I do both, archery is generally from a stand or blind. Black powder and rifle really depends on the mood I'm in. If it's just fill the freezer I will usually pick a stand. Both my son and I enjoy stalking when it comes to bucks, can't beat the rush of being able to get in close on a deer.
Don't like or use tripods anymore, I had a nasty fall when a leg collapsed. I had just turned to sit when it went down and my pant leg caught the peg coming down. Thought I'd broke my back when I hit, limped back to the truck then had someone take me in to the hospital. Tore a ligament in my knee,fractured two vertebra and broke my scope. Put out for the balance of the season. Real lucky I didn't end up paralyzed and airlifted out.
So even though I use the occasional stand the closer to the ground the better.
