How easy and how noisy are the comercial climbing stands that are out there
i had a climber for a bit, and found that it was noise every time you used it both going up and down the tree. i have since gone to climbing sticks and hanging stands at least they are only noise when you put them up. & you don't have too have a perfect tree with no limbs.

Gonehunting, what brand of climbing sticks and hanging stands do you use and are they hard to get into? The platforms I've seen look very small.

I like lonewolfe climbing sticks and stands super lite and strong. I found the best way to get into your stand is to go higher with your sticks and step down onto the stand.

Thanks. makes sense to do that then try to climb into something. I gotta get me one this year. Ladder stand is not portable enough for me.

What was the brand of climber you were using? I have read alot about the Summit treestands and everyone talks about how quiet they are.

I have a summit climber and I think they are quieter than many other brands but any climber is noisy to use compared to a hang-on that is already there. The trees that they can be used on a very limited as the tree must be fairly straight and uniform and free of branches. It's a pain, and dangerous, to get 3/4 of the way up and then having to readjust your cable because the tree is narrowing so fast
. It's also noisy if you have to cut any limbs going up as well. I like the sticks as well but they aren't any quieter or faster to get you into a tree than a climber IMO, helps with a limby tree though. Mostly I prehang 1/2 dozen stands and use screw in steps. If I'm worried about theft then I use bolt on steps on the bottom few and take the steps off when I leave so if they want the stand they will have to do some climbing to get to it.

Bowtech, what type of hang on treestands do you use.
