Ladder stands are the safest and easiest stand to enter. After tying your bow or rifle to a pull-up rope, you can use both hands to climb the ladder like a step-ladder back home. Ladder stands come in heights up to 20 feet so you don’t have to sacrifice height for convenience and added safety.
Although ladder stands are safe and easy to climb into, they can be very difficult to erect. Many are quite heavy, and you need to leverage the stand against a tree and secure it from the top. Fortunately, the new Ladder Stand Buddy makes this process safe and easy. You can attach the stand solidly from the tree and hunt from it if you wish. Or, once secured to the tree, you can use the manufacturer’s fasteners and use the Ladder Stand Buddy to put up other stands. Watch this video for a quick explanation.
