How NOT to Hang a Tree Stand (Tree Stand How To)

How NOT to Hang a Tree Stand (Tree Stand How To)

In this video we are going to do something I havn’t done in over 10 years- how to set up a hang on tree stand. Many will debate tree stand vs hunting on the ground; for archery hunts I much prefer tree stands. My major debate is hang on vs ladder stand. A lock on tree stand is often more friendly to those looking for a budget tree stand; however hang on tree stand hunting often presents its own hunting problems. In this video I am going to hang a stand, show you how to set up a tree stand by yourself and give some general tree stand tips.
