How high up do you prefer to place your stand. I've seen some of the guys in the hunting shows on TV place their stands 30, 40, even 50 feet up. That just scares the bejeepers out of me.
Thats a great point Mike. The higher you go, the smaller the target becomes...yes you may not be seen or smelled by the deer when you are 30 feet up, but that doesn't much matter if ya can't hit the dang deer either.mikeh416Rigby said:One of the things that quickly became apparant with the tree stands placed over 30 feet up, was that the target area on the animal became increasingly smaller, the higher up they got due to the extreme angle.
Nice tip. Thanks.canadian-ice said:I find 15' - 17' is good enough. If you are in a tree where there is the risk of being spotted, take the time to camo in the stand. A few zip ties and a few spruce bows or leafy oak branches will usualy do the trick.
