    Bill Sweetman that is a nice stand. I would love that in TX.

    I like to white tale hunt in a stand, enclosed overlooking a good 500 yrds around me. I also like to bring my anitifreeze with me and maybe a playboy.

    In new mexico it's walk and stalk. So it depends on where i am.

    I only hunt from the ground. I may someday try out a treestand. But, so far only on the ground. And most usually I'm a 'driver' and not a 'stander'. Furthermore, most of my takes were when I was driving!

    When I was younger and much more agile I always hunted from a stand. Didn't hunt them for about 20 years (a terrible golf addiction) when I got back into it the tree stand was too precarious for my physical adeptness (lack of) causing me to be a ground guy. I do have a really nice pop-up blind that makes it easier to hide.
    I honestly think the chances of me having a mishap in a tree stand now well outweigh any benefit. If I could I would though, being off the ground puts you at an advantage IMO.

    That deer stand is old!!! I plan on taking it down and putting a better one just north of the current one...............I think I'll paint it either camo or flat black ................ the new one will be at least 4'x8' and totally insulated with good "shooting" windows on all sides and a few trade secrets thrown in for good measure.
