I currently have a gorilla hang on stand which I had for several years, with a 20' section of climbing sticks. back in my younger days my friends and I were daredevils and werent scared of anything. We used to climb up our sticks and screw in steps above that yet. Now Iam not so comfortable even going up the climbing stick! Maybe because I never wore a harness, and hearing true stories of people getting hurt or killed in stands. What tree stand do you use and why? I never used a climber so I have no expeirence with that type. I love hunting from a tree especially in archery. what do you guys prefer?
