Re: How long does it take you to set up your stand?

I use the one stick method every now and then with a Quidos web.It takes some practice but it works pretty good.You have to remember,there's a strap on the botton so you get almost 8 feet up with the first hook up.

I can guarantee that I can be 20 feet up in a tree in less than 5 minutes from the time I get there till I'm all set up with a LW handclimber.I don't fold the handclimber up.I starp the seat to platform so both are facing the same way.When I get to the tree,it takes less than 30 seconds to have it off my back and hooked to the tree.It takes me about 8 pulls to get to where I want to hunt.At that point all I do is haul my bow up,nock and arrow and set it in the bowholder that already attached to the rail of the platform.It takes me about a minute to get the sit and climb hooked up but I cam climb faster with it.

Re: How long does it take you to set up your stand?

lots of you are crying foul on the 5 minute climb. i see your point, and the way you describe it, you are probably right. two things that can speed my climb are:
1. i use a primos bow sling and wear my bow on my back when i climb. no pull ropes to mess with. once i reach my hunting height, i'm already holding my bow.
2. i hunt with my quiver on my bow. it never comes off. i also have a small gear bag already attached to my stand when i arrive at the tree. when i get to the top of my climb, i have nothing to hook up to the tree, un hook, or pull up. i just turn around and sit down, and put my bow in the holder that is permanently attached to my stand.

As long as it takes, it's not a race for me. Hope this helps.

What type of strap for the one climbing stick for that extra height?

God Bless the USA.

I just use an extra rope from a lone wolf climbing system.I hooked it on the middle tree brace and let it hang about 2 feet below the first step.It takes some pre-season practice to get it right but it's a viable option when you want to travel light.

Re: How long does it take you to set up your stand?

For hang ons, if it is a tree I use year after year about a half hour by the time I get the screw in steps right, stand hung and leveled, strapped in, chain and lock, bow hanger and rope, cut any branches necessary.

New stands up to an hour.

Ladder stands a half hour.

2F for a while...
