I helped a buddy of mine move some of his stands over the summer and commented on how easy they are to set up and how secure they are to sit in. My wife hunts and agreed they were awesome so, she bought me one for our anniversary. It's a CB "Bow or Gun" Ladder Stand. Bow and Gun Hunting Stands Augusta GA | Bow and Gun hunting stand Aiken SC Sturdy but lightweight and easy to assemble, even in the field. What I really like about it is the chain and lever mechanism used instead of ratchet straps. So much faster to fasten. I was skeptical about ladderstands for bowhunting but actually, I can use this on trees covered in vines I would never try with my climber. I hunted out of one recently; it was mounted on a pretty young sawtooth oak that was loaded with low limbs. This won't be the last one I get. Pricey? Yes. But the easy assembly and installation is priceless imo.
