S.A.!

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

For the price you can't beat the 16' Comfort Zone Lookout for $79.00 at Dicks. The only problem I have with it is that the seat is oversized which doesn't allow you to take advantage of the nice size platform. This is the third season i've used it for bow and rifle.

I use the summit 1.5 man ladder stand or 2 man depending if I'm taking my nephew. You cant beat the durability and comfort of the ladder. The 2 man supports up to 500 lbs and definitely takes two people to set up. It comes standard with three 5 foot ladder sections. I believe you can buy seperate 5 foot ladder sections from summit if need be. I prefer not to be too high up

I just bought 5 sets of 16' climbing sticks from Sportsmans Guide for $24 each, and partnered with a folding hang-on stand, they are a very inconspicuous and sturdy alternative to a ladder stand.....You can walk right by it and not notice it.

Re: What Ladder Stand would u recommend???

I have two summit ladder stands,the single shot magnum(1.5 man) and the double shot(2 man) and have hunted out of many other brands. I would not buy anything other than a summit for stability and craftsmanship. Also, their customer service is second to none. I also have a Summit Titan climber, which is by far the most comfortable climber ever!
