I am looking at ladder stands. This year a lot of my hunting will be on public game lands. I want to keep my expenses low, Maybe around $135.00. I won't have to tote it very far, in most cases under 20 yards. The Game Lands I'll be hunting have very good roads and many miles of them too. All I will have to do is find where the deer are crossing and set up a stand near the crossings. I have looked at many stands on the internet and I like the Guide gear 17 ft extreme comfort stand. But reading reviews of this deer stand customer's say its a real pain to attach to a tree because the floor holds the stand away from the tree so far that its very difficult to attach the strap to the tree. I have installed a stand built very similar before and found the same to be true. Walmart sells one for $101.00 that appears to be easier to attach to a tree from standing on the ladder portion, without being a contortionist. What do ya'll use and why. I may just get the Walmart one because I can just go pick it up. I don't want to spent $300.00 on a climbing stand. I like the extra room of the Guide gear stand but I don't know if the extra room is worth the hassel. Needing a quick set up stand that one could be comfortable all day and easy to remove at the end of the day. What do you like.
